  1. We are buying a Williby Ashurst 10x32 for delivery January to Portugal can't wait.
  2. We suffer from at lot of dust in the very dry Portuguese climate and fly swots, by far the best way I have found is magic sponges from the supermarket.
  3. We still have our home in Axminster which is rented to a manager of a care home this gives us a good monthly income and if things do go wrong we still have a home to go back to.
  4. What a interesting blog, we have friends at Dursley who we are in touch with weekly on Zoom. As you may know we have taken up residence in Portugal and we hope to buy a smaller caravan maybe a Eriba or a Freedom, if we do we will follow your Blog when we return.
  5. I need to reseal the rail above my front windows, what seal can I use and any advice on how to go about it, thanks.
  6. Update on my blind I was unable to repair it with the help of YouTube because the consertiner fly screen was badly buckled and the cords where in such a mess. So I reconnected a couple of Swift dealers in the UK both went around the £300 mark but due to Covid 19 it would be 8 weeks delivery! Plus now they would not deliver it to Portugal. So I contacted Camperserv in The Algarve there had one in stock at 200€ ! Including 23% tax. So we went there yesterday a hours drive also had lunch out and fitted it in five minutes.
  7. I have done that and put a screw in where one part is broken. But the cords are in such a mess I cannot work out where they go!
  8. I have a Swift Coastline 584se which I am selling here in Portugal, I need a Seitz blind 790 x 560 I have contacted caravan scrap dealers in UK but no one has one, I now need to find a good priced one, I have been quoted £300 plus carriage to Portugal. Before anyone says buy one out here there almost no caravan dealers out here if any! Any suggestions on suppliers ?
  9. Try there contact page on there web site or even there Facebook page, maybe still not reopened?
  10. Yes it has http://www.niewiadow.pt/prod/52/n126ntl?fbclid=IwAR01fHxMWjq91OR-OkEc_sw7-Dur17cE_4zYB_14MwAYqmUNPwt6_P96QVw Yes we are buying new, we went something small, at present we have a Swift 584se which is to big for weekends away.
  11. As some of you may have seen we live in Portugal, having looked a ways of buying a Freedom caravan we have found the best way to buy is from the importer in Portugal because buying from the UK would incur import taxes we could not tow it back as it would have to have Portuguese plates and cheaper out here! But we cannot view as all the Freedoms are sold before importing! Would you buy without seeing one we are so keen yes we would!
  12. We are interested in a small caravan for a couple of nights away from our home in Portugal as we have towing large rigs for to long. The caravan was horrible very dirty, front panel broken and it blow the sellers consumer unit so badly he needs a new one! 3500€ of rubbish. As it almost impossible to find caravans in Portugal we are thinking of driving to Holland to buy a Eriba.
  13. Tomorrow we are going to look at a Sterkeman caravan which is being sold in Portugal by a Dutch storage company, I only at this stage have photos and the fact it's light weight. What do I need to be looking for?
  14. Thanks I had a good look round and my caravan may be worth £9000, as it has a island bed it is well sort after.
  15. We have a Swift Coastline 584se 2012 which we wish to sell, its in good order new tyres earlier this year etc. How do I value this?
