  1. we had a stress crack on our 5 year old vip which was repaired under warranty just over one year later it cracked again in the same place in the nearside rear top corner near marker light . we got in touch with dealer they said nothing they could do as it was just out of warranty on work carried out by dealer we contacted coachman and was told to put gaffer tape over 5inch crack or sealer and as to repairing it well its out of warranty they said so we had to have it repaired again to our own cost
  2. anyone have trouble with caravan door catching the middle tube on air awning and any tips on how to overcome the problem our awning light over door is half moon shape so tube will not fit flush to caravan thanks
  3. has anyone tried and tested this awning we are thinking if purchasing one would like any feedback if possible thanks
  4. thankyou for feedback we have viewed both awnings dorema and bradcot and we found good and bad points with both but we are swaying more to the dorema/ we dont like the position of door at the side of the bradcot also the air frame is all one and if a problem with a air leak it has to go back to bradcot for repair . were the dorema you can isolate and use a repair kit if needed.
  5. could anyone give any feedback on the bradcot air awning aspire i am thinking of purchacing one or the dorema magnum air all season thanks
  6. Just picked our caravan up after it's 3rd year service I could not believe the price. The price for exactly the same service was £198 last year and £279 this year. I don't even pay that for a car service. It's a VIP 460 2 berth. 2 shot nuts were £2. 50 last year and £24 this year. Do they pick these prices out of mid air or have things really gone up this much ?
  7. yes our 2012 vip 460/2 had over 50% damp at front had to go back to coachman for re sealing round all the front windows. we have also had numerous other problems so dont no were the quality control comes in . but on the plus side we do like the van inside interior.
  8. the dealer said 1year coachman said 1 year and tyreline who supply the wheels said 1 year
  9. we never expected so many problems on our 2012 van and now we have another one the wheel rims are starting to pit these are only guaranteed 1year we have been informed. surely when you buy a new caravan with a 5 year warranty it should not be 1 year for this and 1 year for that it should mean 5 years on everything especially when you are supposed to be buying a quality van. damp, new windows,fridge door, battery charger,awning light /alarm. screws dropping out drawer runners, side seat panel coming away, water leaks on front hatch. decals discolouring, repair on offside front which no one will admit to it being repaired . did we have a friday or monday norning van or a factory second,we thought they went through a quality control check before leaving the factory.
  10. THANKS FOR ALL YOUR REPLIES CONTACTED ISABELLA AND THEY RECOMEND 950cm BUT IN THE COACHMAN HANDBOOK IT SAYS 938cm SO WE ARE GOING FOR THE 950cm THANKS JOHN
