Hi Steve,

Its on Wednesday 19th November------Monday 24th November 2014..... so cold one !

Would be good to see you there but it will be a long drive for you ..... good skies by all accounts though so hopefully worth it..

Theres a thread on the Starparties page about it.

Cheers,

Ian

Would have been good to see the new burger van Tich .... cant believe you have got this one for free!

Cheers

Yup it were a freebie Ian I had to travel to Haydock to get it but the condition of it is very good for 32 years old. I suppose being garaged for most of its life helped.

I think this one is more of a Kebab van lol.

Hopefully you'll get to see it at SGL next year (if you're coming down that is)

Will have to see about sgl10 as its a long drive of about 4 hrs. it does coincide with the eclipse I believe so might have some stuff on with the local club so will have to see.

Nice kebab van though, with one of each maybe you can breed them :)

Cheers

I've been looking at the Rapido line of caravans since your earlier posts, both folding and pop tops; they seem quite popular.

Yeah I know the models you're on about Mike although I just run a forum on the 3 models like the one I have as there's plenty of other folders that are similar to the other makes. The only reason why I started it was the owners club would tell you anything & another Rapido club what they did have about them was pretty sparse. Still learning more about them even now.

We have been considering a caravan for quite some time now, and have been looking for something with comfortable amenities, but also in a small / narrow package.

The ones I have are quite basic in terms of luxury, I'd like to think of them more as wooden tents. The problem with regular folding vans is they can be quite small & if you manage to get one that's big & roomy the footprint of it is big too & in some cases as wide as a regular caravan.
Pop tops can be pretty compact but some are thoughtfully laid out so might be worth a look.

I love my popup. She's a beast on the road with her hydrolic brakes but like a tardis inside.

Now it's the end or the general camping season there are a lot of new listings on the for sale sites, so we might get lucky and find a good rig at a fair price.  Unfortunately, most of the touring caravans we have been interested in have been too far away to be worth a look.

its coming along quite nicely dave,   had a cracking weekend last weekend and first time id done it without any leccy.  had a petrol cooker and petrol lamp and they worked great :)   ordered the powersupply, 2 sets of lights to rewire the trailer board as it decided to stop half way home (water had gotten it it seemed) got new pump ready to go in for the plumbing and just on the lookout for a small 3 - 5l hot water (preferably electric) caravan heater just for water. :)  and thinking i might buy a new awning for it,  found a nice one that claims to be up within 8 minuits...... as long as it works :)

unfortunatly the hole on the front corners gotten worse so iv just ordered the tear aid patch for it as iv given up with attempting to use a sewing awl so fingers crossed it will all be ready :)

I have managed to move Daniel and Stuart from 16 & 17 to 27 & 28 they are now in with the main group.

Just two pitches left in reserve, pitch 2 (hard standing) and 26 (grass). After they have gone the only pitches available will be what they have.

Tony, it looks like pitch 8 is still available ?
