    Hi all,
    My name is Caroline, 37 years old, I'm based in Lincolnshire and I have a converted talbot express freeway bus. I've only owned it for about 8 months, but so far have travelled a bit in it. Last summer we spent almost 4 weeks touring Scotland in her, a fair amount of that was wild camping, and we loved it. Now I've done some travelling in her I know how I want the interior to be and will be gutting her and starting again soon. The current set up is OK, but could be much better with more permanent fixtures added. I'll be posting on the forum with advice on how to do things as I have to keep costs down!
    Thanks for reading this.
    Caroline

    hi Caroline,

    welcome to the FUN.:BigGrin:

    looks a nice bus and i'm sure it will be even better when you re-fit it as you want.
    there's a few of selfbuilders on here so i'm sure you'll get plenty of advise.

    pop into the chat room and speak to WILDMAN (Roger), he's there most evenings.

    you have the advantage with the tag axle so weight wont be too much of a hold back.:thumb:.

    you'll be needing a smaller seat or a bigger driver though.:Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Hi,

    The pics were taken in Lincolnshire, (that'll be the flat ones), and Scotland. Various locations in Scotland as we went up the East, along the top and back down the West with some bits in the middle!

    Hi and welcome.
    It seems by the awning picture that our paths have crossed before.
    Was it June or August?????
