    Oyster Digital Twin LNB roof mountable automatic, auto skew TV satellite system. Includes an 85cm satellite dish, a remote control handset, the control, unit with built in freeview, the infra LED dish operating eye, plus approx 5 metres of cabling. However, It does NOT include the roof mounting plate as this was left on our motorhome. However you can apparently buy them on eBay for around £90 but any reputable Oyster installer can provide you with one of these quite cheaply I believe.

    This system has been professionally removed from our Burstner Panorama by Camper UK of Lincoln due to us buying a new motorhome which already has a similar system installed.

    This set up allows you to use a sky plus digi box or similar in your motorhome due to it being a twin LNB system. So you can enjoy the benefits of recording 2 programmes at once and live pause etc. Plus if you are a sky customer you can pick up English TV in many European destinations. You can also tune into loads of different channels and satellites all over the uk and Europe and enjoy Freeview channels if you do not choose to use a digi box or similar.

    I would suggest whoever buys this set up, gets it professionally installed by someone who understand the Oyster brand and who can instruct you on how to use it.

    To buy something like this new would cost approx £2,650. However - we are open to fair offers.

    Buyer must collect from Skegness in Lincolnshire as it is far too big to send by courier.

    As you're not offering fitting what would it cost new fitting aside? and what would the missing mounting plate cost.

    Robert Jackson quoted £350 to include fitting and a comparable mounting plate. Here is a link to his website:

    Hope this helps answer your query.

    Yes thank you. The point was that the value you placed on it including fitting wasn't really relevant to it's value now to take away and fit. i.e there is no residual value in your own fitting cost, that is not relevant.

    Oh dear! Sorry if I wasn't bring relevant! I am just a mere female - what do I know????
    Just trying to emphasise to any interested member that there's chance here to nab a real and genuine bargain! Am I right to presume that you are not an interested prospective purchaser then?
    Thanks for your input and I hope you feel better for correcting my errors?

    We are open to fair offers - and will happily sell to the first person who offers us a fair price. We're not greedy people Gorse, so we're not looking for mega bucks, just whatever anyone thinks is a realistic price for this set up.

    It is in full working order, it is used, it is 8 years old, and it is advisable to have it professionally fitted. it will also need a new mounting plate. The fitting and plate are going to cost the new owner approx £350 and maybe it would be worth getting them to service the set up at the same time. So taking all this into consideration what does anyone feel they'd be happy to pay? We have no idea - which is why we are leaving the price tag up to those who are seriously interested.

    Ooh err!!!!

    Is it too hard for interested parties to offer a price that they believe is fair or what they consider it's worth to them????

    That way they offer a price that they are happy to pay and the seller accepts an offer they are happy to accept! Job done!

    Can't see the problem Judge Mental!!
