  1. We are with A Plan insurance brokers.Been with them for five years and they have always got us a good deal.My insurance went up £4.00 for our LR D4 wifes astra came down a few pounds.Saga are a joke if you think they are good for us seniors citizens.
  2. I have the opposite problem.I do not want to come back. After a few days,my caravan is my home in the sun in France or Spain (usually ) we stay away as long as possible but need to return after 5 weeks to attend garden at home etc. If the weather was guaranteed to be sunny and warm the year round I would live the caravan life ..for ever..What do I miss when away ? not a lot.
  3. No way would I accept that,ask them remove pegs and see what response you get.If not to your liking move them yourself. Thing is its not like a neighbor dispute at home if upset them you or they cam move. Make sure of your rights first but from what I see here they may just simply not have understand camp site etiquette,maybe newbies.
  4. I have used a cover for the last six years no problem.Not seen any scratches or marks on the paint.No sign of condensation.Washed and polished once a year, put away in storage and when ready for the season to start take cover off and looks fine.
  5. Good idea if you are 6ft plus and a young body builder type,if you are like me 5ft 7in and 72 years old not a good idea.If they are ignorant enough to throw rubbish out of the window like that they are not going to say oh sorry i will pick it up and put it in the bin.doubt if the police will do anything anyway.
  6. All over in less than 5 mins if its a so called" good one", take no notice of me and go and enjoy, you may like it so much you will want to return and see it again and there again you may not.I mean some people find Stonehenge exciting.Please let us know what you think after the experiance. I am a nice guy really its that it does not seem like it sometimes.
  7. Living in Gloucester seen the "bore" quite a few times as a lad. Dont' get too excited it's appropriatly named
  8. Sorry Sam I should have read your comment more closely I realiase you were reffering to a secondary alarm battery.
  9. Thanks Sam,is there a draw on the battery even if the alarm is only in survelance mode? I would have thought a large caravan battery would have lasted for over a month.I can take another battery to the compound to change the battery over when and if needed. I asume if the battery goes flat the alarm will just not operate ? malc
  10. Thinking I would like to put the caravan alarm on on my Bailey Senator when parked in the compound. Would a fully charged battery be ok ? how long could I expect to run before a charge was needed ? It has a cover on the caravan so a solar charger would not be suitable. Thanks malc
  11. How many of you people do their own caravan servicing ? I have been a caravanner for many years and we only use our caravan once a year to travel to Spain for about 3 months at atime.I have never had a professional service and I have never had any problems I could not fix myself. Being handy with the spanners, I can pull cars to bits etc. I have just used my common sense in maintaning my caravan and have done jobs as and when they are needed.The only time I needed to pay was when my motor mover failed just out of warranty and an independant man fixed that for me £90.00 plus parts.I was ok with that as he had to come back with the parts .To be honest it does not seem rocket science IMO to service the van.What do you guys think ?
  12. Look at Google earthon you PC. Obtain Longtitude and Latitude,put those into your sat nav and arrive exactly where you want to go. We use this to get to anywhere we want to in France or Spain. Once you have mastered how to use Long and Lat you will realise just how accurate it is.
  13. !! almost the same as mine bought November 2015
  14. Why did the engine sieze on your disco ? I have a D4 and I am aware of the broken crankshaft problem,was your crankshaft the problem ?
