  1. nor added a post in a topic Away Again ?   

    This time of year we tend to use cmc sites as David says they do have large hard standings big enough for car and caravan or motor home . We are due to go to broadway next month excellent at this time of year again due to their hard standings .
    Dont  forget the c&cc need to cater for tents more than the cmc . This is my excuse for them having smaller hard standings .

    Ok thanks for that . We do have a Maplins quite near . 
    Would our reading lights be LEDs  or are they not standard on caravans . It’s 2016 model . 
    Either way I will ask when I next go to caravan dealers .

    Is this as easy as just buying new bulbs and putting them in ?
    Do the caravan dealers sell them ? 
    Thanks you I will give this a try .

    Lighting in van in evenings
    I find the lighting in the van during the evening or when it’s dark is not good enough to read, knit , sew , or for any sort of crafts or hobbies . This is even with reading lights on . 
    I have bought a lamp but again it’s not very bright .

    Insurance for Europe
    we shall be going to the Netherlands at April . We may go in July as well but not sure . Or even just with car / or even by train.
    is it worth insuring for the year or just our first trip we plan in April 
    does it cost a lot more for the year .

    Recently retired
    I have sadly retired from work although I still have a few hours work once a week in a supermarket . 
    Having always had to go away in school holidays I can now go anytime I like  hopefully a lot cheaper  . Do I still need to plan and book as before or can I just make my mind up and go . I always planned and booked my four trips away as soon as possible and the sites were always busy or  full . 
    I am thinking of booking a cl in August and the rest I thought,  we can maybe just go when we want. Do sites still get booked up out of school holidays is it still important to book .
    It is life changing  although I have booked for almost 3 weeks in April . Hoping nothing happens before then .
