  1. We have managed a total of 93, mainly by being in Spain for February and half of March before we ran for home.
  2. Our Cabrera 4 sliding door had the same problem and our dealer fixed it. It's quite a heavy door so I also bought another retaining strap which I have fitted near the bottom of the door to help with our ever-increasing bumpy roads.
  3. I managed to get one from a dealer near Tain, GNR Sutherland and also ordered one direct from Alko which arrived by courier the evening before we were due to depart Loch Ness Shores for Bioran Dubh CL near Appin (which is heaven!). Replacement was easy, but the moment of truth was unhitching and all went well, no problems. Unusual for me as diy and me almost never work out well...
  4. thanks all for replies. The video shows exactly the part which is broken, that's the Alko Hitch Lining repair. I will try Highland Motorhome and Caravan Services, but if not available, I will try to get the part and do it myself, although I am not good at any DIY - something always goes wrong! Can I still tow before it is repaired?
  5. Arrived at Loch Ness Shores C&C Site today and couldn't unhitch the caravan, it was stuck on the towbar. After much swearing and repositioning, it eventually came free but at a cost - a piece of plastic, curved, about 1.5 inches long and 3/4 inches wide fell out. Does anyone know whether I can still tow when we leave on Wednesday if I can't find a mobile repairer. Does anyone know the number of a mobile caravan servicer? The handout gave a contact, Highland Campervans, but I rang them and they don't travel or really fix caravans.
  6. We have the 5 metre one. For extra stability, we bought 2 more guy ropes which we attach to the end poles to tension it more. We also wrote to Isabella saying that the door touched the awning even when on the highest setting and they sent us extension poles. We often left ours up if rain was expected and just lowered the centre pole to enable the rain to run off. Great piece of kit!
  7. Mow Cop is 3 miles from Kidsgrove, Biddulph, Congleton and 10 miles from Stoke on Trent. Mow Cop has a folly castle where you can see wonderful views into Wales, Lancashire, Derbyshire, Staffordshire, Greater Manchester on a clear day.
  8. Tidying up the garage and here's a bag with Isabella poles. They are not what it says on the bag as the Future annex has only one pole. I was going to take them to the tip, but then thought they may be of use to someone here. Collection only, free. Mow Cop is about 10 miles north east of Stoke on Trent.
  9. I've just spoken with people at the CMC shop. Vouchers bought before the change to T&C relating to expiry date are open-ended. However, even where they were bought prior to the "no change given", they say that they are unable to honour that, so that was sufficient for me to get a full refund. Mine were ordered on 15 April.
  10. Just bought my £600 for £500, now must make sure we survive
  11. Thanks for the reply. Someone mentioned the receiver as a way to receive BBC, ITV in Spain, even in the south. Would I need to patch to receive these? If so, I think I am losing interest....
  12. Has anyone any experience of Icecrypt receiver use in Spain? Is it relatively easy to use 'off the shelf' or does it need tweaking?
  13. Hi, I don't know, but I would expect Specialised Covers to know, why not try them. Good luck
  14. This seems to be selling quickly on both eBay and Amazon: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07VWRNMBF?pf_rd_p=3730611c-1654-405c-a45c-eec586a43cc7&pf_rd_r=BBDPKDBXW32JFF82GKV3 Anyone any experience with this model?
  15. Too Late! Bought used Magnum 340 last night on eBay which we pick up in a couple of weeks time, but thanks for all replies.
