Have you found a solution yet?

 

we have just purchased a 650/6 and having tried to make up the bunk beds have found that the headboards do not fit.

 

The cushions from the dinnette seats (4 pieces) are to wide for the near-side upper bunk (due to window blind - we believe that the blinds were not in place when Avondale decided on the cushion sizes)and only 3 of the 4 will fit, this leaves a gap. We have a copy of Avondales cushion sizes and bed make-up details and it states all four cushions are required as also stated in the owners manual.

 

We also noticed that the cushions for the offside lower bunk must be reversed due to upper bunk legs - as the cushions have a raised knee roll this now rolls the occupant of the bunk onto the floor!!!! Avondale say we are the only owners to complain about this.

 

We also have a lot more problems with our caravan and would not recommend this caravan to anyone. We are now seeking a replacement or refund from Avondale

NO NO NO. I pick up my Argente 650/6 next Friday,and it's been the van i've wanted for about 6 months. Had to do a lot of swapping and changing to get the money for it.

 

 

Please don't tell me i've bought a lemon? :(

I certainly hope not Lenny. A question was raised about the cushions of the 650-6 this morning and await a reply later today from another 650-6 owner. That's why I brought this topic out of the "Archive" section.

I'll keep you posted.

ATB,

My brother and I have just bought Argente 650-6s and we both have big problems with the berths at the rear of the caravans. The cushions simply do not fit the beds so we have complained both to our dealer and to Avondale. Avondale say that they have not heard of our problem and tried to fob us off!

 

We therefore both asked in writing for a full refund from our dealer (£31,500 for the two caravans) quoting the “sale of goods actâ€. Avondale are now willing to see us at their factory next Saturday to try and resolve the situation.

 

Has anyone else had a problem with the cushions at the rear and what response did Avondale give?

 

Please contact me by email at BCOALEY@AOL. COM

 

Many thanks,

Brian.

Been away for the first time in van this weekend, and to be honest i didnt have any problems with my bunks. At first i couldn't work them out, but as i turned the cushions round they all fitted. I made up all 4 bunks no problems.

Didn't try the double bed at rear as i wont be using that, only the bunks.
