No Prices, you ring with the model of your fridge, should be a label inside the body of it, and ask which would be the best fit, no prices as people kept undercutting them so it's POA now.

I had a burner problem and chimney too, I cured it with a new jet, which is basically just a tiny indented disk with a hole in it, the old one was fine, I got some fishing line and tied a small nut onto it and ran it up and down the chimney until it stopped throwing rust onto some white paper below is, cured it long enough to use it til I sold it on.

OíBrien has had a cheap reputation for any years, they used to sell from a large marquee at virtually every show with the sort of gimmicks that most did not want eg plastic twin tub washing machine for MH (£30 ?) as well as old surplus stock from virtually every UK based MH converter.

If you wanted a rear light cluster for a 1995 Swift, have a look through the box there mate, you would probably find something very similar.

We bought a camping fridge 12v, gas, or 240v looked as ugly as sin, obviously from a cheap sited tent type establishment. Cost us £25 and lasted 20+ years before the lid hinges died.

So, check carefully as their guarantees are not always easy to work with, but they do have cheap replacement parts assuming they have what you want.

Not surprised if the website looked to be about 1995, the marquee always looked that way too...

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Yes guarantees can be strange, a local scrapyard owner when asked if a purchased engine was guaranteed he gruffly replied, “yeah I guarantee if it doesn’t work it’s fecked.”
