    Love all the threads about things people have bought, but what about those things you regret buying...

    Having collected a new Campervan today I find that it comes with a carbon monoxide detector (making the one I bought redundant), together with an electric hook up cable (shame I bought one of those in advance too).

    That could be a very deep philosophical question :)

    You seem pretty certain about this. Yet to see one on offer at the bring and buy.

    Just filled the van with diesel before selling it - old habits die hard.

    When I was starting the project of fitting out our new narrow boat I thought I would treat myself to a state of the art 3ft level.
    I quickly realised nothing on a boat is ever going to be level!!!! Especially when its in the water - Doh!

    Looked at that it was a king size but 2 singles from it would have been too narrow, also looked at converting to one single & buying just one single, in the end brought 2 new singles.
