    Bit too complicated in a motorhome, you will need pipes, water, pump, heater, thermostat and think off the weight plus you will have to raise the floor to lay the pipes if its going to be water.

    Electric you will have to be on hookup or genni, electic would be ossible but is it worth the agro.

    We've got the Truma blown warm air in ours, it's in the loo as well.....lovely when the weather is cold, the floor never feels cold at all.

    Got underfloor heating in the shower room at home though, best thing we ever did, great on the tootsies when you step out of the shower:thumb:

    I think on electric hook up this would be good for those cold mornings and not to much work but will stick with the SLIPPERS for now :thumb:

    fifth wheel .co .fit it in their fivers . a mate in spain has it .after initial leaks fixed he says its ok. works well. its only another take on the alde wet radiator system . that works well even with the little rads they use.

    Seems daft to me, weight matters, hot air weighs nothing, hot air ducts last forever, a wet system does not of this.

    we have the alde wet system and on a double floor van its kind of under floor heating.
    alde do actually make an underfloor system that ties into their wet system although there seems to be no info on their website.

    "Go Outdoors"....."Blacks"......... and even Maplins, do heated clothing, bodywarmers, trousers, gloves hats...so they probably do socks as well,...a lot cheaper, its another take on the square of carpet attached to your slippers instead of carpetting the whole house.
