Caravan New Year’s Resolutions

1: Check my weight Like my owners, I tend to put on weight over the holiday seasons, so losing a few kilos here and there would not only benefit me, but other road users. So I’m going to chuck out anything that hasn’t been used, or isn’t really needed. Surely they...
