    Thanks for the bump, Fred!

    I sent that message to Chris and then forgot all about it.

    I’ll send him another.   I still have all the links  – they just need re-establishing on the site and only Chris can do that.

    Good to hear tbat you’re ‘biking again, Fred.  I’ve sold the BMW, for much the same reasons I sold the Exsis, but I’ve bought an old, small 1965 Yamaha 250 YDS3 to pootle about on.

    Thanks again.

    Best wishes to all,

    Barry

    Yes, I still have all the links to the PDFs, Fred.

    I’m just waiting for Keymaster Chris to get back to me, so we can arrange to put the links back onto the Forum.

    Near to the sink, Tom?  Water splashes from there?

    Hi Chris & Susan,

    Thanks for drawing our attention to this and for posting your copies.  This is something I will contact Admin Chris about and see if we can get the links re-established.

    Thanks again.  Best wishes to you both.

    Sorry to hear this, Tom

    I recommend you speak to Martin at A&N Caravan Services – a very helpful guy.

    An acceptable replacement for the Abus is a German ‘Basi’ make lock.

    I recommend you read “Fitting a Habitation Door Lock”, Item No. 5 on page 29 of Tom’s excellent ‘The Little Exsis Book’ (free download).  But… this is not a job for the casual DIYer, in my opinion.  I highly recommend that you have it fitted professionally, for a variety of reasons.

    Good luck.

    Hello, Boris from France!!

    Welcome to the world of Exsis…

    If you let me have your email address (send it to hymerexsis@gmail.com) I will send you a  pdf of either a 2004, 2005 or 2006 Owners Manual.

    Please note that each Exsis manual was created for each individual Exsis – they are not a generic handbook covering all Exsis’ – and as such these manuals may not exactly match your vehicle.  For a handbook specific to your actual vehicle, contact Hymer at…Kundendienst@hymer.com  – Include the serial number of your Exsis and they will send you a pdf as appropriate.

    Best wishes,

    Barry

    Time marches on, Mike & France…

    It’s been really good having you as ‘Exsis chums’, offering advice, helping with Exsistravaganzas, and generally being great and reliable companions.  So, a big “Thank you”, not just from me but from all of us in our little ‘club’, for all the effort you put in, mostly unseen and ‘behind the scenes’.  But as I said, time marches on… but an ‘Adria’, Mike?? 😄 I’m joking of course, I just know it’s a beautiful ‘van.

    Have a great time in (it/him/her?) and enjoy your travels, whenever we’re permitted.

    Love and best wishes to you both.

    Well spotted, Fred.

    It’s an Exsis!!

    A few points… a lower roofline – the bed lowered would probably not leave room to sit at the table, and not as roomy inside for the very tall.   Why no offside window, for goodness’ sake?  Just a big, blank wall??  That would be a must for me, to be fitted by the dealer before I took delivery.  I couldn’t see the fridge?  The plan says it’s just inside the door, a la Exsis, but the photos just show a wardrobe.  And I’m sure the quality is not as good.

    But… hey ho, an excellent replacement.  No price shown, but I’m guessing, ooh, upwards of £65k??

    Well done, Fred!   At last…

    And the same goes for me, too, Mike & France.  Over the years, you’ve not only helped with great advice on the Forum but practically too, especially with the Exsistravaganzas.  Most people won’t be aware of the work you put in ‘behind the scenes’, dealing with the motorhome press and so on, on behalf of the Forum members.

    Thank you both for your great company over the years and we wish you well with your next moves.

    Love and best wishes,

    Barry & Maggie

    Hi Alan,

    It’s in the post now – should be with you in a day or so.

    I’m happy for you to make a donation to a charity (preferably a children’s charity) for whatever you feel appropriate.

    Best wishes.

    That’s an amazing job, Fred.  It reflects something another member did a few years ago, whose name I have sadly forgotten, but who brought THE most magnificent tiramisu to our Exsistravaganza!

    I investigated the legality of “riding in a vehicle without a seat belt” some years ago.  It is NOT an offence for anyone sitting in a properly constructed sideways-facing seat to not wear a seat belt – in fact, a seat belt must not be fitted to such a seat either.  Your insurance company may have a separate ruling, though.  It is actually DANGEROUS to wear a seatbelt whilst sitting facing sideways if involved in an accident – if the hips are restrained while the upper body twists or travels sideways as it could do in a frontal crash, it could result in a broken back.  Think about it.

    So Fred’s design could be the saviour for those of you with children/grandchildren, who want to take them with you, but keep them safe and legally restrained.

    Thanks Fred.

    Just ask Webasto for the load, Alan.  Disconnect the engine battery momentarily, to check that the Webasto or cab blower aren’t connected to it.

    It seems an unusual arrangement to have the Webasto connected to the base vehicle air blowing system.  In fact, Webasto actually warn against doing this, because the heat output of the Webasto is often greater than the construction (plastic fans, trunking, etc) of the base vehicle can stand.
