It's one of these you are looking for.

At that price, it's worth buying one and taking "Just in case".
We've been (to France) twice so far, and haven't needed it, as many sites have the "commando" socket as per the UK.
We're planning on overnighting en-route in our tent next month (as opposed to a hotel), more than likely on municipal site(s), so who knows, maybe we'll get to use it this year.

2016: 3 nights/1 camp. Hoorah!
2015: 38 nights/11 camps
2014: 34 nights/10 camps
2013: 36 nights
2012: 23 nights

You’ll love a Champion when caravanning! Quiet Petrol and LPG Generators
Champion Generators We all love getting away to the campsite. Often though, you’ll need some power around the site. Champion, the USA’s No1 Generator, is now available in the UK and has got you covered with its range of quiet Petrol and LPG Generators well suited for campground use. Visit the Champion Generators website for more info.

Many thanks to Saxo1 and Mucker for your comments. I suspect the sites we are planning to use will accept the socket, but you're right, at that price, it's not a problem to buy one just in case!

Thank you very much for a quick response.


2015: Somerset, Highlands, New Forest (12 nights)
2016: France (in plan)

I was looking at making one up, as a lot of these you see around, look none too safe. Although unless you know what you are doing I don't advise doing the same.

However I have seen one, in the past, with a ground spike, which is ideal for safety purposes and wondered if anyone else had come across these.

Adding a Ground or earth spike to system, in some cases is a good thing, and in some a bad thing, it depends what the system earthing in use at the campsite is.
For that reason unless you a qualified Spark and Know the earth system in use at the camp site, I would advise you to steer clear of ehu's with a ground/earth spike
