  1. Yes David, I hope to return next year. As to 'what as', hmmm- that needs further thought .
  2. Arrived home from Pickering a few hours ago, really glad that I went to this event, so very enjoyable. Caravan site turned into a quagmire, 230 units on site I was told, 2 tractors very busy getting folks on and off the site. A really well run event site organised by the Caravan & Camping Club, marquee with live entertainment, fantastic stewards (xxx to you all), lots of other nice touches provide by the C&C club - well done C&C. A great weekend and highly recommended. BTW, I inadvertently ascended the hairpin at Sutton Bank with the caravan in tow, the experience did make me concentrate a lot until I got over the top. Hoping no one has me on camera . East Yorkshire DA, Thank you. John (Glasgow)
  3. Is this what you are looking for, I've linked to both long and short versions. https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/153623722012?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=153623722012&targetid=522577553903&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=1007355&poi=&campaignid=1782815751&mkgroupid=70885937682&rlsatarget=pla-522577553903&abcId=1139356&merchantid=118933446&gclid=EAIaIQobChMInYiZuvyE5QIVi7TtCh3Zxw4ZEAkYASABEgLfEPD_BwE https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/153623721986?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=153623721986&targetid=594652408680&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=1007355&poi=&campaignid=6466521578&mkgroupid=83097927491&rlsatarget=pla-594652408680&abcId=1140486&merchantid=118933446&gclid=EAIaIQobChMInYiZuvyE5QIVi7TtCh3Zxw4ZEAkYAiABEgIkp_D_BwE
  4. So far I have I have had only good dealings with C&CC managers, a polite approach is what is expected (as I would expect), even had the site managers ask me what view I would like (Glencoe) and invited me to pitch nose in if I preferred, play the game chums, the site managers are deserving people just like us, not servants . If you find a 'baddy' report them, but only if they have been 'out of line'. Our lives are too short, same goes for the site managers
  5. I tow a single axle Bailey Pegasus GT65 Ancona, car is a W212.
  6. That is a very sensible decision arty 25, enjoy your van.
  7. I think an injury compensation claim would be successful in this case.
  8. We cannot tell exactly how much gas you used on each appliance, everyones usage will vary as you know. Your usage does not seem at all unreasonable at under a litre of gas per day.
  9. Perhaps I should have booked an earlier arrival, I don't know if that is possible but I can check it with the site organisers. Thanks J&J, I will need to carry a big S&S sandwich board to be noticed by the sound of it .
  10. Hi Geoff, My booking has been confirmed at the C&CC site, I can now look forward to finding out for myself what the event is all about.
  11. Nearest mainland one I can see is https://www.parkdeanresorts.co.uk/location/scotland/sandylands/ There is a CS site at Loans near Troon, the ferry at Wemyss bay is 1 hour drive away. https://www.campingandcaravanningclub.co.uk/campsites/uk/ayrshire/troon/glenburndairy/
  12. Already allowed for thanks, I covered it in my initial post.
  13. I want to upgrade battery reserve power by fitting an extra 115 amp hour battery and attach it to the existing 115amp hour battery (existing battery has only recently been purchased). I have a typical battery compartment locker, there is no way I can install an additional battery into the existing battery compartment locker; I do not want to install the additional battery in the car. In-board of the existing battery compartment locker is an under-seat space, not at all well ventlated and it is in effect part of the main cabin space. How can I achieve this?, all things safety being the main priority. I have made allowance for the additional weight of the new battery with regard to payload and structural support etc. Lots of other questions arise, e.g, will my car alternator keep both batteries charged when the caravan is hooked up to the car? and do l connect the batteries in series or parallel and other such information that will give the best outcome. I intend to use solar panels when off EHU to maintain batteries (200w of portable solar power ). Would appreciate your advice and recommendations. Thanks, John
