What Happened?
« on: April 15, 2015, 09:14:32 PM »
I get stuck into the van rebuild for a week or so and come back here to see who's missed me and it's all come to a standstill. What happened?

Ok to get things rolling again I propose we all post a pic of our vans inside and out, mine will go up tomorrow (coz I left my camera in the workshop) and I can't do it now.

C'mon peeps keep it lit

I'm ere!

How about this for a 10 bike rack.  Can fit the his n hers bike on, no probs.




Anybody used the Royan, France ferry, would cut out a 200 klm ride. Priced about 45 for a camping car.

Depends on what you want to use it for. Travelling/living/ or just short trips.
How many peeps are you going to be ferrying about?

Probably living. It will most likely just be me and maybe a couple of mates

Cheaper to run a van. Stealth mode and lower insurance.

Hi,
Just like to add, As Tai-chi wanderer said a stealth mode van can have you parking anywhere. I left UK 2010 in a Sprinter, see pic, which was good at the time as a sole nomad.
However if there are to be couple of mates. You'll have the problem I got when I was no longer on my own.

Went for a box van, see pic, this gives option of water tanks under the floor (LPG tank when I get the )
Being a square box easy to fit out. I refit my UK sprinter twice!
I keep't looking till I found one made of GRP & foam walls Ali box frame. It's a left hand drive & has a German green sticker.
Looking to put some horse stuff on the sides for the Stealth mode!
So good luck & good hunting.
