    I've seen that van before. About 4 years ago at Carrapeteira, Portugal.

    I posted this not to take the piss actually, although I do think the way they have recycled the doors is quite amusing, but I love the fact that this life we lead travelling around doing your own thing can be led by all for a little or a lot, just doing it, that's the thing, cool! Happy travels to all!(y)

    I notice that it is on Brit plates, so obviously the owners leave Portugal every 6 months. And bring it back to England for MOT etc every 12 months :D

    I love seeing the inventiveness of the alternative campervan brigade. Some of them are brilliant and some look like a disaster waiting to happen. There are many of both types in Morocco.

    The only ones I don't like are the old ones THAT NEED TO WARM UP FOR EVER BEFORE THEY MOVE OFF!! So what if the brakes won't work, just move! And breath :mad:

    Have seen a spare wheel turned into a herb garden, a hammock bracket that swung out for when parked, a few with decking, etc etc.

    The work that has gone into them is incredible.

    I. Rather like it. But I doubt if SWMBO would!. Reminds me of the "Wombles".

    I really admire people who build their own only wish I had the ability to do it .Then I would not only get the layout that suited me but also a more practical colour scheme inside and not looking like a large fridge outside.
