Cosy Nights in a Motorhome

Chausson 660 Night time
Model shown: Chausson 660 Exclusive Line

Motorhoming isn't just for the summer months!

With some camping sites open all year round it has become a popular choice for campers who prefer to get away from all the chaos that Christmas can bring, so choosing to pack up a motorhome and look for somewhere quiet is a possibility!

What could be cosier that preparing a slow cooked casserole, setting the heating to a snug temperature, and going for a lovely dog walk around some of the prettiest landscapes throughout the UK. Then on returning to your motorhome having the aroma of freshly cooked food and the motorhome all nice and warm.

Spending the evening in a heated motorhome watching TV or getting out a board game with a bottle of wine or drinking hot chocolate away from the distractions of the daily grind is peaceful bliss and the down time that many of us crave.

Modern motorhomes such as Chausson have been designed to withstand all types of weather with air conditioning for the scorching summer nights and dual heating to warm the motorhome for the colder autumn/winter nights.

Chausson Motorhomes come equipped with two options to heat the motorhome, you can opt to use the gas cylinder or use the engines fuel.

There are many pros to using the engines fuel for heating the motorhome, firstly fuel is available all over the world and is cost effective using just 0.5 litres per hour to heat the whole vehicle. It can also be used while on the road, a gas cylinder will need to be shut off while driving for safety reasons in the event there is an impact. With the fuel choice it also means that you will not need to exit the motorhome on a cold evening to change over a gas cylinder should it run out.

Chausson Motorhomes use i.R.P technology which provides better insulation so you can be confident that the motorhome will stay warm when you’re on a road trip in the colder months.

If you have any questions about Chausson Motorhomes, please feel free to contact our showroom on 01227 289111 or browse our New Chausson Motorhomes Stock List.

Chausson Ford Chassis

Motorhome displayed: Chausson S514 on a Ford Chassis.

The Mighty Ford Transit

Goes From Strength To Strength 

The emergence and huge success of the New FORD TRANSIT as a popular  'base' vehicle for many European motorhomes, has surprised us all who once upon a time might have believed that FIAT`s motorhome monopoly was cast in stone.

Ford Motor Company are striving to offer a real alternative for new Motorhomes, with more power and specification than many of it`s rivals, and a more car-like 'feel' with excellent ergonomics, aided by comprehensive seating adjustments and a steering wheel that can adjust telescopically as well as in height too.

Standard Ford specifications on most New Chausson motorhomes in 2022 will include the impressively smooth and reliable 6 x Speed Automatic transmission with Hill-Start assist, the powerfully robust 2.0 170 bhp engine, ABS Brakes, ASR Anti-Slip system, ESP ( Dynamic Trajectory Control ) ,  Twin Air Bags, Cruise & Speed Control, Stop-Start, and Electronically Assisted Power Steering.

Chausson Motorhomes, one of the most popular imported motorhome ranges into the UK,  continue to dominate the UK market with an impressive range of vehicles, with innovative space saving designs and quality finishing firmly believe in offering consumer choice,  and so are committed to providing both chassis options, ( Fiat & Ford ) on the majority of Chausson models, however acknowledge that demand for the Ford Transit as the base vehicle for New Chaussons is off the scale ! .

For more information about the Chausson New Motorhomes for 2022, Or indeed for the Fiat or Ford chassis that we use, don’t hesitate to contact Shane Catterick at T C Motorhomes.

How to watch TV in a Motorhome


Motorhome shown is the Chausson 660 Exclusive Line.

The Creature Comforts of Home, In A Motorhome

When the weather turns nasty, your sat in your motorhome And wanting to watch TV.

It is possible to set up a TV system, which will work in your motorhome using a 12-x volt power supply from the motorhome leisure battery.

With a TV aerial fitted to the roof of the motorhome, (Status and Maxview are two of the most popular brands) and a 12-x volt signal booster between the aerial and a Motorhome 12 x volt TV, it is possible that that a good selection of the Freeview channels will be available to you.

Most modern 12 x volt TV`s, (Vision Plus and Avtex are two of the most popular brands) will have a DVD drive fitted, and so if the tv signal is too weak you can always watch a favourite DVD.

12 x volt Satellite Dishes are an alternative to the 12-x volt tv aerial, but are comparatively expensive to buy and have fitted, and need a 12-x volt signal de-coder, (often de-coders are now built-in to a modern 12 x volt tv`s).

Roof mounted satellite dishes also need `line-of-sight` and so are not dependable if your Motorhoming among the trees, or with other obstacles in the way.

A more recent and increasingly popular method of watching tv, is streaming, … Motorhome Wi-Fi if you will!

With a Wi-Fi Hub fitted into the motorhome, both 4G and 5G systems are now available, you can stream your favourite programs.

Using a roof mounted aerial, and a sim card system, it is possible to stream TV, much like you do from home, with a top-up data system, akin to a mobile phone contract.

For more information on Motorhome Wi-Fi contact T C Motorhomes on 01227 289111.

Motorhome frost damage prevention

Important - please note! frost damage prevention

To protect your internal water system from frost damage, it`s a good idea to drain down your motorhomes water system when not in use.

  1. Open all drain taps
  2. Open water heater / combi boiler safety drain valve
  3. Open water tank drain valve
  4. Open all water taps, and run the water pump for a short time,
  5. Leave the tap heads open, so that moisture can escape.

Allowing water in the internal water system to freeze, can and usually does cause damage to the components which inevitably will not be covered under your warranty.

Therefore, if there is any danger or threat of frost when the motorhome is not in use, (even for a short period) the water system must be drained.

In addition to draining all water out of your motorhome, here are some additional guidance notes:

  • Lower any drop-down beds if you have them, this will enable improved ventilation around the mattresses
  • Move seat cushions away from the walls
  • If possible, leave some `low-level` background heat in the motorhome, an oil-filled radiator is a popular choice

Should you require any specific advice or guidance, please contact our after-sales department on 01227 289111.

Virtual Postcard!

Hi Shane, hope you and the team there are well. Was good to see your posting on Instagram with the guys from Chausson visiting. 
 
Anyways, thought id send you a virtual postcard, albeit somewhat belated… certainly making the most of the 640 and been away in it a lot.

Exterior view Chausson 640 Motorhome


Gorgeous weather from Norfolk, albeit a few weeks ago. Alice and Dad mini road trip.  Saturday and Sunday nights we stayed at Incleboro Fields CAMC site near Sheringham in Norfolk. Motorhome quick setup with teamwork, 20 mins from arriving, chairs are out and Alice sorted cupboards in a few minutes. Loving the 640, its so easy compared to towing our previous caravan which we did love, but just moved on and want to travel more. Weather in Norfolk was gorgeous.

Funny on the drive up to Norfolk, Alice really got into the swing of being expert waver at motorhomes coming in the other direction. I was informed i wave too late.. must be an age thing or maybe because i was intently concentrating on driving. I'll take the latter. Sheringham and Holt visits.... Steam train to holt, market on. First class carriage to ourselves. Note to myself, "Wild Norfolk" a very tasty pint - try and find locally.

Monday morning we pushed off from Incleboro and headed to White House Beach CAMC site at Kessingland, just south of Lowestoft for one night only. Couple of miles on route as we stopped at Cromer for a few hours. Parked the motorhome in the large carpark on top of the cliff just outside Cromer, another Chausson next to us and headed along the path with Flora toward the town. 

We saw the goats grazing on the cliff side, along the promenade, weird for sure, some kind of  goat that can also climb trees apparently.  Grabbed pot of cockles as made our way through town to the pier. One of the few piers that allows dogs.  After our couple of hours in Cromer, we hit the road and headed south east toward Lowestoft, our journey interrupted twice by stops at two Aldi stores in our search of Bao buns, those elusive but soft and tasty steamed buns that go so well with pulled pork. Slightly apprehensive about finding parking at Aldi it turned out pretty easy,  i just sat in the motorhome whilst junior went hunting for the bao buns. The search failed... we moved on, although shopping was not in vain as Alice returned with a small table for her flat. Not sure that was on the list, the danger of the magic aisle.


One night spent at White House Beach CAMC site at Kessingland which is right next to the beach. One side of the site is literally at beach edge. When we checked in we hoped to get onto that side but was not to be, "full up" the guy said. Some hours later we walked over there, an empty pitch.. but hey ho. The site is kind of in the middle of nowhere, a pub and a restaurant. The pub certainly didn't take Alices fancy and the restaurant, which looked ok and has very good reviews was shut. No matter to us as we had a motorhome full of food. 

After quickly setting up, which took no time at all as we travelled with pretty much everything in the cupboards we set about going for a walk along the beach. Beach is stony and broad, with a few scatterings of old fishing machinery from past times.  Shortly before midnight i had the idea to go to the beach side and see the ships out at sea lit up. Alice took a bit of convincing but graciously agreed and came with me. Something about looking out to sea at night with lights glinting in the distance. The sky unfortunately was overcast so no stars to see. Fifteen minutes later we were again back warm and cosy in the motorhome.

Leaving site the following day, we detoured via Southwold and parked up about two minutes walk from the pier, wouldn’t dreamed of parking up with our previous caravan. Ten motorhome bays. Southwold also allows dogs on the pier. Spent couple of hours or so in the town, including supporting a local fish and chip shop. Had to be done, but only a single portion of chips! 


Fantastic few days, in a fantastic motorhome with fantastic daughter. Motorhome makes it so easy to get away spontaneously.

Cheers

Peter

The Importance of Regular Motorhome Servicing


The annual Motorhome Habitation Inspection / Service is designed to check that the equipment on board your Motorhome is working correctly, and to ensure that there are no hazards, safety or otherwise that might affect your enjoyment, or the integrity and durability of your motorhome. 

With excellent on-site facilities here at T C Motorhomes, and modern mechanical and habitation workshops, and with factory trained technical staff, we can undertake most servicing and MOT`s at TC's.

Typically, both services ( Engine & Habitation ) and if applicable an MOT test can be completed in a day, and most of our customers will generally take a ride into Canterbury, Herne Bay (our nearest town) or Whitstable to while away the hours. 

For the dog owners among you, there are some superb coastal walks where you can take your pooch!  

And for those preferring to drop-off and leave their motorhome from one weekend to the next, we can oblige, we have the space, and given the time we will endeavor to treat your motorhome to a wash and hoover whilst it`s with us. 

At this time of year regrettably we have a back log, so be sure to book early! Call: 01227 289111.

Chausson Handover and Review

Ian and Michelle are pictured picking up their new Chausson 640 Premium from us. They took the time to write us a really kind testimonial which you can read below. 

"After lots of research, and despite living 450 miles away we decided to part-exchange our motorhome, and buy our new Chausson 640 Premium from TC Motorhomes which I'm glad we did. We dealt with Shane from start to finish, and he is a credit to the company, very knowledgeable, never pushy, and very professional. The handover last Saturday was very thorough, everything on the vehicle was explained from top to bottom, and the several cups of coffee and biscuits offered were very welcome indeed. TC Motorhomes is the second motorhome company we have bought from, and compared to the previous dealer, the difference was chalk and cheese. Shane, and the other members of staff's friendliness, and professionalism completely overshadowed our previous experience, so you can be sure if you are thinking of buying a motorhome, TC Motorhomes is the first place to look, no matter where you live in the UK. Thanks again."

TC Motorhomes COVID Guidelines

Our dealership is now OPEN! and taking the first initial steps back to some normality as we come out of the Pandemic, and progressively recover old norms.

It will however be necessary in the interim to make an appointment to visit our dealership, to safeguard those wanting to come to our showrooms, and of course my colleagues in our workplace.

Distancing whilst on-site will of course be encouraged, and we will continue to sanitise our display vehicles and sales and workshop areas on a regular basis.

We will also continue to provide sanitiser and glove stations for all visitors to our showrooms.

For those wanting to visit our showrooms and explore the exciting range of New Chausson and Used Motorhomes that we sell, we look forward to welcoming you here.

If you’re interested in purchasing a used motorhome from us, we can generally complete our extensive service and preparation procedures within 10 – 14 days, so not too long to wait before taking to the road, and enjoying all the freedoms that motorhoming brings .

As the UK`s only `Solus` Chausson dealership, we also keep on site an excellent selection of New Chausson motorhomes, and stock is continually being replenished from the factories hard at work in Tournon and Sable, so it’s a rare occasion when we can’t supply the Chausson model of your choosing,  in a reasonable time frame. 

The fitting of any dealer accessories and the slightly laborious new motorhome registration procedures usually dictate a delay from order to collection, of about 3 x weeks.  

Plenty of time for you to visit your local retailer and stock up on new kitchen, bathroom and bedding equipment for the `pride & joy` that is your new motorhome. Bespoke `fitted` bedding is available from specialist on-line suppliers, please ask for details.

Whilst we anticipate Monday 12th April, and future dates around the relaxing of Covid rules, we continue to provide a `Reserve & Collect` service to customers wanting to purchase a new or used motorhome from the comfort of their own home.

So, if you don’t want to risk missing out on a new or used motorhome that you have seen on our listings, call us now for a personalised walk around of your preferred motorhome, and if at the end of that you are sufficiently encouraged to place your order, we will be pleased to process your purchase.

If you have any questions or concerns at how this might work for you, please call us now on 01227 289111

When you are on a road trip cooking will be something that you will want to keep quick and simple as well as being tasty and nutritious. With limited space in comparison to your kitchen at home you may be wondering how you can achieve this.

The new 2021 Chausson motorhomes come with various options for cooking either internally and or externally for when it’s a nice day and you would like to spend as much time outside enjoying the sun while drinking a glass of wine!

Inside the motorhome there is a hob with an electric hot plate and 2 gas burners, a gas oven with an integrated grill and a fridge / freezer for storing fresh ingredients. Also, the kitchen section inside the motorhomes has an extendable shelf which can be extended and then collapsed when not in use. 

Please note, to use the electric hob you would need to have your motorhome plugged in to an external 240v power supply (which are available on most campsite pitches), if this isn't an option, for example you are wild camping then you have the various options which use gas.

Externally the majority of new Chausson Motorhomes have an external gas supply which is ideal if you wish to use a Cadac type of cooker or a gas-powered portable BBQ, and with most new Chausson Motorhomes having a garage its not problem to store extra items you may wish to take with you on your adventures!

There are a lot of online resources to inspire you with quick and easy recipes. Simply searching "motorhome cooking recipes" in your preferred search engine will provide you with lots of ideas.

To start you off here are a few examples we have found online that will give you with some new recipes to try:

The Importance of Regular Motorhome Servicing

The 2 year warranty on your new Chausson motorhome, requires that you have a Habitation Inspection every year to maintain the warranty. 

There-after at the very least, an annual Damp Inspection should be carried out by your Chausson Dealer to maintain the Chausson water ingress warranty of 7 years.

The Habitation Inspection is designed to check that the equipment on board your Chausson is working correctly, and to ensure that there are no hazards, safety or otherwise that might affect your enjoyment, or the integrity and durability of your motorhome.  

With excellent on-site facilities here at T C Motorhomes, and modern mechanical and habitation workshops, and with factory trained technical staff, we can undertake most servicing and repairs at T C `s.

Typically, both services and if applicable an MOT test can be completed in a day, and most of our customers will generally take a ride into Canterbury, Herne Bay  (our nearest town) or Whitstable to while away the hours.

For the dog owners among you, there are some superb coastal walks where you can take your pooch! Take a look at Reculver on TripAdvisor

For those preferring to drop-off and leave their motorhome from one x weekend to the next, we can oblige, we have the space, and given the time we will endeavor to treat your motorhome to a wash and hoover whilst it`s with us.

To book an MOT or a habitation check please contact us on 01227 289111.

New changes to traveling to the EU with your pet

Due to the changes that came with the UK leaving the EU, new rules apply to taking your pet abroad on holiday with you.

Anyone wanting to travel with their dog, cat or ferret will need to apply for a 'Health Certificate' under the new rules that came in to force on the 1st January 2021. 

The terms of the health certificate are as follows, 
  • Your pet must be microchipped
  • Must be over 12 weeks old
  • Vaccinated against rabbies and of waited 21 days for the vaccine to work
  • Dogs must be treated for tapeworm 24-120 hours before travel
  • The health certificate must be issued by your vet no more than 10 days before travel
Once issued, the Health Certificate will be valid for 10 days on entry in to the EU and is valid for 4 months, but you must return to Great Britain before the 4 months ends.

More information can be found here: Pet Travel to and from Great Britain.
