Hi all – regarding the cracked shower base – was quoted £500 for a new unfitted base from Hobby, then decided as a last call to ES Hartley – their price for a new base fitted was £850, it had to be done in Liverpool – when looking at the figures it was £350 more than a new base plus diesel/petrol & campsite fees
Took the Toskana there towing the Smart, so was able to drive back and then a week later go up again and we spent a week in Liverpool
Fully recommend ES Hartleigh’s they did a great job and looks original, they were friendly even storing my trailer, and know they were short of space but they still did it
Did I make the right decision, would have loved to have replaced the base myself and fairly confident could have done it, but for £350, thinking of all the problems plus things like tubes of sealant etc. and as my wife says things always go back with at least one screw missing when I repair anything
Just one thing more, the coating on our shower base was not Speedcoat which is quite thick and very tough, if you are planning to get it coated would make sure it is the proper Speedcoat it is expensive but would have saved replacing the shower base.
