  1. I also have a steering lock just to slow them down and I am amazed that car companies didn't think of the thieves being able to overide the system. Plus its like going back to the seventies having to put that big yellow contraption on. I keep both sets of keys in a tin in the hope that that might do something. In my immediate area in just one week we had 4 BMW's taken and one Mercedes, guess what I have , so I'm a bit twitchy about it.
  2. Duly noted Wunny, thank you.
  3. I do see your point BG, I wouldn't put cheap tyres on the car for love nor money but the caravan doing maybe 1500 miles tops during any year at 60 mph at most is swaying me a bit. (no pun intended)
  4. Yes cheap but a brand I recognise I think. My logic is saying that I can maybe buy another set of cheapies, ie 2 sets, for the price of a half decent ones. I will have to make sure that the manufacture date is as new as possible though.
  5. I need to change the tyres on my twin axle Bologna because of the cracks developing on the sidewalls and the fact that they are the original tyres from new. This van hasn't done many miles in its life so the tread in as new condition. As ordinary car tyres are fitted to the Bologna do I buy what it came with, Michelin Energy, or shall I just plump for some real cheap tyres. I can get Kumo tyres for around £38 plus fitting so cheap as chips, I don't do a lot of miles with the van and they would become out of date before much tread was worn off of them. As you can tell I'm thinking of the cheaper option but give me your views on this please.
  6. Sorry to hear you are unhinged. You could probably pick up some spares the same as that in B&Q or Wickes. They may well be a bit stronger.
  7. I am fortunate to have my twin axle at the end of the row so I can move to the periphery of my plot and not interfere with anyone else's space. The only trouble with that is that it gets some dirt thrown over it by the odd persons who do not drive slowly enough. There are two wash bays, and an airline so its easy to clean up.
  8. We have a 2013-2014 GT65 Bologna and it has been brilliant. Its a twin axle and tows very well. As far as the whale heating goes, just be patient and it will heat the whole van. You can also put the heating on a timer so that the van is toasty when you get back to it. I managed to rip the marker light off of the front when putting up the awning but that was because of my heavy handedness in pulling it through the rail. All in all this has been my best van and I cant wait to take it out again.
  9. Mine has been perfect so far, just to give the other side of the coin response.
  10. Ah thanks BC, I did think that they might be very easy as I couldn't find a 'how to' anywhere. Thanks for getting back to me.
  11. I have bought some new hinge pins for the front side locker on my Bailey Bologna GT 65. I have looked on YouTube and also googled how to fit them but I cannot find the way to do it. Now is it so ridiculously easy to do that nobody has bothered to write about it or do I have a problem. The new pins that I have bought are the Thetford part number 26430 SFD Hinge pin, I hope they are the right ones, they look it. So my question is how do you fit them? Of course I would have a better idea when taking the door off but I’m not near the van at the moment but would like an idea before I go. I hope you can all I help.
  12. The one thing with the adults only section is that the kids still run and ride their bikes through it negating the 'only' part of the title. Very tight entrance road as already said. Although it is a reasonable site, would I go back, well no I don't think I would.
  13. Mine is just over £600 but that is because I changed to a twin axle. The rent never seems to go up since I've been there which is about 10 years now.
