  1. I was told Willerby make the site selling the van to you responsible for first point of contact regarding warranty issues. They ( the caravan site ) then interface with Willerby regarding the warranty issue. I believe the Caravan site negotiate what they - the site will fix and what Willerby will be required to send a representative or parts to fix. I was told a Willerby team come on site once a month to rectify issues ( jeez I thought - are there that many issues ) I'm lead to believe that Willerby did come on site and replaced the wall panel that split. - that took about 1 month. For the leaking kitchen tap fitting ( 2 attempts to fix ) and the sticking drawer - the caravan site handy man fixed those. - took a couple of months as several attempts were made. The other issues i don't know who fixed them. - patio door 1 month after reporting, paint peeling from door handle about 2 months ( probably cos new handles needed ordering ) . Shower head 1 month for parts and I fitted them myself during the second month, cos i could'nt wait any longer having them sit there and not fitted. Like I said before - I like the layout, but in "my humble opinion" as an ex Quality Auditor, Willerby Quality - is not as good as I would of expected !!
  2. Willerby Skye static, In the first year from New, all done under warranty:- Interior wall panel split on receipt of van, had to be replaced. Leaking kitchen sink, fixed on second attempt. Patio doors had to have hinge screws tightened as they were totally loose and doors needed aligned. Drawer that was seriously tight to open and close needed fixed. Shower pole and hose needed replaced as they were rusting. Entrance door handle paint peeling back to base metal needed replaced. Now just out of warranty I notice the toilet roll holders are lightly pitted with corrosion. Exterior door stops are showing some rust. I like the Willerby layout - but I could'nt recommend them
  3. Check that gas bottle is not leaking by wetting the fittings with a soap solution and look for bubbles. I had a small mesh filter dislodge from within my fitting that subsequently created a poor gas seal at the bottle and I only got 2/3 of what I expected from a gas bottle.
  4. Well I love my Willerby Skye, but the build quality is not what I expected. Under the first years warranty I had to get replaced, 1. An entire internal panel as it had a split, 2. External patio door refitted as there were no screws in the hinges, 3. Shower head holder and hose replaced, as the bar and hose were rusting, 4. External door handle replaced as the paint was peeling. 5. Repair a leak from under the Kitchen tap fitting 6. Drawer fixed that was really stiff to close Now thats all fixed, I hope I have no more problems with it. That said, its now out of Warranty and I see the chrome toilet roll holders are lightly pitted with corrosion. I love the layout, but not their quality. In my opinion they are just pushing them out the door asap. Given the corrosion I have had I suspect they are using cheap low quality treatment houses. At least half of my problems should of been detected prior to dispatch.
  5. pm sent to you so I can sent my 2018-2019 running costs for each night onsite.
  6. Site I am on wanted £120 to supply and fit a wifi booster. Which I am told by others, doesnt give a significant improvement. I purchased off ebay an ALFA R36 router and an ALFA UBDo-nt directional booster antennae both for £64 . Problem solved and good enough to stream should I want to.
  7. Just purchased a new Willerby Skye - and Joined this forum. HELLO to all. My question is in relation to gas consumption for heating purposes. 38 X 12 2 bedroom Willerby. What could I estimate / expect for (a) Summer (b) winter, gas consumption for heating. Answers, per week or per weekend are acceptable :-) I appreciate weather plays a part in that determination. regards
