Rear sliding tray from Calicap. It’s the 710mm deep version that fits the 6.1 with lounge bed. I like the fact it’s full width and they fit a non slip liner.37ED43BE-342A-4551-A70F-AB1FA07E4AB3.png

We have a Sunset and Savannah, great chairs. Just purchased two Helinox air and foam headrest which are also very good.
Are they the sort of chairs you can really lounge on and have a doze? The VW ones are far too upright for me and our really comfy camping chairs take up so much room. Be grateful to know what you think.

I've always regarded these things as the work of the devil so I'm not looking forward to the emptying aspect at all. We did have one in our first Cali for dire emergencies only. We sold that one unused, mint and boxed. But things have changed in the last six months and this one will get used I'm sure.
Emptying is easy peasy, it's one of those jobs where you have to just bite the bullet and just get on with.

With suitable care, you can do this without splashes and without contact with any of the "material".
Bad smells can be eliminated by using appropriate chemicals (e.g. Thetford Aquachem (other brands are available)).
Best results are achieved by emptying long before the "full" sign comes on.

Bought this nice little LED camping light (coke can for size reference). It has a clip underneath to hang it up.

Output either white light (2 brightness settings) or red light. USB charge, or even hand turn, 1 min turning = 4 minutes light.

£11.99 from Decathlon.

Nice. Does it have magnets underneath so you can go all Starsky and Hutch if the need arises?

Haha, unfortunately not. It does however have a plastic clip to hang it, e.g. in the awning

Hi @McGoogly, we like them a !ot. To be honest they will never be as comfortable as a reclining chair but we always expected that before we got them. We have also got the inflatable Helinox cushions which are a great addition. They are extremely lightweight and pack away nice and small. We are currently on a 6 week trip around the Greek Islands (without the van) and have them with us. We've had a few people ask about them, especially those laying uncomfortably on towels. So, more than comfortable around the van, smal! enough that they don't get in the way and light enough to carry around.

For the beach as in seaside or as in Cali? :D Edited: seems you have a Coast. Like the look of those but too low me.
I thought there is no way I could get out of one of those, I would need to crawl forward:cool:

Well, I have small legs ...not that small, but the Helinox seemed too high seated for me. Lucky my knees are still in good condition ;)

New Starter Battery, 6 yrs old and almost 100,000 miles, and daily driver.
Which battery did you buy?
Mine seems to be ready for changing. I am looking on the Tayna website ATM. I have this one in at the moment.
Seems like it may be a Varta F21 will do the job.

A bit pricier than the usual ziplock plastic bag but hopefully a bit more sturdy for those inevitable swims whilst messing about on the water ⛵
