Hiya, I've got a 1991 Elddis Vogue and am pretty sure it's got damp probably in a few places that i'm aware of and others i'm not. I've just ordered a damp detector to confirm this and find the unknown areas. Also know it's got about 1/2-1 meter square of delamination near the fridge so need some very simple step by step guides on how to carry out these repair. I'm a woman who'll give anything a go but please be gentle with me.  What would be the first thing to start with, i'm obviously guessing after finding all the damp where the water is coming in from. How is this done?

Thanks in advance.

On attempting to have a look at the Lunar Clubman listed - I found that the site is reported as out of date and closed. Perhaps I am the only Lunar Meteor owner member?

If it can't be sorted using a big hammer and suitable chisel, It was'nt properly designed and put together originally

Just finishing a few repairs and upgrades of our 1990 Elddis XL Cyclone and have put together a website with pics and info.

I would like it to be added to the "Fixed it club" site links if you think its worthy, as the club has been the inspiration for me to buy the Elddis as a cheap project caravan.

The site can be found at:

http://stevescaravan.webs.com

Thanks.

To all the fixed it club members,

I am currently repairing a 1991 Abbey GTS 215 which I have been keeping a record of all the problems and solutions and blogging about the repair.

There are many photos, some advice and some links found on the following website.

www.abbeycaravanrepair.webs.com

It is a complete overhaul of the van and the project is still in its infancy but feel free to have a gander and get in touch.

Without the fixed it club websites and forums I do not think I would have had the enthusiasm to tackle such a project. I would like to offer that same attitude with my own project. Above all else to enjoy our vans.

Cheers
Callum (03001978)
