Ahh could be a deal breaker that lol. Will have to visit the site and see how things are laid out.

During the summer (when the site is busy), some people have to park a long way away from their van. In some places you can drive to your van to unload (if the grass is dry and there are no bollards in the way), but it can be a right pain in the backside unloading your car, particulary on a Friday night in winter when it is raining. Some vans are 5 or 6 rows away from the road. You hear so many peeps moan about it on our site.
I think you would have to see the site to see what i mean muppetchops, i have had my van since july last year and have never had to park away from my van. the site is never crammed anyway, as its a owners site you dont tend to get really busy periods anyway. we dont have rows of vans on the site and each area has lots of parking.

I know Bungle. Everyone says what a nice site yours is. Trouble is we just don't get time to have a look when we are down for just the weekend. Last weekend, our friends came down from your old site on Saturday afternoon and on Sunday morning we spent a few hours snouting around their site and him in doors was measuring up their van to do skirting on it. It annoys me that we can't do our own skirt on our site - but that is the same with all the big shark companies lol. We are down for a full week at Easter so I dare say we will get chance to have a look at your site then!

hhhmmmm maybe i will do it myself......
Don't your site provide slabs? We can ask for them, and they'll provide 12 for free which we can lay ourselves....
