Camper Himmel (in German):
A German company but they will ship to the UK. I ordered some ventilation grids from them. Excellent service and excellent product. Well worth considering if you want ventilation and you don’t want to cut a hole in your van.

Cookers and cool boxes:
Not sure if 4 stars is justified as the Origo 1500 I bought is really well made. I may change this to five stars later on. I gave it 4 stars after testing as it did leave black sooting on the pot I used and it did smell a lot, but this may be due to the marine fuel I used, which was designed for this cooker. So… the four stars may not be directly linked to the product but more to the fuel used… further testing required.
