With careful packing and limiting the clothing you can still collect 240L of wine in a Freelander without exceeding either the cars GVM or the vans MTPLM, remember you have an extra 100Kgs in the car when towing as you won't exceed the the 100kph when towing Whistle Whistle


Oh the van will be well filled as well as the back of the car, think we brought back equivalent to 300 bottles of wine on previous trips. Have considered selling the children before returning and using their seats for additional capacity! Rolling with laughter Landrover - turning owners into mechanics since 1948

Ah children, we never took that form of baggage or the dog, he's 30kgs and that is about 30l in boxes wine, one must prioritise just think of the litres if you leave the kids at home, you obviously spoil them: Laughing my PC is slightly to the right of Genghis

Wales 2013 Freelander 2 SD4 XS Auto Mauritius Blue

Well back from the 3rd trip this year - a weekend around Stratford Upon Avon at a site called Riverside.
http://www.stratfordcaravans.co.uk/touring/about-touring

Nice site definitely will go there again if only because we love the area anyway and the site is a lovely location near the river and a relatively short walk from town.

Up on Friday after picking our lad from nursery at 1pm , there by 4pm so decent run up including hitching time etc.

Saturday we waled into Stratford itself, not to far though far enough as my wife is currently some 6+ months pregnant (and yes I did suggest we drove/taxi etc but she wanted to walk) - we love Stratford, just a shame our favorite hotel has gone silly price wise.

Sunday was spent at the Gaydon Land Rover show having booked the Freelander in as an entry (can't go wrong at the price) - always an enjoyable day there though I did spend more than is sensible in the shop (over £200 mainly on books and a few little things for our boy)

Monday an early start home to be back by 12pm - another good run.

All in all a very pleasant weekend - looking forward to our next weekend away currently booked for mid June.

The "last of the line" Freelander 2, an Aintree Green Metropolis with Ivory Windsor interior, was missing from the mezzanine in the Jaguar Heritage Centre (where you took the bulk of your photographs of the others). I did enquire as to its whereabouts, as it was there in February, but the staff didn't know exactly, and seemed to think it was out on loan for the summer elsewhere in the country. Shame really, as its the perfect spec and colour combination for mine when I come to replace it (means: if and when I ever come to replace it) Rolling with laughter MY13 HSE Lux.......faultless since new.

3 weeks in France with the caravan, cant wait. Cant actually remember where
abouts we're going this year, my wife deals with such matters, I drive. First time with the freelander, always had the disco for the last 4 times we went, the boot capacity for vast quantities of wine will be missed.


So we're away on Sunday Thumbs Up
Kind of scary temperatures in France at the minute, 45 degrees C on Friday Shocked
Hope the Freelander was well tested in hot climate towing conditions!
Got the van out of storage last weekend to discover the Censored motor movers werent working. Ran through all the obvious checks with connections, fuses, handset batteries, checked voltage in leisure battery all to no avail. Rang Truma on Monday and they said they need the control unit and handset back to them where they will repair it free of charge, not bad since its 7 years old and only has a 5 year warranty. Only issue is they wont prioritise it to have it back to me in time before we go away, despite my pleas. So looks like we'll be doing a bit of pulling and hauling if the pitches arent big enoug to get the van reversed onto easily, and the big twin axle is a pain to shift about manually Rolling Eyes

Update,
Control unit defective and cant be repaired so had to bite the bullet and buy a new one which worked out almost half the price of the complete system. But it arrived this morning, fitted and working 👍 Landrover - turning owners into mechanics since 1948

Wales 2013 Freelander 2 SD4 XS Auto Mauritius Blue

Back from a brief weekend away down West, not far from Tenby at a site near West Williamston.
Not many pictures this time but it was a lovely quiet and laid back site called Tything Barn and worth a visit if it is somewhere you are interested in trying.
