    A packet of plastic eyelets £2, some cheese from Snowdonia cheese company about £20, and lunch.

    Looked at a lot of other stuff and saved a fortune by having deep pockets.

    milenco mirror guards (mine were only £65), 2 chairs from Isabella, subscription to Motor caravanner magazine and tried, unsuccessfully, to buy winter covers for the fridge.

    Bought the motorhome (Elddis Aspire) last year - didn't see anything else we would have wanted more so now even more satisfied with our buy!
