We have just spent the last few days at a very windy but warm Cabo de Gata. At the moment it is blowing a gale: this afternoon it is forecast to get worse. We are facing into the wind.

Thanks to the infamous Hartal door strut we are unable to have the door open or any rooftop or side windows. The overcab roof light is the only means of ventilation we have and it has performed magnificently. It has been completely firm, no rattles, no suggestion that it could be ripped open and a steady stream of cooler air funnelled inside. 

We have had our problems with the blind on this rooflight refusing to close and with the protruding studs but, at the moment, it is more than earning its keep and doing its job very well. We've always liked the light feel it gives to the van but have always been wary of it in wind. No longer. Worth every bit of lost storage space !

Must be really windy if you can't open the cab door windows a bit.

We want ventilation Pete, not a van full of salty sand. The advantage of the overcab rooflight is that the sand in the wind seems to go right over the top of the van and we get cleaner air inside. Judging by the colour of the cab seat backs when the cab windows are open, even a small amount, this does not happen and salty sand gets in and engraves itself in the upholstery.

It is very, very windy. 

For Domestic read Dometic:  I should have proof read it before posting !
