  1. Thanks everyone for your input always interesting to get other opinions. oh and in answer to the question why was I not present of the three incidents only one was after delivery the last one. I live over three hours away and it was just not possible to be there. However if and it’s a big if I buy another caravan I will make sure I’m present at the point of delivery.
  2. So what you’re basically saying is I’m screwed? Even with photographic evidence? Looks like it!
  3. Hi all some advice needed please. We’ve purchase our third caravan and at moment we store on a caravan site. We have used the same site for 5 years and it has suited us well...... except for one thing. Three vans three issues with damage whilst in store latest van delivered today and got a call from the site owner saying that when they inspected the vehicle after arrival and presumably after the delivery driver had left they discovered a small dent in the wall of the van just forward of the main door. Now I had instructed the dealers to ensure that photos were taken of the van once it had arrived and Jm waiting to see if that did happen. If it looks as though the damage has been done yet again whilst in the site’s care how do I stand legally? The site owner has already said it weren’t them but he said that before and annoyingly I got the repair done on my insurance, as it was hard to prove who did the deed. This time however if the photos prove it was ok when delivered but the owner still denies liability how far can I push it. All advice gratefully received.
  4. As above we had a 2015 Altea Severn from new the flip down sink developed a leak and the mirror degraded. We sold it after they were replaced.
  5. Thanks for the advice but I don’t tow so would have to have it taken to the workshop.
  6. Tap was replaced on mine after frost damage and major repair completed on leak this will no doubt happen again we’ve swapped part exed for different van.
  7. Hi everyone we’ve had our awning rail damaged we think by the owner or one of his staff where we store it. It’s a Rimini 2016 I am going down the insurance route so I’m looking for recommendations for a quality coach works/trim fitter in the Dorset area?
  8. Hi everyone some advice please how do you remove the overhead reading spotlights in the lounge area they are the new led type. I’ve undone the screws but am not sure how to extricate the wires without breaking the thing. The lights are flickering when you switch on or off so have asked to be changed under warranty but my dealer says I have present the faulty lights to him so he can order replacements ours is a Bailey Pegasus Rimini 2016.

  10. We had the same problem with ours and this is fast becoming a common fault with the drop down sink. One of the reasons we partexchanged the van.
  11. Hi sorry about the exceptionally late response to both above comments been off grid for awhile but back now! To answer both of you we bought a 2016 Bailey Pegasus Rimini. This has 2 single fixed beds which does suit us better than the previous layout. Initially we bought the Adria thinking that the grandkids would stay in it but that wasn’t the case. The Bailey is a 4 berth and we’ve got an awning which we used last summer when we were descended upon by the horde. We also had a few issues which I could see re occurring the washroom tap leaked down the back and it was a pain to fix. We’ve also noticed since buying the newer van that there is less noise from outside as the soundproofing is better.
  12. We’ve stored and pitched at the same site for coming on 3 years now. Suits us as we don’t tow. Cheaper than seasonal pitch.
  13. So we finally bit the bullet and have part exed our Altea Severn for a different van with a layout that will definitely suit us better. There were niggly problems throughout our 3 years and we could see further issues returning so made the move to a newer van. Not an Adria so we will see how good / bad this one turns out to be.
  14. Any ideas as to where to get replacement decals to match.
