Vehicle test - pleasant surprise by JTM
A couple of weeks ago I went to the testing station to book in my (French) van. I explained it was just 3 years (and a few weeks) old. In France they are not tested until 4 years!! So I have another twelve months to save up for it. John --

What I did on my holidays by OG
The group seems far too quiet, so here is a thread for anyone to join. For me, Scotland trip in July Dumfries and Galloway, Trossachs, Arisaig, 3 nights on Skye, 1 night on a Forestry Commission car park overlooking the Sound of Mull, 3 nights on Mull, 2 nights in Edinburgh. Our first extended holiday using the 'van' (a Wellhouse Leisure Granvia conversion). Very happy with everything, apart...

Questions from a newbie by Leigher
Hi, We used to have a caravan when the kids were living with us. They grew up and left and we resorted to more usual holidays. Now we want to try a two berth campervan. We recently visited NZ and found loads there, almost every one being rented by a Brit or other European. And it looked great. So we want to try it out for a week in October.

Gas at petrol stations by James Harris
Anyone know if there are different types of gas available at petrol stations and, if so, what they are? I was once told by a garage cashier that the gas they had wasn't suitable for my motorhome. He directed me to another garage where I was able to fill up. Looking round for some info on the topic I think the motorhome can fill up with LPG which is also available under a brand name of Autogas. ...

Swift Royale 5.9 tyre pressures? by Dave Smith
Hi does anybody have any details as to what the correct tyre pressure should be for a Swift Royale 5.9m (mine is a 1996 model). I have contacted Swift who referred me to a Fiat dealer. i have checked my Fiat handbook and label on the door and it states 5 bar (apx. 73 psi)but a tyre dealer thought this was too excessive.

We're on our 3rd chimney... by aiden
....even tho' we try and manoevre as carefully as possible. So, for this one we've (her idea) tightly tied a piece of string round the outlet in the roof and attached the other end to the chimney cap - that keeps coming off. We reckon by the time the gases from the fire get up there they'll be cool enough not to worry about the heat. Anyone else use this idea?

Netherlands Campervan Hire - Local Costs and tips? by CamperVanner
What does it cost to hire a campervan locally in the Netherlands? Are there plenty advertised at Amsterdam airport that you can just call up and not have to book ahead, what with the GFC and all? One with a shower and toilet that will accommodate two people comfortably but us usually advertised as a 4 berth, which is really rubbish if you want any comfort. Typical 2 to 2.5 Litre diesel rig, for...

Low Mileages by fwe
Motorhomes are supposed to have a low depreciation due to the "low annual mileages they cover" to quote one motorhome dealers site. However my dealer who I am in dispute with about an engine fault has provided the following statement " we are aware that low mileage in a vehicle can contribute to or exacerbate problems rather than reduce the likelihood of them occurring" So what does this do...

Keeping the water tank fresh by OG
Earlier in the year we filled the fresh water tank for a weekend camping. A couple of months later, we were away again, so I topped it up before we went, but the water came out slightly stale and tainted. Given that there's no drain cock on the tank other than through the tap into the bowl, what's the usual way of keeping the fresh water tank nice and clean inside?

Trip Computer MPG by hugh
2008 Peugeot Boxer based 2 berth low line motorcaravan. According to the trip computer it's returning 34/35 mpg. I was quite impressed with that - until I thought I'd do a manual check. Filled up did about 300 miles and filed up again. Did the maths and it came out at about 28 mpg. Done this twice, same result. Anyone got a similar van and if so what mpg do you get? -- hugh "Believe nothing....

Elecsol Carbon Fibre Batteries by hugh
Time to buy a new leisure battery and I spotted one of these in the local dealer's. I was a bit surprised that the assistant made no attempt to sell me one at all even though they had no other 110aHs in stock. Did a Google and found a few people very critical of Elecsol's after sales service when they came to make a claim under the 5 year warranty. Those who had had no need to make a...
