Excellent. Have just ordered one from Lidl over here - cost 28.94 ( approx £24.06) which includes postage so not bad. Now at least the OH and I can enjoy something of a warm, if not hot, Christmas whilst easting our Pigeon legs. Time to celebrate me thinks.

Oh this oil filled radiator will get used in the awning, Amanda.
The site we've booked with for the summer hols only supplies 10A and our current 2KW blow hot air all around type heater (if used) will suck approximately 8.7 of those precious amps.
At 600 Watts, the oil jobbie is ideal as it only draws a maximum of 2.61Amps which means we don't have to decide between warm feet or a warm drink in our bellies - we can have both yippeeee. In addition, the oil radiator should be quiet unlike the fan heater which whilst not loud noisy does get on your pip after a while.
At night if it's cold, and in the UK as you know, anything can happen, we can move the oil filled radiator indoors with us. I don't like gas all that much if the truth be known - it's alright for short bursts to take the chill off but leaving it on for any protracted period dries the air out too much for my liking.
We'll also be buying a few bottles of Glühwein (delicious mulled German wine) at this weekends Christmas market and bringing a couple of bottles over with us for those nippy September nights. Being ex Navy no doubt there will also be a bottle of Pussers Rum tucked away somewhere.

Nope. Our cable reel has 3 x CEE sockets and from one of these the feed cable to the van will be taken. It's a 2 metre long feed cable so long enough for the cable reel to hide away under the van.
From another cable reel CEE outlet we'll run an extension lead - outdoor type and trip protected - from which we'll connect up the oil-filled radiator.
