  1. I was supposed to be stewarding a THS at Bridlington with Derbyshire DA. Lovely beach adjacent.
  2. What a good idea. It seems obvious when being demonstrated, but you often have that " did he do this or that?" moment later.
  3. I remember when we only had a twelve month warranty and no extra damp cover. People didn't get into a frenzy like they do now over warranties.
  4. I wonder how many people will not be able to afford to proceed with their new van at the end of this lockdown?
  5. Seeing as how I can't go for a run out, I'm going to engage the motor mover and take my caravan for a spin around my drive. A couple of turns and some forward and reverse should sort out any flatting possibilities.
  6. I bought a 2019 Ariva in the period between owners. So far, I am impressed with it, far better than a Elddis that I had recently. That one had a cracked rear panel which was not covered by warranty as over 12 months old.
  7. Hopefully, all will be ok with the new vans. I bought a 2019 Ariva when the company was liquidated. So far, I am impressed with it.
  8. Well, I'm glad that I wasn't out in my van last night. Red flood warnings all over the place here in Derbyshire. I was woken at two, this morning, by the wind and rain lashing against my bedroom window.
  9. Camping club meets have been cancelled round here for this weekend. Shame really as there were Valentine's parties on. Safety first as it makes sense after last week's examples.
  10. I wouldn't worry. I'm not and I'm in the same position as you as I bought a 2019 Ariva when Lunar went into administration. Three year MRB warranty so what's the problem?
  11. Having owned loads of caravans over the last 50 years, the answer is easy, Coachman all the way. Although I have, in the past, owned a VIP I think the dealer special is the way to go or a Pastiche.
  12. The simple rule, is not to run more than two items, that use a heating element, at once. Saves doing your head in with calculations.
  13. Time to review my van. I've noticed some of the tins are getting rusty on top!
  14. Stop drill the crack, dissolve a small piece of plastic (Lego blocks are good) in acetone (nail varnish remover) to a thick slurry and dribble it in the crack. Pour yourself a double G&T and for get about it.
  15. To stop the fridge shelf jumping out, put a small piece of bluetack on one edge of the shelf before you insert it. Works for me.
