    We love our Laika H710 and its overall layout enormously. We try to use the van as much as possible & intend to use it throughout the winter again this year...

    However, we have a bit of a niggle, in that the washroom set-up doesn't working for us - the toilet is too high for SWMBO and too cramped for me, & the sink is too big. In addition, all the plastics are not only looking a little tired/faded, the pale mustard colour itself looks dated - a fresh plain white would make so much difference.

    So, my question is, can anyone recommend a company to do this makeover? We're based in the south of Essex but are prepared to travel a bit to get it done. We think it'll make the van perfect for us...

    Thank you

    Steve

    I can't answer with a recommended company but, suggest you widen your search to include boat ( narrow- and cruiser) companies. Many of the skills involved are much the same and the parts too and it seems to me that there are more companies doing up old boats than doing up motorhomes.

    Hi @Eeyore
    Thanks for the suggestion, much appreciated.
    I did do some research, but in the end the results were just a list of companies with glossy brochures and rave reviews by strangers. I was hoping that some kind funster could point me in the right direction with a personal recommendation.
    Thanks
    Steve

    Try O'Leary or Magnum - they have huge stocks.

    Thanks Tony... do they just supply the bits or will they fit them too...

    I suspect that the loo might need moving a bit (along with the black tank underneath too) so think it'll be more of an engineering job than diy

    Not sure how you can deal with the toilet height I'm assuming as you have a blck tank it's a marine pan I would start with searching for dimensions .Of marine pans everything else canbe source from o leagues or magnums wall boarding is available everywhere to cover up

    Thanks @mitzimad . I think it's gonna get complicated, and therefore beyond me :D:D
    Any personal recommendations of someone who can do it for me would be gratefully received (y)
