    Default Sprite scout

    Hi, i bought a sprite scout 2001 Model, I am going to take this on as a project as there needs to be a lot of work to be done to the caravan as it is not in the best condition, and I want to make it more practical for me and my wife. Already got a good contact for new windows. This is going to be a long term project. I bought this caravan as I do not have an EB license as yet. This is my first caravan, any advice would be great. Thank you Click image for larger version.

    Projects are always nice,my advice...reseal it first,go buy sone white sikaflex,scrape out the old sealer and wipe clean the areas then use masking tape to line out where to be sealed,after applying the sikaflec pull the masking tape of and use a sunlight liquid water solution to smooth out the sikaflex with your finger

    Am I missing something? Thought an EB license is required for any caravan, irrespective of the weight thereof?

    If whatever you are towing weighs less than 750kg loaded you do not need an EB license.

    No, as far as I have read up, if the weight of the item being towed is below 750kg you do not have to have an EB license. If I am wrong please let me know

    If you are going to drill one or two holes, then yes, but I'd get a plastic drill if it's for more than that.
