    Leaking skylight.

    Leaking skylight.

    Depending on which type skylight you have i have re sealed several over the years normally the inner part is held in place by a ball and socket arrangement which just allows the two parts to separate, they do take a bit of pressure to part them but once started it does part complete,when the inside part is removed there are screwed brackets holding the top part in place remove these then clean thourally the roof and top part i use silkafix to re seal
  3. Depending where you live the best dealers for hobby are MB Caravans at Dunstable the owner is Martin Berry he has large stocks of all models at the best prices available in the Uk

    The agent Jeff Bowens is good when you want to buy but that's where it seems to end

    Overnight stop Calais to Spain

    Can you tell me if staying overnight at Futuriste camping can you just arrive at the site or do you need to make an advanced booking. Looking at review's it gets very mixed reviews mainly not very friendly reception staff, but for one night safe on a campsite will not put me off.

    Camptech awnings

    Well I have taken the plunge and bought a Camptech Atlantis from Jeff Bowen awnings got a very good discounted price, it seem these awnings are manufacturered for an ex director of Dorema who has many years of experience in the business. Time will only tell but a new awning for not a lot more than some people ask for good secondhand.
