  1. Hope you enjoy the new van it is an excellent layout and specced just right
  2. The December 2020 dates will not be released until the first week in December 2019. The are currently showing as full because they haven’t been released. I booked Chatsworth for November 2020 and it was released on the 6 November 2019
  3. We will be going through same process on Thursday - again with our favoured dealer - and hope for the same treatment/result. We aren’t quick enough to give praise when due. Enjoy the van Jezzerb
  4. Well we are just about to switch back to Truma from Alde as the compromise to go into a TA van and the weight issue. Alde heating was difference between switching or not. The van has only 1 small section underneath the van which the dealers are lagging as part of the PDI. I will also look at potentially insulting some of the piping inside the van as well. Time will tell if the change back affects our enjoyment of the caravan as we tourer in all seasons
  5. We are just about to change our 2017 Elddis Affinity 550 for a 2020 Swift Celebrate Super Quattro EB. Went to the NEC not particularly planning to change but appreciated the different feel of a 8ft wide caravan. We loved the Affinity it has proved the perfect layout but have changed for a larger van with more living space as we are spending more time and longer periods in the van. Never had a TA before so will be interesting to see the difference.
  6. We are just about to change our Affinity 550 after 30 months of trouble free use. We also liked the darker wood in the Affinity and as we tour all year the Alde option. We loved the van and are upgrading to a twin axle with the 8ft option. We can only recommend as we find and the Elddis was a good van.
  7. Well without tempting fate our 2017 Affinity continues to give us trouble free caravanning.
  8. The above is about were I’m at on my 2017 Elddis Affinity- insurance with caravan club £404 storage £400 and service at main dealer £225.
  9. The latest videos are out for the 2020 new models http://bit.ly/2020ElddisVideo http://bit.ly/2020BuccaneerVideo http://bit.ly/2020CompassVideo
  10. We took our Affinity 550 back to Glossop for this recall and everything has been in order. From memory the recall was because the sealant/glue around the skylight front hinge had been an issue hence the recall. As as far as I’m aware I have seen no reports of problems about the seal around the skylight in general or any damp issues.
  11. We have done the same on our 550 as well. SWMBO can feel a draught even when I’m convinced there isn’t one!
  12. We purchased ours in the main because of stone chips - having previously had to pay a lot more than the cost of the cover to replaced a badly stone chipped window. We tour all year and use it all the time. Ours is a Pro-Tec which is easy to fit in 2 parts zipping up the middle. When wet we give it a good shake quick wipe down and leave out in the awning to finish of. No hassle at all and the extra peace of mind is great
  13. Happy to report that after 2 years trouble free touring our caravan has sailed through its 2nd service with no issues and a clean bill of health on the damp report. We love this van and hope it continues to serve us without incident for the next 12 months. At the moment we will be keeping the Affinity for a few years yet.
