How about this for starters spotted at Evora Portugal.
I've seen that van before. About 4 years ago at Carrapeteira, Portugal.
Two sides to every story!
Well my daughter would LOVE it.... I'm not so sure.
Such craftsmanship and aesthetic good taste - is it a production model??
Will check it out!
do you think they are full timers?
New Age comes to mind.....
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!
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
Also saw it in Portugal last year
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
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.
we are sure that we met this van, well it's owners actually, in Sanlucar de Barameda (near Jerez), in December last year.
Wood burner chimney in the second picture by the look of it.
I. Rather like it. But I doubt if SWMBO would!. Reminds me of the "Wombles".
I wonder what the caravan club wardens would make of that if it turned up
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.
That looks like an Optare Metro Rider. I converted one of those before I got this van.
Those double doors are a pain because they are pneumatic and have no locks on them. This looks like a pretty good solution to me
I got turned away from a cc site in mine, however CL's were happy to have me
