I don't blame her! They do things differently. They rely on 'family' to do a lot of the nursing and feeding. When my wife was in Marbella Hospital she was in a lot of pain. The doctors, on several occasions told my daughters and me that we must get my wife out of bed and sitting up in a chair. Because of her pain, she always refused and got distressed. Consequently she developed pneumonia and it killed her. We were left feeling that we were the cause of her death....................Had she been in a Brit hospital, doctor would have given his instructions to ward sister and fifteen minutes later a couple of burly auxiliaries would have got the job done.
My advice is to go for it. I also lost my wife in 2011. She died whilst we were away in Spain and I came home without her. My immediate action was to get rid of the caravan and all the equipment - which I did, but then began to realize that life still has to go on. Nine months later I decided to take up caravanning again. I've had no regrets.
Mine also was revoked last year as I had implants in both eyes, having had procedures for cataracts. The information sheets given to me when I left hospital told me it was a criminal offence not to inform the DVLA about the op. As I am now 85, I had a long, worrying time as I waited for a decision from Swansea.. I mentioned the worry to my doctor. She referred to her computer, turned to me and said not to worry. From that I assumed the DVLA was guided by doctors' recommendation.
I bent a leg on my caravan steps as I packed up to leave my site at the weekend. A repair seemed unreliable so I ordered a new step from Towsure yesterday morning. It's just arrived. Brilliant service.
I'm taking my van to Charmouth for a week next weekend and meeting up with my two daughters and grandson who will be staying nearby in a cottage. One daughter has already got the Tesco vouchers for Abbotsbury. It's years since I've been and must say I was shocked when I saw how the admission prices have shot up. Also a visit to Portland Castle is on the to-do list.
In my view cutting out any timber will only weaken further the remainder of the surrounding floor. You'll end up with a new piece bolted to the chassis members and the remainder of the floor relying on the joint for its load-bearing. I would cut a piece of 9mm marine ply so that it fits snugly up to the steel work then bond it using the same adhesive as is used for floor separation. Coat both surfaces well, put the piece in place and stick a jack under it till dry.
They start at around 60K for the smallest but then they start the add ons. 4grand shipment from USA for s start. Then if you want a mover they fit a Reich model at £1750 extra. Leather is 3 or 4K more. Goodness knows how much for the chandeliers....
No!............ But when a company has the monopoly on new sales, a Sales Director isn't going to miss a chance to show off his over-priced caravans................. sorry! "trailers",,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, to a captive and gullible audience.
