  1. Also from the Commercial vehicle show. I had a couple of questions to ask, again no real answers Firstly, If they do manage to ban IC engines does this mean the end of the hybrid as afterall they are just using a IC to drive a generator. Secondly, all of the manufacturers were pushing quite hard their Electric and / or Hybrid vehicles , Ford Transit, Peugeot, Citroen, Vauxhall , LDV. None of the vans I saw had more than about 150 miles range and required a 2hrs + charge time, so whilst these might be OK for a window cleaner or plumber etc to get from job to job in a local area , they will never be any use for shopping deliveries etc. A guy I was speaking to from one of the shopping delivery companies told me their vehicles worked about 16 hours/day and covered about 600 miles/day, with the first drop usually about 50 miles from the depot. So that means they would need to recharge 4 X each day and so in essence they would need double the vans and drivers. So does this also mean the end of the MH market, most manufacturers simply take a current N1 commercial and convert it to a MH , Im pretty sure most people want to drive 3-400 miles to their destination not have to stop half way there to recharge, and of course when they get to their site surely the expectation would be to recharge when on site , how many sites could accomodate that. Maybe the NCC have a plan. Of course, im playing Devils advocate here and being deliberately provocative, I know battery technology will improve, I know we will probably get to the stage where battery swapping is usual, but it would seem to me that there is an awful lot of infrastructure that needs to be changed/developed in order to keep pace with the political promises made, and I haven't seen anything that tells me how much that is going to cost me, have you? I heard a story yesterday of a guy who had bought a Second hand electric van/taxi (he couldnt afford a new one) he had also bought a battery warranty. A year in, the battery wont accept a charge, the dealer cant fix it and needs to charge over £1800 to remove the battery and send it away for diagnosis and rectification (even though the battery is covered) , which means that due to the age of the vehicle its not economically viable. Are we attempting to run before we can walk?
  2. Hey all, I'm new to the forum and have come here to peruse the threads for random information that might help me. But, I might as well reach out and ask for advice from members. I'm a bit of a loner. I'm a HGV driver by trade and run an e-commerce business on the side. The thought of buying a house and signing up to a 25 year mortgage, then paying constant council tax, heating and water bills and pretty much getting shafted by companies left right and centre, also that a house also cannot move, which means I'd be stuck in one place. To be honest, it makes me feel sick to my stomach. Is this what life has to be? The UK seems to be extremely expensive too. My insurance for my motorycle goes up each year, and is at £550. My car is the same and that goes up by about £100 per year, despite getting more no claims (I have 10 years now). Anyway, I've been looking at getting something that I can live in all year round, but still be able to travel. As a HGV driver, I work 4 days on and 4 days off. So if I want to go away to the EU, I can book 4 days off and basically get 12 days to travel and see places. I'm self employed anyway so can basically take as much time off as I want, I just won't get paid for it. When I am working, I can park my motorhome/caravan/whatever at the RDC for those 4 days, and then go somewhere else for my 4 days off. The RDC has a shower room and stuff that I can use, but I'd probably just use my own. If I just need somewhere to park it locally, I can park outside my mothers house. She lives on an unadopted road in the country and there's a huge amount of space. I know the farmer and he'd be fine with me parking in on his road. If travelling, I'd stay in laybys and the odd country road, but use camping parks every so often for a break if I stay in one place for a while. I was in the RAF for 9 years, and before I got married lived in on base block accommodation. I paid £36 a month all in for a room that was basically a bedroom, with a small en-suite. I loved it, it was all I needed and my friends were just down the corridor. I got married and then got a bitter divorce. Now as a HGV driver, working in a sole occupation, doing a degree and running this side e-commerce business, friends can be hard to find and time can be at a premium. ------ So, what are my options? I have all DVLA licences so can drive anything I want. I also have a 2015 Honda VFR1200X which I would want to take with me (or downsize to something lighter as its 300kg). This is so when I go to Europe I can go off on that. I've just booked a month in Corsica, and go in June. I'm going on the bike, but staying in AirBnB's. The accomodation all in has cost around £1,800, which isn't too bad for a month in summer. I want to go away a few times each year preferably to see places in Europe, Eastern Europe and Russia. ----- Other than that, space is nice but not essential. Heat can be provided by a cab heater, but I'm fine with the cold. Air con would be important as I might go somewhere hot, I think they run off butane bottles? ----- Here's what I've been looking at: Caravans Good bit of space, but needs another vehicle to tow it which is an additional cost. Would need air con and cab heater retrofitted most likely. Also, i'd essentially be towing almost dead weight. If I go somewhere with hills or loose surface such as gravel or ice, then it'd be harder but by no means impossible. On alibaba, these look cool: Of course the cost to import would be prohibitive. Then I can get a fifth wheel trailer: Lots of space, and pretty cool. But, I would have to get a pickup truck too which can be expensive in the UK. Demand seems high. Again, aircon and cab heater may need to be retrofitted. Lastly, and currently my favourite option, American RV: Totally self contained, probably has cab heater and aircon fitted. One tax and insurance bill. If it's left hand drive, I'd probably try to re-register it in France via a PO box and then not pay tax and only have to MOT it every 24 months, plus I could maybe get cheaper insurance over there that might extend to the UK. Engine charges batteries when moving. Rigid which makes it easier to reverse (no blind side). It would also be able to take a motorcycle on the back. Where as on a caravan or fifth wheel trailer, this adds a degree of instability to both. I'm not sure it's advisable to put a 300kg bike on the back of a standard caravan. In fact, just typing that makes me feel silly, so it's probably correct... I'd be absolutely at home in this RV. It's more than big enough, and I'd have the freedom to go wherever I want. Only downside is it'd be thirsty on diesel. If I can get hold of a petrol one I'd consider LPG'ing it which might remove the tax in the UK anyway. The other downside is that they are expensive. This one is £25,000 on eBay. When I get back from Corsica, I'd be paying my bike off, which is my only debt. I can either save up for a year or two, or get an RV on finance and just pay it monthly, although £25,000 is a fair size finance. I'm highly employable as a HGV driver so job security isn't a worry. The issue is getting finance on a vehicle from a private trader like from eBay. Of course, with no bills pretty much, I'd be able to save a fair bit of money and as I can't fill it with junk, I might actually be able to enjoy life. Maybe even save up for a large deposit and buy a house in the UK on a buy to let. So the tenants can pay the mortgage. Let them pay the mortgage and fees for me. I'd probably settle eventually, but I doubt it 'd be in the UK. Maybe Spain or in central europe. So that's my issue(s). I'd really appreciate any input that you may have. (PS, no wife or kids, I'm 33 and from Durham UK)

  7. I bought my Motorhome last September and it came with a 3 year warranty plan. It has just had it's habitation service and this has shown 25% damp in the rear bumper and 100% in two locker doors. My dealer submitted a warranty claim and the warranty company want the Motorhome stripped down prior to them inspecting it. My dealer says if they do this and the warranty company reject my claim then I will have to pay them for the labour costs (£1200 est.) I have told my dealer that I am not willing to do this. They are in the process of instructing the warranty company and I am awaiting the outcome. I am totally gutted as we had a nightmare with our last brand new caravan with damp issues and didn't expect this on a 2012 year Motorhome. If the warranty company refuse my claim have I any claim against the dealer? I don't suppose as I am the second owner that Elddis would be at all interested. The Motorhome has a full service history. Any advice would be great thanks. Cheers M
  8. Hi, everyone. We live in Pembrokeshire and have been caravanning for over 12 years, separately and then together. We have a 2012 Swift Conqueror 480, which we are selling and moving over into the world of motorhomes (bought a new Ford Transit Custom and having it converted to our own design). Dairy farmer hubby is a mountain biker and we also often travel with our 2 dogs, so need a garage/doggy area, as well as a fixed bed. I have Fibromyalgia and various other health issues, and when at home I enjoy looking after all of our animals (including 2 ponies and a donkey), crafting (papercraft, sewing, embroidery and needle felting), gardening, reading and watching tv. We both love F1 - went to Silverstone together for the first time this year - and obviously travelling. If anyone can advise on the best way to sell our caravan, please comment. Getting offers about £1k below the book price. Hubby has been keen to hang on and get a better possible price by selling privately, but I must admit I just want our drive back now!

  17. Hello there! No longer FutureCaravanning Magazine. ..... now it will be known as GroovyCaravanning Magazine! Our first issue will contain celebrity interviews with Frazer Hines (of Emmerdale and Dr Who fame) and Jordan Reyne, a New Zealand rock-chick musician who played Glastonbury this year and, er, stayed in a tent. In the mud. Should be an ace interview!! There will be features on Winter Caravanning, using your caravan/motorhome as a base for Hogmanay, the changes after ten years “out of the caravan loop”, a feature from a new family going to Portugal for 6 months, reviews, opinions, and of course, what will no-doubt become our famous ANTI-CLARKSON rant. Hope you’ll check it out. www. groovycaravanning. com New email: fcmag@hotmail. co. uk What does everybody think? Your advice and comments so far have been VERY helpful :-) The Editor.
