Dear Fellow Motorhomers,
After the summer break August is the month we start touring again with groups taking off to the Czech Republic, Slovakia & Hungary, Croatia, the Rhine in Flames and Sicily over the next few weeks.
It was also take-off time at the Bristol Balloon Fiesta motorhome show last weekend, where on Saturday morning over 100 balloons launched off. It was the first year the fiesta featured a motorhome show and whilst being a small show it was enjoyed by those attending.

Also now ready for launch is our Southern Norway 2019 tour. This is a completely new tour, fully researched by our Tour Directors throughout this summer, who personally visited many campsites, restaurants and places of interest to select only the best for the tour. With a lot of inclusive content this tour of Norway will provide a real feel of the country, and in addition offers the prospect of extending your holiday with the add-on of an extra weeks stay in Northern Denmark at the end. Full details of the tour are available on our website
where bookings are now possible.

For many people who have bought a new motorhome over the last few years they will be aware that new motorhomes are now generally supplied without a spare wheel. Travelling without a spare wheel is not an acceptable situation for many people and they have chosen to purchased a spare to keep with their motorhome. If you have done this, or are thinking about doing so, and your motorhome is Fiat based with 16-inch wheels be aware, Fiat have for the last couple of years been using two different 16-inch wheels. These wheels have a slightly different stud configuration so they will only fit the correct van and are not transferable. Recently we have come across two Fiat motorhomes with 16-inch wheels that are carrying a spare of the wrong configuration to fit their vehicle, one such motorhome having been supplied new by the manufacturer with the incorrect spare wheel. If you have recently purchased a spare 16-inch wheel, or had one supplied with your motorhome, it could be worth checking to ensure yours fits. Additional information on the subject can be found at www.tyremen.co.uk/guide/motorhome-spare-wheel
Remember all our tours can be viewed on our website and feel free to contact us should there be anything you would like to ask at any stage, we are always happy to assist.
Enjoy the remainder of the summer and we look forward to taking you and your motorhome to great places soon.
