Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My local LIDL store has a camping sat tv system for sale at 70 euro. I travel Europe, from Ireland, for a few months every summer, in a small campervan (Renault Master) My son tells me not to buy it as I will not be able to tune it at each stop, ie orient the dish, because I travel alone and my tv is fitted inside the van. He said get one that will auto-seek the satellite. Advice please! Frank

Your son is correct. You need at least a motorized satellite system. So that you can regulate the dish with remote on stated coordinates, each time you move.

The best ones are dome satellite systems, where the dish is hidden inside a pod, and can tune with more precision on satellite.

You still won't be able to watch sat while the caravan is moving.

If you want to keep the budget low, just get a motorized system at about £150. Click here to see a wide choice.

Are there any sleeping bag with pillows?

Yes there are, sleeping bag's pillows are made of cotton and designed not to enlarge the original bag in order to be able to carry it as usual. You should visit your local camping store and ask for a sleeping bag with a pillow they got to have one.
