  1. Hello, I bought the caravan 1,5 years ago and at the moment of purchase the corners of the floor were fine, I inspected myself. There's no warranty, I can't get in touch with the seller any more. What's happening is that whenever there's heavy rainfall, both rear corners of the caravan get damp and soft from the outside. I have checked the walls, they are all dry, I am sure the water is not getting down there from the walls or from the inside of the caravan. It has to come from outside. They corners do dry out in about a week of sunshine, but sometimes it can rain for weeks on end which has resulted in mold appearing in the corners. As a temporary measure I've put a fan heater down under the seats to keep it dry and air circulating. So far so good, the inside floor is completely dry and even though it looks really ugly, the floor is still solid and could be fixed by killing the mold with a chemical and then using a sandpaper to get the color out. Finally I intend to apply a "base" using a brush that's meant for damp areas to prevent future rotting. But I can only do this when I've stopped the leak. Unfortunately I have no idea where the water is coming from!!! I have attached a few pictures, could someone with experience point me to the right direction? I have already checked all the rails and seams and there appear to be no visible holes or cracks in the silicone anywhere. Not on the roof, not on the walls. Nowhere. I'm completely lost right now It does appear to be a design flaw in the build itself, unless I'm missing something that only experienced caravan users know about? Could the water somehow come from inside the rails and flow directly into the floor? How is that even possible with no apparent cracks or holes anywhere (I've checked it thoroughly, roof and everything). Maybe someone knows more about the known flaws for my particular model so I can look for them. Also I forgot to mention that the sloped wall behind the bumper is always dry, the water is not getting there. It only gets in the corners and flows down from there. https://ibb. co/c3eyop https://ibb. co/kSHjTp https://ibb. co/iUTkZU https://ibb. co/j9tV19 https://ibb. co/k2HCEU https://ibb. co/eENCEU https://ibb. co/n9uQZU
  2. Anyone with experience of 8ft wide European or Scandinavian Touring Caravans? We have had several members suggest European models fair better than UK counterparts for disability. As a family who plan to travel a lot and not be static on one site for more than 28 days max we would value any helpful insights into what we could expect from extended width caravans. We have seen a few WEINBERG & also KNAUS Caravans for sale in the North of England, where we are currently based. We would plan to tour through France, Spain and possibly Germany at a later stage, so again would having a European/Scandi tourer be an advantage?
  3. I had a good time looking round the NEC on Weds, I always enjoy looking in the Euro vans and we are considering one for our next van. My general view was that there were some very innovative layouts (much more so than UK vans) and that perceived quality was good. Further observations below: Tabbert ("Pep") - bright external colours had the effect of making the van look budget, I suspect that will put a lot of people off. Internally a much nicer feel: light airy Weinsberg - only the small and huge on display. Very similar feel to a Sprite on the inside (i. e. not too basic, light, fairly traditional) Knaus - disappointed that the Lifestyle model dropped. Was told before the show that a new one is due but the people on the stand did not know that (I suspect they were just rented for the show). The other van's had a really good quality feel to them though, Hymer / Eriba - Disappointing. Orange feel to the interior reminded me of continental vans of old. Really expensive too. Hobby - very impressive. Lovely interiors that felt very well built. Very clever layouts, including a double bed that drops down from the ceiling. Odd gas hob that leaves you wondering where you drain your pots though. Strange pricing (i. e. hard to tell what justified the difference between the cheap ones and expensive ones). Definitely on our list for next van. Did anyone else have a look? Tempted? Thoughts?
  4. Ok, so we emerged from the Stena Hollandica thursday morning after a very pleasant and carm crossing overnight and made our way across Holland (via a dealer in Arnhem ) and onto the 2014 caravan salon the next morning. What a show ! And what a refreshing change from the UK examples here at the NEC twice a year, about 8 massive air conditioned halls, bright airy and clean. Most of the major manufactures had either a whole hall or at least half a hall to themselves. Each stand was a mix of motorhomes and caravans and at no point did we feel it was overcrowded or that were about to be pounced on by a dealer asking us the same quizzing question. The fellow visitors were soooo polite and we were treated with a hallo or guten tag or a conversation if they found out were were English on occasion. It was noticeable that the set up is so different, a manufacture sets his stall out, brings along 80% of the vans it offers, mainly the top sellers and it is a basic spec with a few choice extras. By visiting a stand you find out exactly what you want, there is usually a list of dealers and none of them hassle you . You can then either ask questions and confirm a price or just move onto another hall after being invited for a coffee and cake. The is Unlike the NEC where you find the same van over and over again on either a manufactures stand or a big dealers stand where the price varies by £££££ if it has a microwave or deluxe velour upholstery option fitted or not. You find yourself going backwards and forwards looking at the same van trying to workout what the difference is. Often finding the same van just renamed for a dealer with some localised name at the same price. It felt like we were in a car dealership or proper trade shows and made a refreshing change. I had identified 4 or 5 models that we wanted to take a look at, all with a fixed bed and nice seating area. These were: Klaus 450 FU, Adria 462PU, Dethcleffs C,Go and C,Trend 475 FR, Wiensburg 450FU, Burstner 450TS. All with this layout.
  5. Hi All, Thought i would set up a topic and send on my thoughts about what my wife and me are about to do next week, This is not meant to be a endless debate about the positives and negatives of Euro vans Vs English caravans as we have read and read all of this and have come to the conclusion that to get what we want we may have to explore elsewhere, and its a bit of a break from the norm and takes in a trip to Germany (sausage, sauce and frits here we come). We welcome any advice from anyone else who may have done something similar and at the end of the day we may not go ahead and buy anything. So, We have the Ferry booked (Stena via Harwich - Hook overnight) and we have managed to get some free tickets from a very helpful German Knaus Caravan dealer to get into the Caravan Salon Dusseldorf 2014. Why. ..... As a young couple with no kids, 1 dog and new to caravaning we have spent some time (while saving up a small kitty) spending many a weekend at various dealers and shows here in the UK. We have poaked and prodded all the basic/entry level Swifts (sprites), Elddis's, Adria's, Lunar (venus) and Baileys, second hand, new and nearly new and out of all of them the Adria has stood out a being bright, fresh pratical and modern, the rest to us (as 30 somethings) look a bit chinzy and yellow ( hard to explain that one but alot of caravans feel yellow !) and it apears that you are only afforded style and practical layouts if you pay a fair bit (16K +) and buy a 4x4 to tow it. Ideally i can only justify spending £8k to £13k on this new venture. We want a compact fixed bed but with a lounge area to spend the day in and eat at, we dont want to have to make up beds everynight (we are on holiday !) so the fixed bed is a must but it has to be under max 1300kg to be towed by my car. I drive a Volvo V60 Rdesign D2 Auto and love this car and cant find a reason to change to get a gas guzzling Brick on wheels 4x4 (not meant to offend 4x drivers, i just like an estate sorry or hatchback) and to be around 5-6m in length max, compact and light. .. As a couple it seams a 4 berth is the way forward to achive the above but cant imagine many families buying the 4 berths we have looked at unless they have only 1 child to be honest as room would be an issue. Our UK choices are as follows: Sprite 4 - Adria 432 PX TAY - Baily Orion 440 - Venus 4??? something. .... I will post again on our thoughts of these caravans if anyone is interested.
