  1. You get massages on your site ? We are lucky if we get the grass cut!😉
  2. After 30 years of various tourers both sited and touring I bought a static. I bought it in the knowledge that I would take a severe loss over the years, eyes wide open if you like. I love it ,every time I arrive I can't believe how nice it is,how spacious and luxurious it is, the fantastic decking areas the pure convenience of just arriving and it's all there. It really is a home from home, but like everything there are downsides, if you know what they are and happy to put up with them why not do it. N.B. my site is lovely and not a fully commercialised all singing
  3. Just sold one. Judging by the amount of dealers calling me making crazy offers they are clearly looking to buy stock. They are probably going to be selling at a premium soon,it costs nothing to put it up for sale so why not give it a go. I was pleasantly surprised at the response. (Sold it to some specky baldy guy driving a Landrover so no regulations were broken during the transaction 😉)
  4. Surely you cannot be expected to pay for a "luxury" item that you can't use? The government has effectively given rental tenants 3 months free rent and their housing is essential. It would be a brave caravan park that tried to enforce payment on this one. I think payment of a service charge might be reasonable perhaps 20% of fees as the staff will be getting 80% of wages paid by the government (and the bill will be coming to us taxpayers ultimately). We are all in this together all businesses need to be realistic in what they expect people to be able to afford and they
  5. It senses if the door is open and beeps to tell you.
  6. If there is finance of any kind on the van contact the finance company, let them know the issues and your plans to reject. Check out this thread https://www.caravantalk.co.uk/community/topic/122292-rejecting-caravan-after-10-months/
  7. I know this is an old chestnut and has surfaced on the forums on more than one occasion but I had a case of the dreaded Beeping Dometic Fridge at the weekend. Regular as clockwork 20 seconds of beeping every 3 minutes,door opened,door closed ..............................the tense wait.....................................is it fixed? Will we be able to have cold wine and sleep? Will we be choosing between warm milk or cold milk complete with twitching from the incessant beeps? Sadly I can't give you a fix but can give you a 10 second workaround that will give you a cold f
  8. Has anyone ever swapped with another static van owner?They come to your static for a fortnight and you go to theirs. Sounds good in theory and I am sure it could work,but has anyone ever done it? I know there could be a lot of pitfalls.
  9. One other point to be aware of, if the van has Alde heating there may be a radiator running along the foot of the bed stealing a few inches walking space. Doesn't sound a lot but once the bed is extended the space is tight enough without a radiator.
  10. I fed it in through the hole for the radiator pipe, ideally situated behind the tv.
  11. Thanks for the information guys, will let you know how I get on.
  12. I have a Willerby 38 and want to install cables for SKY. The Van already has an external tv aerial routed,is it possible to feed the Sky cable in the same trunking? I don't have access to the van till the season opens so haven't had a chance to get under it and take a look yet. I was hoping someone has done it already. cheers J
  13. I have never had the" pleasure" of owning a brand new caravan,but once again I have to applaud the bold(and rich) explorers that take that first step on my behalf. I admire the way you resign yourself to numerous dealer visits with an often misplaced sense of optimism knowing full well that there is only a slight chance they may resolve your issue, and knowing that there is a very high chance that you will be back next month for the same issue along with another issue that you haven't discovered yet! Whilst this post may have my tongue firmly in my cheek I really do believe that brand new
  14. Thanks for the replies, I didn't think they would be there. So Screwfix it is! AS an aside I noticed that even 2018 tourers are still coming with only 1 satellite connector.
