Started in 2005, then took a 15 year break, back in 2022
Been trying to find the make/model of the socket in my Dethleffs.
They all match (240v, USB, TV, Switches etc). I guess it's a make/model/range.

Did a bit of Google image seaching but can't find an exact match.

The ones I want have square corners as in the photo.

Any ideas of a good vendor in the UK?

The inside black bit is from CBE and easily found on fleabay. The outer bit is also made by CBE for Hymer group conversions. They are more difficult to source without having your pocket picked by a Hymer group dealer

Those outers are also used in Rapidos.

enough to know i shouldnt touch things i know nothing about ....
If the outer covers are difficult or just too expensive, think about replacing them all with rounded corners and sell you square ones?

There are 3 brands (at least) to look at:

CBE - the original makers of the system, from Italy. They have a couple of different outer covers/frames they make.
C-Line - a british brand that has copied the CBE devices and have their own cover/frame combo
Inprojal - a German copy of the CBE devices. These are the ones Hymer use and are readily available outside the Hymer dealer network.

I stick with the CBE kit generally when possible, especially on the Frame & Cover part as the C-Line ones can be a right bugger to remove without breaking.

Extensively by motorcycle, now trying it with a little more luxury!
This is an interesting thread for me as I have been looking in to this for some time now as I have been making some mods to my Hymer that uses these fittings, incidentally they are also used by many other companies such as Adria, Kabe etc. Hoovie is actually correct, they are made by a German company called Inprojal and are from the system 20.000 series, they have a website that lists all the different fittings, but it appears that they do not sell to the end user. I have found suppliers in Germany and Spain and enquiries are ongoing, but because of Brexit it's now a problem buying bits from Europe as many do not want to ship to the UK anymore.
The single, double and triple matt Silver surrounds, Black back plates and inserts are however easily obtained from Clearcut campers on ebay and very reasonably priced, these are the exact ones and I can provide listing numbers/links if required. The main problem is however the switches and sockets etc that go in the frames, CBE and C-Line are compatible but not the correct colour, they are dark grey and Brown instead of Black and the light switches unfortunately look like they are from the 70's. The Inprojal switches have a more modern squared finish to the corners. I have fitted the correct frames and temporary fitted CBE/C-Line inserts until I can obtain the correct ones.

Regarding removing the trims, I have one of those plastic automotive trim removal tool kits, perfect for removal without damage and any other vehicle trims parts.

I fitted an inverter and sockets to a chap with a Burstner I think it was pretty recently. He sourced the sockets himself but not sure where he got them from. I can ask him and let you know if any help?
