That will keep you busy for a wee while! All it takes is a little imagination and a few quid. There are a few specialist companies out there supplying parts for van conversions so it shouldn't be too hard to get what you need. Still in the middle of restoring my own Talbot Express motorhome, just don't know where the time is going these days.

It's already converted Mike. I'll live with it through winter, then rip it out and start again. The layout is right but a bit dated.

ya done any trips in this jalopy yet Eggs?

Only locally, I've been sorting out bits and pieces. It had a leak in the shower room, the fridge worked on 12v and gas, but wouldn't work on mains electric, I've serviced the engine and got the other bits sorted. Whoever thought it was a good idea to fit the appliances then build the units around them needs a damn good looking at.

 

I can only get 3rd party insurance ATM until I can get an habitation certificate....... Motorhome repair/servicing companies must be busy, I rang three weeks ago and the first booking I could get was the 18th October.
