Just wondering what people’s opinions are about these. Anyone have one and tried it in there van overnight
Worth the time and money?

JML...as seen on tv? They are a humidifier though, more damp air in the van to help it rust?

In Egypt sacking is hung over the windows and drip fed with water - it is very effective at cooling the room, same principle as a wet tea cloth over your milk container when camping. Admittedly not a good idea for a steel box though.
