  1. It’s a great van - we have the Super QEB dealer special and love it. The end bedroom is amazing especially on longer trips like we had at new year. Hope all goes well and looking forward to hear about your adventures
  2. Strong winds are forecast for the NW again this weekend and we have reluctantly decided to cancel our weekend at CMC Meathorp Hall. Didn’t fancy towing back across some exposed parts of the M6 on Sunday if winds are as strong as predicted. Plenty of other weekends to get away
  3. Or just to be controversial as someone who drives a thousand miles a week it’s just that some drivers aren’t smart enough for smart motorways and shouldn’t be driving on them or any motorway?
  4. Having gone south for the NEC in October and purchasing our new Swift Celebrate Super QEB had better stay away from the Manchester show as may be to tempted to a new awning!
  5. We went on the Friday as well and looked at everything of interest without feeling cramped or having to wait to view a caravan we wanted to review. Be warned though the temptation to buy his hard to resist and we came away with a new TA Swift Celebrate Super QEB. Recommend being there for 10 to maximise your time. We arrived as it opened and didn’t leave until 5.30pm Have fun
  6. We are looking forward to a week away for New Year at the Wharfedale CMC at Grassington. Can’t wait
  7. We always avoid Snake Pass as you have through the centre of Glossop which can be a pain at times. We always use option 1 which Personally I think is a better scenic route. We go this way to to get to Chatsworth carrying out at the ‘Tideswell cross roads. In fact just got back home from Chatsworth today using this route.
  8. Hope you enjoy the new van it is an excellent layout and specced just right
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Well without tempting fate our 2017 Affinity continues to give us trouble free caravanning.
  14. 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.
