Well, again, its' ages since Ive ubdated my blog and we have been having such a good time -
we entertained over 70 funsters by holding a New Years Meet at Uttoxeter races. Such fun and I truly mean such fun.
The bad weather however gave me a chance to check out our new screen cover and to test our winterisation. It was cold, with temps dipping to about -8 and the new screens worked perfectly. The screen cover the whole of the front of the van wrapping it up like a baby. It certainly made a difference to the van and we hope it will help further on our upcoming ski trip just next week.
I have also opted to fit new tyres. Although the can is coming up 5 years old, teh tyres on the van were made in week 10 of 2006 meaning they are in fact 7 years old nearly. Not wanting to take the risk I opted to replace them. A hard job choosing motorhome tyres, many will opt for just ordinary load rated van tyres, but the thing is a nightmare. I after speaking to suppliers and to so called experts decided I would go with camping car tyres. More expensive by some margin but, inflatable to a much higher pressure van the van tyres. The previous tyres I fitted on my last van were Avon AV9's which were great tyres but my new van is much heavier and their tech department said they would not be appropriate.
I have therefore opted to go with some Continental Vanco Camper tyres. I will let you know how I get on in the future.
