She’s big and grey like an elephant and so, we reasoned, our van’s name ought to be “Nellie”. As in Nellie the Elephant? Ok, it works for us.

A solar panel on the roof of your camper van can dramatically increase your independence. In the summer months, the right size and quality of panel will produce sufficient amps to run your fridge, lights and water pump without the need to plug into 230v mains power or drive the vehicle to recharge the leisure battery.
