nitrovans put on some weight!! camper conversion progress

Postby nitroman » Sat Mar 07, 2009 1:19 pm

oh well! time for a change, done the reducing weight thing now/racing/blowing off hot hatches and decided to slightly modify my van to have the odd weekend away(cheapo elec fridge/portable stoves & heaters etc) so the plan was not to alter the van too much and have everything removable etc.....so went to local camping suppliers, got the gear £160 (fridge/portable blue cat heater/toilet/portable stove etc) and then.........................

IT ALL WENT TITS UP!

the day after my mates dad offered me his old caravan for £140 had a quick look inside and thought the appliances/sink etc was worth the asking price alone and decided to rip the lot out and see it it will squeeze into the low roof mk6???

so here goes.............
