  2. MONTYSA added a post in a topic Why do you change caravans   

    Hi
    Use to change as just liked new van.
    Wanted to change couple of years ago for Caravan with side ways bed, but looked at my Conqueror 630 LUX even being 15 years old at time looked immaculate so thought keep the £25,000 in bank.
    Purchased a Motor home now, but still got Caravan
    I use to buy New Caravans on HP when I was younger and at work.

    SINK OVER FLOW
    Can't believe that my Motor home sink can be fitted without over flow.
    Left tap on to fill sink for washing up as dished out dinner,sat down to eat meal wife said what's that noise. I had forgot to turn off tap, water running all down kitchen units and out door.
    Luck end kitchen and end door other wise hole van would have been full used up nearly all water in onboard tank.
    My Conqueror Caravan has over flow between sink and drainer.

    Hi
    Use separate table for awning strong plastic type, keep between front seats in van or car.  When not using awning I put table up in open by side of van, is strong and heavy enough not to blow away.
    Can't stand those flimsy camping tables in awning.

    Blue Methylated spirit
    Hi
    Nightmare, had problem with windout awning on Campervan the sealant between van and awning box was letting water pass mainly over door, so when entering and leaving got wet.  Spent couple of hours removing old sealant, then cleaned out gap with Meths before resealing. Big mistake I now have Blue streaks running down Van which have not fully gone after cleaning with White turps, brake clean solvent, heavy duty detergent, and caravan streak remover.
    Only thing starting to work is Silky Cream Cleaner with lots and lots of effort.
    So beware of Blue meths.
    Probably wouldn't have same problem with my Caravan as got Ally panels.

    Deposit should be none returnable and not transferable so you commit to go. Not oh I might go but transfer at later date.

    Should do same as C&CC have to put down deposit that would free up lots of might go bookings. Lots of CMC sites fully booked, but when you get to site spaces.

    I lean on my Van at front to help it around quicker and raise front with jockey wheel  to take weight of front dragged  axle. With yours fitted to front you can still help it around by pushing back of van, but will not be able to to take weight of dragged axle.
