  1. I wouldve taken this option if it had been an option but they are lease cars and the old car failed its MOT and we had no option but to take the new one. We thought we had found a company to fit the towbar - the towbar sadly didnt arrive from Holland and so there's no chance of it being fitted this week. Using the links you all kindly posted i've established that i can get the towbar but the electrics are not available until August. We've borrowed a 4x4 to tow the carvan up north (6hrs away) my husband will tow it up Thursday evening, then drive home, return the 4x4 and we'll drive up on the Friday morning. Its the only option bar cancelling the holiday. I've not figured how we are going to get the van home yet! We're in East Scotland.
  2. Long story short - my husbands company car has been updated and we go on holiday (towing) a week on Friday. My husbands new car is an Audi Avant Ultra 16 plate 2. 0l diesel. It seems like there is a major problem getting a tow bar for this car - with the exception of Audi themselves who want £1200 + to buy it and more ££ to fit it! HELP! The holiday is all booked/paid for and right now we have no clue what to do.
  3. Why? This is our third Adria and we've been really happy. Good to hear
  4. How easy is it to switch?
  5. We use our caravan all year round - we had several feet of snow however last Christmas and couldnt get out of the drive let alone away anywhere. We use blue gas - we have used this during the winter without problems, but with the dire predictions of another winter like the last one, should we move over to red gas - if so, can you just use red gas all year round? Thanks in advance.
  6. We have, today, bought our third Adria (542DK) - we LOVE them - there's been a few niggly problems with them, but nothing major. We have used them in very low temperatures and never ever, felt the cold. Would thoroughly recommend Adria. We have a very good dealer very near us - who have only ever been majorly helpful.
  7. We went to collect our 2006 Altea 542UK from its annual service and thought we'd have a look at the special deals they had on the 2011 Alteas - we ended up trading in our old van and buying a brand new 542DK. The only problems we ever had with the 542UK was the not comfortable front bed, a constantly dripping tap in the bathroom and the roof light screens that kept breaking. .other than these small niggly things, it was a great van. Any thoughts/opinions on this new van? Thanks.
  8. Trust me, my dogs are much better behaved than a lot of children! I hate inconsiderate dog owners too - but equally i dislike people that dont bring up their children to show respect/courtesy.
  9. Is anyone asking you to justify how you bring them up. ..must have missed that post. .why would anyone care if you have the attitude that you dont bother anyone? Bit confused on that one. :huh: Re dogs. ..totally agree with you. .i love dogs but i wouldnt be happy if any (or mine!) toileted on my pitch or anyone elses. I see you have an Adria (sorry OT) - do you like it? We LOVE ours. .we used to have the same one as you. .we now have almost the same but the bunks run along the side window.
  10. CLs get a big thumbs up from me. .they are fab little place. .generally few kids around! I'm not sure if everyone who says they dislike 'whiners' mean anyone that complains about anything or anyone who complains full stop. .if being a whiner means accepting poor manners and no respect. .then hands up - i'm one!
  11. I dont have long haired dogs. You didnt mention anything about long haired dogs or them being wet. ..you asked doesnt it 'pong' with all these dogs?
  12. Yes, of course children are the future, hence the reason we should be showing them the way? Where did i say children should be controlled? Guidance was the word i used. .teach a child to respect and be polite. .surely its not rocket science? David50 - amen to that!! One warden told us that if peoples kids behaved as well as our dogs his job would be a breeze. .i was soo proud to be their owner when i heard that.
  13. Thank God, that someone else thinks the same. .its not just us. My children are now 12y and 17y - but they were taught basic manners. .you dont touch dogs you dont know. .you dont go into other peoples carvans/awnings, you dont take things that arent yours. .you dont drop litter etc. . Children are children but they need guidance. .if some of the attitudes on here are anything to go by, i'm not surprised by the behaviour we see on some sites.
  14. I have no problem with children wanting to speak to the dogs. .children that ask first. .of course they are inquisitive. .but you want someone wandering into your house without knocking/asking? IF something happened to that child my dogs would be the ones getting the blame. .not a chance i am prepared to take. If the rules on site are dogs on a lead then surely we all do the same? I personally dont mind the type of dogs that walk by their owners heel but some of the ones we have been on site with are all over the place. .brand new awning. .stained with dog pee. ..also if our dogs are tethered at the van, its not fair to them to have dogs charging up. I'm not perfect, far from it. .but i respect the rules and other peoples space and privacy and all i would ask is the same courtesy in return. I can only imagine from some of the replies that some of you must be the most tolerant people in the world. I dont expect anything other than basic courtesy. .that's it -no more - no less. .but the one stance i take is not putting my dogs at any risk from some over zealous mother whose child gets scratched by a dog saying hello. Its kind of sad that this thread wasnt taken in the way it was meant. .a thread for a bit of a 'i hate when people do. .' - i havent been called a baby in sometime - so thanks for that. .and lighten up. .if that means taking risks or not expecting courtesy. .i'll stay how i am.
  15. No i can assure you it doesnt. .if you are ever on site you are more than welcome to check it out. I kind of take exception to the insinuation that we must be dirty because we have lots of dogs. Our previous van was bought back by the dealer (who knows the number of dogs we have) and we were told it was immaculate. .much more so than most other vans that get brought in. Having dogs doesnt = being a minger, contrary to what you might imagine.
