I'm tempted by the mats as they're 5cm thick (same as other more expensive makes. Were they offered last year and, if so, are they worth the money? We ordered Fat Airics but they're out of stock and I must admit I'm tempted by something a quarter of the price (as long as it's not only a quarter as good!)

Forgive me for sounding simple but with the electric cool box do you keep it plugged into the cig lighter all the time?

Thanks Lisa

I've got the storage tower and it's fab, going to buy the shorter unit. We also have the clothes drier which is also very good. It takes up very little space and you can get a fair amount drying on it.

Anyone had one of their tents before.

I have 2 sets of friends thinking about getting a tent in next few weeks, and I thought this one seemed ok, especially for the price.

Any got any experience??

Thanks.

No, it will flat the car battery within hours. You need to be able to plug it into an EHU to make this sort of thing worthwhile. It's fine to plug it into the cig lighter when the car is on the move of course.

Lidl did a very similar coolbox last year that came with both a 12v and a mains plug. Much better idea.

I got one last year and though Son says it's very comfortable, it's quite bulky when rolled up compared to say my Hubby's Karrimore mat.
