      Forum upgrade   12/10/17

      Hi everyone, As you're probably aware, we've been in the process of upgrading the Caravan Talk forum software for a while. I can now confirm that the software has been upgraded and we're fully up to date. Please note that this new software is quite different in appearance and function, so may require a bit of relearning. We are in the process of refining the look, features and experience to make it a bit better and more familiar. If you spot any issues please let us know in the feedback forum. Unfortunately any posts between Monday morning and now have been lost. This is due to when the database snapshot was taken for the upgrade, this may also affect new members since then. We do apologise for this, but we have tried to keep disruption to a minimum. We are already aware and working on the following issues: PayPal payment issues for CT Supporters Forum design, lack of CT branding including colours Temporary loss of reviews databases Navigation bar needs refining We will keep this list up to date, so please check here before posting new updates, or to keep on tabs of our progress. The software was upgraded in order to provide you with a more secure, reliable, faster experience, whilst providing us with more tools to improve the features and options for the forum. Thank you for your continued support. Ben and the CT Team

  1. Channel Tunnel Video

    That pet passport video is out of date as the pet passport control is on the right of the road. I think the new one opened two years ago as we have used it twice now. No specific parking for caravans so I end up using three car spaces and a road. Ian

    My centre front window was bowed at the top and let water in, the replacement had a flaw in it which was annoying in sunshine, the third went concave and the fourth is now OK Ian
  3. I have always used a credit card previously but this year in Italy my darling OH managed to put the card through a gap in the front panel rather than in the credit card slot. She was awaiting cataract operations so maybe not all her fault. Had to get two attendants to get the card back, we were not popular with the cars behind. Ian
  4. I just received my French one this week so ordered the other one yesterday. Ian
  5. E And P self level.

    Never use my remote because it’s stored inside the van and it is easier to just stand in the doorway. Ian
  6. Tours abroad

    One of the reasons that the CMC tours are expensive is that you have to cover all the costs of the two group leaders as they get a free trip. If you look at it he rallies listed in the same brochure then you will get a more realistic price. Ian
  7. 2016 Buccaneer Caravans

    We took our Cruiser to Lake Garda this year with no problems, the exit from the site was very tight but they opened the entry barrier and let me out that way. Ian
  8. 2017 Pastiche 565 Warranty Work

    Just in case you have not read the Ozio thread I am on my sixth set of cushions from LF in two and a half years. Ian
  9. 2017 Commodore

    They are firmer but only had one weekend away so far, I think the problem is made worse by the way they slip forward so will have to look at stopping that. Ian
  10. Discovery Sport

    I know a few people who tow with the disco sport and they are very pleased with it. Ian
  11. Ozio . ..opinions

    Now on set number 6, they collected them last Tuesday and delivered them back on Friday. They feel firmer but not out until next weekend. Ian
  12. Apparently you need a new roof trim, there are comments about it in one of the Buccaneer threads. Ian
  13. Towing Wind Speed ?

    The new Queensferry Crossing, Kevin is the local name for it, still has a new website with wind speeds and warnings about closures. The wind speed is 20mph higher than the old bridge for each closure. Towed across it yesterday and the wind deflectors appear to work well. Ian
  14. Towing Wind Speed ?

    Never had a problem apart from FRB being closed to high sided vehicles and have towed in very bad winds. Ian
  15. CC site at Strathclyde has a huge storage area but it looked pretty full when we were there recently. Ian
