  1. A 2hr drive to get to ours. I fear a flat battery at very least by the time we get back to it.
  2. Could a tourer on a seasonal pitch be a cheaper option? If it doesn't suit it would be much easier to sell or move to a different place.
  3. Our 2014 541 has a shower, it's a bit cramped as it's just part of a very small washroom. we use onsite showers so don't mind. Other than that it's an excellent Nova which we are missing g like mad as its stored in North Wales. Good luck with any future purchase.
  4. Happy to say that hubby and me are doing everything in our power to help the awful situation. Hubby is a hgv driver and so working to get deliveries done. Diverting my mind to try and keep sane is not however kidding myself how bad things are. We all have to find ways to cope with life mentally and so I apologise if I have heaped any of my petty worries onto anyone else. I'm not usually one for commenting on posts and will most definitely not be doing so again.
  5. I agree completely but by focusing on the van situation it keeps me and possibly others from over worrying about the bigger picture.
  6. Exactly, it's so sad for the owners as they bring so much to the area financially but now they are being treated like the enemy.
  7. Our Van's are back in storage mainly due to the fact that the owners live there and are worried that if the locals see the Van's they might believe the site to be open. They have received unpleasant emails and are concerned for their safety as well as the Van's with them. Such a worrying time all round but hopefully one day we can all look back on this as though it was a bad dream.
  8. Not expecting a refund and would be happy to be grateful for any good will gesture towards next years fees, just thought I would clear that one up. Cant read our contract anyway as its in the van in Wales so a 2hr drive away. The seasonal vans are back in storage for safety reasons as it seems there has been quite a lot of bad feeling aimed at park owners.
  9. Do you think the same applies if you had a caravan on a seasonal pitch and it had to be put back in the park owners storage due to close down?
  10. I would be interested in seeing a section for these caravans as they look to be a good choice for relatively problem free touring. Please could any owners tell me how comfortable the seats are? Thanks in advance.
  11. Sorry I'm not able to see the listing but as i really am no expert I wouldn't like to advise you either way. It would be well worth the money for you to get a mobile caravan engineer to do a full damp report on any van before you parted with your money. Sorry I cant be more helpful but good luck with your search and if it's a Nova around 2008 then if you can get down and check the floor its advisable.
  12. Speaking from experience I would advise that you check the floor from outside along the back of the van, especially in the corners. We had a beautiful 570 2008, our son and his family took it over from us. Last month he decided to sell it . We were all absolutely devastated when a buyer came and checked it over to find the floor in the bottom offside corner was completely rotten and wet thru. The buyer knew of this problem as he had owned a 570 which also had this problem. This damp was not obvious from inside as a wardrobe and sink and toilet was covering this area. He bought the Nova as he loved it but at a reduced price allowing for the repair. This 570 had been serviced 18 months previous and had a good report but the rotten floor was so bad it must have been rotting away for years. We now have a Noa luxusline 541 2014 and one thing for sure checking it all over for damp is top priority for us. We used to be of the opinion that if it was a Hymer van then it was highly unlikely that it would be damp.
  13. A big thank you to Deno for suggesting we try A and N caravan repairs. Allan has now fitted a new control panel and everthing is working fine now. He did advise us that we need to change our battery every 3 years as old batteries not fully charged usually causes the control panel to blow.
