    ............. cleaning my filthy van.

    Had 2 days at caravan club site at Bowness in the lakes and was pitched under a tree (not my choice as it was only one avilable) had the canopy fully out as well, anyway rained very hard sun afternoon and as you all know trees, rain and vans do not go together. Never have I seen such a dirty van, the roof is thick with leaves and sap and god only knows what else. The sides are full of dirty yellow stains presumably from the sap and dont even ask about the back of the van or the top of the canopy. Worst thing is we got back at 8-30 this morning and I had to take it straight down to dealer for hab service so no time to clean it. They must think I am a right untidy fellow. Not a happy chap as I recently spent a full day cleaning and auto glym'ing it top to bottom, now have to do it all over again. :cry::cry::cry:

    Oh dear, that makes me feel much better. Got back early hours this morning from Weymouth and I have just cleaned out M/H ready to go back to storage place but thankfully it wasnt in the state yours seems to have got in. We were very lucky with the weather as its been fantastic all weekend and only when we got onto the M25 did it show signs of heavy rain.

    You never know your luck. We used to clean customers vans when in for service.

    I spent the evening in A&E, so thankfully I cleaned M/H this morning and it may not now be used for quite a while if our daughter has fractured her elbow.

    Hi IPS
    Sorry to hear about your troubles, don't they seem to attract all sorts of dirt and rubbish, just cleaned mine today after three months in Spain so I know what yours must have looked like, and to make matters worse we are going to Bowness on Monday for the week lol. Pete
