I like Stu's reply the best!

The tourer used to get ROASTING, what we did was place a large bowl of cold water in front of a fan and let it blow all day-it freshsens the air a treat!

Mum and dad have a similar type of fan/cooling thingy in their van like this:

Apart from opening the velux roof windows in Bala more often than not it was windy as we were quiet high up. We are taking our Air conditioning unit with us to the new site. It is very effective as well. I wont have the velux windows open in the bedroom as I dont want crawlies sharing my bed.

Speaking of crawlies, has anyone come up with a decent looking method of putting up some kind of mesh at some of the windows, so they can be left open without worrying about wandering around with the fly swat for an hour or two!

Cut to size or ready cut, velcro fastening.... Ooo! Black is more see through than white as well!

We didn't have the deck last year, so could only have the door(s) open if we were sitting outside and had the dog on her long lead with us (long lead fastened round the storage box). Don't just open all the windows to try to cool things down - assuming there is a touch of breeze (if there is absolutely NO breeze, it's going to be HOT unless you have a fan!), open windows to allow the breeze to blow through the van, but leave the others closed and preferably covered. It's also helpful to cover windows that are in full sun (so close blinds or curtains). If you're lucky enough to have opening roof-lights, open them - hot air rises so they really make a difference (the one thing I miss from the tourer is the big opening roof-lights!).

Well, I have never had to think about this. Take today for example. Northamptonshire - 26 degrees, a bit hazy but hot. Cromer - Thick fog. Darent even look to see what the temperature is. We are up this weekend. Do I take t shirts or a down coat?
