    And a few other bits and bobs around the MH, I have searched in vain on ebay! :D
    I have finally started to repair the things that have annoyed me since we got the van, I have replaced loads so far, but these are the bits I still need:
    I need a couple of the push in push out type knobs for a couple of cupboards. Don't ask how, because seriously I don't know, the little perspex disc over the lights in the dinnette has been smashed, so I need a new one.
    Can anyone point me in the right direction

    Any chance of a couple of photos? There are a variety of knobs and light fittings about :)

    I need one too, Daniel.. but this time one that doesn't play golf.

    As for yours the cheapest place may be a caravan breakers yard .. I managed to find brand new looking bits and bobs for pennies for my last van.

    I replaced a couple of the knobs on my last van as I was selling it. bought a lot of 5 for under £10 on ebay. replacing just the cover of the light will be difficult. you may need to buy a whole light

    Missed that bit about the light. If you have a major problem I am bringing our van back from Portugal at the end of November, and have a similar problem with a flat Perspex cover, and have arranged to have a replacement laser cut by a friend. He could probably be pressed into doing one for yourself, so if you PM me around the end of October, I will be probably be able to help out (max thickness 5mm)

    OK, been a busy day, but managed to get to the van, and take a pic of the light fitting. This is obviously not the smashed one! :D
    I don't mind buying a complete unit, in fact I may buy a couple, just so I have spares!
