Hi, I'm fairly new to this myself - we celebrated the first birthday of getting our Northstar a week ago.

You have come to the right place for help and advice as I've asked quite a few (possibly stupid) questions and everybody on here has been helpful and willing to give advice & share their experiences.

It's a pity that I didn't discover demountables years ago as we've done more camping in a year than we did in 5 with the old VW T25.

Thanks guys for the warm welcomes.
We have a 2006 Ranger Demountable. Seeking to find a suitable double bike rack to fit the rear of the camper. Problem it is rear door entry.
Also have a Air bag system fitted to the carrying vehicle a Crew cab pickup. It has a small air leak which I have been unable to find it will total deflate from 64psi over a period of 3 days. Tried the normal soapy liquid trick. It only loses air whilst under load. Help !!!

Have you been able to fully check the bag itself? Is it a new system, or did you inherit it? If you've checked all the connectors and valves, this may be the only remaining possibility.

Welcome Roger, when you say Crew cab, is it a Double cab or King cab ( Sort of 1 1/2 cab)?
