The caravan & decking certainly go well together!

Think I may need some sort of soft stair lights at the rear of my van
Your decking looks lovely and really sets off your van. I have uploaded some photos of my new decking for you to see as well in my gallery.

Thanks, I was looking at upvc cleaner on eBay, but a good old Brillo will save the day.

Tunnyloyal your decking looks well, what a fantastic view of the sunset!
I am told we will get some fab sunset view from our van, that's if the rain goes away!
Going at the weekend as given sunshine for a few days
Like you boat slip way!

Your kitchen layout is similar to ours.

Personally I don't like the plastic decks, we used a local joiner who built our wooden deck, we haven't stained it either,I apply 'wet and forget' at the beginning and end of the season and it gets no algae/ moss.

A couple of questions:
1 Is there a maximum allowable area for decking or does it depend on site rules / local authority etc?
2 What is the "typical" cost of new decking per square meter?

We were told by our site that our local council now say that the maximum size is 5 ft down the long side of the van and 7 feet to the front. We have a fairly large bay window so clarified if the deck was from the front of the bay or the front of the van, we were told it was 7 feet from the front of the bay, so we actually have about 9 1/2 feet from the wall. Our front deck is 9 1/2 ft X 17ft and the side 24ft X 5ft, this cost us 3600, with steps and a gate, in wood.

There must be specific spacing between the caravans / decking for fire regs etc.
Prices vary massively - The larger parks make up the numbers, its not uncommon for a quote to go in and once it comes out its doubled. All depends on your park, if your one of the larger brand name parks (edit Darren) etc prepare yourself!
