Hi folks 
We have just had our Verona GT65 serviced and damp was found on the offside, near the wardrobe the readings were in the order of 100 percent. I was told on the quiet that damp is proving very common on the Alu Tec build and Bailey are very aware of the problem, we have had to wait six weeks before this could be attended to by our dealer.

Posted by Jaydug in Jaydug's Blog, 22 June 2017 · 271 views

Being in the happy position of being able to hitch up and go whenever it suits, I had been watching the ten day weather forecasts for a settled period of dry days. Such a period looked favourable starting during the 2nd week of June – so I quickly packed the van and was ready to leave on Tuesday the 13th . My chosen location was in Shropshire.. .

Hawkeye's 2016 French Holiday

Posted by hawkaye in hawkaye's 2016 holiday, 29 August 2016 · 773 views

Background;
We left the caravan in France in 2015 so it could be used as a site office and refuge by my s-i-l, who is having a house renovated about 2 hours drive south-east of Paris.

We picked up my elder son and gf setting off at 7am to aim for a Dover-Calais crossing and arrival early evening. It was the fastest, least eventful journey we have ever ma...

Butting Heads

Posted by Roofydoof in Roofydoof's Blog, 22 August 2016 · 1,069 views

For all I love caravanning and camping with my partner I also dread it at the same time. He can be extremely gung ho and if things don't go right instantly he throws a strop and quits. We don't work well together when setting up camp (at all)
I like to pace myself and set things out in the order they need to be done as to achieve harmony but he likes to...

The Second Day, Half An Awning!

Posted by cassoude in cassoude's Blog, 27 March 2016 · 1,650 views

We woke to snow showers in the morning, though none had laid. We drove to Scarborough to shop in Morrisons, we needed a frying pan for my breakfast, as well as other sundry items - we never seem to stop buying things for the 'van!
When we returned we decided to put up the awning that was lurking under the bed. After mighty struggles (no wonder they call t...

The Van Is Now Mine I bought the Coachman Amara (badged Festival) MY 2009 at the end of June.
Since then I have been away on four relatively local trips with it, and one long one, to north Wales.

At the end of our time in Samoens it is time to head home.  We intend taking it a bit more slowly than the two day dash down here, so our first stop has been planned for Langres.  It’s one of these places we have meant to visit before, partly because being close to the autoroute it’s somewhere  we have p...

I had to have a break from working on the caravan in the cold due to the flu and a chest infection at the start of February but soon got back up!
 
When I last left here the wooden panel was on the back and painted. That worked well.
 
So on a cold day in FEBRUARY again me, mate Brian, his son Matt and my youngest Owen all went up again as Brian...
