    Not heard of it, but hope it is excellent. Seems like a really good idea, if they managed to get the implementation right. Just make sure you have enough seatbelts...

    Rally in Cornwall

    :Angry:First time posting. Not sure if I have the right section!!

    Did I read somewhere about a rally in Cornwall this month? Or is there a rally at the Royal Cornwall Show this June?

    Definitely this. It would be odd for a van with four travelling seats not to have sleeping places for that many people.

    Does your V5 say 5 designated seats? I've come across a few vans with more seat belts than designated seats.

    We have an adria Coral SLT with four full seat belts and one cross over seat belt, never checked the V5. Dogs have a belt each and the grandson has his car seat fully belted in.....can always leave the hubby behind if the V5 says different :Eek!:

    Just out of interest WHERE is the car seat? The reason I ask is that if it is in the seat nearest the aisle they can tip over when you go round a corner as there is nothing to stop it at the side of the seat. :Doh:

    It is next to the window Minx, on the two seater dinette seat, no chance of it tipping over, it is solid in there x

    We have a Cabbunk, we take 1 grandrunt at a time.
    The smaller ones see it as their own special bed.
    They love it.
    Many will knock them, but they work and are robust.
    It's a simple canvas type camp bed affair which is put up in seconds.
    Similar to the things you used to be able to get to go over the front seats on a V Dub campervan.
    Saves making a bed up for the runts when you still want the use of the lounging area.

    Fab, they do look good, but needed to hear it from someone who had one. Won't be taking Peanut again until August so will look at investing in one then :Smile:
