Re: Cheapest way to fit a kitchen

Aldi where selling camping cookers last week or week before - always good value

Or look on gumtree or eBay for used ones

Re: 12v electric blanket.

They work okay, they do enough to take the chill off when you get into bed.

Re: BIG Awnings. What's out there?

I occasionally use my Reimo tunnel XL awning http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a292/Fritz380/Woodvale07102.jpg Same as this one - you can almost fit the van in it. It has a bedroom big enough for two and plenty of space. New awnings aren't cheap http://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/freedom-trail-airo-driveaw...

not always, depends on the quality of the jump leads - some are pretty poor. You get what you pay for with them.

Re: Mattress advice needed after an uncomfortable weekend....

You can try them out in some bed shops inc. Ikea - take the camper there and ask them if you can take the topper to the van.

Looks like that could be this weekend's project as it will be raining for most of it - beats crawl...

Re: Quick question re constantly sounding horn

yep, sounds like the copper ring on the underside of the steering wheel has worn or is sticking.
