New to Hymers. by Peter Turtill
Hi Folks, this is my first time here. I have been running a VW T4 and lately a VW T5 both with Cannons Forge full width beds but lately I have needed a bit more room and I have bought this Hymer 2.5 Fiat LHD and with no power steering. It has done the Km equivalent of 62K miles. http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2547/3852854647_f727e6e919_b.jpg What problems am I likely to face with it please? pete

Avtex tv power consuption on 12v !! by tick[_2_]
Avtex tv power consuption on 12v Looking for either a 10 inch or 15 inch tv for 12v use. Looking at the online Manuals neither show power consumption on 12v. I have been told by a Dealer he thinks the 10inch uses 15watt on 12v and the 15 inch uses 43watt. If this is correct my choice will be the 10inch. can anyone confirm this.

stolen bike in Calais by al
Hi all, to cut a long story short, I ended up in the quayside aire in Calais after arriving at calais too early for the return ferry crossing. during the night my bicycle was stolen off the back of the motorhome, which came as quite a surprise as i'd gone to bed late (3am) and awoken early and heard nothing untoward during the night. my guess is that the bike was stolen between 0300 and 0700...

It's hot in France by JTM
Just had a few days with 4 grandkids in France. They slept in a tent next to the van. Two sites with similar stuff for them to pass the time: t/ tennis, pool, footy, tennis courts etc. The kids much preferred the older, wooded, less neat site with acorns dropping onto the van and tent. 10 euro, (50%) more per night seemed a lot for less modern facilities but the extra shade was probably worth...

Autocruise Colt sale help please by Dudley Simons
Hi All My father in law recently died. He and his widow had an Iveco Ford Autocruise Colt (06) which they didn't get a lot of use out of due to his long term and ultimately terminal illness. she wants to sell this camper and would like to buy something smaller and more suited to her needs and that doesn't carry all the emotional baggage thats associated with this van.

Insurance for laid up van by Andrea & Peter Thomas
Hi, Does anyone know of an insurance policy for a laid up van, which will be locked in my garage for an extended period while we are in Australia. As there will be no "driving risk" I only need fire & theft insurance, but my insurer wants to continue charging me at full rate. Thanks

Views on Bongos by OG
Anyone got any views on Bongos as a viable Motorcaravan? I understand that they can be relatively expensive to run, but would be interested to know what people think of them in general. We've signed up with the bongofury site, but assume that they'll be generally 'pro' and may gloss over some of the negatives. And it's the negatives that you really need to know about before investing in...

Isuzu Elf by WolfWilf
Seen these as Japanese imports. My experience of Isuzu motors is that they're tough as old boots and worth a long-term punt. But as motorhomes, are the interior dimensions Japanese-sized? Has anyone any experience of them? Any advice or amusing comments appreciated -- WolfWilf Cardiff, UK

Tires by Dutchman[_2_]
My motorhome tires need changing, not thru use, but to pass the MOT. Side walls are slightly crazed. The point is do I spend a lot buying Motorhome tires or go for the normal van type. Thanks D......
