    Most sites I use allocate pitches on booking so unless been there previously, I get what I'm given!

  2. samd added a post in a topic Are CLs pricing themselves out of the market?   

    Just had 7 nights near Sedgefield, Co Durham with a beautiful view over the meadows, 16 amp, water and grey waste on pitch for £14 per night or, in winter, £10 with no hookup.  Given that my regular haunt in Anglesey charges £35, it sounds OK but the £35 one does have showers and loos plus grounds in superb condition etc.

    Well be amazed if you wish but I have used them for my last two 'van purchases and am thoroughly pleased with their service.  Slightest problem with van sorted at my earliest convenience to my complete satisfaction.  Very pleasant and helpful staff.

    I have a LockNlevel air bag (£199 not £250!) but many people use the standard levellers and tie the two together at the correct distance apart so that the first wheel goes up and over the first ramp and then just continue until required height is reached.

    In middle of Dec, I tried to book a serviced pitch at Incleboro Fields for a week or so.  Fully booked for every weekend for the whole of 2018.

  7. samd added a post in a topic VERY FIRST TOW CAR   

    First for me was a Triumph 2.5PI - lovely engine; awful cooling; rhubarb PI system or rather the pump. It was also my first new car which I picked up ex-works in London (an arrangement for military) during a couple of days break from one of my tours in Northern Ireland.  I fitted an ammeter after a while (everyone did in those days!) but my poor connection came loose one night on a dark country lane - no fun!

    There are a number of firms who will replace your cushions (with or without new covers) and will allow you to choose 'firmness' of foam etc

    Two other advantages there. 
    The bags are big for their size!  Much better than, say Isabella which are a very tight fit.Try putting an 'ordinary' awning up to dry as quickly.

    Agreed - it's about time they learnt how to tow the line.

    Thanks David.  I was in the ex-VW Campsite in 1978/9 but can't find any record of it.  Nothing much just nostalgia raising its head!
