Here's a great money saving tip for all caravaners: Keep it on your drive and have all the creature comforts of home only a couple of steps away (please?) ;-)

Keep ours on a farm just around the corner from the beach so we just tow it round when we use it.

Hate towing it

Wife and kids think it's the best thing we ever bought apart from the rib of course

Really looking forward to the summer!

I told my mrs I wouldn't tow ours more than fifty miles and she wanted to go further she would have to take over. Her face was a picture when I stopped 5 miles short of the site and said she would have to take over as I had reached my limit!!

Interesting. I'd have thought that a lad building a 9m RIB for himself would be more accommodating as regards chauffeuring the missus about. I know I would...

Never tow mine anywhere. It's 40' long and plumbed to main water/drainage & electric. It's home for the rib and tractor 200 meters from the sea
