So true Carol. And next April (all being well) Martin will have taken his early retirement and we will be away a lot more.

Hi
Did you do your Sorn online ? Husband has been trying to do one for our car online and has not been successful because we want the Sorn to start from 1st Nov when we go away .They will only do it from the 1st of October when we still need the car . Is he doing something wrong ?

When I had a boat I found I didn't like fitting out time. I then realised the the cause of fitting out was laying up. I stopped laying the boat up for the winter. I have applied this same theory to caravans and now motorhomes. I use them all year round, there's nothing nicer than sitting up in bed with a tea looking out at the frost :sleep:

image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg Yes were the same. All year round.
It might be minus temps outside. But with the Webasto diesel heating were toasty warm inside.
We find plenty village pubs in out of the way places like this, ( up at Ralph's cross ) that let you stay overnight in the quiet car parks.
No hook up but we don't need it.
We've regular places we go in boggy rainy weather, icy snowy days, or cracking the flags days , that aren't campsites. As well as little sites that open year round too.
That's buster rolling around in the snow on the bottom picture. At sunset.

Yes I did it on line. It is SORNed from 1st November, well that is what it said on the web page but isn't confirmed on the email from them. As we won't be using again this year anyway the actual date doesn't matter to us. I had to use the BETA system as the standard system wasn't working.

I used the code from the renewal notice as the tax was due at the end of the month anyway. Not sure if that makes a difference. Otherwise put in the SORN on the 31st October or the last day you use the car.

it may be that the sorn doesnt kick in till the 1st of the month after you do it as tax isnt refunded till then im no expert on this so dont rely on this just my thoughts

Make sure your insurance company knows!! They can kick off big time if you don't inform them and you have to claim for anything.
