  1. I stayed there this summer, It's a really nice site. Very modern and clean facilities, there is a restaurant on site which opens 3 days a week and you can take food away if you wish. There is a small site shop selling a good selection of food and basic caravan accessories. The site is over 3 levels separated by trees so which ever area you are in it never feels busy, there is also an adults only area with around 20 pitches on it. There is practically no TV reception but the fully serviced pitches do offer a coax aerial point on the bollards. The road leading to the site is extremely narrow. It only services the site so you don't have to worry about meeting another caravan on the way down as there are strict leaving and arrival times. There is also a separate field offering a caravan and motorhome cl site of 5 fully serviced pitches separated by tall hedges with their own facilities block. Hope this helps Dan.
  2. Have you also tested for damp above the window?
  3. If you go for a petrol turbo with an engine size of 1.4 or 1.5 then it will be producing similar if not more torque than what you currently have and more bhp, Maximum torque will also come in at around 2000 revs so not to far off behaving like a diesel Just be aware that petrol engines are lighter in weight than diesels and subsequently in a smaller car this can affect the maximum nose weight that can be applied to the car by the caravan so check that before purchasing
  4. That will make it difficult to hitch up. That's the issue where the ground has been made up. It's not been compacted down. I was on a building site today nearing completion. As soon as you stood on the turf that had been laid making up the front gardens and verges you sank a good couple of inches if not more so the same issue that you have.
  5. Just seen you have a new insignia, same as me and the mirrors I mention above fit. Stevan - unfortunately your method does not work on the new insignia because of the angle of the edge of the mirror casing going up to the mirror glass
  6. The only mirrors I could find to fit my car which has pointy angled mirrors were ring clear view as found in Halfords https://www.halfords.com/camping-leisure/trailers-towing/trailer-accessories/ring-clearview-towing-mirror?cm_mmc=Google+PLA-_-Trailers+and+Towing-_-Trailer+Accessories-_-197742&istCompanyId=b8708c57-7a02-4cf6-b2c0-dc36b54a327e&istFeedId=62b447cf-331e-4fec-a47a-9985ff72d404&istItemId=xtqlqr&istBid=tztw&_$ja=tsid:94971|cid:1537737345|agid:58263523643|tid:pla-370468427451|crid:291898457276|nw:g|rnd:12261202768578776626|dvc:m|adp:1o3|mt:|loc:9046218&gclid=CjwKCAjwusrtBRBmEiwAGBPgEwXBH3YvDIUTU92OaqbivhPhrP8QBpIs_A5nZCkuBoHy4qo_DxZUzRoCo4EQAvD_BwE
  7. Could someone have tried to pinch it maybe. They opened the valve not knowing that the whole thing would not deflate.
  8. I understand why they rebranded but I don't think it was necessary as people knew that they accepted motorhomes. Perhaps they should be called the caravan and motorhome and tent club
  9. I have used the nemesis. It's extremely easy to put on and take off, only takes seconds to do both. I have had a couple of occasions over the last couple of years where the only position the bar of the nemesis which slides through the wheel, could only be slid through the top of the wheel. Due to the position of the caravan on my drive with the reciever bolt being in the wrong place This makes fitting impossible as the bar hits the chassis. I hope this is makes sense, I did get a discount for using it.
  10. Watch out for weight watchers (the dvsa testing station you mention) ive seen caravans in there before parked up probably on prohibition.
  11. You will find that pretty well all caravan porch awnings will fit your caravan. Porch awnings usually fit awning rail heights of 230cm to 250cm which is pretty standard for most caravans but the only way to be sure is to measure your awning rail height
  12. Last year I arrived on site and filled the aquaroll plugged in the hose and after a couple of minutes started to wonder why the pump was running without any taps being turned on. I suddenly realised the shower was running, it wouldn't have mattered but for all our bedding stored in the shower cubicle.
  13. I also never touch those buttons.. everything is left on, I've never had any issues, having said that I plug the caravan in that home so no need to ever switch anything off
  14. The round plastic surround along with the metal grill is just clipped on revealing the speaker underneath Use something plastic so you don't damage anything and work your way around the edge of the speaker leavering it off. Once off you will see the speaker just screwed into position Don't try to remove the metal grill from the plastic surround by itself. It will just bend out of shape.
  15. I believe the floor studs are fitted by the dealer and not at the factory. I have them in my carpet but not on the floor
