    I think I'll wait till I get to "civilisation" - there is a Dunelm Mill nearby - just hope the price doesn't change much. Have had some negative experiences with poorly packaged goods ordered over the internet. Some companies have returns policies which are extremely inconvenient to say the least - and you have to wait ages for replacement or refund.

    One brilliant exception Excellent customer service from wacky practicals- I ordered a collapsible bucket for my romahome from

    http://wackypracticals.com/?gclid=CK...FYl9fAodUkAu9Q


    Expensive but very practical. Anyway it arrived rather distorted to say the least - I photographed damged bucket, emailed them the pics. They were very apologetic and sent out another immediately - I didn't even have to both with the hassle of sending the damaged one back. I am pleased as punch with my bucket - takes up very little space when folded - it is for my waste water - at such times when I park somewhere I cannot just let it run into the ground.

    Hi! We simply stand ours directly behind the front seats, in the centre, where they've put the toilet on the New R20. Easily moved when you stop for a teabreak. And they really do work well. Graham and Carole

    I'd be worried about the space taken up and safety of such an item.

    Sorry to sound negative.
    Even if there is one with an outlet that you can poke out of a window wouldn't the open window let the cold in.

    I agree with Chris667 and very much doubt that such a product exists.

    I can only magine the impracticalities of dealing with the fuel supply (gas or diesel) and exhaust hoses of such a contraption...

    can somebody please advise on the best portable burner heater, something with an exhaust outlet hose which can be put out a window/door/etc and which can be moved from vehicle to vehicle with ease ? thanks,

    In that case, for comfort when moving around inside the van, I'll experiment with the top up plus using the radiator, first. Thanks, Jayjay.

    Anyway, that little heater certainly blasts out some heat! Might have to choose between the old thermals or the heater come next camping trip!!

    Here it is! They are quite expensive, but you'll never have to buy another. My sis bought a mini rad for her caravan from B&Q at approx half the price, but it doesn't kick the heat out my Bambino does. And very small. I either put it by the back door to one side, or up on the cooker top if I'm not using the cooker, out of the way. It doesn't weigh very much but is a great way of warming a caravan on EHU.

    Enjoy it.

    Re the roof, I rarely raised the roof in my Roo but always kept a side window open for ventilation. Now I no longer have an elevating roof but I keep my roof vent at least partially opened whatever the weather to keep a flow of air passing through and have a solar-powered extractor fan at the rear.
