    Hello Everyone My name is Boris, and I am a marketing graduated who loves caravanning and camping since I was a child. Few months ago I was for a quick holiday in Norway. I saw exciting stuff there in the tourism industry and because of that recently I have done some researches on UK and US, RV industry (Recreational Vehicle industry- motorhomes, campervans, caravans). Also studies in the field of hospitality, especially in the territories of Norway and Finland and hotels mainly visited by UK and US people. In these countries, (Norway and Finland) they use several very innovative approac
  3. Hi, I had never "caravanned", or even slept in a tent until we took a 2 week motorhome holiday in Canada last year - absolutely loved it. Will the current crisis we had decoded there would be no holiday abroad this year and possibly next so have take the plunge and put a deposit down on a 2011 Coachman Pastiche 520/4. We already have a suitable tow car - a VW Tiguan and although we have never caravanned I have 40 years experience towing 3 ton livestock trailers with various 4x4's. Looking forward to getting out and about and becoming part of the community
  4. Well we went to the final Lawns Caravan Show (after 44 years) on Saturday. We decided to swap our 10 month old VIP 520, after the way Dometic handled our recent issues and the pathetic Dometic Loo. We had to take the cost hit on the chin, after a lengthy discussion with the sales guy and his boss, we finally got a "deal" where we actually lost 30% 😫 but feel in the long run now we only have to put up with Dometic Fridge. Dealer is going to confirm delivery date next week. But they did say un-officially could be 1st or 2nd week on Oct. 🙏
  5. Morning all! So we have been chewing through some options for our next Van purchase. After a great deal of cyber window shopping and a few dealer visit's it's become apparent that if we were to up the budget a touch to around £16/£17k then you are knocking on the door of New 2019 Vans such as the Bailey Phoenix (entry level?). For the same money you can buy a Pegasus (midrange?) 2016/2017 for example. What are people thoughts about the benefits of buying New albeit the entry model against buying a 2/3 year old Van from further up the range? Many thanks for a
  6. Hi all! The first thing is to apologize for my English, it's not very good, I know I have to improve I am Sandra from Spain. I am a Biologist and I love traveling to nature, so I decided to buy my dear Piper 1400L. I write in this forum to obtain information about my caravan and to obtain the documentation to be able to legally circulate in Spain. Thank you very much!
  7. Hello, I'm new to the forum so shoot me down if I do something wrong or have posted in the wrong section. I'm used to forums so can handle the criticism. I'm interested in collecting information on the condition these brand new caravans are sold in. You find that you buy a van and then after a week of ownership you have found a number of defects. The question is: When you bought your new caravan how many defects did it come with?
  8. Hello to everyone on the site. ... Been thinking about a caravan for as long as I can remember and I really would like to take the plunge and buy a starter van soon. I’m not bothered about anything extravagant for a start, but something that is all in one piece and isn’t full of damp or rot would be good. ... I’m literally bewildered by the amount of caravans that are available on the market, but thinking that a 2/3 berth might be ok for initial short adventures. Plenty of other questions I have too such as is my car suitable to pull a van (2004 Astra Mk4 5 door hat
  9. Hello everyone, After some serious research we've just bought a caravan! I (Fiona) have been camping in a tent for 20 years, but my husband Trevor doesn't fancy it. .. he's a lot older than me, and I can understand it. We are in Orkney, which narrows down the choice a lot. We looked at a fairly new Bailey, but it was a four berth and too heavy for our car, and quite pricey. This Sterling Eccles Amber (2004) came up for sale 12 miles from us, and so we have bought it. It's very clean inside, has never had pets or smokers in it and they've kept it heated al
  10. Hello Caravan Talk members. My name is Chris, and I'm a second year 6th Form student who aims to start university in September, living at home in the progress. I also enjoy exploring new places however rarely get the chance to go on holiday with family. My grandparents owned a caravan (I remember it clearly, 2006 Lunar Solaris Limited Edition) that they had to sell 6 years ago to fund an extension on their bungalow and also due to ever decreasing mobility. This brought back memories of joy from my childhood, and made me realise that a cheap caravan would be ideal for someone like me.
  11. Hi, I'm Terry and live in Essex. Looking forward to using the forum, best wishes 👍👍
  12. Hello all, I'm new to the forum and new to caravanning. We have just purchased a Bailey Senator Camargue, a 1998 model for myself and my young family. I don't plan to tour with it too much and we have a seasonal pitch already booked. We haven't collected the caravan as of yet. Please be gentle, I am a novice so knowledge is very limited. Matt
  13. Picked up out new to us Van. Rained all the way home. So Sunday was a day of cleaning.
  14. Thank you for adding me, I'm new to the caravan world and got a lot to learn .
  15. Hi, my name is Andy! I'm 21 and I was registered homeless for a few years, since I was 16 (this forced me to drop my college education) and in november 2014, I managed to secure this flat which is disastrously expensive. Unfortunately, because of my current education, I can't seem to find a job (I've been searching for a job for years too even whilst homeless, living in hostels or sofa surfing) paying enough to cover the cost of rent and bills and cost of living also and I want to start my own business. I've decided I need to do two things, One of which is move out of Leicester and
  16. Hi all, Just saying hello to the group. My wife and I have not yet bought our caravan but plan to do so this autum and embark on our first trip early next year.
  17. We are thinking about buying a 2015 Clubman fixed bed. We think it has a great design. Very impressed. We could have upgraded our mark 1 Valencia for a mark 3 at a very good PX but would much prefer the Lunar. Question is. As Lunar is still a conventional construction. Is it out of date? Will we suffer from damp? Will there be high depreciation? John
  18. Collecting our new van on Thursday afternoon and the dealers business manager has called today to go through a Demands and Needs, Notification and Declaration Report. Has anyone else had this before collection? he has even asked me to take my driving licence to prove I can tow, and also the dealer will do a vehicle check against the caravan. I have never experienced this in over 30+ years of buying and towing. I said I hope my car will tow it as it is 100Kgs heavier than the new one and I have been towing with it for nearly 2 years now. I am not saying it is a bad idea just not u
  19. Hi Guys, If you have recently ordered a brand new Bailey Pegasus GT65 Verona, please will you let me know the amount of time it took for the caravan to be delivered to the dealer from Baileys. I ordered a caravan from the dealer on the 31st October 2014, according to the dealer Baileys started building the caravan yesterday. Is over 16 weeks the norm or am I being taken for a ride? Many thanks in advance Mark
  20. Hello Campers! We began our holidaying in tents (10 years in tents!) and almost went down the campervan route, but two days before we went to buy one we were given an old 2 berth caravan that eventually, as it was weak walled with damp, we upgraded to a Elddis Xplore 304. Now hubby won't even contemplate a camper van and refuses to go in a tent! I thought we had caravanning sussed, but as with everything, have found that there is still more to learn. I think I might find the answers here!
  21. Hello everyone, just starting up with the caravan lifestyle, No doubt ill have loads of questions which you guys have heard before, to which i send apologies, I would be very gratefully for any information regarding to buying our first caravan, Budget of around £3,000. We drive a BMW which has a weight of 1580KG there is myself, wife and little one, i have looked a few but unsure of the size, we would prefer a larger one, as we will have family stay over when we go away. Well i will no doubt speak to some of you in the future Jess
  22. Hi, we are researching caravans and hoping to look at some this weekend. Any advice on choosing a starter 2 berth caravan would be appreciated. We are going to look at an Abbey Expression 470 2 berth 2003, Swift Challenger 480 SE 2002 and Bailey Pageant Monarch Series 6 2008. We would be using it for touring, so would like it to be light. I was wondering if the upholstery on the older models would still be comfortable for sleeping. Also, would people recommend buying from a dealer rather than private? Thanks in advance. GH
  23. New To Caravaning (Totally)
  24. I have noticed that some dealers have started to put the word 'trade' after the model of the caravan. Yet they are advertising and selling to the public and offering a warrentee. Why. John
  25. Just saying hello, been caravaning over 21 years. Just started to go on holiday rallies we done two last year and will be doing them again. May see any of you down Wareham tomorrow. Battery charged and the solar panel ready. ..
