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. Wh.. .
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.. .

After a few days around Civray, in the garden of Julia's brothers house in the Poitou-Charentes , we found ourselves, in light drizzle, headed south down the N10 towards Bordeaux, arriving at the campsite at about 15:30hrs.
No, you can relax this not the start of another epic drivel fest as we’re not away in the ‘van again – although we have been in a ‘van – quite a few as it happens, thanks to a visit to the Caravan & Camping Show at the NEC.
To me, our weekend start around 7pm Friday night when I’ve finishe.. .
Most of you will be aware of the damage I caused to my caravan last September. It was
written off by the Insurers, because the damage was estimated at nearly £14,000! Door
and frame smashed, three foot crease behind the door,and some internal damage behind
the table cupboard and wardrobe. Also the nearside wheel.
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...
Throughout my story there has been a variety of nice men, but this time
I have excelled myself with a total of SIX all at once!
Those of you who have been interested in my tale will know that I moved here to a bungalow in readiness for old age, and after a light bulb moment in the middle of the night before removal lorries arrived, I envision...
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...

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.
Until last weekend (end of August) I had only stopped at sites with full facilities; being cautious, if not apprehensive, to ensure that I could have more factors working in my favo...
While in southern Italy recently with very high temperatures the dome of our doubled glazed Heiki roof light came apart with the lower section dropping down, we closed it down to get it to go back together.
has anyone had this problem and how did you fix it?
Can anybody tell me if there is a caravan smart repairer in the Hornsea East Riding of Yorkshire area as I have trawled the internet without success.I would appreciate any information (Please see photo's of the type of repair that I require mainly on the ribbed section).
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...
Continuing with this blog, I have just returned home from our last event at RAF Rougham in Bury St. Edmonds, home to many B17 American pilot during the Second World War. The Tower still stands today and is a memorial to the men and women that served their during those dark days, this should differently be on your list of places to visit if you ever find y...
What better way to get through the first cold, grey weeks of the year than by planning a caravan holiday? Often, organising a holiday can be as enjoyable as going on one – so take your time, make a nice cup of tea and enjoy.
If you aren’t sure where to start, here are a few tips:
When: perhaps you are limited by your job or...
