Renault Trafic conversion was finished 18 months ago and has being used for a few holidays since.

The application to change to logbook to a Motor Caravan has a few pictures of the conversion completed.

Update 2016

The Fiat was sold last September (2015) as it was being under utilised. It was a great van, but in reality we generally only needed it for day trips, so onwards to the next project.

New Project

The new van will be very much a day van, which can go anywhere a car can.
The base vehicle is a 2005 SWB Renault Trafic.

Watch this space!

Looking at the blog, I suddenly realised I hadn't posted for months....
Well, the relay has been sold and a fiat Ducato has been built to replace it. Basically the same van, again with a leisuredrive roof, but a different layout, some pictures follow:

Double swivel seat

A few pics of a concept I was working on, a double seat from a VW T5 with an added swivel, does have room to turn 180 degrees.
But the seat is rather narrow and not the comfiest, and compromises my new design too much, so won't be using it normally, but may keep it for use when an additional passenger is required.
Seat is bolted down for travelling and a couple of eye bolts are undone to allow it to swivel on site.
Unfortunately there aren't any decent photo's and it's now jammed into the shed....
 But here's a picture from the rear.

and a bad picture of the framework.

Not to be bothered about selling it, but would swap for a standard double seat from a Relay, Ducato or Boxer (2002-06 models)

Latest pictures April 2013

Pictures taken ready for selling in the next few weeks, as my new van shouldn't take me too much longer now that we are in BST!

12 months MOT and will be looking for £4000 ono
