    Many Rapido owners will recognise the STUPID one piece full length drawer front.
    I saw this Idea on Campingcarrapido French forum. I just had to do it :Laughing:
    I did this early last year.

    That just makes it worse, brave or bonkers, not sure but you definitely must have bigger balls than me

    Not much Jay I've had it over a year now and still find stuff to change.
    I'm fitting the 230volt awning kit this week I hope and just done the DLR's today :thumb:
    Lots of arguments against but I don't care what they say
    £60 well spent. Those cab blinds are new too, the original were horizontal and sh1t

    That shelf looks really useful. Where did you find the matching wood piece?

    Very impressed with all you have acheived. You should host masterclasses.

    Nice one Techno! A man after my own heart!!! :thumb:

    I always do stuff to my vans, apart from the self-build I did, the first 'major' jobs I did to a manufacturer produced MH were to our Rapido 709F where I fixed a bike rack on to it (no fixing points incorporated in them then!) ... hubby nearly had kittens when I started to drill (he's a worrier!). Then I 'attacked' the roof vents - I had to completely replace them as I couldn't get just the clear 'glass' to replaced the smoked ones. This was followed by fitting a Status 530 pole mounted aerial that goes through the roof ... I did this whilst hubby was at work as he'd have had palpitations!!!

    Since then, we've had Rimor and a Chausson MHs, as well as our current PVC, and I've done adaptations in all of them. As with all things you need to know your limitations though - so long as they are done well and with care, are reversible if necessary with minimal 'signs' of them being there in the first place, or improve things without question, then people should NOT attempt them ... there's nothing worse than a MH with loads of bodges in them!
