Greetings one and all.As a new boy to all this I hope that I shall be able to pick the brains of some of you well knowledged

people.The outfit I have stared out with is a 2006 Bailey Senator Indiana (it's the van her ladyship wanted) pulled by an Omega 2.2 cd Auto saloon. I know this combination is not the 85% recommended but as I drive a 44 tonne artic for a living that should help.

Welcome to the Forum Dirk, as someone just beginning to tow a caravan, you will find this site most helpful. Being able to drive HGVs will stand you in good stead for hitching up a caravan; you will already be used to the speeds we can pull our little homes at!

Please bear in mind though that a caravan will react differently to a trailer, although they are both towed they are not the same. Also bear in mind that you cannot load your caravan with a fork lift, despite all the shoes Her Ladyship wants to take. It's still ok to stop at Greasy Joes on the way to site though, just be prepared for some unsavoury looks ;o)

Welcome Dirk. I have always had that feeling that I was associating with the right class of person on this forum with the likes of Lord B. and now Dirk introducing "her ladyship". I can see that my future is bright without having to make donations to any political party. I can socialise as good as anyone so consider me you graces for the next gong.

Your obedient and humble servant

Lord B I am truely hurt. I thought I could rely on you as a trusted friend to put a word in the right place for me to become a member of the elite society that I admire from a lower station in life.
