We have wooden decking, which was added for us as part of the incentive to buy. We had to add thin strips of woods between the gaps in the board to stop things falling through, but otherwise we are happy with it. We have stained it green to match the van and need to presently give it a coat after the weathering of a Lake District Winter. I suppose that is the big advantage of UPVC decking, not having the maintenance, but we were glad we didn't have to find the extra cash when we first bought.

I hope you never attempt to keep up with the Joneses! If I had that much money, I would be investing in bricks and mortar.

We have wooden decking. I would personally have liked it a bit bigger but it came with the van so we got what we got - though we can extend it and it is on our "jobs to do " list. Not sure of the exact measurements but it's around 12ft x 14ft, we will change it so we have a "walk way" down the side to the other door.
As my van is green I may stain it green so that it blends in - that's the Royal "we" ie Mr Tractions job lol. I'm happy with the wood as we are in the countryside surrounded by trees so I think it fits in really well. We have also been told we are ok to build a decking platform down at the bottom near the river bank (we have steps leading to the river) so that's another job on the list - Mr Traction gonna be busy

My John is build our decking next week. I would love glass balustrade for the front to act as a windbrake but I cant justify the money so we're just keeping it open at the moment till I can manage to source at a price we can afford.

We are only allowed metal decking on our site. They had a bad experience with upvc apparently.
The preferred supplier is Marche industries. They do look nice I must admit.
