"You are being far too modest Tony. I would have expected nothing less than 100%, simply because it has always been so ever since I started caravanning in the mid 1950's. Dog owners versus Others has been an annual event, starting in the early…"

Rob van der Werf replied to Timothy Byrne's discussion "The BIG hill end of M5 Exeter" (A380?)

"Hi Tim, we tow an Elddis Shamal (1.700 kgs) with a Volvo XC70 D5 automatic and had no problems on the A380 or any other steep hill. Great towcar with lots of torque, but not a 7-seater. Perhaps the Volvo XC90 is an option?"
