I stand corrected TT and please accept my sincere apologies. Well done in spotting that the Pete actually has his van on Windy Harbour.

Hope this helps a bit?
i suppose it depends on how far you want to go.....Rhyl, Towyn, Talacre are probably the nearest for you to get to.... the other places Barmouth and the others over on the west side will add another couple of hours to your journey....

like Angela says, have a look on the thread about 'sites allowing bring-ons'..

as a matter of interest, have you just paid your site fees for 2013??

No we haven't paid next seasons site fees as yet. The fees have shot up, and we don't think Windy harbour is good value anymore, hence our decision to look into relocating.

Pete. From an industry perspective partingtons run a good company.. but im amazed that a park suffering from empty pitches are raising site fees.... a box of chocolates is no good half full. If your atlas is not double glazed or heated, or perhaps a 10' wide model i would sell to a trader and find another van on a park you want. I say this as there are some amazing deals out there at the minute and if your van falls into the above categories its not worth paying good money to relocate. If its a nice double glazed heated unit then ok consider moving. You may well have seen my lorries on windy harbour i regularly sell them clean used caravans!! All the best with the move what model is your van exactly???

Thanks for the advice. Off the top of my head its an Atlas Everglade. Its a 28' 2 bedroom model, kept in good condition I'd say.

How much roughly would we be looking at if I sold and started afresh?

Price up transportation costs as well, it may not be as expensive to move as you think if you are happy with your caravan, otherwise you could lose thousands.

Weigh up all your options.

If you need any help, try looking in the advertise your services section, or ask one of the mods, we're only too happy to find info for you
