  1. Would love to see any mods that you make , gadgets always float my boat
  2. hi Leesdad, I have the quattro motor mover installed to my twin axle van , not the AWD version may i add and i find it quicker than the powertouch mover on my previous van , i have only had it 2 weeks so not really had chance to fully test drive it the only thing that i have found is that on the powertouch you could ask it to do 2 different buttons ..i.e backwards and left and while going backwards you could just quickly blip left or right for small movements, with the quattro it's one button at a time and you need to stop that direction and press the next direction , i might not quite sussed it yet but thats how it was on the twice i have used it..but all in all a superb mover
  3. Fantastic, thanks for this Paul, my insurance company (caravan guard) insisted on tracker because of the value of the van, if i need the CRiS document i had better wait as i haven't had it yet As only picked the van up yesterday ..my preference would be not to have it as if it does get stolen it may be weeks before i go into storage , and would i want it back after someone has half stripped it down !! , thanks for all your help everyone ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  4. Hi Nanamel, thank you very much, i will give them a call tomorrow at least i have some idea of costs for the tracker as i had no idea. Cant wait to get it out onto pitch but that dreaded work word is getting in the way ...thanks again very much ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
  5. Hi Nanamel, I have just had my messina delivered yesterday and was told by the dealer that I needed to register the tracker myself , is this the case or did you register yours yourself ? I was given a credit card sized tracker card with a serial number on , and also as I cant contact them until tomorrow do you mind me asking how much they charged you for the service for tracking ?
  6. Hi All, yes Doosan i think you are right think i will go with the slightly open option to be on the safe side ! Thanks everyone , great to have people to bounce ideas off
  7. Thanks to all, on my old van the issue wasnโ€™t with the vertical opening doors..cupboards wardrobe etc..it was with the horizontal overhead ones that i opened fully all around the van to the ceiling these ones all dropped by approx 2โ€ when i returned back to the new season and had to physically hold them up to get stuff from the top shelves , i hoping it was just an elddis thing , as the van was a friday van from day 1
  8. Thanks all, i think i might play it safe and just leave them shut or just open the catches ..thank you all very much
  9. Hi All i have been caravanning for 7 years now and for the first 5 years i followed every advice on winterisation in particular opening all overhead lockers during the winter, i changed my Bailey last year for an Elddis and again left my cupboards open and the hinges went saggy and when they were opened after the winter they ALL needed support to keep open and kept dropping once left. ..i mentioned this to the dealer as it was a brand new van , they said that the new hinges on all caravans are not as strong as they used to be...they changed them and it fixed the problem so i left them closed this winter.... i have just purchased a new bailey Grande and due to collect next week so the question is.....lockers opened or closed as donโ€™t want to go back through the issues of 2018-19 ....any advice is appreciated
  10. Hi amy, We go to whitewater quite regular just to get away from the house, i know its only 5 mins up the road but honestky you could be anywhere in the country, its worth a go, its next to tees barrage, have tou been over that way at all ?
  11. Hi Amy, Try the caravan club troutbeck head site, its really nice and an easy tow straight up the A66 to penrith, good to see a local on this forum
  12. Hi butcherboy, They look like they will fit, it may be worth me contacting them in the morning and asking them, do you have those on yours ?
  13. Hi all, Im wondering if anyone can help me out with a suitable choice for a towing mirror that will fit the kia sorento 2014, my old mirrors dont fit the new kia so i need some more, the gap between the mirror and casing is very small and i need to know that they will fit before i buy them so if anyone has already fitted some to theirs i would really appreciate the feedback
  14. Hi mpg, i have the ancona, its a fantastic van and we love it, we have had only minor problems that were easy to fix, so dont be put off by some of the comments you read. .. I have installed a tv at the foot of the bunk at the bottom, you cant run cables round the internals of the van from one side to the other fir the aerial so i went from the middle dinette cupboard through an existing gas hole in the floor underneath the van and cable-tied it to existing pipework underneath and up a gas hole in the floor beneath the oven and into the bottom bunk, the connectors in the dinette cupboard have connectors on that can be split and a tee piece installed in seconds, the power for the tv comes from the sockets under the oven, if you have any questions about anything give me a shout
  15. Hi milkymarsh, We have a gt65 ancona and its fantastic. .we have 2 children 9 and 7 abd they love the bunks, the van is thinner than most vans inside but its never caused a problem, the heating is noisy if put on 2000w but we used it in the winter for the whole family and set it on 500w and had no issues with noise, its tows really well and we have had no issues whatsoever, reading the forums i guess im lucky, but hey who cones on a forum to says its fantastic, most cone on to vent a problem. I love mine so if you have any questions feel free to ask as i will be really honest.
