  1. Be care full, check the front above the windows for signs of cracks , see attached , I had to have a new front fitted on my Pastiche 560, done under warranty in 2014/5 now in 2018 cracked again.
  2. I have the same model & same problem, I found there was a fuse behind the waste container also a small circuit board behind, I found that the circuit board had failed , once I changed it all worked fine, cost was about £12.00
  3. Hi Kelper, welcome to caravaning enjoy the experience.
  4. while away a couple of weeks ago, some thing hit the middle front window & put a crack in it, I sent photo & claim form in on Monday this week & this morning got a letter to say its been excepted & now being ordered by Glossop caravan service center, thanks go to CMC insurance & Devits for prompt service, just have to wait for the replacement to arrive
  5. Try Kenmore Caravans they keep lots of different spares, worth a try. I have got a crack in my 2010 Coachman just in the process of getting a new one, I got one quote of £975.00 supply only? you will need to take the dimensions between the rubber seals from inside & the size of the overall size of the window & in the corner of the window there are details of the manufacturer & some numbers take all details of this as well take a couple of photos as well
  6. We have booked into Causeway Croft in Kettlewell , looks like a nice small site with hook ups & I have towed my van to here & over the top road in to Hawes before, with out problems , my van is 2.25mt wide 7.45mt long.
  7. We went to our 2010 Coachman Pastiche 560 a couple of weeks ago to give it a clean, I noticed two small cracks in the front above the windows, three year ago we had the same problem & coachman arrange a complete new front to be fitted, I have checked for screws there are none where the cracks are, think they are stress cracks, taped them over for now, I am looking into have a firm in to do a small cover wrap over the area above the windows?
  8. great awning, we have the Kampa 400 Ace Air, I do not find that heave to lift or put up? I use rear poles & Limpets, I made some middle supports for the front , use them when its very windy to help support the air poles from moving.
  9. Planet HG, this air awning is for sale on Caravan and Motorhome Club site for £300. 00 with pump, roof liner, rear poles etc, its a Kampa 260 air
  10. We position ours just past the edge of the front side window between the door & it goes past the other side window, it take us about 15 mins to put it up + pegging down, height of my awning rail is aprox 2. 4 mt, my other awning cuts across the the back side window but I can not use the side locker or open the window but this has never been a problem, a mate picked a 2 yr old awning up for his van (Kampa 390) on the Caravan and Motorhome Club site for £75. 00, best of luck getting one sorted.
  11. We have a porch awning, the one we use is a Kampa Air awning 4 Mt wide x 3 mt deep, its a great awning but to cheap, we also have a light weight Kampa 260 poled awning easy to put up for a quick weekend or longer. If you measure from the gap between the front window & door the across the caravan wall past the side window, ( say its 3 mt you need one at least 3 mt wide) or longer as long as it does not go past the straight part of the awning rail? the photo is of our air awning.
  12. We are both 70, we started with caravans in 1974 & still enjoy our caravan holidays, but thinking about going to a Motor Home for 2019, hope to still carry on a lot longer yet.
  13. We went yesterday to look @ Motor homes, seen a couple we liked, may be next year to make the change after 35 yrs of caravaning .
  14. Hi Tony, we have a Coachman Pastiche 560, we found that Glossop Caravans gave the best deal, such as upgraded upholstery & curtains, free wheel lock, ATC, & a awning of our choose plus wine glasses & other small items. All the best when you purchase
  15. It was given by Grantham Caravans shop, the cost was including postage.
