  1. Let her hair dry naturally then use gas powered curling tongs. Where there is a will there is a way. Enjoy.
  2. Saw a similar situation in Houghton le Spring just last week. Assumed they were drying the awning out.
  3. Pity about rule out Scotland because the Camping and Caravan Club Site at Dunbar ticks all your boxes. Its easy to get to up the A1, not far from Edinburgh, fantastic views, lovely fishing harbour and oldie world small town centre. Pity you will miss this treasure.
  4. We were on Springhill Farm Caravan Site just north of Seahouses this time last year. They have pods and a bunkhouse. Total nightmare. They have a quiet rule for after 11 p. m. when noise did lessen somewhat. But the noise and behaviour of the younger generation was unacceptable. Residents of the bunkhouse left an awful lot to be desired. I told them we would never come back. Definitely wont return. Found an adult only small site adjacent.
  5. Save your money and stick with bricks and mortar. Get a tourer and if needs be get a season pitch. Avoid statics. I have a tourer and had a static caravan on an eleven month site (did not live there just visited) for ten years. Had a tourer on a season pitch for 25 years. So I can speak from experience. Buy a static and you might as well give the Park owner your wallet.
  6. I've tried telephoning but "we are extremely busy". Gave up The policy schedule says there is no cover for: At Home Onward Travel Courtesy Car Battery Replace European Rescue. No mention of Arrival Return or Re-unite. Renewal not due until 29th April. Will try and phone them at a less busy time. Feel that I will be cancelling and going with the CCs May Day.
  7. Hi - I should have said that it is the Arrival cover. The renewal states that I have RToadside Rescue (up to 5 call outs) Key Return; Motor Legal Care and Recovery (to a garage up to 10 miles away). For this they are asking £104 which I thought was steep.
  8. Ive been with the RAC via the Camping and Caravan Club for roadside recovery. I am sure that when I joined back in 2010 I was covered, in the event of a breakdown of either the car or problems with the caravan, for them to take us on to our holiday destination and return us home. As with everything the price has gone up and up every year. My renewal had arrived and it now appears I only have roadside recovery of repair or take the outfit to a repairer within 10 miles. I have tried to do a comparison with the Caravan Club's Green Flag/Mayday and their prices are an awful lot more competitive on a similar cover. In addition for the premium I have been asked to pay by the RAC the Caravan Club offers just about everything. I would welcome your views on your experience with either organisation. Further observations on the prices they charge and/or cover would be nice. Thanks. Sorry if this has been flogged to death elsewhere.
  9. Found it straight away. Can't say I was impressed. Might watch again if I remember.
  10. Many thanks. I have a Smart TV so off to look for Channel 254.
  11. Where is the Caravan Channel please. I only have Freeview,
  12. Viking Fiberline best caravan we ever had. We bought new in 1978 (£3154) and had it till we wrote it off in an accident in 1990. Loved that caravan.
  13. I use indoor storage in north northumberland. Its gold standard CASSOA and costs £560 per annum. Pay half each six months. Outstanding service.
  14. United British Caravans, Sandy Lane, Gosforth not far away from Old Hartley http://www. unitedbritishcaravans. co. uk/caravanawnings2014. html
  15. I bought from SGS engineering and my caravan fitter could not fit them. Sent them back for a refund. If you get originals they are really easy to fit.
