    I bought a swivel chair off ebay for my workshop when we were away in the van. It was too big to fit inside so I strapped it onto the bike rack on the rear. We stopped for fuel in Tenby and when Val went in to pay, the cashier asked "is that the naughty seat ?" :LOL:

    Now thats a thought, always saying she needs some fresh air!

    Would bring a new meaning to "belt up", she always thinks I mean put the seat belt on!

    Roll out awning for me.
    I don't mind doing jobs on the van but I'd prefer a pro to fit an awning

    Solar panel,extra leisure battery,bulk LPG tank any of these I personally wouldn't go for an awning as we don't use ours very much.

    Aren't solar panels, awnings and two leisure batteries standard? If not, they should be. :)

    If I toured the UK primarily as I do then extra battery. If going abroad then probably solar.

    I had the choice of 2 freebees so I opted for an alarm system and a rollout awning .

    Very much dependant on where you go and how you use the van...
    If you go abroad, solar and an extra battery OR refillable gas-it system.
