  1. Just someone who dabbles in the second hand market. Leaves lots of such notes and the law of averages says they will get a few responses and possibly a van at a knock down price that they then trade on.
  2. Like everything 'you only get what you pay for'!
  3. The company is no doubt struggling at the moment but it is a joint venture between SNCF and London Continental Railways (LCR). The French 'Non' is probably their opening position in the negotiations that may or may not be taking place - too much false news about at the moment!
  4. I totally agree with everything you say - quite why people see this new food regulation a problem is beyond me.
  5. No. It appears that the rule of thumb in Spain is - If you are standing you have to wear a mask - and the Spanish police /Authorities will definitely enforce it - unlike here. So, no I would not enjoy it one bit, and I think it very selfish/stupid to even consider travelling outside of your own area. The sooner the UK police start enforcing the rules and issuing on the spot fines the better. The mob that attending the 'rave' in a park in Wales should have had their vehicle number plates recorded by the police and fines issued to every registered owner, no trial, no excuses.
  6. We have had our 2011 Clubman si since 2013. At purchase a new battery was fitted and since then the van has been stored at home and permanently connected to the mains. So it has been fine for nearly 8 years with no problems at all - although I have no probably put the kibosh on that!
  7. Updated link for the Waste Water Pipe Support Straps:- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Caravan-Waste-Pipe-Adjustable-Support-Straps-for-rigid-flexi-pipes-SET-of-3/393025953114?hash=item5b822c1d5a:g:aj0AAOSwPjxflTnA
  8. Have just been checking ferry prices for next year on our iPad and did not find it very user friendly - has anyone else had the same experience? The Eurotunnel site was very easy to navigate and cheaper,
  9. You can't beat a good, traditional cotton towel! And they are more environmentally friendly.
  10. I agree, the state of the UK roads is appalling. We regularly visit family in Luxembourg and the roads there are like billiard tables, regularly resurfaced and a joy to drive on.
  11. 3gb a day!!!!!! What on earth are you doing to use that amount?
  12. I use TomTom Go for iPhone primarily - that and a map. I tend to stick on the 'A' roads until within striking distance of my destination and then take a pre-planned route decided on by using a map and Google street view. This nearly always means I don't come across any surprises! I have also started using Apple Maps for general navigation. It has recently undergone a major update and the interface is very clear and user friendly and of course, free, to iPhone users. The voice instructions are very good. Instead of "In 200 yards turn left" it says "In 200 yards turn left at the l
  13. An update of the link for the Adjustable Waste Pipe Support straps for anyone still interested:- https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Caravan-Waste-Pipe-Adjustable-Support-Straps-for-rigid-flexi-pipes-SET-of-3/393025953114?hash=item5b822c1d5a:g:aj0AAOSwPjxflTnA...

  15. Under the boot floor of my car I always carry all the basic tools I might require for car/van (don't plan on removing a wheel bearing or cylinder head while away) so I just grab the drill, raise the steadies and then put it in car. Van is stored at home - it must be a right hassle having the van in storage miles away.
