    Thanks Bill i also thought that they were good value compared to having an aircon unit fitted into your motorhome(y) but im always a bit wary about products ive not heard of.but it does look an excellent bit of kit.

    Bought one at the last NEC show. Not had chance to use it in the motor home as not experianced any warm weather since!
    It is used frequently in our bedroom at home. We add a few drops of Albas oil, then leave running for about an hour on the lowest setting, prior to bedding down. (Apparently the Aussies put citronella in theirs to keep the mosquitos away?)
    The room is fresh and crisp when ready to go to bed.
    Hearing it at the show I didn't realise how loud it is, especially when on full power. I imagine and hope that in warmer climates, left running in the van, will certainly reduce the temperature.
    Overall I am happy with the unit.
    If it's air con you are comparing it too, I think the size and cost of the unit should tell you their is little comparison.

    There has been a similar thread on one of the Facebook forums, and quite a few negative views, myself included, for the heavy price I was totally underwhelmed by the unit.

    I saw these at the Harrogate Show and they seemed overpriced for what they are.
    I would imagine that as soon as the water warms up the cooling effect compared to a normal fan would be negligible
    I've just ordered an Endless Breeze 12v fan as many seem to rate them on here

    We bought one at Norfolk Mhome show last year, very good for such a small unit and no need for hook up.
