We managed to park nearby so went back to the camper for hot chocolate and coffee at the half time break...it was a bit nippy stood out!
1998 Citroen Dispatch campervan, 1.9 turbo diesel, taxed to end of September, tested November 2010, power steering, CD player, immobiliser, 5 speed.
Converted last year, 5 seater, rear seat folds down into double bed. Fully insulated, sink, tap, portaloo, big leisure battery, 240v inverter, electric oven/grill, hook up, new towbar.
Odometer not working, but reputedly done about 130k, good starter and runs well, doesn't smoke, gears and clutch good, but 5th gear syncro a bit weak.
Built as day van for going to track/race days (1300kg towing capacity), but priorities have now changed...
I've also taken a video of the inside, not very good quality, it was done on my iphone, and is a bit shaky!
Hopefully the insurance certificate will come in the next couple of days, so I'll be able to put 6 months tax on it. I could do with the van going this week if possible, another project is on the way....

Tax runs out at the end of the month
The Dispatch MOT expires in November, but I've now done the CV gaiter and changed the front tyre, which were the only issues that were a concern.
Looking for £1750, but would p/x. Decided that it needs to be high roof FWD, so it's either a Boxer/Relay/Ducato MWB or possible SWB (if there are any high roof ones about) or Movano/Master SWB or MWB.

It must one of the few dispatch vans with all locks actually working properly, lol.
I've left the immobiliser on, so the old key fob is still needed to disable it, nice security feature.
The drivers side CV gaiter had split, so I've replaced that, after some cursing...
I've picked up a set of Sedona leather seats, but will probably not fit them, as I'm thinking of selling the van, to move onto another larger project. So, I'd be interested in a swap or p/x for a SWB Relay/Boxer/Ducato, high roof would be nice, for a bit of extra space.
For sale on Preloved.

Initially I'll put them in fixed, and see how we get on, swivels may come later.
Now to get the brackets made...

Wired in, just need to make a panel section inside the cupboard to tidy up all the wiring.
The van wouldn't start - the auto sensor must have been set too low, so have adjusted it a bit higher. I need to get a small solar panel just to keep the batteries topped up, the inverter circuitry causes a small drain
Portable gas burner arrived, looks a handy piece of kit and a fire extinguisher just in case.

Some more detailed pictures of inside kitchen unit. Fresh and waste water bottle now connected up. I will put in a bit more panelling to tidy it up :)
Rear view of double bed made up from middle row of seats and rear bench. Demensions are about 6' 6" by 3' 6", so OK as a small double.
Seating set up for 6, with 2 full three point and 1 lap in both the front and middle.
The middle seats can be pushed forward and folded down and the front seats inclined to give a rear facing bench. When middle seats are fully forward they can be reclined fully back to make up the bed.
