  1. Hi we found our cooker glass top on the floor in front of the fridge ! No damage to either . This was after we arrived home and opened the door to empty the van . It’s only held on with two plastic screws.
  2. Some of the complaints about Alde heating is coming from some site owners about the amount of leccy they use in comparison to the truma blown air system . They can tell as the sites have meters on the pitches.
  3. Hi , it should be ok as long as we all remember to breath in !! We’ve spent a few holidays in NZ both north and south islands ( scenery so like home , same rain ) You would certainly know all about narrow roads ? My wife’s cousin in Auckland has a caravan that we stayed in on one visit they tour all over NZ and are enjoying it in their retirement . Thanks for you’re reply.
  4. Hi I’ve been to see the new Bailey Estoril Grande at my local dealers and am really impressed. We had a Bailey Cadiz for three years and were due to change 2 years ago but did not like the new cadiz . Dark wood and white doors also smaller beds did not do it for us but loved the changes to the outside of the body .Instead we bought a new Pegasus gt70 it looked the same as the old Cadiz in and out and suited us so had it for 2 years then saw the new Estoril and they have used the lighter wood and bigger beds also have much more room inside being 8ft wide . We have ordered a new Estoril Grande and will take delivery in March.
  5. Hi anyone know what happened to the “ new anti theft number plates “ I am sure I remember hearing about. You stick them on to the vehicle and if anybody removes them the numbers and letters breakup and come away from the Perspex plate leaving them useless.
  6. I thought it was because cpt manwearing now has a motor caravan that sites had to keep hard standing in case he wants to stay .
  7. Hi compact I have  the glc coupe  and it does as you say . I bought a new spare wheel and tyre on eBay steel space saver it came with its own bag . I had to buy shorter bolts for it . It fits in my boot under the lid floor  there is a place  on the right side for it to sit .  I am happier knowing it’s there when towing .  Jim

  8. Hi I bought caravan touch up paint on eBay for my Bailey so the colour matches.
  9. Hi I used a small touch up brush and painted the plastic bits at the A and E letters .
  10. Hi have you looked at a ssanyong korando 4x4 . It is one of the caravan club favourites and come with a great 5 year warranty. Also it has good towing limits you might be able to pick up a good used one with warranty still running on it .
  11. Hi I’ve had the E class diesel saloon towing a coachman pastiche 520/4 . After three trouble free years towing changed it for a GLA250 AMG line 4 wheel drive petrol towing a Bailey unicorn Cadiz. Now I have a GLC AMG line coupe diesel 4 wheel drive towing a Bailey Pegasus gt70 . All of these cars were new when I bought them and have had after market towbars fitted none of the dealers had any problem with this affecting the warranty. In fact one of the dealers took the new E class to have its tow bar fitted before I took delivery. I’ve had no problems having warranty work carried out. By the way COMPACT I bought a new space saver from a company on eBay, there is a spare wheel space under the floor in the boot to store it ! Why they don’t supply one is beyond me .
  12. Hi check out THE TRUDGIANS on you tube . ( Dan did a review on the ridgeway ) They are buying a new ridgeway . It may give more info etc.
  13. Hi Charl thanks for your reply the sites I have booked are Camping Spitsbroek to visit Brugge from . Camping Zeevangshoeve for Edam area and De Drie Provincien I have used the internet and KGC . In the uk we try and book small quiet camping grounds mostly adults only if possible of which there only seem to be three in the Netherlands. We used two of them last year. My wife was a school teacher and we both like peace and quiet at our caravan but spend most days out and about sightseeing . Jim
  14. Thank you all for your reply’s. I don’t mind paying for fuel but I’m Scottish and have a reputation to maintain. !!!!!
