    Hi, done a lot of camping and a good amount of caravanning. I'm now thinking of building a conversion built on a Iveco Daily LWB.

    I've got a lot of questions I hope the community can advise on, primarily around electrical systems as I want to never be without power - even if it means purchasing multiple 220ah batteries.

    Anyway, this looked the best and busiest forum so I'll no doubt talk to you all soon.

    Welcome, solar panels and batteries the usual choice for off grid power but a genny is the only answer if you need lots of power in the depths of winter, apart from an expensive full cell. All have been fitted by people here.

    Hello and Welcome, there is a self build section on the forum and lots of experience from those who have done it before, to get the best value and to access the forum as you will need the £10 annual membership is well worth it and often the discounts you can get through being in Fun is gained back over and over. Good luck, and I look forward to following your build.

    Ps have a look at the coach Justice has converted gives a idea of the different levels that can be achieved. :welc:
