I met Finn in Hungary whilst helping to build the SUN festival (my first summer on the road) and now he’s a good friend. And he’s just bought a van! He’s been living in it through the winter in England.
Note: I meant to post this 2 months ago. Oops.
So here’s a tour of Finn’s van. It’s a work in progress and he’s slowly adding to it as he goes along.
We were neighbours for a few nights
The van: Renault Master T35 (1994)
He bought it for £1500 semi-converted – with wood burner and units.
It’s where he lives now
It wouldn’t be possible without a log burner
It’s below freezing outside but the burner quickly heats things up
When I saw him he didn’t have electricity
This is the sofa
It extends to make a big double bed
He’s the one who can play
The sink solution is simple, but it works
He has good taste in tables and rugs
This is his writing desk
And then he showed me where he keeps his ladybirds
Now he just needs to pass his driving test
What do you reckon? not bad at all for £1500! He’s already got that back from money he’s saved on rent.
I can’t imagine any other van that would suit Finn. This one is perfect. Hopefully he’ll get some solar panels soon.
