I've already jumped ahead and asked for advice before posting my 'hello' and I was advised well so im already a happy member of this forum and look forward to the day i will be able to return the day im the one helping others.
I have a 65 plate l/w/b semi hi roof which im in the process of making a camper for the fishing. I took the bulk head out put sound deadening on every section Ford didn't then added insulation put plywood over the sides and roof added led lights on the roof and done the stretch carpet all over, i kept the original floor but added insulation then on top i put click flooring down built a full size frame for a double mattress and installed a night heater and some units for storage. I don't see me stopping work on the inside anytime soon as there is so much you can do ie sink stove shower toilet and on it goes but as it stands just now its luxury compared to the tent I was using before lol. I'd like to post some pics of it i just have to find out where to do that.
