If anyone has any of the following items going spare, I'd be happy to pay cash (at the right prices), or do a deal for an online backup account or a discounted / free PC repair.

Camping stove... the kind with double ring and a grill. Ideally one that runs on the smaller canisters of gas, but would be okay if it uses LPG if it comes wityh a bottle and regulator (we don't mind having it refilled)

Single sleeping bags - 3 needed in total

Air beds to sleep 5 - either all singles or 2 doubles and a single would work etc.

A rechargeable latern for lighting up a big tent - ideally that can be recharged from a cigarette lighter socket in a car.

Lightweight folding camping table

Can anyone help?

I have now learned that the stoves all use either a 901, 904 or 907 gas bottle. So if anyone has an empty one of these i might be interested too please.

I know this isn't rechargable mate, but I can highly recommend one of these:

LED Light

Takes two or three AAA's and lasts for ages. Get a set of Ni-Mh rechargables in it and it does a great job - I have one.

Cheers for the thought, but looking more for something with a handle that can either be hung in the tent, or carried for a beach walk at night :) :up:

I've just been googling and it appears I'd be cheaper (for refill purposes) getting hold of something like a 4.5Kg butane or calor gas type cylinder. Aparently they can be safely used with camping stoves as long as a low pressure regulator is used.

Does anyone have any knowledge on this? A 2.8Kg capinggaz refill is set to cost me £20 each time, whereas I know a place that is likely to only charge me about £6 for a 4.5kg refill as above. ;)

Oooh just an idea try putting an ad in the Londis of the RAF camp, all my camping stuff is ex army and very good quality, the other half’s dad is in the army and he had a shed full of camping stuff that he had 'acquired' over the years that we took of his hands.
You havent lived till you've had army issue boil in the bag treacle pudding yum yum!

Possibly interested vicky. How many single sleeping bags? Size of airbed? How much were you looking for?
Wouldn't be interested in the single camping bed though as we just want air beds

How big a table are you looking for chap? I may have a small foldable one I'm willing to part with for a token sum if you're interested.

Hi Vicky.
Thanks for that, but we've sorted pretty much everything out now. My wife spotted those on FB last night... we'd have had them if you'd listed them a couple of weeks ago.

Cheers anyway
