  4. After 1200 miles of deafening banging and rattles from the habitation area I took matters in my own hands and 30 mins with a Philips screwdriver I have achieved nr silence by adjusting all the catches on cupboards🤞 Only driven a short distance since to test but WOW I can not believe it's the same moho and that swift or the dealer couldn't of sorted this before delivery 🙄 If only I could sort everything else so easily ☹
  5. Apart from cars Bikerbri 😉 Seriously though I agree in principal as I too remember things generally being built to last and real customer service - I worked as a shop assistant selling electrical goods through secondary school and college and my bosses would of sacked me if I treated customers how is the norm now! I now believe it doesn't matter if it's cheap or expensive the quality is the same and so is the service - in fact I'm finding cheap is often better than expensive in lots of cases - i.e. the 7 year old Fiat 500c we recently purchased for £5k to use with the M
  6. I owned caravans between 1986 and 2015 - the issues with last 2 vans contributed to my decision to sell up and give up touring Like you say Gordon I thought spending twice the money on a MH from a different manufacturer I could get back to enjoying the freedom of touring again I've had a rough 18 months health wise and this was supposed to be a fresh start Feeling pretty stupid right now 😳
  7. I reported faults within 30 days and gave them opportunity to sort but they now want another attempt I just wanted to get it sorted as I really like the MH and getting another will probably have similar issues to resolve. It took me a long time to find an auto we liked I'm so sick of the attitude of dealers and manufacturers towards customers - went through this with LR and they also thought plenty of new customers out there to replace unhappy customers but now it's caught up with them - swift should take note 😡
  8. Just over a month into ownership and a growing list of faults🙄 Travelled 300 miles last week for dealer to carry out repairs and despite 2 days in workshop only a handful were sorted and they added 3 to the list through incompetence - now have scratches to cooker glass lid, damage to flooring and vehicle battery draining due to solar panel smart charging setting being switched off by technician😲 I really hoped Swift were going to better than Elddis but looks like I've jumped out of 1 pile of dung into another😭 Head is telling me reject - heart is saying giv
  9. Waste and fresh tank drains on my 2019 Swift Bessacarr are motorised - they close automatically when finished draining or when ignition key turned on so I'm guessing the OP scenario is impossible Previous caravans had hinged flaps which I admit I never closed believing air flow would dry out waste and closing them would encourage smell - due to movement when towing they would drip or drop small quantity of grey water on roads but I never considered this was a problem before now 😳
  10. Towing the Fiat is much easier than towing a caravan and leaving the moho on site then using the Fiat is working really well so far especially when we can get the roof down - wish I'd done it years ago and saved the stress/cost of buying 2 Range Rover Sports to pull twin axles 🤣
  11. Before buying my A-frame vehicle I read this https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/a-frames-and-dollies/a-frames-and-dollies There are differing statements by A-frame suppliers but as they're biased I wouldn't rely on them
  12. It's a shame Spain and Portugal have this attitude when opinion is as a member of the EU visiting not living you are ok as legal in UK 🙄 Makes me want to avoid visiting Spain and Portugal really but I do like Portugal and hard to get their without going through Spain 😉 Car hire first time me thinks and possibly trailer if we do it regularly 👍
  13. As OP I don't mind going off topic 👍 Always loved MGs and was sad to part with mine - I considered a replacement but couldn't bring myself to buy a Chinese version and Swmbo hated the Red TF so gave up on idea 😳 Funny enough I was searching for a glass rear window just before I parted with mine and I had just bought a black hard top for longer distances 😎
