    Hi Everyone

    Been recommened the site from my old man (Muz)

    We have (actually mostly the Mrs) just converted an Iveco into a MH and thought we'd join the community!!

    Although its not 100% finished we have been using the MH for trips around the UK and hopefully will get to EU in november

    We decided to comvert the Van as we couldnt warrant spending all that dough that the coachbuilt MH's go for

    A bit of info what weve done on the Vehicle conversion:

    2002 Iveco Daily 35s11 2.8td xlwb with H2 roof
    Max 3.5t (as the Mrs has to drive it!!!)

    Fully Insulated with TRI ISO Siper 10 + Xtratherm 25mm to Floor Walls and Celing - Covered with MH Wall Board

    5 x Seitz Cassette type windows + 3 x Mini Heki Sky lights + 1 x Fiamma Turbo Vent

    Tanks under body - 120 + 80 ltr Fresh Water, 89ltr Grey and 69ltr Black running into a 3" RV Dump

    At the front
    Van Seats removed replaced with BMW X5 seats on custom swivel frames incorp Leisure Batteries Charger, 12 Disc Changer etc

    Through the Side Door
    1 x 6ft o/s + 1 x 3ft n/s (extending to 6ft) Lounge converts into 2 single or 1 Super King Size bed
    Mid Kitchen with 103ltr Fridge, Full Oven with 3 gas + 1 electric ring, Covered Sink, Truma water heater, full kitchen with overhead cupboards.
    End Bathroom with Thetford Aquamagic V RV style toilet (into Tank), Full 120cmx80cm Shower tray with Reich shower, Washbasin and under cupboard, Large wardrobe for clothes

    Through the Back Doors (That should get some hits from the specialist searches!!!!)
    As you can never get a good seal of the back doors we have left a 1 1/2 foot space before the Bathroom wall so the inside stays warm - this is also good for the stuff you carry around + Gas bottles etc

    I will try and get the pickys uploaded in the near future and the detailed specs etc

    Just before i go I would like to thank a few folks that have helped us with our Dream (in no particular order):

    * CARAVAN FURNISHING WHITBY, CARAVAN UPHOLSTERY CUSHIONS - Thanks Dean and Caz for all your help and the wonderful cushions
    * Magnum Motorhome Surplus of Grimsby - Thanks guys for all your advice and New Stuff for the Van!!!
    * Oleary motorhomes of Beverley - Great guys""
    * The Mrs - for workng like a good un
    * Dad for all his input advice funds and marriage conselling!! + the free towcar!!!
    * Mum for Dog sitting while we were working on the Van
    * Understanding Neighbours who didnt moan at us working late

    * Rainbow conversions - Dont beleive what you tell them when something they have supplied is wrong - p***ing idiots!!!!
    * Brownhills for being utter .....!!!
    * DHL for losing our Cooker!!!
    * The RAC for leaving us stranded on the A17 when we broke down because we were 40cm too long eventhough it was a snapped Fan belt!!!
