    I think you can use your Motability Allowance to buy a campervan and just pay the difference over and above what the price is. Then you can use the allowance to run and maintain the vehicle. The problem there, I have found, is finding a smallish one that's automatic!

      Glad you found my earlier 12V powerpack tip of use.

      However, technology has progressed since then and, far more efficient, are some of the USB heatpads powered by a simple rechargeable USB powerbank.

      Here's a good one complete with 3 temperature levels. They're not easy to find but highly recommended if you can source one due to the very small amount of power they consume either from a leisure battery or USB powerbank: https://www.thewarmingstore.com/brun...tsync-mat.html

        Hi Karen, other than the cost benefit wouldn't an electric blanket still be warmer and bigger than a usb heatpad? I'm thinking of buying the following supply and using an electric blanket. I can certainly see that a pad would draw less so could be used for longer. ALLPOWERS 288Wh/78000mAh Portable Solar Generator Power Inverter Power Station Camping Emergency Power Supply

          Hello and Welcome. I've recently been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, so I know a little about what you're going through. Happy travels and good for you.

                Yes, it is but these are handy for providing warmth while consuming very little power which can be an issue. These draw so little that they can be left on overnight and if you head out into freezing conditions then you can 'wear' them over a T-shirt and under a fleece or jumper and stay toasty warm while powering them from just a small USB heatpad.

                      Just taken delivery of a "Suaoki 150Wh Solar Power Generator Supply Source Energy Storage Battery Charging" bought from Ebay. I've tested it running an electric blanket and heater that I plan to use on my travels, and my TV, which uses about 65w, that I don't, see the photos. I'm pleased with it so just bought another, for £75. Apparently it will run things that use up to 100wh.

                        Looking forward to wild car camping with my new electric blanket, space heater, and batteries for the first time, in north Cornwall this week.
