Pitching up anyone else make a pigs of it now and again

Most of the time, no problem, pull up, find a spot and pitch up. Job done.

Every now and again though I totally mess up, its not like this is even a new site to us. I drove in looked for a pitch and went for it, pulled the van up to where I wanted it and stopped.

1st mistake: the van was in a rut so I put a leveller under the wheel, got it nice and level and unhitched and the van rollled straight off it :lol:

Not to worry I will stick the mover on and run it up the ramp with that.

2nd mistake: The mover couldn't have been engaged both sides fully as the van went up it veared to the left so now I am off position.

I could go on and on but I won't. Suffice it to say that I didn't even need the leveller, all I really needed to do was pull the van forward a foot to get it out of the rut :lol: all that wine drinking time wasted.

Anyone else do this now and again or is it just me.

Hand on heart Mark, I have never made a hash of it. However, the wife cocks it up every time, but she is after all the Gov'nor!!!

Oh!! that's it, I'm cooking my own tea tonight!!

My dear boy, i make a pigs ear of it so often I'm not allowed to camp within a mile of a synagogue. All joshing aside, like so many things in life, when it starts to go wrong, it just gets worse. As always, just walk away for a minute or two, take a couple of deep breathes, then start afresh.

      After a couple of second hand vans we purchased our first new van around 1989 and we kept that for about 8/9 years. Nothing particularly wrong with it but we rather liked the idea of a proper onboard shower so part exchanged for a Sterling Europa which we kept for about 6 years. Next one was an Eccles Topaz, same layout but a bit more up market, again kept for about 6 years. Our next move was to a fixed bed van and purchased an Archway Rockingham which we kept for 4 year when we part exchanged for our now motorhome 6 years ago. We were very lucky that we had  very few issues with any of our new caravans over that 25 year period.  David
