    We have 3 large dogs which could rise to 4 next year, we had hoped initially to pick up a camper for around 4,000. I now realise that's easier said than done, we now accept we will have to go to around 10,000. After some serious research it seems our best option is a motocross camper. Is there a motocross forum type place where i will find this type of van for sale? This is the type of van/layout i am looking for although i'd like to also have a shower and don't mind losing some space in the back to accomodate one.

    Merc Sprinters seem to be the most common base vehicle for these conversions.

    A mate did exactly the same.

    It might be worth posting useful links for obtaining advice and materials on here.:thumb:

    I'm all for the "Hands-on" approach to motorhoming because you can build a vehicle to your own spec and requirements.:Cool:

    O'leary Motorhomes seem to cater for a lot of Self build parts.

    Good Luck and Happy Converting.:BigGrin:

    Hi there are loads for sale on Ebay :thumb: some are not a lot more than the price of the van :Rofl1: If you are handy you can pick up one that is a shed inside with everything in it, rip it out and do it properly for about -say- £1000-- and your labour.Sprinters are used for there length along side Iveco's and vw.
