We have been looking at the same caravan you have purchased and would be really interested when you get the opportunity to tow how your volvo xc90 proforms. We tow our bailey with our 2005 xc90 returned from Scotland covering 1500 miles towing with ease.
Enjoy your trip to Seahouses really is a nice area.

Regards Mike
Thanks Mike we traded in the Swift conquer 645 same weight and the Xc was very good . Although the Bermuda was empty , it towed okay, we will try a weekend in Dec down at Rother valley at the new site there to try it out . As for Seahouses a no go at the moment

Nice van but the 8ft width rules it out for me ... my narrow drive couldn't accomodate it. Fortunately Swift are still making the Elegance in a narrower body shell ... not that I am ready to change mine yet anyway.

A few freinds have the E&P levelling system on their Elegances ... looks awesome.
