Re: Mot

I would just use a garage you trust, easier said than done I know but the one I use have no real previous knowledge of T25s but everyone at the place loves my van so all take an interest in it. Had a couple of issues that they've resolved, they even enjoyed doing it. Your van should pass or not wher...

Window fitting - Cambridge

Re: hook up cable

I bought a 10m one when we 1st got the van & soon realised I needed a longer one. Not all hook up points are that close so 25m would be best. You can never have too much!

Re: Engine Trouble

I have a 1.9dg as well. A while back I parked up after work & everything was fine....got in it next morning & turned the key, nothing. No sign of life apart from the lights on the dash, battery was good & all it ended up being was the ignition coil. Replaced it and all good, only cost me...

The Lakes it is.....

Just booked a week at Eskdale Campsite near Boot in June. Last minute change of heart from the Peaks on the recommendation of a friend. 3 pubs nearby which welcome dogs so we can walk Alfie's legs off during the day & he can sleep by our feet in the pub whilst we rehydrate by night! Pretty excit...

Re: Lakes or Peaks??

Thanks for the info. Distance to travel isn't a worry but we don't want it to be too busy so we're going for the Peaks.

Just a matter of finding that perfect campsite!
