  1. Further to this discussion I have been looking at the interlocking tiles (if that's what they are called). I would require 40 of these for our awning and would appreciate peoples opinions on this compared to a ground sheet. They feel a lot lighter than a normal ground sheet but are quite bulky.
  2. Thanks for your replies. I will look into the options before we go away.
  3. Hi everyone. We have just bought a brand new Isabella full awning plus a Isabella carpet. Looking on their web site they are showing a ground cover and a ground sheet. Can someone please tell us which we should get. If you have all three including the carpet your van would be overweight i am sure.
  4. Thank you everyone for your good advice. We are looking forward to visiting this site. Len
  5. Thank you Jim. I will go on google earth and look at so I have good where I am going. I did forget to mention that I am coming North from Garlieston.Len
  6. We are hoping to use this site in June, but the directions are sparse. The CCC directions seem to end on the B852. I used google earth and the only roads I could find to the site are quite narrow. Can someone please tell me which is the best approach to this site. Thanks
  7. I always plan my routes where ever possible before I travel. I use TomTom My Drive on my computer. This has the options for car, motorhome and truck. I always use the truck option although there is option to put in size and weight of your unit. I then download the routes to my TomTom appliance. Up to press never had a problem. I do check with a map just to make sure. My TomTom is not a truck or camping one. Regards. Len
  8. Thank you everyone. Lots of nice things to investigate before we decide. Its good that we will not need to book in advance. Its good to get advice from people who have been visiting France for a long time. As we will still be in the EU until the end of the year is seems an ideal time to go. Len
  9. Hi everyone. My Wife and I are thinking of venturing to France for 2 weeks in June. Estimated dates 15th to the 29th. As its our first time touring abroad we do not want to travel too far from Calaise. The furthest south would probably be Tours. We would like to stay at 2 sites spending 7 nights at each one. We like walking and cycling and would want to be reasonably close to a town. Can someone please give us some on advice on known good sites for us. All advice would be appreciated .
  10. OK got that. Then charge per person instead of per unit.
  11. My Wife and I have been members of both clubs for many years. I can honestly say we have never met any bad, grumpy or over zealous wardens yet. May be we are lucky. The thing that baffles me about both clubs is why is there pricing in two parts. ie pitch fee and a charge for each person. I cannot see the relevance of the number of people. Surely it would be much easier to just charge for a unit. If anyone can explain this, then I am all ears.
  12. Its not an affiliated site and it is listed as open all year. December 2020 is fully booked according to the web site and as been since October from what I see.
  13. Thanks for your reply. I assumed it would be something like that, but its almost fully booked upto December 2020
  14. Hi all. Can anyone please tell me what is the earliest date I could book a CMC site. I have just checked for 2020 at Baltic wharf and it is nearly fully booked up to December. That means bookings must have started 14 months in advance. If that is correct its ridiculous. Thanks
  15. Thanks guys for you help. Have not got a Avtex yet but going to see them this weekend. Len
  16. HI every one. Can someone help a thick old man with regard to the topic. Does a Avtex tv need a separate box (Sky or Freesat) together satellite tv, or do I need just a dish. Thanks. Len
  17. Just had our van done this week at Regal. Brilliant, best way to describe. All new fabric through out, seat cushions, backs, new arm rests, curtains, 4 new cushions and bed headboards. ( all seats and backrest had new foam). Price £1500
  18. Hi everyone. I live in Cleveleys which is next town to Blackpool. DO NOT use Blackpool prom. during the lights. Get the tram its a lot better. Len
  19. Hi alistairr, We have the Buccaneer Fluyt, and use Sky. You can get a sky HD box which is smaller and lighter than the normal ones. Its like that because it does not have a hard disc and cannot record but it works very well. Ours in a top cupboard. Len
  20. We have a Volvo XC70 estate and carry both our bikes stood up in the back. One bike just take front wheel off and its stands up. The other is a mountain bike so I got a strap with a ratchet fitting and compress the front suspension enough for to stand up also.
  21. Thanks everyone for your replies. I did not book the site, I said I was looking to book. I agree the membership price is very reasonable. What I was trying to say was even after the membership fee the price was very expensive. As has been said in the past the sites fees seem to increase year on year. When will it end if it does at all. I have my doubts.
  22. Hi everyone. I am sure this topic has been covered many times. I have just looked to book Chester Fairoaks for 5 nights in July and the fee per night for two persons is over £31. This to me is extortionate. Considering that the membership fee is I think £49, is there any advantage to using this club? No wonder caravan sales are falling.
  23. Please explain where I have been racist. I was asked for my reasons. Apart from that who is the racist? Them for way we were treated or me for answering a question
  24. Sorry about the mistake the old eyes are wearing down a bit. In answer to your reply. You can request a pitch when you book that goes with your booking on the computer. You are not guaranteed the pitch for differing reasons. This I accept. The problem was the main site office were giving people their pitch and the warden was changing that at her own discretion and for the reason I have stated. It was so plain, the only people who did not get there requested pitch after the main office had designated it with the non Welsh.
