  1. I second that! We have had it for a few years now. Wouldn't be without it.
  2. If you like scenic you won't beat Morella but I wouldn't be going near the place with a caravan. Get set up at Alcossebra and then visit Morella for the day. It is a wonderful place. As Jaydug says the A23 from Zaragosa to the coast via Teruel is a good road and toll free. That is the way I would be going.
  3. Truma's wonderful customerservice may have been mentioned before but I think we should offer praise when it is due. We had a major Ultrastore failure in our caravan last winter down in Spain. Caravan 12 years old and very well used, we live in it as we live at home. When I saw the state of the boiler removed by the technician, I agreed a new one was required. Cost to renew/replace in Spain was in excessof €1000 which I thought a tad excessive. A bit of research showed that the new Ultrastore Rapid GE was less than half that price in UK. Email to Truma brought me the answers I needed so it was purchased in UK for £400 or so, carried to Spain and fitted by our friendly Spanish technician. All worked fine - but then after a short while the gas switch stopped working. Technician checked everything and said the gas switch is faulty and as it is a sealed unit there was nothing he could do. Another email to Truma and within an hour I had the response, send us your details and we will send a replacement switch. No ifs, no buts, just wonderful service. Why can't all the suppliers be so good? I know some are but some fall a long way short of this level of Customer service. Well done Truma!
  4. Last winter we had a young Spanish family, Mum, Dad and three young children on the pitch next to us. They were very polite and the children were well behaved. In conversation they said they were only here for a few days because it was expensive (we are on long term pensionistas rate). We asked them if they knew about ACSI and they didn't so we explained it to them. As we just pitch up on one spot each year now we have no use for it so we gave them our book. A few minutes ago we had a caller. It was the same man who called to thank us. Not only did joining ACSI save them money but it allowed them to use their caravan more and from here they are off to Malaga for the New Year. Leaves a warm feeling, not from having helped someone we had never met before but the fact that he bothered to look us up just to say thank you.
  5. Seats are hard at all Son et Lumieres in France and we have seen a few. We take a bag of cushions now to ease the numbness.
  6. You really do have to book early for Cinescenie. If you have seen the show you will know why, it's fabulous and I'm not easily impressed. OH has just informed me that we booked on 11thOctober for June 2018.
  7. I doubt that you will regret it, we certainly haven't.
  8. We agree with you Vanmaster. The difference is we live here so don't have the withdrawal symptoms. La Marie Galante is our favourite seafood restaurant by the way, only 40 minutes away. We also love Spain and we over winter there each year just north of Castellon.
  9. Love the humour on here especially the supposed age of the Irish lady. For sure Scotland is a beatiful country but I am, however, surprised that no-one has mentioned France in the comparisons between countries. If you want diversity look no further plus it has good weather and the highest overseas visitor numbers every year. Wonderful place and before anyone else says it, the people are wonderful too. You just need to get to know them!
  10. Have a look at electric underfloor heating, easy to fit and effective, providing you have ehu of course.
  11. We had an Omnistor. Very good bit of kit, well made and robust. Had no problems with it at all but a change in our caravanning practice means we no longer have a need for it. Friends have given it a new home. We didn't have side panels so cannot comment on that aspect.
  12. If you still have the problem, talk to Truma. Their customer service is excellent in my experience.
  13. And at some it is totally impossible. Google Earth gives a clue.
  14. There are no hard and fast rules but this site gives a good comparison between sellers and the location of the likely cheaper places. Supermarkets are always the best value but they can vary too. Our local Intermarche is sometimes cheaper than Carrefour but usually they are the same price. I am not suggesting going out of your way just to buy fuel but if you don't know the area you are in, its good to know which supermarket has the best price and where it is.
  15. Both very valid points Ern and John.
