  1. i won't buy a car without a full sized spare, my last buy, skoda superb, has a kit so dealer paid for a 2nd hand spare. a firm in blackpool had the correct rim, and fitted a used tyre, only a year old, and 7mm tread, for £50, i 'm lucky to have a full sized well,. if towing it could be carried in the van, in the car would be better. cheers rodders
  2. thanks for link, competent diy-er can do this. cost my brother £200 plus cheers rodders
  3. looks like you have found it. when it is completely dry, if still a bit soft, would suggest a coat of wood hardener is applied to make it firm and waterproof. some one will say if that is not suitable cheers rodders
  4. still ok so it works, just a bit messy. cheers rodders
  5. just done this, van is 22 years old, so carpet came out bought the kit on eb, for £18, then drilled and glued it, put a new floor covering, stick on vinyl planks, in same beech pattern, and hey ho, no bounce. note old van, dry as a bone cheers rodders
  6. had this prob with a bailey. check the bolt in the centre on the axle tube. screws through floor. cheers rodders
  7. same prob with my bailey, monarch took carrier off and put back when sold. there was a tyre well in the front locker, just fitted a holding strap. also realised when abroad, the rack would pull into the road, not reccomended cheers rodders
  8. got an oops. most of the area solid, except one part. think i boobed, i put a weight on that part to keep it flat, i think it pushed to much glue back out. redone that bit, and was surprised how much glue it took. waiting now for 24 and see then, still got plenty of vinyl. the saga continues. cheers rodders
  9. yes finished the floor, and laid vinyl stick on planks. managed to get beech colour, as bailey use, see pics, ignore bits , too hot yesterday cheers rodders
  10. we had a similar problem, it turned out to the bolt to the centre bracket,on the cross tube. tightened that, squeaks gone. cheers rodders
  11. done it, will need to scrape/sand the floor after checking 24 hours, any tips. not hard to do, just tedious anyone needs a small amount of the green stuff, contact me, as have only used a 1/4 of the bottle, the saga will continue cheers rodders
  12. just doing the same to my van, all drilled ready to go. did anyone consider varnishing/sealing the floor before putting down the vinyl ? using green poly bond, so should be fine when finished.
  13. we had metered hook up, in germany, we did not have to pay any extra, as we only used the fridge,but one guy had air con on, as it was so hot. went ballistic when told his bill. cheers rodders
  14. always used blue connector in those countries. you can get a multi adaptor, we have one that came with a travel iron, not sure how much power it would take, cheers rodders
