EHU input 90* plug sought

My new purchase (OK its actually a caravan but please dont send the men in white coats JUST yet ) has the EHU input point on the nearside so its on the awning side. My current EHU female plug is straight, so that means the lead etc "sticks out" and I can foresee it getting caught by someone (who may at the time be "over refreshed") and being damaged, especially when on EHU at home, the driveway isnt that wide!!
I am sure I have seen an input plug that turns through 90 degrees so the lead hangs straight down and the plug doesnt project so far out from the side. It may well have been whilst on the continent, but my memory isnt that accurate.
So does anyone know where I can purchased such an item please?? I have spent a while with Mr Google and he doesnt seem to be able to find one either.

Thanks in advance

Andy

Its not the destination that matters.

It's who you share the journey with (even if itís in a caravan!) I am very fortunate to have Mrs Plodd to share mine with

Towsure do this one which also has a Continental 2 pin output . It would be easy to seal the 2 pins cover shut if you never wanted to use it

Mr Plodd wanted a female plug to go at the van end of the hook up lead.

Thanks everyone for your help and assistance.

Order now placed for the Towsure item, just under a tenner delivered so a fair bit cheaper than many others. Maybe I have some Scottish (or Yorkshire?) DNA in me ??

Mr Plods requirement

Hi Mr Plod, I first saw that exact plug at a motor bike rally in Osnabruke (Germany).

In Holland they were about 15 Euros, I got that very one from Towsure a year or so back and it works well, lift the flap and I can plug mates Hymer in as well
