Notice some good gear coming up again, WED 30th March has recovery gear, which is quite good, a 400w invertor good for laptop charging and on Sat 2nd April what I have been waiting for Canvas storage Bags @ $20, they are certainly better quality than the Kings and others I have seen, cordless bug zappers and a 160w solar panel, I know the panels are good mine is getting on to 5 yrs old I reckon, of course chuck the regulator, even have a 100ah lithium battery, I wonder how good that will be, spotting scope and a spy cam.

I wish I hadn't seen that aldi advert! I'm trying to abstain from buying stuff and this comes along. I have that little bug zapper and use it a lot in the caravan at night.

Any ideas on how to find the specs on that 100ah battery?

thanks for the heads up @Drover. I wouldn’t mind some of these canvas bags, I don’t know what for yet but I am sure I can find a use.

I Googled the same thing but missed seeing these informative reviews, most interesting, most reviews being Yank I turn off early as they drive me nuts but these were done well, learnt some stuff and was quite happy that he had the same views regarding charging, usage, blutooth and AGM/Lithium compar's...... I think I will go AGMs next ............ Don't want to gamble my hard earned and I can't afford better quality Lithiums..... Good find @jazzeddie1234

Caravan cover , Awning front wall and end wall screens, wide anti flap clamps, annex mat, alloy folding step, 32" 12v TV and other goodies including a 100ah AGM battery and a10-15amp adaptor with RCBO......................
The awning screens and floor are very good value and quality, the step is great and mine are all lasting well ........................ what will turn up of course is another thing and not all states are the same...........

Thanks! I need to replace my privacy screen as the old one fell apart.

I have those wide deflappers but they only lasted one trip. They don't grip the awning that well because the pivot point slowly deforms. In the end I gave up and returned to my trusty strap that runs from end to end and ties down on the angled side arms

The end privacy screen from Aldi was a rectangle shape, I was hoping for one that had an angle shape at the top to suit the shape when the awning is out ie. to connect to the Aussie Traveller Anti-flap kit. I do not think Aldi make the shape I want but otherwise the one I bought is a couple of years old and works fine.
