Hello,
we have just purchased a Second Hand Pennine Fiesta Trailer Tent. Anything to look out for?
It seems in good condition, tows really well, easy to put up.
Is there any "issues" I should look out for ?
Thanks for any advice.
Geoff & Bev

Welcome Geoff and I am sure you will enjoy your Fiesta like we did. One thing to remember if the hob is similar to our old one, is never to put plates or cups on this if you are using the grill, we had a couple of melted items. Just keep it dry when storing and do not leave food in it for long periods if you are not using it due to rodents etc.

we have a pennine fiesta and we love it we are now going through a stage where we think we want a caravan but I don't think you can get no better than a fc so are now thinking of going to a pathfinder just for a bit more living space but all I have to say is they are brilliant easy to tow we tow with a 1.4 mokka and it tow brilliant.
what I have found is like what rwig55 said about the stoves is when you are using the grill not only don't put nothing on top but make sure you lift the work top space that covers the grill as my misses told me to do this but I didn't listen obviously I no best :/ and it burnt the whole work top underneath :(
but other than that there isn't really a lot to say they are brilliant and where people say things go wrong with there caravan all the time I have had my pennine fiesta for 4 years now and it has never done me bad.

good luck and happy camping

Thanks for the advice.
Could you tell me what the little tube is for next to the fridge door? It's on a spring and pulls in and out but doesn't seem to do anything ?

Hi Geoff, if you don't have any luck here, try the Pennine Owners Club page on Facebook, someone should be able to solve your little mystery there!
