Default Might buy earlier that planned

We got a letter from haven today saying that there are some good deals available at the moment. Spoke to somebody on the phone about what starter pitches are available. We might go for a visit this weekend but we are going to sleep on it.

Originally we were going to wait until early next year but no harm in looking now if we might get a better deal.

I think Mummybear said Combe haven.. i didnt know where it was so i googled it....... and it is Sussex..

Mummybear..

no harm in looking but keep your arms firmly by your side.... as the sales person will likely try and twist them
and whatever they try and sell you one for.... play hard to get.......

They're hard them H salesmen.....be very careful they don't do as Tia say's and twist your arm up your back There's gunna be 'good' deals around, end of school holidays and only a couple of months to season end......so make sure if they are including site fees, make sure they cover 2013 'cause there's not much of 2012 left

Yes it's Combe haven. We are going armed with all the info that I have researched over the past two weeks. We also have a budget in mind and will stick to it. There is no point in sacrificing our lifestyle at home for the caravan.

Don't let them rush you into decisions, read the small print and make sure you are clear about any grey areas.

We looked at an 'what you said site' the other year. Cos we didn't buy, the nasty sod swore at my wife and myself - rather loudly too. I know his manager heard him, he was watching him. Maybe he sold himself the sack, so we decided NOT to use them.
