I am now the owner of this super campervan, I will be blogging about the places I go in her, yes I think it is a girl but I have to think of a name, any ideas?
My first trip was to Kingsdown camping park near Deal, not very far but was good to get to know how everything worked and what I had to do. My first purchase is going to be a reversing camera for the dashboard as it is really hard to see how much room you have at the back especially with the bike rack on there. I am still deciding whether I should take that off as I don’t think I will be riding a bike again but the grandchildren might.
I had my first night away of this year, mainly to clean tanks and make sure everything was working. Jodie and Alfie came with me, we went to a site near where we live and hooked up to electric. We had a hard standing as the fields are so full of water still but they do say next week will be nice so hopefully everything will dry out a bit.
Little Satmar holiday park is situated in the clifftop village of Capel-le-Ferne, just outside Folkestone, and caters for approximately 50 touring pitches including 3 hard standing areas. Many of the pitches have electric hook up available and there are two toilet & shower blocks on the park – the block within the touring field also includes a kitchen wash area and a chemical disposal area. There is a park reception which incorporates a small shop and tourist information, open daily between 8:30am and 5:30pm. Next to the reception is a small laundry area.
Everything worked fine on the mains electric but we had nothing from the leisure battery so I took it back to the garage that put the new battery on and he got it all working but I need to get a new ring for one of the terminal plugs. I was so relieved it was just that as had a lot of purchases already this year for the van.
It was great spending time with Jodie and Alfie, I am so pleased we got everything sorted as now I can go anywhere. Next week I will take the cat away and see what she thinks about it.
I went to the camping shop and filled my spare gas bottle up and he told me the name of someone who can fit my reversing camera. The TV did not work as said no signal so hopefully it is just the aerial and the man can fix that as well.
I will have a weekend writing, chilling and a bit of gardening if the weather is nice and also think about where I am going next week. I don’t think I will go too far the first time with the cat but I think she is going to be fine.
April 14th 2018 – Peaches had her first trip out in the camper, we went to Deal and had a cup tea on the sea front. She spent a long time having a good look around then finding a good spot she went to sleep.
