dghr272 Yes guarantees can be strange, a local scrapyard owner when asked if a purchased engine was guaranteed he gruffly replied, “yeah I guarantee if it doesn’t work it’s fecked.”

Penquin OBrien has had a cheap reputation for any years, they used to sell from a large marquee at virtually every show with the sort of gimmicks that most did not want eg plastic twin tub washing machine for MH (30 ?) as well as old surplus stock from virtually every UK based MH converter.

If you wanted a rear light cluster for a 1995 Swift, have a look through the box there mate, you would probably find something very similar.

We bought a camping fridge 12v, gas, or 240v looked as ugly as sin, obviously from a cheap sited tent type establishment. Cost us 25 and lasted 20+ years before the lid hinges died.

So, check carefully as their guarantees are not always easy to work with, but they do have cheap replacement parts assuming they have what you want.

Not surprised if the website looked to be about 1995, the marquee always looked that way too...

Pudsey_Bear No Prices, you ring with the model of your fridge, should be a label inside the body of it, and ask which would be the best fit, no prices as people kept undercutting them so it's POA now.


I had a burner problem and chimney too, I cured it with a new jet, which is basically just a tiny indented disk with a hole in it, the old one was fine, I got some fishing line and tied a small nut onto it and ran it up and down the chimney until it stopped throwing rust onto some white paper below is, cured it long enough to use it til I sold it on.

Should you need a replacement, this guy seems to have all that sorted already.

Doesnt seem to be any prices Kev and in the contact us it says they are closed for business. That website looks like it was designed in 1995.

The arches are not steel and not a massive job.

The fridge is not combusting properly. Might be the wrong burner. It sets off the Co2 alarm and stinks but its flu is badly corroded and cant be cleaned out so each year it causes problems with muck on the burner.

So next thing is to get it back to my motorhome fix it bloke get the hole in the floor and arches done which are not a big job apparently and the fridge sorted which I suspect might be a PIA. Still scooterless and no progress on that front yet. So the saga continues but on the positive side I now have a motorhome with a years test on it!

Well pleased about that news.

I will reserve other comments for 'Another Place'
