    I broke my habitation and locker key, fortunately i had a spare. Timpsoms had to order the blank,said it was a special that they didn't keep ( fiat chasis) .

    Autotrail may be able to advise you where you could get them from?

    Regards

    Try a local locksmith/key cutter, cheapest option providing they have the blanks

    I'm surprised Timsons could not help, because we went to Timsons with the same request for our Bessy.

    The "key man" looked at our key and said "the Ta Ta key blank was identical, although the top half is much larger"

    10 minutes and £5.00 later we had our replacement, and it is easier to use with the larger "handle"

    any caravan shop....

    theres only about 3 combinations......give 'em the number on the key and chances are they'll have some in stock.:BigGrin:

    suppose it depends on the age of the van really...:Doh:

    Thanks for all your replies.

    Went on t'internet & chased down a company called SKS Keys & a very, very helpful chap called Dave Hobley :thumb:who even rang Timpsons in Grantham & sorted out a couple of spares. ( of course I was unable to buy the blanks myself). :BigGrin::BigGrin::BigGrin:
