  1. That's a novel (if expensive) approach Christine. I've seen the sticker below on some MHs, and a similar one with 60mph for both dual carriageways and motorways those towing caravans.
  2. Welcome to Motorhome Talk. I'm sorry that I cannot answer your question myself but have you asked Elddis (Explorer group, now owned by Hymer) or the Elddis owners' club?
  3. Our MH has a raised floor both under the cab area and in the rear bedroom. The one at the front is a pain, as the cab seats are set several inches higher than the main floor, leaving feet dangling in fresh air when the seats are rotated to face the rear. The rear raised floor does carry services below but as there is plenty of headroom in the centre section of the MH, it would not need an Einstein to raise that section to match the two ends of the vehicle. I suppose that at least if I trip over the bedroom step I can only fall onto a bed! The thought however of tripping at the front and c
  4. I agree David. The two things that initially drew me to them was the fact that they were on a Ford base and had auto transmission, and while I wasn't so keen on the price I would have considered them except for the number of trip hazards on the floor and the payload restriction. Why is it, I wonder, that MH designers cannot 'design in' a level floor for the length of many motorhomes? Gordon.
  5. For those interested here's a 40 minute video introduction to the new Bailey Adamo range of motorhomes.
  6. Just responding to your, "hello" . . . It's good to have you onboard Motorhome Talk. I hope you'll find it as useful as many find Caravan Talk to be. Gordon.
  7. We have a small mains inverter but even with the full 15A available from the 12V cigarette lighter according to the specification it only outputs 0.63A max (150W) at mains voltage. Suffice to say I cannot recall the last time it was used as we never wild camp and always opt for EHU when on site. Whilst driving we can run the onboard generator to power up the mains sockets if needed. Sorry not to be of more help.
  8. Sorry Paul, unfortunately I don't have a link now but try Googling something like, "12V sbc led lamps" or look on eBay. That is the style I used but I don't know if they would be compatible with the fittings that Bailey put in their Autograph 79-4. Gordon.
  9. Just keeping our heads down at the moment and not travelling at all if possible. I filled the Volvo up yesterday in the rain - last time it needed fuel was in February ! We have friends in Yorkshire that we had planned to meet this summer with the MH but alas, circumstances prevented that (and many other planned trips away) this year. Once a degree of normality returns, you never know, we may be allowed to make safe use of our investments again . . . ATB, Gordon.
  10. I've not replaced the complete fittings but I have used replacement LEDs in our outfit. I made the mistake of initially buying the cheapest and they did not last, however we have a set of daylight LEDs currently over the kitchen area in our MH that have been there for a number of years and are still going strong. We chose to revert to filament lamps for the lounge area and just accept the extra load on the battery. Hope that helps, Gordon.
  11. Are you able to fit warm-white LEDs in place of what is there? Don't go too dim though or the "tripple trip" floor steps may become an issue
  12. Sadly I have a rather lower opinion of the DVLA and I am still waiting for a decision on a problem they caused back in February. Covid or no Covid, it is simply common courtesy to respond, if only by telephone or email, yet despite several tracked letters, emails and phone calls to them, I am still waiting! Grrr!
  13. Thanks very much for letting us know of your safe return Rob. That is good to read. Gordon.
