    Hi Mark spotted that about 3/4 days ago and thought of you :Smile: but then I thought of selling come selling time :BigGrin: It's not the best conversion but may be good for your needs :thumb: and as a starter van I would be relutent to tell you to buy a self build simply because you could loose big time :Eeek:
    I must say though I dont think you will be stuck with iy long or loose to much

    As it's a self build
    check it's shown as motor/homecaravan on the log book

    Have a good check of 240 / 12 volt and gas
    looking for a good seal on the fridge rear
    I think waeco fridges from distant memory
    Were not designed for motorhome installation
    Although they are three way fridges
    ( not all but some also check the flue arrangement )

    Most importantly if it isn't tidy looking finish wise
    The inner workings may not be a lot better

    Other than that good luck and hope all is what you require

    JJ likes those Ivecos, but of course that one is definitely the wrong colour for him :BigGrin:.

    Those back doors look a little 'odd', bogged up, or have they been forced open?? Worth a look though.

    It says it is professionally converted.

    That's not a self build.

    Anyway who on this earth would want a red van.

    JJ :Cool:

    Its looks good and would save a lot of work as its ready to go, RWD with a proper chassis and he has obviously had it converted and used it for a hobby of motorsport, bikes in the garage or towing a car, be interesting to see why he is selling it, its an ex postal van hence the red colour and the easy in/out entrance either post office or more likely parcel force, a look at all the MOT's may be a good check on the milage as it seems low for a commercial vehicle

    did you check its registered as a motor caravan ?

    if not you will never get it registered as one now.....the outside MUST look like a motorhome to qualify...among other things.

    also check the gross weight.
    i assume you have a pre 1997 licence so no problem if it is....post 1997 and you arent licenced if its over 3500kg.
