  1. I wanted to order a few small parts from http://www. thealdecentre. co. uk today and am completely shocked at the outrageous shipping charges in mainland UK. (Maybe we could start a discussion about their prices in general but that's another story) If you order four small pipe clips priced at 87p each you are faced with a shipping charge of £19. 99. Too much? Order only ONE then and pay only £12. 99. These would easily fit in a first class envelope or the smallest Jiffy bag. In today's financial climate and where you can get tracked delivery services from the likes of Collect+ or MyHermes for as little as £2. 78 up to 1kg and under £10 for 15kg, it beggars disbelief that they can treat their customers with shameless contempt in this way. Not everyone wants overnight delivery. It's no good them coming up with the excuse that they get compensated in case of loss because the delivery firms I mentioned offer this for free or at minimal extra cost.
  2. Sorry, but the more I trawl through, and try searches in the gas threads the more confused I am getting. There certainly seems to be some negative comments about Calor but having been away from caravanning for some time I am so out of date. Anyway, my 'van came with a 6kg red propane cylinder and I am planning to "hire" another cylinder and "buy" the gas within. Is that right? The reason, if I am off grid and the gas runs out, I would like the luxury of switching over to another and can afford the extra weight. So, how much should I expect to pay for another full 6kg cylinder or is there a completely different path I should tread. Final thought, this year is UK local but next year we are hoping to spend several months in Spain. Thank you. Edit: fat finger typos
  3. I put the heating on yesterday on our caravan which is parked on the drive. The purpose to pre warm the fabric of the caravan prior to going away today. As we are only travelling about an hour, it will be a quick warm up when we get to the site. The Alde heating is set to give 22 deg day time and 16 deg overnight. As the supply is via a plug through meter, I can see that we have used 44Kwh in the 24 hour period. Not really surprised as its "Brass monkey" weather out there. It raises the point in my mind though that we caravanners can consume a lot of electricity when we plug in to the EHU on sites. At the reasonable 13. 09/Kwh cost we pay at home, that's £5. 76 which would be the cost to a CL or site operator to come out of our pitch fee.
  4. HI, Perhaps an emotive question, or maybe just self interest but I live on the beautiful Island of Ireland. The past two years I have travelled to France on holiday towing my caravan. This year we decided to stay on the Emerald Isle rather than travel abroad. Part of the reason for staying at home was the cost of ferry travel to both GB and/or France. This combined with Tesco's decision to reduce the exchange rate of vouchers from 4x to 3x, as well as Stena Line decision to cap the amount of Tesco vouchers that can be used for its crossings. Am I the only grouch on the island, or does anyone else feel that caravanners on the Emerald Isle are being discouraged from travelling to GB and/or France by excessive ferry costs? I have to say, having stayed at home this year and toured Co Kerry and Connemara (and seen the beauty the that is the Ring of Kerry), if we can strike a deal with the French that would allow us Islanders to import some of their weather I think we may be in a strong position to reduce our reliance on the Ferry companies. Just think of the extra money that could be spent on Guinness and Whiskey. .. Who do we need to talk to to get this sorted?
  5. I've said it before and I'm starting to bore myself but. ... I was planning the summer holiday this evening. I needed a two nighter in the cotswolds region to break up a trip to Devon. I opted for Broadway cc site. For two adults and one child they wanted £63 for two nights. I cancelled I and opted for a well recommended private site for £16 per night. I really don't know how the club arrives at these prices for members.
  6. Hi - Anyone out there able to give me a realistic view of annual cost I have on my list Storage - £300 Tracker - £150 annually ? Service - £150 Insurance - on a 6 berth 2009 valued around £13k ? no idea ? Those are the main things I can thing of . . but having never owned a caravan before I'd appreciate an owners perspective Thank you
  7. Dear Friends, I just signed the petition "Force EU to abandon MOT's for Caravans." and wanted to ask if you could add your name too. This campaign means a lot to me and the more support we can get behind it, the better chance we have of succeeding. You can read more and sign the petition here: https://you. 38degrees. org. uk/petitions/force-EU-to-abandon-mot-s-for-caravans P. S. Please can you also take a moment to share the petition with others? It's really easy - all you need to do is forward this email or share this link on Facebook or Twitter and other caravan forums. https://you. 38degrees. org. uk/petitions/force-EU-to-abandon-mot-s-for-caravans Also, please read the response from the Caravan Club here www. caravanclub. co. uk/advice-and-training/can-we-help/mots-for-caravans-faqs Thank you John B
  8. Hi, Having heard the advert on the radio for Shells new " super " fuel i checked today while filling up with normal diesel-- its nearly 8p a ltr more ! david
  9. I've just been a done a few checks on the cost of leaving the van permanently connected to the mains and was surprised at how much it can cost. I put the battery on charge using a 10amp Sterling smart charger since last using the van at the beginning of February. The battery was recharged in about 5 hours. Starting current from the mains (245volts where we are) was about 100mA = 24. 5 watts This dropped to 60mA and sat there continuously when the battery was fully charged = about 15watts. I then connected the van to the mains which drew 200mA continuously = about 45-50watts so it's not as efficient as a dedicated smart charger. Over a month of 31 days my smart charger on continuously would use 31x24x15 = 11kw @12pkw = £1. 32 a month whereas leaving the van on continuously would use 31x24x45 = 33. 5kw about £4 a month Just charging once a month for 12 hours would only cost a few pence and the battery would be better looked after.
  10. Hi all, I've signed up here with the intention of trying to learn more. I've recently had a yearning to have a caravan and try it out, not been since I was a young kid of about 8-10. we have recently moved house from a street parking situation to a detached with double drive and potential to store a not too big model on the front. There are only the 2 of us at the moment, and our mid size dog. We have a BMW 320d touring as a hopeful tow car. It's a shame there doesn't appear to be a way of just dipping your toes in to try it, I now you can start small, but it seems kind of one of those things you need to invest a bit in to try out. Is it feasible for a first timer to get up and running for around £2k? If so I can sell my motorbike to fund it. I'm facing a tough battle trying to talk my other half into it though, I think she's worried her about her image and how it might be perceived. We went camping last year in a borrowed tent and enjoyed it, but wanted a bit more comfort. So I need to look into the cost side first before trying to convince her more about how much it could be. The beginning of a new adventure! Am I righ in thinking there is more to caravanning than just a different accommodation, more of a change in state of mind? Obviously here are only the 2 of us, are caravanners generally very sociable? I look forward to hearing any advice, David
  11. Hi, I have a 2011 Lunar Delta Ti with the Alde heating system installed. It's great apart from the poor heat in the shower room. It has the looped towel rail and we have bled it. It does heat up but is inadequate IMO so much so that Lunar have changed it in the 2012 Delta to a small radiator. Three questions: Has anyone had the radiator retro fitted? How much was it? Does anyone know a fitter in south Cheshire who could do it? Thanks
