  1. Fairlight wood CMC site, peaceful lots of walking options + two local pubs and a lovely tea room. Weald view Pluckley CL site, lovely site with fabulous views, plenty of walks + pub just opposite the entrance.
  2. I always miss the obvious
  3. Thank you for all the replies. I did indeed order a valve for the aqua roll, this will be my preferred option, and as has been mentioned at least if there is a problem with the water supply we can still fill the kettle
  4. Excellent thank you for the reply’s, varied opinions which is always good as they are not overly expensive I’m going to edge my bets and order myself an aquaroll float, I’ll probably look a right wally trying to decide which to use maybe keep the wellies in the caravan as back up
  5. Hi, we have booked ourselves onto a serviced pitch for the first time question is what is the preferred option when connecting to the water supply ! The van came with a hose and direct fitting to the van eliminating the aquaroll, I’ve been looking and found you can buy just the float for the aquaroll at not a to ridiculous price, would this be a safer option than fitting directly into the van ? Everybody has different opinions, just thought I’d get some thoughts on it cheers mark
  6. I always run my finger under the tow hitch to feel pads are enclosing the tow ball
  7. 100% recommend Paul(Toureshine) booked him in to treat our new coachman to a polish and seal the paintwork, looked awesome when he finished. Paul’s knowledge and advice is second to none, following his advice will pay dividends mark
  8. We found a suitable bowl in an iron mongers (Webb’s of tenterden) tried a couple of local dealer beforehand with no joy
  9. Hi Gary, we took delivery of our 675 end of February and absolutely love it not needing to much of an excuse I’ve been out and checked to see if the coachman supplied waste container fits in the front locker, you can see by the picture that there is ample room alongside ramps/timber/tools and various other bits we have the power touch all wheel drive fitted, our controller is indeed fitted under the front seat with the red key accessed via the external battery box. Hope this helps towards your decision making
  10. So we finally managed to get away last weekend to say we are over the moon is an understatement, we had everything up and running, even cooking a lovely curry on the hob meatballs in the oven the shower is excellent, continuous hot water (well until the aqua roll runs out) just hit boost on the iNet before you want the shower Nothing fell off,everything worked, towed lovely, looked lovey, it is lovely looking forward to Easter so we can spend a week in it
  11. Just PX our van, left everything that it came with apart from the electric hook up lead, dealer said they supply new leads with all vans. .. new or secondhand.
  12. Whey hey, well it’s finally sitting on the drive collected Wednesday afternoon, handover was excellent and the van presented in a spotless condition looked a little less clean by the time it arrived home Really looking forward to the inaugural trip which hopefully will be in a few weeks time, until then we have the fun of finding homes for everything
  13. What an adventure, really enjoyed reading your account on your first encounter with caravaning (really gripping unlike the car ) seems you had everything under control, excellent and well done for not handing it back to the dealers and running a mile lol, all the very best with your future outings
  14. Thanks, I will look up the products, Usually use autogym or mquires on my cars. Benefits doing yourself 1, you know it’s done right 2, a good workout, 3, therapeutic + peace and quiet from the madhouse
