This is cheap, end of the season sell I would think, the £5.95 postage spoils it a bit but if you live near Towsure you quids in. If you can find cheaper post it so other people can benefit, dint stick in comments.

Agree. Recently been trying to buy one and you struggle to build one for under £40. HEAT added
£5.95 delivery makes it £35.90 ?
If these are to connect to the mains at a uk campsite, I would think it would be illegal for any uk campsite to provide an electrical supply without a rcd, so this should be unnecessary.
A single pluggable rcd is only about £6 anyway

i think you will find this is necessary.

You may also be interested in a 25m extension cable for these from Wilkinson Plus - currently half price at £20.
Heat added good price even with delivery :-)
Superb price - paid £40 for mine 2 years back which I thought was a good price at the time.
excellent find just bought one for a lot more than that
heat added op
Good price, but I've a feeling old stock. If you plug anything bulky in, like a phone charger, it stops the flaps opening on other outlets... I think I've seen newer ones with the outlets rotated 90 degrees so you can actually use more than one socket...
Having looked at the thing, the rcd's in the wrong place (the wiring to the extension should be protected) if there's no rdc on the supply (which there should be anyway) and if there _is_ a 30ma rcd on the supply then the rcd in the extension is unnecessary anyway.
Good price.
Jasee i think i would rather pay a few quid more and get one with a RCD built in,
some of these campsites are dodgy to say the least so how do i know they have stuck to the regulations.

It's easy to test to see if they have one (not necessarily the 30ma one which they should have here) if you know what you're doing. :-)
You're probably right to be cautious.
Just remember you're only protecting the connecting sockets in the three gang adapter. The cable to the sockets is not protected.
Wouldn't it be cheaper and easier just to stay in a B&B?

What a strange comment...

Easier......perhaps
Cheaper...definitely not
More fun.....absolutely not

Just come home from a 7 day holiday on a small site with my parents - they stayed in a cottage and me, my wife and children all stayed in our touring caravan on the same site. We paid £140 for 5 of us, they paid £400 for two - and the site we stayed on was at the top of the price range for small sites (IMHO).

Definitely is cheaper. How much does a caravan cost to buy? They ain't cheap. Plus you've got to drag it around which means you need a big car with a big engine, it takes forever to get anywhere and everyone hates you because you cause tailbacks for **** miles. Sounds like loads of fun.

We probably spend about £1-2K a year for a family of 5 on holidays including spending money. I bet it costs upwards of £15K for a decent caravan plus your site rental, fuel, equipment, maintenance. It's stupid money.

Same goes for camping, all that equipment costs a fortune.

Just stay in a B&B, hotel or static caravan, it's cheaper, nicer and more comfortable.

Woah! Just had a look, £15K is cheap, more like £23K. Yikes! No thanks.
