    Hi Graham
    Could you find out what the beep and blue arrow is for and get rid of it. Out of the 20 lorry nd should know. I think it is warning of a road on left coming up.s a bit over the top.

    Hi
    Have found a internet site called Motor home wild camping. It's got map with all stopovers. Not tried any yet as still setting up Campervan the way I want it. Have got in touch with Pub on Norfolk Broads they said happy to stay in there car park which is right on the broads over looking moorings at Ranworth.

    Hi
    I normally stay with CC and C&CC.
    I PAID £201 to Insure my Campervan full com and with no, no claims bonuses amazed our cheap to Insure a Campervan. CC cheaper thanC&CC. Could have gotten it from some unknown to me insurance company on net for £160. Value £10000
    Paid £104 to Insure my Caravan with C&CC a little cheaper than CC. Value £5825.
    Do prefer Club insurance as never had any problems with claims they make it easy.

    Hi
    Think you are just unlucky.
    But after that much unluck I would move on to another make.
    Have a Seat Alhambra, VW group, at moment no problems after one year. Had two Ford S Max before only had one problem that was the Sony Radio. But that was probably just good luck.

    Thanks I'll order some. Have already made polystyrene firm again by making small holes and injecting Captains Tollys into it with a syringe over a few days and drying with blow heater.
    Do you reckon it will be ok to do now or wait in till weather gets warmer in spring.

    Hi
    was thinking on what you have said but using Soudaseal RV 61 Sealants/Adhesive which I have already. But what you are suggesting sounds good it does say that the glue you are recommending expands is there anything to what out for with it expanding.  Did use expanding foam at Home when making partitioning wall and it made Bulge in wall when expanded.

    Hi 
    Its not the floor , it's the rear panel of Van looked at floor stuff and son has used it.  It is a bit to runny for vertical job I think.

    Delamination
    Hi
    Campervan I have recently purchased 1998 Swift Royale 590. Has some old damp area in N/S/R corner did not notice when purchased should have looked better.  Anyway was not to worried, as it was only area of about 2ftx6" a bit soft but completely dry. But now I have found delamination on rear of van about 2ftx6" of the outer skin.
    I am thinking of drilling some holes and squirting in some glue but what would be best glue to glue and seal back panel.  I know I need solvent free because of the polystyrene, but so many glues not sure what to use.
    Has anyone got any suggestions.
    Or am I going about this wrong. I don't want to strip Van to bits.

    E111 work well in Spain when wife was taken ill 6days in, at no cost must say the first thing they asked for was the card.
    I bet in this country we yes treat them.
    The Spanish Hospital was on par with our fantastic NHS Hospitals.

    Graham are you saying I should lie to Xbody.
    It seems that you can only put measurements in when you choose Lorry.  If you choose Bus it does not give you the opposition.
