Student VanLife
« on: November 15, 2018, 04:55:35 PM »
Hello!!!

I am a 22 year old, from Portugal, came to UK to study and my accommodation is expensive as Fu_k!!!
I am planning to start Vanlife.  at the moment in Low budget.
I have a deal on a 2004 LDV 2.4TD LWB Convoy with 58.000miles and semi-converted with a bed, sink (water pump), Leisure battery and wardrobe. For 1300Pounds.

So I want to know some advice if it’s a good deal and I can survive with that for 4 years, or this Ldv´s have problems and at the end I will spend more money compared to UNI accommodation.

Best Regards and sorry for my English…  :P :P

Greetings and Welcome!

Take it to a mechanic for an inspection.

Take it to a car wash to check for leaks.

If both check out okay, go for it.

Cheers!
