What annoys me is the people who are arriving late and/or leaving early and see fit to open and close the hab door fifty million times!

That's true Graham but a few early ones I saw a few years ago seemed to get stuck on the just-before-final-close bit which left you with a massive gap.

Hopefully they'll improve on the design then so that they work

When we picked the van up, there was some damage to the bathroom acrylic surround which was noted on the handover documentation. I was told this would be sorted under warranty. Nearly six months on still not repaired as they are having difficulty sourcing the replacement.

I was hoping this would be done before February half term as we ramp up the use of the van from then.

More disappointed than angry

What is the damage? Acrylic can be very forgiving, deep scratches can be smoothed and polished and in many cases even chips can be greatly improved with a bit of elbow grease.

Pity you didn't keep a retainer to be paid on completion of the job

It's usable and in fact we have been using the van since July.

The acrylic is crazed above the sink and over the months its started to increase in size. The deal was when we picked it up they would replace the panel. Spoke to Marquis last week and they said Autosleeper aren't responding to them on a number of issues including my own. Suggesting I contact Autosleeper myself to try and move it forward.
