Thanks MPG
We will have a look at your website tomorrow, would we need to flatbed our van to you in Essex? Oŕ could you comfortably work on adjusters at the roadside?

At the roadside would be Ok, I'm sure I have worked in worse places.

Just out of curiosity did this get sorted and if so what was the outcome?

It's been a week or two now, and several of us are waiting with bated breath... Any news on whether this simple check has been done? Or if not, what's occurring?

Hello curious people,

so to update you all Mark from Suffolk campers came up to look at the van for us and found that there is damage to a valve, its not startable and we will be flatbedding the van to ipswich later this week, for him to work on it in May when he is not so busy.

When he has the engine out he will be able to give us a more accurate reason as to what is wrong with our four wheeled friend.

Thanks for all your advice and support, its been wonderful,

safe journeys,

Tina
