Quick Links: Motorhome | Bike | Dog | Other bits & bobs


Bike Phone Mount – 360° Adjustable Aluminum Mobile Phone Holder. Don’t get lost again, track your bike ride using your SatNav App on your phone whilst riding.

Kryptonite Bike Lock – Evolution New-U Standard lock useful to take with you on rides out.

Puncture prevention kit – This Innertube sealant can save you a long walk back.

ROCKBROS Cycling Bell – Great safety warning bell. We always warn walkers and appreciate it when walking our dogs and riders use their bell to warn us they are approaching.


Butternut Box – Healthy FRESH dog food. Convenient for taking in our motorhome on touring trips. Simply pop in the freezer and defrost as needed. Read more in our review here.

Dog Lead (Kong) 5 m retractable – These are the best extending leads we’ve owned. Sturdy, comfortable grip, not to heavy, super easy button mechanism. They come in small, medium and large sizes (we have medium for our spaniels). Also several colours, we have x2 bright red. Highly recommend for days out walking & exploring when you can’t let your dog off lead but they want to run and explore.

Julius K-9 Harness – These are great quality, strong harnesses with a really useful grab handle to lift or hold your dog when needed.

HEAD Tennis Balls – Our girls LOVE tennis balls. We’ve tried all sorts of dog toys and dog balls. By far these are the best for quality and durability. They last so much longer, can withstand a good chew and without falling to bits.

Other bits and bobs

Idahoan Mash – Discovered these at the NEC MH show.  If you have not tried it get some – you will not look back.  Delicious fluffy mash in 1min. Amazing. Several flavours; cheese, garlic, butter, herb etc. This saves 20mins of potato prep, gas and steam.

Ordnance Survey – We all know Satnav’s can’t be trusted right? Don’t get lost again. Always have a trusted map to hand, whether a good paper map or via the OS maps online app.

SiteGround – The website hosting company we use here at Touring Tails. Highly recommended for easy set up, fast, secure, reliable & excellent support team available to help with queries. If you’re considering setting up a website then definitely check out Siteground.
