    I seem to remember reading about a place that will fit solar panels and let you stop over a night whilst they get the work done.

    Either that, or I'm losing my marbles, which could well be the case.

    I have a spare ten days to fill starting from the end of next week and thought I'd book the van in a get the work done whilst having a little break at the same time.

    If anyone knows who it is please do let me know.

    Thanks!

    Thanks peeps. It looks like Vanbitz was the one I saw. It is all coming back to me now :Smile:

    And it looks like they do security stuff too so I could get the solar panels done and improve the security. I already have a tracker, but some kind of alarm system would be good I think.

    I won't be setting of from Yorkshire until Friday so by the time I get down to Cornwall they should be back from their summer hols. Great timing. I hope they can fit me in.

    They fitted a satellite dome for me and a solar panel during a 2 day stay...........all good
    and a very professional set up.

    Taunton is a great place to wander around for a day

    19th!!!

    That's such a shame as I was setting off on Friday, but need to get back the following weekend so won't have time.

    And I thought I'd got myself a plan:cry:

    Does anyone know of anywhere else that could do the solar panels and ideally a full in-van security system at the same time?
