  1. If you 'Browse Forums' you will find some references to problems with Bailey motorhomes which seem to be design/build faults reported by others on the forum.
  2. We shall continue with long weekends (Fri-Sat-Sun) weather permitting but mostly to destinations we know well and know what to expect when we arrive. In just 2 hours we can be on our favourite quiet beaches in mid Wales . Local folklore dictates ''A change is as good as a rest'' To watch & listen to the waves and beachcombe for seashells on a very quiet beach is the best therapy against Covid I can think of. The tourists are welcome to the hotspots any day.
  3. We have found that the 3 & 4* campsites prove to be quieter and better spaced out especially without specific marked pitches allowing a wider choice where to pitch away from others. Facilities however are still a factor but manageable with the correct precautions. It is difficult to know what is best but recent scientific predictions are the virus will not be clear for 2 years, too long to totally avoid the possible risks I would suggest. The 'R' factor is again rising according to the news and another lockdown a possibility in the future, time to get out and about before it
  4. Despite every effort to remain positive I have to admit that Jayne & I have finally conceded that 2020 is pretty much over with for trips other than our occasional weekends in Wales. On the plus side the MH is gleaming inside and out, just looks good on the drive.
  5. Could it be Tywyn for that Ice Cream?? Famous Ice Cream factory there. That's where we were just outside the town (our 2nd home we call it) We normally park on the Neptune Caravan Park but not accepting tourers this year due to pandemic.
  6. I think the effects of Covid and our changeable weather reflects the lack of activity on the forum. We did manage a long weekend earlier in the month on a campsite in Wales during the hot weather but other plans for August have been put on hold until the current weather improves. Our plans for the France Trip to Saint Tropez on 1st Sept is also cancelled thanks to Covid with the need to wear masks in ever increasing regions throughout France, it was looking positive when plans were made but spikes have changed all that. Our alternatives were either Cornwall or Snowdonia but partner J
  7. Good news all round Jeff, I can definately confirm that bikers are very good business, just get the word out there. Regards
  8. Hi Jeff, I spend a lot of time in Wales with the motorhome but visiting Rhayader & Elan Valley your location could be a good option. Have noted your details for future reference. Early days yet but Electric Hook-up would possibly widen the appeal to many. Good luck with the venture.
  9. You can buy Sat Nav's specific to motorhomes due to size of vehicle but priced accordingly, we use a TomTom Go with Europe Maps installed and have found it more than satisfactory. All the major manufactorers produce similar designs but I do prefer TomTom. Apart from UK we have used our device in Spain & France without concerns.
  10. We are actually going to France on 1st Sept to Saint Tropez, I will ring our chosen site 2 days prior to leaving rather than pre-book. I always have several back-ups whenever we travel and optional destinations. As for Sunelia they may well be in financial difficulties which makes any booking an increased risk, there is more than one way to lose a deposit.
  11. Anyone planning a campsite booking mostly in France be aware that if it is part of the Sunelia Group Parent Company who operate 4&5* sites under a variety of names will ask for a 30% deposit with booking but unlike guarantee's given in the Terms & Conditions should you cancel the booking within the allowed time no amount of E Mails requesting a refund will be forthcoming. I cancelled 27th March and 14 E Mails later including 4 requests by them for the same Bank Details (all supplied) as of current date no refund or even response. Sunelia may be victim of Covid-19 but so are h
  12. I have just entered this item number and it say's no matches found???
  13. Well it looks like we are being allowed out to campsites soon in our motorhomes, providing we stay in England of course if we are intent on the UK. Hopefully Wales will follow suit very soon after. Have made plans for South of France in early September for a couple of weeks but holding back on actual booking until nearer the time. Will be giving the MH a good wash & wax in preperation and re-fitting the scooter rack.
  14. I often wonder about automotive designers, do they actually drive the vehicles they create? I doubt there is a style of vehicle that does not have simple but annoying 'faults' designed to spoil the driving experience, cars especially and as Gordon points out motorhomes are not exempt. I know a few people with Chausson conversions and mostly the feedback is positive but best to follow the golden rule and have a good test drive in whatever your thinking of buying to ensure everything is to your liking.
  15. If it's too good to be true, etc etc etc A bit fishy is an understatement.
