  1. There is no doubt that Tracker, Phantom and all the devices for locating your caravan are a good idea. The problem is, who is going to look for your van when there is not enough police to go around now.
  2. Bite the bullet and look at taking your B+E course & test. not only will you gain the new licence, but the information gleaned from the instructor is very beneficial.
  3. We are now into our third season using a Kampa Ace Air Pro 400, condensation has been minimal, although we do ventilate the awning all day & at night. It is heavier pulling it through the awning channel but we now remove the front and rear doors which makes it easier. Having been through seven poled awnings in our caravaning years I don't think we will return to them.

    We have a Next Base 202 which I find the instructions not very explanatory, however whilst waiting in the car outside our daughters house I watched a very dubious vehicle with three creatures inside, driver got out and pretended to check front of car whilst looking at two houses. Gotcha I thought, but before advising police I downloaded the footage onto my laptop only to find it was too dark to see anything. Since then I have had Halfords turn up one of the gizmos to give a brighter picture.
  5. Yes Andy, but would not budge, but I will still get a quote from them next year, you never know. I also think prices differ from where you live and is influenced by your post code.
  6. Our renewal has just arrived from the CMC and it had increased by £100 for no reason at all. I have now insured with Saga £120 cheaper and new for old. I can't figure it out.
  7. Do mean your Heki roof lights
  8. Our insurance for the van is due, we have been with the CMC since 2011. The van we now have is over five years old and the CMC renewal was quite high, trawled through and saved £120 with Saga new for old so very pleased. whether it will remain good value come renewal we will have to wait and see.
  9. We are into the sixth year of our 2013 Clubman SB and overall very pleased, it has had all front windows replaced due to warping and I am glad the new window catches lock as the old window levers opened on the drive up the M6, had to call into the services and use string to hold them closed, I put that down to vibration coming from unbalanced tyres . Another important factor is buying from a reliable dealer who gives good after sales service.

    Weighing In

    Yes local sand pit, free if you don't want a ticket, very helpful. The van was nowhere near what the manufacturer stated.
  11. ````````I am looking for new tyres for our van, had some good local quotes but the moment I mention Tyron Bands the majority have said, "whats that" or, can't do it. Having contacted our dealer, they gave me the name of their local tyre supplier who offered me GT Kargos 185 R14s fitted for £76.00 each. What is your opinion of these please

  13. Glad you arrived at the CL safely, we stayed at Scar Close last year and thoroughly enjoyed the site and surrounding areas. The only advice I can give you is when you are five miles from site, turn your sat. nav. off and read the directions to the CL in the Sites Directory. Enjoy your caravanning and hope to hear from you again soon
  14. We skied for 28 years in La Plagne, mostly we drove to the resort. I cannot comment on Le Grand Bornand but from the valley floor to the La Plagne ski area is 17 kms. , with lay bys every kilometre. An electronic map situated at the bottom of the road advised you what lay by to pull in to fit your chains, If you didn't the Gendarme at the lay by sent you back down the mountain. Chains were compulsory if the road conditions dictated it.
  15. Yes, ours is the same size, fits snug and the motor mover cables fit on top perfectly.
