we used the Xplore for the first time over Easter. As soon as I disconnected the mains cable I tripped the tracker. It tripped again 30 minutes into the journey. I was told that I should switch the tracker off before moving off. On the return journey disconnecting the mains hook up tripped the tracker again even though it was switched off. Our first impressions of the van were mixed, it is basic as expected but adequate for our use. The cons first The rail on the pull out section which converts the front benches to a double bed fell off. it was glued and was attached with small screws into the chip board rail. This is totally inadequate and a better method was used to reattach. I reversed the direction of the screws so they went into the real wood of the rail. 3 heads of stainless screws show but so what. The doors on the wardrobes are held closed by very strong magnetic catches. My wife gave a tug to open one and the bottom hinge pulled away from the carcase. The screws in my opinion aren't long enough and it was re attached with longer screws. If it comes off again I shall use bolts through the hinge and wood even though the heads wil be visible. Practicality over appearance. A screw fell out of the sink. Annoying little things not worth a warranty repair. On the plus side, even though the whip tv aerial didn't work at home we got good reception in Wales. The hot air heating is good we only ever needed a low setting even on a very chilly night. All in all a good first trip.
