If you read all the OP's post he does tell you!

XVI yes?

As well is two words!
How does a sage know everything about everything? or does he? or does he just think he does?
Remember, if you buy something you bought it, not brought it.

The single or twin 7 pin plugs and sockets can almost be considered as obsolete.
All new caravans are equipped with a 13 pin plug, as are all factory fitted towing electrics

That may well be true, but there are probably still millions of them in regular use. How many trailers are fitted with 13 pin plugs? What percentage of caravan buyers buy new?

all well and good when your working ,not so good on a pension when you have to go with whats affordable ,in fact if we were still both working a caravan would be obsolete as it was simpler to jump on a plane to guaranteed sunshine something we did at least three times a year .

Not all factory fitted tow bars are full 13 pin. BMW towbars are 13pin but only 7 pin loom, which is European standard.

Quite so, Black Fox. That's precisely why we have a 1992 caravan and a 2000 car. Pension doesn't go far at all. Been looking for another slightly newer car, but nothing suitable that's affordable.
