  1. Check her licence. Does it have B +E entitlement? If not then contact a local driving school ref a towing course and relevant test.

    Gas Level

    Fully agree but only if your a fairly heavy gas user. We spend the majority of our time off grid the bottle paid for itself in two years
  3. We had a Quest Rolli on our Series 7 Pageant. The only way we could get the roof properly tensioned was to fit a load of clamps down each end. Even then it would flap in the slightest wind. Admittedly fitting the front and sides was fairly straightforward. The roof could be rolled up and tucked away by one person but it didn't half make your arms ache! Biggest problem was finding damp in the side of the van. Turned out the constant weight on the awning rail had allowed moisture to seep down and cause the problem.
  4. Well for one we're proud of our National Flag and we're also proud of our County flag. At home we fly the George Cross for the same reason. If you don't like to see our National Flag being flown then ........
  5. Definitely! Depending on what the problem is and how its presented. Have done so plenty of times in the past and no doubt will in the future.
  6. Hands up, we're guilty! We fly the Union Jack and the Dorset County flags on separate poles with a third pole carrying a set of flashing lights. Why? Because we can and my long suffering wife, (she puts up with me bless her) likes them! What other reason do you need?
  7. Not going anywhere for the foreseeable future. All our trips we originally planned for this season have been scrapped. Just don't trust the powers that be in their handling of this situation. Can't help feeling the lifting is driven by panic over the economy rather than people's safety. We'd much rather give this season a miss and look after our health than rush out to a caravan site where you never know who or what you'll be mixing with. No offence intended 🤓
  8. All valid points but when their call operator tells you they are on the way & will be there shortly (& repeats the same mantra every time you try & chase them up) then the driver tells you she's the only one on the crew with a license to drive an outfit of that length & had only started work 30 minutes before it doesn't exactly fill you with confidence! Must admit though it was a nice truck & she was extremely helpful even stopping off at a dealership so I could grab the parts for the repairs.
  9. We were with Brittania for many years up until about 3 years ago when we switched to Mayday. We had suffered a breakdown on the A11 with the caravan on tow. After numerous phone calls to find out what was happening ref recovery the truck finally arrived after 3 hours. We had been constantly told the delay was due to traffic, even though we could see everything flowing freely, but the driver showed me her work sheet showing she had only been at work for 30 minutes. We were taken on to the site but it was constantly pointed out that they would not come back out to the same fault.
  10. Hi from a retired old fart who is often accused of being a grumpy old sod. Been caravaning off and on since the late 70's. Even more so since retirement. Off grid CL's, CS's are our normal 1st choice and hoping to try a few THS's in the future.
