    personal opinion from someone who wouldnt know how to start building a self build

    If the vehicle is trouble free and you can remodel it yourself then do it yourself.

    You will end up with EXACT layout you want, built to your quality standard and there is always the extra satisfaction of looking at a completed job that is the result of all your own work.

    Oh yes, and you will save a fortune especially as you could always sell your previous interior as it may well suit another less experienced self builder.

    Good luck with whatever you decide

    if the van is a good base and your happy with it

    then a rebuild is the way forward

    you know the van all the expensive bits are there

    not nescacerilly in the right place granted

    toilet door can become a storage locker

    and you know what they say

    a self build is never finished just between adjustments

    if you built it yourself, as opposed to buying it ready built, then you know how it went together and where everything is so should be no problem dismantling it.

    commercially built motorhomes have so many hidden furniture fixings and nobody knows where the water, gas and electric cable runs are hidden so can be a daunting task
