    Re: TV in caravan

    Re: TV in caravan

    Light a fire outside the caravan, much cheaper, and in my opinion the whole reason we go camping. I watch enough TV at home ;D

    Re: Tesla 1million mile battery..

    Maybe so, but how much do you pay for the car? Me thinks a Tesla costs about as much as your Landrover of choice.

    Tesla 1million mile battery..

    The same way Tesla measure the performance of their batteries. It’s called technology and it is not at all unique to these 2 companies.
