    • Username and other important upgrade information   09/23/2015

      Please note that the forum is still upgrading will be for most of the night I think,therefore you may find it slow at times, looking different etc etc. This will straighten out (he hopes) as the upgrade continues. One of the big changes is that usernames and display names will change.   At the moment you can have a username and display name for example you can have a username of joeblogsy and a display name of Joe Blogs.   After the upgrade we will only have usernames.   For some this won't make any difference at all but there are a fair few of you that have different display names., many of which I have changed for people for various reasons.   If, after the upgrade you notice your forum name isn't right please just send me a PM with your desired username.   You may also find you have been logged out, if this happens and you cannot remember your original forum details, please email me at mark@touringandtenting or open a support ticket by

  1. Only the best parts for the caravan that can get through it all: full galvanised tunnel boot, checker plate wheel spats, Euro double glazed S4 windows, moulded stepwell and front and rear alu panels.
    In my opinion, the only way to unleash a caravan’s off-road power is to use the most robust of materials. 
     

  2. Cycle the UK with the Caravan Club in News


    By markf, posted
    The UK has some of the best cycling routes around from the Camel Trail in Cornwall to the family friendly, Swansea bike path along the Welsh coast. The Caravan Club, champions of the great outdoors, has rounded up some of the best to encourage people to take to the saddle this spring.
    Camel trail in Cornwall: The Camel trail in Cornwall is a beautiful, 18 mile traffic free trail which is perfect for cyclists. It meanders through the Cornish Countryside along a disused railway line and travels between Wenford through to the fishing port at Padstow.  A stay at the Camelford Caravan Club Site is a 30 minute drive from Wenford. There are some amazing vineyards along the way and a chance to sample some local wine. Priced from £15.50 based on two adults per pitch, per night in a caravan or motorhome
    The Lancaster Loop: This 17 mile cycle trail circles the historic city of Lancaster, along the banks of the river Lune to Glasson Dock and then makes its way back around to the city centre through the countryside. There are pubs and cafes along the way as well as the 13th century Lancaster Castle. A stay at the Long Barn Certificated Location Caravan Club Site is located on the Asthon Hall Estate within easy reach of Lancaster. Certificated Location sites are smaller, privately owned five-van only sites – ideal for quieter breaks away.  Priced from £10 based on two adults per pitch, per night in a caravan or motorhome
    Bristol to Bath: The cycle path traces the 13 mile route from Bristol’s port to the heart of Bath and is a lovely family friendly trail along a disused railway. The Hayfields Certificated Location Caravan Club Site is located in Mangotsfield in Bristol and is within walking distance of the local pub. Watersports and golf are also both available within five miles of the site. Priced from £17.50 based on two adults per pitch, per night in a caravan or motorhome
    Swansea Bike Path: A stunning coastal cycle route which has fantastic views across to Mumbles Head and the start of the Gower Peninsula. The route starts at Swansea Marina, follows the path of the coastline to the Victorian seaside town along the route of the former Mumbles railway. The Gowerton Caravan Club Site is located in nearby Gowerton in Swansea and is the perfect place to visit the surrounding areas, beaches and Swansea. Priced from £17.10 based on two adults per pitch, per night in a caravan or motorhome

  6. Hi
    The Ultraheat electrical heater in my van has stopped responding to the thermostat. It used switch on and off correctly but now just stays on. Yes, could be worse, but I'd like to fix it. I've replaced the control knob switch and thermostat combo control, but the problem remains. Any ideas, or preferably, experience with the same problem?
  7. The Camping and Caravanning Club has joined forces with Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome magazines to support the industry-leading annual Caravan and Motorhome Owner Satisfaction surveys.
    They welcome feedback from anyone who has bought, owned and toured in a new or used caravan or motorhome since 1 January 2013. The surveys are now sponsored by Club Care Insurance, the insurance provider to The Camping and Caravanning Club.
    Club members and other caravan and motorhome enthusiasts are invited to complete the 2017 surveys, with the results announced in January 2017, ready to help campers plan for the season ahead. Both surveys close on 16 October 2016.
    The results will also be published in full in the March 2017 issue of Practical Caravan and April 2017 issue of Practical Motorhome, in the Club’s own February magazine and online at each of the three partners’ websites.
    The surveys are long established and their results are highly regarded by caravanners, motorcaravanners, dealers and manufacturers.
    The Motorhome Owner Satisfaction Survey was launched in 2004, and the Caravan version followed in 2012. Over the years, tens of thousands of caravan and motorhome owners have reported in depth on their experiences of buying, owning and using their outfit.
    The results are essential reading for anyone considering buying a caravan or motorhome, new or used, whether from a dealer or private sale. The information and league tables of the best performing brands and dealers will be made available to all. It also provides valuable data for caravan and motorhome manufacturers to make use of when planning and improving their own products. 
    Robert Louden MBE, the Club’s Director General, said: “The Club is delighted to join forces with Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome for the 2017 Owner Satisfaction Surveys. The results will help holidaymakers buy smarter in future, and help manufacturers improve the quality and reliability of their products. Along with our existing Tent Owner Satisfaction Survey, they will add to the authoritative advice we’re able to provide members on all forms of camping.”
    Alastair Clements, Group editor of Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome, said: “For more than a decade, the Owner Satisfaction Surveys have been helping consumers to buy better, and pushing up quality across the board. And its results can be trusted because they are based entirely on the opinions and experience of real caravanners and motorcaravanners, in the real world. We are delighted to join forces with The Camping and Caravanning Club to make these awards the best in the business.”
    Nigel Coppen, Client Director at Club Care Insurance, said: “We’re delighted to extend sponsorship of the Club’s Tent Owner Satisfaction Survey to caravans and motorhomes – the results will help people research their next purchase with confidence, and peace of mind in the brands they choose.
    “We at Club Care are passionate about providing campers with peace of mind when they’re relaxing on holiday, and that’s why Club Care Insurance products are designed by tent, caravan and motorhome enthusiasts for like-minded people.”

  9. I am looking for a caravan type that I saw some years ago?
    It was a 2/4 berth with two wide -long - single beds each side of the van right up to the back wall.
    Between the beds at the back I think thre was a wardrobe or dressing table -- not sure
    The toilet was on the left at the end of the bed in the centre of the van over the single axle,  and at the end of the other bed was the shower. 
    There was an arrangement of doors whic allowed the rear bedroom to be isolated from the front end and when that door was closed you had a twin room with on suite. The shower door and toilet door  could  als be closed for individual privacy. 
    The front end was conventional two seats and dining table to make into a double if required. 
    In this area also was the cooker on one side and on the other sink and fridge etc.
    I dont remember the maker but it could have been European ??  Adria?
    Wasn't very heavy either  --- any one any ideas

  10. OK So you think you have towing power in News


    By markf, posted
    Ok so your campsite is the on other side, would you?
    Just go for itHave a long hard think about itCall the RAC and pretend you broke down and let them do itTurn round and stay someone elseTowing a caravan I think coming back down would be worse
    Source
     
    Spanning a mile across Lake Nakaumi, the concrete bridge links the cities of Matsue and Sakaiminato. The bridge rises very sharply so that ships can pass underneath. Great for boats, maybe not so great for nervous drivers. In addition to the steep inclines and declines, motorists also have to navigate their way through several twists and turns before they can reach the other side of the bridge.

  17. Had a great weekend away in Godmanchester, today though was a tad on the windy side.
    Very nice campsite with good company, what more can you ask for.



  18. Had to change my friction pads (Alko) and the sides are easy enough but when I got to the top one how do you do that?
    Took the rubber/plastic cover off the nose, undone the front screw and back screw but that was as far as I got, couldn't get the back one out?

  22. Hi guys, Looking for some advice on a couple of points.
    1 - looking to travel a lot when i eventually get my caravan. Not always going to be able to stop in caravan sites. If i get a few solar panels for the top and a couple of extra batteries, could I hook it all up together? And how many batteries and solar panels would i need to run say a heater, tv, laptop, fridge/freezer and phone? 
    2 - Is there a way of having waste/water/gas plugged in onboard so i can still use toilet/kitchen on the move and empty when I get to a caravan site? 
    3 - cooking for 1, how long would a smaller gas bottle last if there were 3 meals a day cooked? 
    All replies would be greatly appreciated.
    Cheers,
