Hello All, Whilst towing our pride and joy back to the yard the other week a tin of beans fell out of the locker above the worktop in the kitchen and has dented the work-surface, and chipped the wood. The only way I can think of repairing it is to buy some Formica laminate and stick it on top of the original laminate. Has anyone on here ever used Formica laminate? if so how hard was it to cut and how hard was it to stick on top of the original laminate. Or can anyone think of any better ways to repair the worktops. All opinions appreciated. thanks in advance, Sam
We love our new van - it's doing a great job for the family and the months/years spent agonising over layout seem to have paid off (for now!). The only thing that lets it down is the build in the kitchen. I've had to screw back in the cutlery drawer runners and add tiny bolts to ensure the drawer stays on it's runners. We've also now got an oven that has come loose due to retaining screws working free. We don't drive over excessively bumpy roads and we have shock absorbers fitted. We've done about 3000 miles in the van this year but we didn't have these type of issues on our much older Sterling that we traded in. Finally, the hob knobs! These started to fall off the Thetford unit almost immediately. We now only have three in place. I'll get these replaced by the dealer, but unless the design has changed I can only see this happening again and again. Have others suffered the same kind of issues? What sort of fixes have you employed?
I love my coffee but it has to be a proper cup and most campsites don't have a resident Barista or a Starbucks (Costa, yuck!, thats another discussion!) So, I spent the weekend online seeing what was out there as I find the common cafetiere very clumsy and to be honest the taste isn't that good. Also most pod type machines are good but again bulky for smaller vans' like ours and also can draw a fair amount of amperage!. Then I came across the Aerobie AeroPress coffee maker, highly recommended by professional baristas and it even features a good review with Which?. The price. . £19. 99! and that includes filters and everything you need to get going. Today this little device arrived via secure delivery from the UK supplier based in Portsmouth and it was so simple to use. I was sceptical as to the cup of coffee it produced but like the reviews I was amazed and felt I should pass this information on to any coffee lover out there looking for a low cost but quality way of making their favourite brew.
