Hello all, , well I've just put a deposit on a Marco Polo. I do a lot of running and was hoping to get something to make them more enjoyable, the night before, recover and such like. I fell in love with the Marco Polo even though i know a few with VW's and such like,

However some things i don't know, or have only really just thought about.

Hot water? is there an option for a water heater ? ( i believe the 2019 Marco Polo has a night air heater )

Also is there an inverter fitted to power laptops etc, without mains hook up. ?

Thanks you in advance

I guess it depends on what you are looking for. Assuming no hook up, you can get some rechargeable powerbanks that will recharge a laptop a number of times, and you can boil a kettle quite easily.
There is generally a way around most things.

Personally, I'm on a laptop 10-12 hours a day so when I go away in the MP it is so good to not take it! Nothing like a tech detox and I've not missed it yet :)

I use a belkin type c car charger to power my macbook (or any laptop uses type c connector), no need inverter, slow charging tho.

I do a lot of trial running, somtimes quite long, so was hoping to get a shower ;) yes I know I could get a bigger camper, but they are less practical. I do love a digital detox.. but then again,

We use Kampa Geyser hot water system for off grid camping, fantastic, requires 12v cigarette lighter socket and LPG. Tried to upload picture but too large?! JustKampers have them at £150

If you are on electric hook-up, can you use the main socket (with a three pin adapter) at the console by the side of the sink near the passenger seat to run a laptop? I haven't tried yet as I've only had my MP a few weeks and only been away once so far.

From another runner :)

I use a lavolta car charger for my mscbook air, just plugs into any 12v socket,

I use baby wipes for post race wipe-down :) Wait until I find a hot shower source before progressing to anything more advanced.

Most of the time, like Sunday (Cardiff 10k) I'm off-grid so only 12v available and limited water supply.
