  1. Bit like the brake pedal on the younger motorists vehicles!
  2. Seeing how we've wandered of topic, I'm amazed at how many new cars nowadays arent fitted with traffic indicators, or are they optional extras like on BMW's?
  3. I recently stewarded a C+CC THS in North Wales, several Motor Homes were parked in the road outside our site, some even attempted to enter the site to use toilets and showers. When I aproached them they showed me an APP on their phone "QUITE SITES FOR MOTORHOMES" AKA Wild camping. So would you want to "Wild camp" in a dark lane for free or get the security of a locked site offering toilets and showers? We were charging £12 per night, If you've spent north of £40k why gib at £12 pun? Sorry Motorhomers I dont get it!
  4. Thank you John only just got read your travelogue as we have been stewarding a THS at Porth Madog, Stories to fill a couple of chapters of a book never mind a blog! Would love to welcome you up north my friend.
  5. Returning home from Porth Madog last Friday, I came up behind a very I mean very slow driver on the A470, very soon there was a long tail back behind me, at the next possible lay by I pulled over, and let the traffic behind pass, one or two gave me a 2 or even a 1 fingured salutation as they passed, obviously unaware of the slow driver in ront of me that they couldnt see. 5 miles further on at traffic lights I came up behind one of the drivers who had gestured towards me, justice!
  6. We are in Porth Madog setting up for a THS which starts today, the locals are saying they have never been busier, and because of Mr Drakeford you have to book everything in advance, and almost every attraction has been booked up for weeks. The upside of all of this of course is next year and year after there is going to be a flood of pre loved(?) ‘vans and motorhomes on the market.
  7. Interesting post and only the second time I've heard this, I'm stewarding a THS later in July, a lady phoned me this week to book on and asked if it was alright to book as she had a 'van with door on right side and in the past she had been refused on commercial sites! Every day a school day
  8. For honest no sales pitch reviews of caravans try Andrew Jeninson Caravan Expert. If its travelogues the TRUDGIANS are ok. JAYDUG has some wonderful blogs on here, very informative and an excellent read with loads of photos
  9. Volvo XC60 D5 AWD Auto, up to 2017 I’m over 6’ and a company sales rep on the road ( when we can) never had such a comfortable, easy to drive car. Got us out of snow, ice and mud. Great car
  10. Just got slated on another caravaning forum for saying "Wee Krankie will probably bring it forward to Easter just to top trump Boris" I bet she does!
  11. Totally off thread, but fits in with some of the Chinese meal posts. We had to visit several factories up country from Canton, so far out that electricity was only on 5 days a week. We arrived on none electric day so factory owner took us for a meal ay a restaurant which was 2 barges together on the river. After a delicious meal of goodness knows what, I asked if I could look around. The restaurant owner proudly showed me round and at the back of one barge was a stack of cages with live Ducks, pigeons, chickens, snakes, lizards, and dogs. When I asked through an interpreter what this was for answer was "no electric, no fridge, here food very fresh!"
  12. You're lucky to have roof straps! Seriously our brand new Lexon 570 in 2016 didn't have any roof straps, this was discovered when the roof bowed in! Sorted after a long battle as was discovered just before Lunar went belly up!
  13. On an Avondale Perle Olympus in the '80's the floor delamed, and almost every 'van from then to now has some delam, including our current Lunar Lexon which is waiting for its second dose of adhesive.
  14. I have the same model, what exactly do you need? I bought spares from Leisure Sales, Holmes Chapel, and from SPINNEY in Cranage. Any good Caravan Accessories shop will stock CADAC parts. I would suggest either a Propane regulator or a Bullet (connector) to connect to your caravan gas BBQ point if it has one.
  15. Couldnt possibly say, but he definitely has a Volvo
