Sounds like a great trip! First major trip when I've finished by rebuild will be to go down to the Costa Blanca - the same places I went as a child back in 82/83 in a CF340 Advantura. :)

Enjoy the trip. we just made the longest trip to date in our Cf - Newquay in Cornwall. The old girl did great, not missing a beat there and back , although there were times she had a few more beats lol. Have a great time.

Enjoy Dave,
hope you have a trouble free trip πŸ˜‰
I know the trip we did a couple years ago to Britany was faced with what could go wrong, but only self inflicted with wrong fuel addedπŸ™ƒ.
Half the fun was the journey aswell as the camping.
All the best
Tor

Hi Tor,The Ford Autosleeper has only done 66000 miles I've had it 12 months last June and done an oil change and filter although I had only done 4000 miles in it the other week a rear tyre fault on the motorway forced me to call the breakdown service out I've since replaced the two rear tyres I have uk and European breakdown and recovery including home start with my new insurance company so it's there if I need it. I was amazed to find when it comes to towing the caravan the mpg doesn't differ much, I went to Pontefract the weekend before last without the caravan and got 28.11 mpg this last week I've been over to Whitby towing the caravan and more occupants and still got 27.29 mpg that's fill to fill.so I'm looking forward to the Spanish trip.
