  1. Hi all , owe microwave has packed up , all seems to be working etc but won't heat anything up , I've been looking to replace but can't find a replacement , the model is cata bmsw20 , any ideas , thanks in advance Pete
  2. Tunningdrew, thinking of your lovely wife , wish I could help, puts things into prospective , pete
  3. Normally go to France every year for the summer but haven't booked anything yet sites or crossings , I know CMC are selling red pennant insurance to include covid but just not sure whether to go , not got any health issues , what are the good folk on here doing , going or staying in the U.K. , thanks in advance Pete
  4. Thanks for the replies , made my long trip and all was fine , my wife has managed to book our car in for a service with ford next week so all god so far , thanks Pete
  5. Hi , my 2017 ford kuga was due to come out of its ford 3 year warrenty early April and was booked in late March for a service and £300 auto gearbox oil change , I've been trying to book it in for said works but ford are fully booked , my neighbour is a VAT registered car mechanic with his own one man garage will the car still be covered under fords warrenty , I also took out a further years warrenty with motor point who I bought the car from , do you think I will be still covered , I've got to make a 4 hour journey in two days time and I'm a little worried about the auto gearbox dew to it not being serviced , the car has only done 24,000 miles and we will be driving without the caravan , what are your thought , thanks in advance Pete
  6. Probably cheaper than taking your family on a package holiday , we bought owe first caravan over 30 years ago owe 3 children have visited , USA , Thailand , Mexico , Australia , New Zealand , Egypt , Africa , Finland , Iceland , etc, etc , and all 3 say caravan holidays with the family are the best holidays and they still want to come with us , just keep things simple , Pete
  7. Insurance companies , average crim , from my experience not much difference unfortunately , ....stay safe , stay home.... pete
  8. Driving to a secure caravan compound and breaking into caravans isn't essential travel ... stay safe , stay at home....pete
  9. Hi we keep owe caravan at a caravanclub site secure compound so can't be moved or used until end June , so that's 3 months of no towing , no possibility of it getting damaged on site or on route , no chance of it being stolen because police would hopefully stop then while travelling , etc , but it could catch on fire , infested with rodents and owe tyres would need replacing as they would have been sitting on the same stop for approximately 14 weeks as we used the caravan 2 weeks before lockdown , do you think the many insurance companies will make our insurance 25% cheaper next renewal ....... no ....... stay safe , stay at home , Pete
  10. We booked with tui , trying to get a refund no joy so far , we use the caravan during the summer and we have 10 days booked in Cyprus mid October but can't go on that one as owe sons girlfriend is dew to give birth and we don't want to miss that , do we aye , Pete
  11. Cape Verde , we was hoping to have 3 weeks in France starting late July luckily haven't booked anything but have booked 2 weeks on a caravanclub site in sommerset , if anything changes we will cancel Somerset and book france , stay safe , stay at home , Pete
  12. Just noticed Forest View campsite in Normandy is offering free temporary refuge , google it
  13. Phoned caravanclub today wouldn't move on price , no phone number for eversure emailed them this morning had no replie as yet , managed to match Both insurance like for like which I hadn't done properly when I got my original price , caravnclub £290 , eversure now £210 , I will renew with the caravanclub not too happy going with a company that doesn't have a phone number or return calls , bit shocked that they was even allowed to advertise on caravantalk , thanks Pete
  14. Hi folks got my caravan insurance renewal fro caravanclub £290 had a quote from eversure who I found from caravantalk forum £240 , seems to be like for like unless i have missed anything ,anyone had dealings with them , what do you think , thanks Pete
  15. Hi folks , really like the look of this campsite and was wanting to stay for 7 days sometime this year , anyone been & what did you think also on google earth looks a bit remote which we don't mind but was worried about the approach road looks a bit narrow, thanks in advance ,Pete
