  1. hi Ian ive just googled them,save me taking fotos etc https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/171901723389?ul_noapp=true ouch! just seen the price is for 3.there must be 50 on ours get dealer to supply them Also Ian if i remember you had a leak on your 16? maybe that was the problem
  2. yes i found this out via the dealer had stumbled accross this. i found out as the floars where not tightened enough and leaked when i filled the onboard tank. this was on our 2016 cruiser.also the dealer then fitted red clips to all the push fit joints throughout the van to stop them coming loose and leaking.
  3. Add 9 5 west dorset rally at lychette minster 1 tredegar house CMC 3 burford CMC ours20 running 203
  4. +1 but id would also go thru ebay as to retrieve a partial refund.the seller may agree to that.or tell him not as described and you will get refund thru the resolution system.your not trying to pull the wool over his eyes.just something towards the repair. maybe 50/50?
  5. I got a funny feeling i know where this is going to go.. How long have you had the van? Where did you buy it from ,dealer or private? I would think dealer if its ben back once Hae you made a complaint about the way they have handled your Already complaint and new faults list? Some info will give a bigger picture as to if there is any advice avail
  6. looks like a site we went to last year.same thing happend.we spoke to the warden and they moved us insted .(which we didnt mind) saved conflict but must say its not ideal It was on that site that it happened to us.ive left a review in the section.some people think they own the pitch.maybe they do but it doesnt mean they have to use every inch of it. And then kick there football at our van as a goal posts. And the prices charged wasnt much cheaper than a CMC site.
  7. I would look at a company called Which Legal Services. and give them a ring with all the details and see if they can help.It is advertised that they charge you £75 per year.not to cover just this 1 incident but anything that needs legal atention for 12 months
  8. Also bear in mind about the weight on the side of the van.the bigger the heavier it is
  9. Was just wondering how old your van is.or more so the gas hoses? Is the rubber perishing from inside? It is supposed to last 5 years,and should be date stamped
  10. i have seen a wind out awning that fits on the roof.think its called a thule? basically its glue to the roof and then winds out.have seen 1 with led attached too. https://www.thule.com/en-gb/gb/caravans-accessories/awnings/thule-omnistor-6300-260x200-_-302100
  11. In 2000 we bought a 2. 5 yrs old abbey vogue,we never had a fault with it,(seems to be that era).i gave it to our son 12 year later and it still going strong. we have a 2016 cruiser that has had a few faults but relativly all good.£35k, gave that to our son ,and still no faults, bought a 2017 buccaneer commadore again £35k small amount of faultsgave that to our daughter ,last year we bought a kontiki 669 and upon collection had loads of faults £100k. we rejected it. so what do you do? bought a new 2019 cruiser £40k has had its faults already.albeit minor.and we have a 2013 669£55k kontiki and love it.although it had a minor fault.we love it. so i think what ever you choose be it carefully
  12. Grp sides .They formerly had these on the buccaneers and had problems so went to alu sides.Althought buccaneers state that no wood is used in the construction,they do have timber floors.But these are lined. That still doesnt equate for £7k bettter construction of the swift to price match the buccaneer.without level and heating floors.If it was added then that would make the swift worth £41k
  13. Elegance Elgrande FROM £33,725.no self level or underfloor heating? where did Swift think this was in the £30k bracket? E and P level £5k heating £2k = £7k.like of like van brings the Swift down to (buccaneer £34k -£7k ) £27k new for new oh I remember just because they can
  14. Running total is 186
  15. can i shame them now?.prob my fault as i didnt ask when taking out the insurance.bit of a grey area.does any body know what they will deff be doing in 9 months time? guess not, but if you dont then you have to pay for the privilege
  16. Weve just had our new green card and we had to state which counties and how long the trip was for.everything else was crossed out.Also because we didt ask when we renewed in sept we had to pay now £50 until the expiry of the insurance
  17. So from the video ,it shows 65% tree along 2 sides and facing up a hill the other side. How are the views grand? unless maybe the site is on a 45 dregree angle?
  18. Milenco stacka blocks.we have a pack of 12 that make up into different hieghts
  19. add 2 plz Brecon CMC ours 11nights running 126
  20. It depend on what avenue you want to take.worry about the season and easter.or let the dealer get away with it. Either way you are not going away for easter unless something else happens. If you go along with dealer all the time its only going to slow thing down. You will never be happy with the same van or another from the same dealer.get out now whilst you can.
  21. So have you rejected it? or are you going for another repair.bit confused with your last post
  22. 21 hours ago, chris76 said: Will do mate it was actually quite easy although I used a thin fibreglass electricians rod, More commonly know as a cobra,if any body needs to buy 1 for the job
  23. I am awaiting someones reply, as to why have 2 aquarolls outside the van?
  24. Might the insurance have to be notified of this modification too. Or would it come under Original manufacturers specs? Would they try to wriggle and say it was too heavy in the event of a claim?
  25. you may find that they are just 165/15 as if they are 15years old they didnt need to allow for profiles.As in traailer tyres. and cars like early minis etc. and most are not into balancing them either.
