    I'm looking to remove our air con unit and fit mini heki in it's place and then fit a midi heki where mini came from.
    I've searched the net without any luck to try and buy a used one.
    Does anyone have any idea where I might be able to source one from ?
    Best price I've found for a new one is just short of £300.

    Have you tried O'Leary's at Beverly ?, they have a web site, worth a look.

    I am never keen on using second hand plastic parts like rooflights. the uv from the sun generally makes them brittle and they can warp.

    the only source of second hand parts i can think of is caravan breakers, of which there are only a handful about. the same heki rooflights are used on both motorhomes and caravans

    I took the plunge and bought a new one from Jacksons Leisure.
    It's come without an installation kit. Can anyone tell me if these are extra ?
    I've emailed them but waiting for a reply.
    Also how can you tell the difference between a vented and non vented one ?
    Serious answers please.

    only difference between vented and unvented as far as i can see is the addition of a foam sealing strip

    we found the vented had a sealing strip half way round this we was told was for the fact we had a gas fire in the van and the non vented had a strip all the way round .
