Current Leak by J.G.
Hi. Can anyone help us with a problem with our Fiat Ducato based motor caravan? After repeated unexplained flat batteries, I used an ampmeter which showed that the current leak was caused by the horn and the clock. While the van is stationary on my drive I have removed the appropriate fuse,but I have no idea what to do next to remedy the situation. Any help would be much appreciated. Les &...

Cabin v Habitation Air Con by hugh
It seems dealers are now pushing 12v/240V roof mounted air con units rather than cab air con. The argument is that these units will cool the whole vehicle even when on the move. I wonder if anyone has any experience of them and how effective they are when travelling. -- hugh Reply to address is valid at the time of posting

Channel Ferry/ Tunnel booking query - First time with Mazda Bongocampervan by robthill
We are planning to take a Mazda Bongo (height 2.09m) on the Dover / Calais route leaving 29th September coming back round about 20th October. As we will be coming down from Scotland and being not certain how long it will take, is it OK not to book a crossing but wait till we get to Dover? In connection with a wait at Dover, can anyone please recommend a campsite not too far from the...

1995 Eldis by [email protected]
I am thinking of buying a 1995 Eldis motorcaravan. It has done 56,000, looks in nice condition and the asking price is just under 2k. Does anyone have any views on an Eldis of this age and mileage? Many thanks in advance for any help.

bath when touring Europe? by David Smith
We have just enjoyed 3 weeks touring Germany and France. I am trying to encourage her to go for longer but it would help if she could take a bath every so often rather than a shower. We predominantly stay on Stellplatz, Aires or wild camp but will visit campsites as and when required. Has anybody any suggestions if any places are likely to have baths whilst touring Europe (Spain, France,...

Good place in the UK to get parts or get work done on an oldmotorhome by James Harris
Can anyone recommend a good company that will carry out work on a motorhome? I am thinking of things like getting a bike rack fitted, getting a cracked shower tray replaced etc. Or is it better to do those things at home? If so is there a good source of parts - like bike racks and shower trays and other things? By the way I am looking at an old motorhome - circa 15 to 20 years old, not a new...

Opinions on Citroen C25 as motorhome base by James Harris
I've seen many comments - positive ones - on the Fiat Ducato as a base for a motorhome but none about the Citroen C25. If anyone knows .... Are they as good as Fiat Ducato-based? What are their turbo diesel engines like - especially the 2500? Noisy? Temperamental? I'm thinking of models between roughly 1990 and 1995.

Freesat Receiver by Dystopia[_2_]
I purchased a Goodmans GFSAT200H Freesat top box to use in my campervan. I chose this particular receiver because it operates off 12v but it was faulty and I returned it to Curry's from whom I had purchased it. I wanted a replacement but they did not have one and none of their other models would work off 12 v. Has anyone got a Freesat receiver that operates on 12v or seen one. If so will you...

Floor Space for Large Dog by Tim and Rachel Pennick
Hi All, I'm a new arrival on the shores of this newsgroup, and I'd be grateful for some advice. My wife and I bought a 1989 "Landsleeper" Motorhome last year. We very much like the design of the layout of the interior as we have a large German Shepherd dog, and the van has a wide area of floor space behind the dining area where the dog can lie without us having to step over...

Re low emisions zone. by Chap.
Re the emission zone. A friend of mine converts small vans in to campers, mainly used vans with new conversions and he has seen a big rise in people bringing petrol vans rather than diesel vans for conversions. He also said that the price of older coachbuilts are starting to rise and nom compliant diesels drop. Does this mean that there are going to be lots of cheap bargain diesel campers...

Additional fuel tank by Eric[_5_]
VW LT35 I wish to add a small fuel tank to this madel (deisel). The existing tank has a flow and return line, so that excess pumped fuel is returned to the tank. Can someone advise what proportion of pumped fuel is returned? I wish to add a 7 litre tank - but for simplicity to connect only a flow pipe - excedss fuel being returned to the existing tank.

France passion 2008 by Andy R
I've just returned from a trip trying to use some of the sites in the France Passion guide 2008 with a complete lack of success. None of the sites we tried had the logo visible and when we did find the owners to say they were unhelpful would be an understatement. I had wondered why a farmer would want motorhomes on his land for no definate reward and I think my experience confirms my...

Tour Europe in Motorcaravan by Dennis[_2_]
I live in the US (Mobile, AL) and have been trying to get to Europe for years and I think it may happen next year. I just turned 65 and will most likely be traveling alone. I've never been out of the US or Canada and as you can imagine I have some questions and concerns. Is there a site that helps people like myself tour Europe in a motorcaravan on a limited budget? I'll need help buying a used...
