  1. Hi, Bertha it is a fairly easy job to do if you have a few diy skills, you will need to replace all the affected wood around the windows inside If that’s the only parts that are affected, and also replace the mastic inside the rubber window seals or if the seal itself is perished, replace that with new. check out wizards caravan repair site https://www.google.co.uk/search?client=safari&channel=ipad_bm&source=hp&ei=bUs8XceGOJyAjLsPq8KikAQ&q=wizard+caravan+damp+repairs&oq=&gs_l=mobile-gws-wiz-hp.1.1.41j41i22i30j41l6.0.0..2617...0.0..0.0.0.......0...........8.P9MFIXkYGPk

  3. Hi all, I was speaking to a nice guy called Andy today, at my local storage place. He has recently set himself up in business as a mobile caravan cleaner. He was cleaning the grubbiest caravan on site, and doing a damn good job of making it clean again. He covers Newcastle upon Tyne and all surrounding areas, and has competitive rates. Andy will clean your caravan/motor home at home or at storage on a day to suit you, so come on guys let’s support a local business and give him a shout. I will upload some pictures as soon as I can, and show you the good work he is doing. In the meantime you can ring him on 07928 196 659 and bag yourself a clean caravan. email - info@metcalfecaravancleaning.co.uk internet - www.metcalfecaravancleaning.co.uk facebook - facebook.com/metcalfecaravancleaning/
  4. Ok so i have committed the highest of cardinal sins. A couple of weeks ago, we set off for derbyshire, the trip went well, arrived at the site and unhitched the caravan, and i couldnt find the remote for the mover. I had a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach, i realised i had left it on the back of the car when i hitched up at home. When we got back, i printed a poster with my details on so if anyone found it, they could contact me. I then thought, if someone finds it they would probably take it to the police station. So off i went to the local police and i was non too chuffed to find out, they dont do lost & found on most things, only traceable stuff and drugs etc. I couldnt even put a poster on their notice board in reception. Ive advertised at the local shop to no avail, what are you supposed to do when you lose things these days ??
  5. "It's known as holographing I think, where the lacquer has been "burnt" by the buffing wheel." What lacquer would that be ???? I didn't realise there was a lacquer on a caravan
  6. How about this one http://www. thurstonmanor. co. uk/ been a few times
  7. Hi Blondchaser You could try Thurston Manor, not far from Dunbar http://www. thurstonmanor. co. uk/
  8. I think this stuff is on rolls, and you must just be able to spray the adhesive on a board not actually placing fibres on to a board.
  9. Hi Befuddled I have just recently repaired some damage to my caravan, I contacted a firm called brown brothers, who deal in all things bodywork etc. Anyway, they have a camera that is placed on the caravan/car and it analyses the paint, then gives you a match. I paid £12 for a 400ml spray which was a perfect match for mine, you could try them if you have a branch near you http://www. brownbrothers. com/contact-us/our-locations
  10. Oh Dear, If only you had bought a Bailey Pageant Provence, series 6, that has the L shaped lounge, and we love it, ours is a 2008 as well. Good luck for the future
  11. Hi Rosie It would be helpful if you could supply pictures of the extra part, then we may be able to determine what it is.
  12. I had the misfortune recently to have my caravan damaged by some unknown *******. It was a great long dent in the panel underneath the front window. Anyway, I have filled it myself and found a paint supplier near to me, and I believe they have branches all over UK. The guy came out to me with a special camera they have to match the paintwork, and to cut a long story short, they have come up trumps. So if this is useful to anyone who owns a Bailey Pageant Provence (2008) or similar with cream paintwork, this is the code for the paint BDPBMPA description - MAC1-3V7G-Bailey Caravan. The paint was supplied by Brown Brothers Distribution and they supplied me with a 400ml spray can. and what a superb match it is. Trevor
  13. Hi M2TTJ & You will find loads of info. on here, try the top tips( I recommend the posting by BOAC at the top of the page in top tips. Trevor
  14. Both good suggestions, but unfortunately the dent is too long for that.
  15. Nooooooooooo I couldnt leave it, it looks so unsightly, if I cant get the corrugations correct, i might cover the whole lot with some plastic strips.
