    book.................kindles are the way to go oldtimer:Rofl1:

    however they give out a surprising amount of light, and with another string planned for the centre aisle there will be enough lumens to rival blackpool

    plus i can turn them on 30yds from the van:thumb:

    then the photo doesnt do them justice.

    And i can turn mine on from 30 miles away.....i just ring my wife and say 'turn on the lights' :Rofl1:

    I also have a Kindle reader but its rubbish.....all the books are just one page long.
    When i turn the page theres nothing there except the back of the reader. !

    Why ?

    If there is a compelling reason to install additional lighting .. fair enough.. otherwise, and don't take this personally , when I see this it reminds me of a juke box..

    I've seen them installed at the hab door, under or along the step edge which obviously helps at night... but around cabinet edges.. sorry.. not for me..

    maybe we need a new forum.. How to pimp up your van.

    More is not always better .

    the bay of E

    i feel exactly the same way about satellite dishes, wifi boxes, but opinions are like arseholes, everyone's got one.
    saw some of the newer kit has leds fitted around the kitchen units and swmbo liked the idea so i was tasked with making it happen.

    fair enough.. but sat dishes and wifi have practical uses.. but I take your point, we don't need them.. each to their own..
