  1. Leak from pull down sink

    Dealer is fixing what he says is a common fault with the pull down sink design luckily still in warranty
  2. Hi everyone just in middle of couple of days break in Dorset and suddenly noticed water coming out of the shower room after we had drained the pull down sink was fine at first so bit of a mystery. Anyone else had this happen?
  3. Not familiar with the Adora Baddon sounds a real pain tbf.
  4. Tbh I don't have an issue with this it's all part of the experience getting down and dirty I guess if you're getting on a bit and the old knees have gone then this would be a trial but then so would a few things we have to do when setting up etc

    I don't know of any models whether foreign or U. K. made that don't experience snagging from new. I suppose it's just a question of scale our van has had a few minor niggles and one serious one all of which have or will be sorted by our dealer.

    Strangely no issues experienced with the battery locker all snags were with the internal cupboards

    Update spoke to Ben at Adria UK and he has confirmed that they will honour warranty repairs on the mirror as long as they happen in the first two years. Dealer has been informed of this so hopefully all sorted.

    Hi BradleyWiggins yes I followed your progress re purchase etc of the Isonzo it looks a lovely van and compared to our Severn the bathroom is big enough. The annoying thing for us is the attitude of the dealer who is telling us Adria don't want to know. I'm not so sure and I'm going to check with Adria after this weekend to get their take on this.

    According to our dealer a customer of his had unsuccessfully taken Adria to court regarding the mirror issue. Their explanation laughably is toothpaste causes the discolouration. So whatever you do don't brush your teeth in your bathroom. You couldn't make it up! Oh and three year warranty doesn't cover the bathroom mirrored area??!!

    Hi everyone new season started in the our van damp problem has been repaired by dealer over the winter and a couple of snags fixed. Entering the bathroom we noticed discolouration in the mirror glass which is fixed to bottom of the pullout sink Looks like another warranty fix. But also seems to indicate a design fault with this particular type of washroom. Anyone else had issues with the mirrors?
  11. Larger Washroom

    Thanks for the thoughts and suggestions guys I guess it depends on your priorities.
  12. Larger Washroom

    We've got the Adria Severn 2015 6 berth van. The washroom cum toilet/shower room is a bit cramped and over time has become more of an issue so are there any 5/6 berth models out there with larger washrooms that don't cost the earth?
  13. Does Caravanning Get Easier?

    Firstly we don't tow so that's one less worry we store on site. The owner tows out of the store onto a pitch and lowers the steadies. As the pitches are usually fairly level the last two breaks there was no levelling. It probably takes 15 to 20 mins to hook up and load up the van with our stuff. It actually takes a lot longer to pack up because SWMBO insists on cleaning hoovering everything and vacuum packing the bedding before we leave. We have got more adept over time.
  14. Me too! I don't tow which means having the van sited in an area we visit often is very convenient no issues with security
  15. Adria Bought Out?

    According to a Facebook post Adria on the verge of being bought out unfortunately can't read German but that's the gist of the report in Camper Journal. Anyone else heard anything?
