    Got HM 2010 tent. We pack down the tent and then put tent poles and any other poles plus side panels / gazebo on top before we zip on and close up the PVC over.

    My towball height is 470mm and it drops about 15-20mm on coupling (Audi A4 platkar).
    Plus I have bigger tyres 245/70R16 than stock standard (previous owner matched size to his Hilux).

    "Fixings for the fridge"? Is that just a NL baseplate or a more creative (less expensive) solution? I see re-positioning of the fridge gives the space for the fridge side panel.
