  1. Though not very helpful this is what is in the Buccaneer Handbook: "Care of Your Caravan ...... Upholstery Remove dust on a regular basis with your vacuum’s upholstery or drape attachment. Try to avoid brushing fabric covers because that can damage the pile. Only use an upholstery brush on the upholstery, never use any other type of brush to clean the upholstery as this may damage the pile. Avoid detergents which may damage the fabric’s protection. Use a sponge or a clean white cloth but do not wash or rub the fabric. Leave to dry in normal conditions. The
  2. Which make and model caravan have you got? What's below the sink?
  3. Our Heki roof light frame cracked and though there was no visible damage or standing to the ceiling boards once our dealer had removed the frame they found there was damp on the upper side of the boards. They said this was "wet" enough that they believed it would eventually have shown on the visible side. They therefore replaced the boards so I would not have to go back with another claim.
  4. Yes, collected van last Saturday. The missing fixings were put on the job sheet and all are now in place.
  5. Noticed missing fixings on my Buccaneer, not sure if they were ever put in. Going in for service next week and has been put on job sheet.
  6. Have a Clipper (2018) and there is a mains outlet and a USB socket in the front nearside corner. I fed a coax cable from the amplifier (in top locker by the door), by removing the curved plastic cover over the wiring "nest" it can be fed though the triangular cable cover, this trunking is quite full so the front may need to be removed, down into the floor locker. Then along the floor/wall corner to the front where it can be taken up to the socket block. I removed the usb socket and replaced it with an aerial socket.
  7. We have a 2018 Clipper. These raised "platforms " are in several of the lockers and, I think, are to help with airflow from the floor vents, so you don't cover them with stuff you put in the locker.
  8. Check out the Volvo XC90. Tows like a dream and has 7 seats with the 3rd row easily large enough for adults.
  9. I think it's the Tracker Retrieve, it certainly was in 2018 and 2019. If so unless you have your caravan somewhere where you can keep an eye on it the tracker is next to useless. You have to let the monitoring centre know your van is missing, then they will attempt to make "contact" with the tracker unit in the van to find out where it is. If your van has been missing for more than a few hours, the thieves have probably already found and disabled the tracker unit.
  10. Did the package look as though it had been opened or damaged? If so then you could try making a claim against the courier. If not then it sounds as though it was not in the package at all, so contact Facebook Support.
  11. We're lucky and have ours: Volvo XC90 followed very closely y a Buccaneer Clipper. Only wish (wishful thinking more like) would be a better payload for the van, though I guess that's everybody's wish.
  12. I think Buccaneers have Aluminium skinned walls and roof. You will be lucky to find a van that has an Aluminium front or rear though.
  13. Perthshire Caravans have also announced their closure on their website, and Swift have closed their factory completely.
  14. She just needs to back it up with legislation and enforcement - here's hoping she does!
  15. When I installed our bracket I "increased " the panel thickness just above the fridge and mounted the bracket a little higher than I would have liked catching the batten with the top two screws and left the lower one
