This is our caravan. Eldis broadway 470/2
We had a quick practice at putting the awning up. I didnt want to get to the camp site and try and do this with people looking at us, whilst we attempted it. And more importantly that putting me off. I needed to know we could do it and that all of the pieces are there.
There is a tear that has been repaired and a few pin holes in the awning. We will need to address this. Rather make do and mend. If we decide caravaning is for us, we may in the future, get a full length awning. Although this one is perfectly good enough in size as we wont be sleeping it in (the sleeping section is in there, we just wont add it), we will probably use it to put our camping table and chairs. These 2 items we have used every year when camping, they work really well for us and we see no need to change this.
New blind pulls have replaced the old broken and cracked ones, this makes it look a lot more tidy. All of the fly screens are in good condition, even the door fly screen is whole and not torn anywhere. We have seen a lot of caravans where there arent fly screens at all or are poor quality and broken. All of the blinds work. (These are all really good points for us as we werent looking for a caravan to fix up, we need it for a few holidays and for us to stay in when viewing houses in Cornwall.)
The curtains are faded, we could change these, but I am holding this back for if we want to carry on after this summer. I do hope we love it, but we have to be realistic that we may not like it. Hence the caravan was quite cheap and only a small one. Heck if the new house we buy, doesnt have room for an office, this may have to go into the garden for this purpose. When the idiot builders were here doing the kitchen, it was used as an office and it worked really well! It would be cheaper than a home office cabin in the garden!!!
Now we just need to name it!
