    For a T25 it's hard to beat the original "seat across the back" design from Westfalia and others. If you have 2 sliding doors, you could just have it so that the drivers door opened and exposed the back of the kitchen units. This will let lots of air through for warm days. Or leave a gap in the kitchen units, behind the drivers seat, so that you can climb through.

    Hi all

    i've just finished a prolonged degree and i have seriously itchy feet. I have purchased an old (1990) transit Lwb Dormobile to convert into a camper as a summer project, hoping to do a bit of travelling in september time. The wheel arches are badly corroded and are stopping it from passing it's mot. what i was wondering was if anyone had come across similiar problems and knew of any welders around the glasgow area that would be able to make a good and cost effective job of the repairs. So as i can move on to the fun part of actually kitting out the inside.

    Thanks everyone

    Hi,

    looking at the prices of coach-built motorhomes, I'm thinking of building my own. However, I need a five or six berth with lots of kiddie space and a roomy washroom/toilet. Can you suggest any suitable donor vehicle without going into the realms of large trucks?

    Regards

    Joe

    Hi Joe

    Do you mean base vehicle, i.e. the vehicle you will do the conversion on and ultimately be left with?

    If so consider a long wheel base van (LWB). Mercedes Sprinter and Iveco Daily seem to be the most popular LWD vans. I've seen a few Ford Transits as well.

    LWB panel vans are easier to drive than trucks.

    Loved the conversion and thank you for taking the time and trouble to share it. Thank you for the tips of your gained expertise and would also like to add, I would not have fully carpeted the floor just in case it got saturated and you have to remove the carpet and was also not happy about the varnished wood above the gas stove, hope you don't ever find out why. Once again - thanks and I am really considering it myself now.

    Hi,

    I'm converting an LDV van into a camper and have a problem with finishing the seating. Does anyone know of a company, based in KENT, that can make and upholster the made to measure seat cushions. It's basically the upholstry of the foam that we need help with.

    Thanks, Jenny

    Hi Darren,

    I am looking to buy either a sprinter or iveco daily as a donor for converting into a camper.

    Do you have a info on sites that sell either bonded or rubber seal windows for these vans, as I am trying to get a cost together for the basic things like power supply, water system, fridge and gas system with cooker. If you knew of a site where I could purchase these items from for a reasonable price it would be greatfully recieved

    Thanks

    Hi Bert

    Great idea!
    A gas fridge is the best for running day-after-day as it's fairly cheap. But you must fit a vent into the side of the car, behind the fridge to vent the burnt gas. Also, they tend to be fairly bit and heavy.
    Electric fridges are smaller and lighter, but the cheap ones use lots of power, the expensive ones use much less power.
