  1. Just a quick poll to see what you feel about visiting caravan dealers over the next couple of months. Just one click required and we'll feed back the results to dealers... Thanks, Jon.
  2. This should arrive in members email inboxes over the next day but just in case... Where do we start? Good grief it’s been different!!! (sometimes there are just not enough exclamation marks) We’d been planning and rolling out a whole series of changes to CaravanTalk and then the lockdown hit. But not to be defeated by a little pandemic we’ve kept calm and carried on. Here’s what we’ve been doing: We pretty much all know that the NEC isn’t going to be ready for the next Caravan Show so we’ve repurposed the top of our forum to be ‘The Digital Caravan Show’ and are inviting companies to show you what they’ve got. Early days yet as we only told them today but keep your eye on the section in the coming months. If you know any companies who may be interested why not forward this email to them. It pays the bills (mostly) but we don’t like banner advertising. We are trying to encourage companies to post information and advice at the top of sections and topics (for a fee) so we can do away with the adverts. It’s much more effective for them and better for you. The whole front end of the website has been rebuilt so that we can more easily add content which will be something that we’ll be doing more of this year, and looking for budding authors to help out. Hint! Now, this was a challenge but we’ve also rebuilt our ‘Caravan Specifications Finder’. It’s a bit different but the new version means that we can more easily bring it up to date and make sure that your new awning fits. For good measure, we’ve also rebuilt the dealer and storage finder tools. More to come on this but it’s a start. There’s a new section in town with nearly 6000 posts. Caravanning and Coronavirus (Covid 19), no surprise there then. Yep, the forum’s been slow on Saturday mornings. We’ve added some expensive go-faster chips to the server and it seems to have done the trick. We’ve bought chastity pants for our rapidly growing puppy Missy as we can’t take her companion Ted to the vets for an alteration. If anyone fancies a cockapoo puppy, let us know, we need a plan B. ----- Interesting topics from the forum selected by our very own moderators: Power my 12v TV from Solar panel or Battery Adding a new window Electrical confusion Avondale renovation Funniest thing you've seen Dream Outfit Unidentified Object Coronavirus virtual caravan tour Broken door handle on Swift Challenger Stay safe everyone!
  3. Apologies, as mentioned before the thread is getting a bit long and causing some system issues. Could you ‘pick up the thread’ in new ones please. Thanks, Jon.
  4. Hi All, As so many good questions, answers and comments are getting swamped by the size of this thread we'll be locking it soon and asking members to start new specific threads (parks closed, infection control etc). Hopefully, this will help members and visitors get to the information they need more quickly. Please feel free to go ahead and start or continue new topics in advance of us locking this one. Thanks, Jon.

  6. Just bringing this topic under a more neutral heading/title
  7. Try this: https://www.caravantalk.co.uk/caravan-specifications/
  8. Just to let everyone know that Prima Leisure are one of our commercial supporters. Please have a go at the competition, it's a good one. Jon.
  9. This competition is now closed. Winners will be contacted shortly, good luck!
  10. Nope, still there: http://www. caravantalk. co. uk/community/forum/66-insurance/ http://www. caravantalk. co. uk/community/forum/61-clubs-and-associations/
  11. Sorry for the downtime everyone, the upgrade proved to be a bit more of a challenge than usual. We'll continue stability testing now and tomorrow to ensure we are back on track. Enjoy the weather, we can see it through the windows
  12. Date/Time Affected - Friday 14/09/2012 23:00 -> Saturday 15/09/2012 03:00 Summary ------------ To improve overall performance we will be undertaking an upgrade to the version of the firewall software we are running. This upgrade will cause several short outages in service (10 minutes) which we hope to minimise, however we are pencilling in a four hour 'at risk' window in case any issues do occur.
  13. Later this year a new BBQ web site called BBQ Talk will be launching with the possibility of a section for caravanner's. The name's a coincidence by the way, even though its being developed by the guys in the next office to CT headquarters. They are looking for some input from any keen BBQ'ers and the more they get with a caravanning angle the more chance there is of a decent caravan section. The current site at the address is just a few holding pages. We've seen the real thing in development and it's looking good. So any caravan related BBQ tips, recipes or the like pop over to www. bbqtalk. co. uk
  14. We thought we'd share some 2011 forum statistics with you: 2,034,765 visits and 11,491,253 page views The best one yet, by a long way, and almost entirely due to the posts of our active members. Thanks guys and gals and also thanks to those of you who prefer to just read rather than post, the audience is as important as the play CTAdmin (Jon)
  15. If it helps, we also have our own caravan dealer directory on CaravanTalk (the link is set to 25 miles from MK). If you choose a company that's on our list please drop a short note about their standards and/or recommend them (or not). CTAdmin
