  9. Hi, We have a built in towbar -- has a small eye for breakaway cable. I was not at first able to use it but later i came across this, Its a headsail ( main sail ) on a yacht clip . It takes not only the weight of the sail but also the force of the wind. Vendor states a Min breaking load of 1038 Ft pounds. Its quick release as well. Made from stainless steel.
  10. Here is the repairs( 3 of the 12 i have done ) Theirs 12 screws in ours ---- & 12 cracks !
  11. Hi, We have a 2012 520/4 Amara. I am now repairing the ABS front cracks -- for the third time ! These cracks run from screw holes used for the mounting of the window bar. It seems they ( as does a number of other caravan makers ) just drive screws through the plastic without clearance holes. I am aware that Coachman now bond most of their external items onto the body. Here is the repairs( 3 of the 12 i have done )
  12. Hi, Just paid ours -- £480 for the year. CCTV, Electric gate ( controlled by owner ) Cafe, toilet, fresh water. Owner relaxed regarding caravan repairs. In the Wirral.
  13. we envy you --- not been away since Oct 2019 ( sheltering etc ) looking at all this sunshine & the threat of another lockdown ......
  14. We had one of these switches ( basic ) in our first Coachman . Arriving at a C/L i was puzzled why the pump kept running . On lifting the seat i found out why ---An "O" ring had failed on the switch. The bed locker had around 1/2" of water in it........
  15. Hi, It seems that Coachman Caravans Ltd have severed all connections with the Coachman owners Club -- wonder what next...........
