Carravanners Getting Gas and Hello. by Dave D[_3_]
My first post for a long time but here goes. The siege in Toulouse should be noted carefully by those dear NG readers who still believe caravanners can be rendered unconscious by some sort of sleeping gas introduced into their vans and subsequently robbed. If there was any type of gas that could be practically be used then the French police or security services would be using it. Recently...

TV Antennas for caravans/motorhomes by Brian Reay.
I've been looking at the various TV antennas for caravans/motorhomes and I'm curious to hear (read) peoples' views. Obviously there is the option of the (essentially) mini domestic version rigged on a pole once you have parked up. Clearly you can get some height and have an amplifier, plus more gain if you get a larger antenna. But there is this fuss of the set up. Then there is the fixed...

Best way to sell an elderly caravan? by Roger Mills[_2_]
My wife and I have reluctantly decided that it's time to give up caravanning. Having acquired a holiday flat a couple of years ago, we spend all our spare time there and we know that, realistically, we're not going to be using the van again. It's a 1991 Bailey Pageant Magenta which we have owned from new - so it doesn't owe us a lot. It still has some life in it, and it would be nice to...

Bit of a leak... by Nige[_4_]
When i got the van a few months ago it was bone dry allover, i tested it myself with a damp meter & the wals floor etc all good. I noticed last weekend there was a bit of wet wall under the wallpaper, around the top seal at the front inside one of the lockers & a bit under the window, too. I want to nip this in the bud double quick, so i have installed a few 'damp rid' devices nearby & it...

Electrical problem by Nige[_4_]
2003 Bailey Pagaent, last weekend the heater fuse overheated to the point of melting the fused spur unit. It had been fitted with a 5a fuse & the load is rated at 8.8amps, i bought another fused spur & put in a 10a fuse & it's OK, but still gets a bit warm around the fuse area. No breakers tripped & the RCD didnt go, just overheated & melted the fused spur?

Is there a book of caravan data? by McKevvy
Because I'll be buying a caravan in the next 6 or 7 weeks or so and I need to know the towing weights, etc to drive with. I'm asking specifically for data for older caravans in the region of 500 - 1000 and the details aren't listed on the manufactures website. I'm looking for either a printed book or a comprehensive website. Thanks in advance. McK.

Problem with Witter swan neck towbar by effdubblya
I've just bought a new (to me) car which came complete with a the above towbar which appears brand new. It is the one which inserts vertically under the bumper. I can't for the life of me get it to click into place. I have watched a demo on utube of how to do it but the retaining button won't pop out when I pull the tow bar down. I can get it to work when I press the small release button when...

wheel size by polly filler
Hi all I am just changing insurance companies, and to comply with the new company rules which states that when left unattended, attached to the car, the caravan should have a wheel clamp attached. In my handbook it states that the whels are "165R13" Does this mean that I have 13" wheels on my van? I need to know for the size of the wheel clamp I need to get. Thanks in advance
