knocking noise on cornering

Hi guys, Daisy (80GX) has developed a knocking noise from her left front
wheel (I think) when you pull out of a junction on full right lock. To start
with it was only when towing the caravan but now it seems to be most of the
time.
Any ideas what it might be?
cheers

Most likely is a Birfield joint needs replacing, particularly if the noise
to one side only - it's the part that allows the wheels to be turned and
still driven.
Just google birfield joint and click on image search and you will get lots
of pictures of them.
Meantime try to limit the power with full lock, worst case is full lock and
reversing up a hill with loose surface.
