Van-X Premium Curtains Review

In the first of our winter upgrades we install and review Van-X’s range of T4 side and tailgate curtains

Getting a decent set of curtains sorted for the van has been long on my list of to-do items ever since we first bought it last year. After looking at various reviews and seeing an installation of the Van-X curtains in a friend’s T4 I decided to take the plunge and order a full set (2 side curtains and a tailgate).

Motorhome and Caravan Show 2019

We take a day trip to the NEC to see what 2020 has in store for the leisure vehicle market

Last week we had the chance to visit the Motorhome and Caravan show at the NEC in Birmingham to see the vast selection of caravans, motorhomes, campers and related accessories that are available for 2020. This was the first time that either of us have visited the show and on the basis of what we saw we’ll definitely be making the trip again.

Campsite Review: Cheltenham Racecourse

We have a quick overnight stop at our first Caravan and Motorhome Club site

Recently we had to visit Cheltenham for an appointment and, as we were on the way back home from Old Oaks, we decided to have a look around the area to try and find a site for a quick overnight stop.

TF Gear Sandwich Toaster

We put a £10 RidgeMonkey copy to the test

As part of our recent trip away we decided to pop over to Go Outdoors and have a quick browse to see if there was any good value kit we could pick up. Whilst looking round the cooking section we noticed the TF Gear Sandwich Toaster at the very reasonable discount card price of £10 and thought this might be a cheap alternative to the RidgeMonkey that we’d heard a lot of good things about. At the moment a RidgeMonkey is around £30 so we picked up two of these instead and set off to see if they would be any good.

Campsite Review: Old Oaks

In our first proper trip away we take a visit to the Old Oaks campsite in Glastonbury to see what all the fuss is about

Last week we had the opportunity to go away for a couple of days with the T4 and use it for the first time properly since we bought it. Initially we had decided to head towards Devon and Cornwall for the week but unfortunately our plans had to change and this meant we could only get away for a couple of nights instead of the week we’d hoped for.
