  1. Just a slight move 'off topic' but how come the French have access to out DVLA , yet we do not seem to have the same access according to a resent topic from Kent Police who apparently are letting foreign drivers off speeding tickets.
  2. I'm sure you will receive plenty of advice. when you leave home or site, just stop down the road after about a mile and double check everything is ok, just in case you may have forgotten to lock something. It's worked for us on more than one occasion especially when we first started caravanning, such as front locker or skylight. also make sure the top lockers are firmly closed so items don't fall out, very easy to miss. I tend to check and deal with outside and leave wife to check and deal with inside.
  3. Sorry, bit slow replying, but thanks to all who replied.
  4. Wispman, what precations do you take to ensure that your not ripped off, money wise. How do you make sure that your not taken for a ride ( no pun intended) . when I come to sell mine I just want to ensure that the buyer doesn't use some trick, or fraud and i'm left out of pocket.
  5. Looking at the picture, just wondering if it would all fit on your own pitch or this additional windbreak will end up butting onto the neighbours pitch, sometimes there is barely enough room for the caravan, awning and car on some sites.
  6. Perhaps the next step up will be fingerprint or eye scanning!!
  7. cotswold carp farm, 10 minute walk into bourton -on-the-water
  8. I agree with the OP, very frustrating when cars 'barge' across in front of you without a thought as to if you are able to move across into the second lane, which sometimes you are unable to do.
  9. Seems to be a common problem, mine is the same every nown again will come away from screen, I have the wiring go across my inside mirror so that when it does fail it just hangs from my mirror and not drop down all the way. On a side issue, with this extremely hot weather i wonder how the insides of the camera copes?
  10. We have used the seresto collar for our lab for a couple of years now. They are far more effective than frontline or spot-on, yes they are expensive but in our opinion worth it. We had used frontline but he was still getting ticks, the first year we used seresto we could see the ticks on his coat, none got to the stage where they were bloated and we could pick them off. The collar is also waterproof which is a bonus for us. Last year the collar was not as effective as in previous years and our vet did make comment, hopefully the company would have had some feedback and check the strength, in fact we are about to get his collar as we have noticed at least 3 bloated ticks recently.
  11. I use the maps that came with my Iphone, I also have google maps but the Iphone maps has the advantage of showing speed limits and is supported by tomtom
  12. Yes, brittania will cover an issue with caravan, as long as the car and caravan are on the same journey, no issue, also have it in writing.
  13. No doubt you will receive numerous replies. I am with coast ( formally park homes) very good when we had a claim for our window.
  14. I have to say I was shocked reading about this and that a dealership could act this way, had the OP not taken a photo then there would be no proof, so a lesson to us all. In my humble view the dealership clearly knew what they were doing and it begs the question, "how oftern have they done the same to others " They said the OP would have to wait until January for a NEW caravan, yet as proven they had the demonstrator hanging around waiting unti Janaury ready to pass it off as new. It does the caravan industry no favours with this fraud and I know the OP is now happy but I would have contacted Trading standards as others have mentioned .
