    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    I lived in a caravan for a while and would suggest you make sure it's well insulated and water tight.

    Spent a very cold winter in an uninsulated caravan. The thermometer inside got to -12C.

    Dehumidifier. Use it often. They sweat. (Caravans and ten yr olds)

    Aluminium is a very effective conductor.
