  1. Are the stories about gassings just a load of hot aire? I'll get my coat!
  2. Some flip helmets are legal in the up position.
  3. I had to call them out to Wales. A simple phone call was all it took - just like any other breakdown company. In English too. If a British company provided cover for two cars a motorbike and a caravan for me and my wife for £89 a year, I would use them. Cover that includes breakdown, hotels onward travel to the destination, repatriation of my vehicle and even air ambulance home if one of us has been injured in a crash. Maybe you could recommend a British company that could do that for £89 a year. Should I hold my breath while I wait?
  4. Glossop sell used awnings too. I bought my first from e-bay and saved hundreds of pounds. It was second hand.
  5. A liberal application of common sense can often assist.
  6. I am pretty sure that they are universal fit - they have enough "gather" in them to fit all awning widows. I did this search on ebay and got these results. You could always get your awning out and measure the windows. https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313.TR3.TRC1.A0.H0.Xcaravan+awning+curtains.TRS0&_nkw=caravan+awning+curtains&_sacat=0
  7. I think full awnings are much better on a seasonal pitch. They are fixed to the caravan all the way round. But it really does depend on how well they are put up and pegged down. For the first time there are a couple of air awnings on our site. It will be interesting to see how they survive the season. It wouldnt be my choice.
  8. Search for your caravan here. https://www.isabella.net/uk/support/search-on-a-measurement That will give you the size.
  9. I took my bike test when I retired at 60. Now, ten years later I am planning our latest trip to Europe - with her ladyship on the back on my 1000cc Honda. Keeping a copy of your paper licence is a really good idea. Mistakes happen and entitlements get left off renewed licences.
  10. https://travelmoney.moneysavingexpert.com/ The end.
  11. Brits dont do mass civil unrest. We stand around in the drizzle with banners saying "Bad form, old chap" and "Just not cricket."
  12. Yes the return drive from Dover to Merseyside was the clincher for us too.
  13. Our favourite too. Years since we drove down to that there South.
  14. Whereas the front seats in our van make up to a bed that is 6'10" x 5'11" It would need a lot of persuasion to swap that for something that is totally inadequate for my height.
  15. I'm 6'3". This is why I laugh every time I see a fixed bed. £20,000 and I can't sleep in it. Having a laugh. And no, we aren't at all interested in separate beds ..... we still have a pulse!
