    The one in currys is the wv2 and tesco is selling it for the same £34, this is the wv60. What's the difference?

    Can't really see the need for one of these, if you are suffering such amounts condensation that you need a hoover type gadget to get rid of it then you really have some issues with the motorhome /house, re mix of heat and ventilation.

    It's mostly for cleaning windows at home, never needed it for the MH

    The differences are:

    Currys: WV2 just has the large size head and nothing else
    Tesco: WV60 has 2 different sized heads, plus the squirty bottle and some cleaning liquid ... and it's cheaper!

    We use ours in the camper in a morning to get the condensation off the windscreen/cab rather than having to mop it up with cloths, this is due to the windows being single glazed so always get wet - using external screens stops this but you can't really use them when wild camping! Its amazing the amount of water than you get though and it can then be tipped down the sink to prevent it remaining in the camper, as it would if you then had to dry the cloths out.

    We bought one at B&Q a few weeks ago cos I thought we ought to have one. Now I'm cleaning the house windows and it makes a very good job of them. :xdoh:

    Agree, great for cleaning the windows, I find if you pull too hard on the squeegee you get smears on the glass, just pull it over the glass with a light pressure and a lovely finish.:xThumb:

    I'm sure she will be delighted. What did you get her for her birthday ... a vacuum cleaner?

    I just looked to buy...notified as not available, so I guess all you Funsters filled your boots and emptied the warehouse.

    When I go through the checkout to buy, the no stock message comes up.

    So maybe Santas little helpers will deliver some stock soon.

    Ah I see, we don't have that problem as our cab is separate to the living area but we also seem to suffer very little condensation in the living area normally even though none of our window's are double glazed.
