Braved the weather, went down this weekend and took a look. I see what you mean. The side with the sink/fresh water tank looks like it might be easy to fix, but the other side looks tricky.

Any word from Danbury yet?

ah - yes - heater!! can't decide after looking up heating on this site general view is go for convector as oil filled radiator takes a while to heat up - but maybe not so in our super little babes?!  but then, though noisy,  a fan heater cd double as cool air for summer and is tiny.. not been out in the cold with her.

Lights - came back fine from Danbury - clever adjustment both sides to allow access.  very neat.  they said they're notifying everyone and for people to get it fixed when they're passing... but seeing as they came down for me (and paid for the diesel) think they'd do the same if you asked.  

best wishes

I can't remember how long mine took. I'll have to see how well a little (not so little in a van this small!) 700W radiator works when it gets really cold! My main concern with a convector is how far away from flammable objects it needs to be, what with all the curtains, etc.

Great news...I presume they cut out slots/holes to allow access. I await their call/email/letter...

hey minnysmum - clever you! hope it's great fun

best. lizzy t f


Hi lizzy thanks ! so far all Ive had done re:conversion is the pop-up roof. Im hoping to get a permanent electric hook-up point installed in Jan ( same guy who did the roof ) so I wont have to run the EHU cable out through the side window. Everything else is removable- bed, kitchen unit, etc. I dont have a sink/running water and havent missed it ;or a leisure battery as I usually stay at sites with EHU.

 

Cath

No, apart from the one trip in November. I parked up in Tenby a couple of weeks ago for a night, but no EHU of course so I had to use the diesel heater sparingly and rely on my new hot water bottle

Too much getting in the way (work, etc.) so I haven't been able to book a site with EHU to try it out again I should have tried running it at a low setting during the really cold spell - might have stopped the flush tank in my Thetford Porta Potti, that I'd forgotten to empty, from freezing

Biggest downside? I don't think other motorhomers realize it's a campervan (mine's a high-top, so they probably assume it's an MPV/taxi) and never wave back Either that or all the ones I've waved to have been miserable .


Hi Neil

Remind me to wave at you at our next meet.

Thanks Graham...but remember, we have to be in the vans at the time...even if they're stationary

Have fun!

I'll be away for a couple of nights next week on a business trip (not quite as much fun ) but that was one of the reasons I got the campervan....to make these sorts of trips more enjoyable.

Hopefully I can ditch the oil-filled radiator now...I needed it the last time I was out (January...bbbrrrrr!).
