    Our first van was an ambulance conversion.

    its a multi topic program but they keep going back to it, typical TV trying too hard to get too much into an hour

    13k.....hellfire that was not cheap

    wouldnt want to be in it in anything other than mid summer temperatures....single skin grp roof....6 peeps and a dog....loads of condensation...and the kids would have out grown the beds in a few years

    although it did look nice...

    The egg was intriguing though:BigGrin:

    Did you see where the bedding came from / went to?

    Nice looking thing , but as you say summer only,

    Absolutely, we spent just under 3k on ours. It had double skin, insulated and a diesel fuelled heater and it was still blurry cold in the winter.

    What waste of 13k so much more could have been bought for the same money.

    Did anyone see a toilet of any kind, or did I miss it ?

    Two adults and six kids, that's a lot of black waste in 24 hours.
    They must be planning on staying on campsites all the time, mustn't they ?
    Or maybe not then. :Doh:

    Loved the gas installation!

    Bottle on the inside, in an unsealed compartment. (Not known if there was a drop vent).

    Where were the occupants going to store their kit? The van looked lovely and retro, but to be honest, as a six berth? Nah!

    It did look good like most of you though thought the money could have been spent better, I think it would make an ideal van for going to the beach for the day and possibly staying the night but no way would I use it for a main holiday. The time it took me to drive to Dover it would be time to come home :Rofl1::Rofl1:
