  1. Freedom micro caravans come to mind. There are quite a few around on auto trader and ebay. The Basecamp is lovely with a 200 porch awning on the rear. Your main problem is that they are fairly new so have not depreciated enough for your budget.
  2. From the FAQ page of Club Care Insurance: Do I need to be a member of The Camping and Caravanning Club to get a caravan insurance quote? No, you do not need to be a member of The Club to get a quotation from our insurance arm Club Care Insurance. However being a member you will receive exclusive policy benefits across our range of insurance products. Also, you will benefit from our wide range of premium discounts as well as be part of any promotions that occur through the year.
  3. I know of one local bus/coach company who's drivers have to pass a breathalyser every time before taking a vehicle out of the yard, they used to sub contract National Express. Some of their coaches have a built in system but other drivers have to take a manual test. From my employers point of view, all drivers are subject to random breath tests.
  4. July 28th 2018 if anybody bothered to read his post above. He PX'ed the caravan for a motorhome. Mind you, since last year he may have come to his senses and come back to a caravan.
  5. What makes you so sure Griff is joking ?????
  6. Hopeless golfer, the last post before yours is from June 2013 so I think they might have gone.
  7. Well that all seems to be very normal, but now you will have to deal with a different beast...... ..The Service department. The Service department do not run to your schedule, you have to fit in with theirs. as a new van owner they will not be making money from you so they don't have to be nice.
  8. Would it not have been cheaper to buy shower caps ?? We are on our 3rd van in 8 years. The first, a 4 berth, was down sized after 4 years. The second lasted 3 years when it was replaced by our current van last year. Both the first and second van had expensive adaptions done because of HER's disability (both bought used), the current one we have not had to alter as it suits our current needs. (Brand new last year)
  9. No Andy, in fact quite the opposite. Caravan Club Ltd state quite clearly that "this is not an insurance policy" To my mind, the fact that they have laid off the risk to someone else is neither here nor there, it is still only a discretionary cover policy.
  10. Durbanite, who are you sueing now ?? Similar, our online quote from the C&CC also came out higher than our current renewal quote from Safeguard.
  11. https://www.caravanclub.co.uk/club-together/discussions/club-Talk/club-products-services/caravan-club-non-insurance-policy/ Yet another thread started on the Caravan Club website. Started by Easy T (also a poster on here) raising the same concerns that I have.
  12. No, because I don't personally know anyone who has purchased it. Having read the small print which states that claims will only be paid at the discretion of the Caravan Club directors, meaning they have no legal obligation to pay out claims, we decided that it is not for us. Besides, HER's finance agreement says that the caravan must be fully insured. However, they do still provide insurance for motorhomes, campervans, cars and other insurance products. There was a discussion about this on their website. (and possibly the C&CC website)
  13. Sorry to have to tell you this Trek, but the Caravan Club no longer provide caravan insurance. What you have is "Caravan Cover", a discretionary scheme where the directors decide if they will meet claims. The small print states "this is not an insurance policy"
  14. I remember when they used to do HGV parking practice in Mansfield rugby Club car park. Another local Notts training company are Diamond Training out at Newark on Trent. I know they do weekends because they have been getting in the way all weekend whilst staying up that way. Not sure they are aware of towing speed limits though, as one passed us whilst we were doing 69 solo on the A1 today.
