    hi all, tommy and sally here just a pair of newbies here with a converted camper van we are doing up ourselves. we went to a show this year and had to sort out somewhere to sleep, got a tent and put it up in the garden "no way" was the reply from her indoors. so took out the dirty floor in my van, put in a raised floor, airbed carpet and away we went, gazeebo taped to the side door, and had a great time.
    so now we are makeing the van a bit more homely and looking forward to a bit of fun and adventure with our "new van"

    We were on the Broadings Farm site , handy for the town , but a few vans were parked up in the car park just before the bridge over the harbour which apparently turns a blind eye to overnight stays .
