Just brought a new van. I'm a carpenter so my van has to predominantly be for work use.. But I'm going to insulate it, stick a leisure battery hooked up to the alternator in, build a removable kitchen unit, throw in some LED lighting and make it a bit more homely than it is now. I love the short times I get to spend dirt bagging for a week or weekend and although I know how I'm going to configure mine I'm looking for someone to give me the phyce to pull my finger out and get working on it.
So come on, show us yer home on wheels

Go on then. I bought this about a year ago to convert to a camper. Although. admittedly, I haven't got round to actually doing the work yet...

Assuming that's for real, what is the fuel consumption like? Can you drive it on a normal licence?

Fuel is surprisingly good. (OK, that's stretching it but it's all relative!) About 17mpg on a good run without water.

Class 2 as standard but can easily be downgraded to 7.5 tonne so, depending on when you took your test, yes.

And, yes. It is for real.

I once hitched a lift with a German family travelling in a converted fire truck! They did a great job too! All the best for your project!

It is rather beautiful isn't it?

As a commissioned professional conversion it must have cost an absolute fortune - lovely simple rustic living for people with a *huge* pile of cash to spend! ;-)

It's like my boat - only shorter, more rustic and on wheels.
