New Mains Lead

At the NEC Show I noticed that the new Eribas, and Westfalia campers had a mains hook-up lead with an additional 240v take-off socket at the van end.
I need a new lead and thought this would be a useful feature.
The bloke on the Eriba stand was less than helpful when he realised I wasn't going to buy a new van and the Westfalia rep thought that they were widely available.
Can't find these leads or plugs anywhere.
Can anyone help,....Maybe our overseas members?,....Cheers, chris

I've never seen one with a spur socket incorporated into the cable.

Wouldn't a splitter do the same job?

I think the intention here is that you can run an extension lead (with necessary blue plug of course) to provide power for items in your awning etc. Can't honestly say that I've seen any vans over here with the additional box fitted so sorry, can't be of much help.

We've got one on ours, and they're easy to find, but unless I've got hold of the wrong end of the stick entirely it isn't what the OP was after.

Fitting one requires additional fixed wiring too. A splitter doesn't.
