Since 2017 as MHer, since childhood caravanning.
OK, so we have an orange Adria Twin 640 SFX on order, due to pick up on April 16th. We've asked Geoff Cox to add the following:

- extra leisure battery
- inverter with two sockets
- external shower hose - fits very nicely in one of the rear cubby holes in the cargo area
- an extra dual USB charging point so that we can both plug devices in when we're sleeping heads to the doors.

I'm also looking for

- a place to put mugs of tea first thing in the morning, so far this is the favourite: https://www.couchcoaster.com

- thinking about how to stuff rattling in the cupboards, maybe a piece of foam with cutouts? Have also seen this: Amazon product Need the dimensions of various cupboards though... Or maybe this would work? Amazon product
- seat cover for the dinette so the dog can travel there. Already have a harness for him. This is current favourite (I think the loveseat size will do, at least to start with): Amazon product
- some sort of organisation for the load area. Ideally something accessible from the cabin for shoes, walking gear etc, and something from the rear for BBQ, chairs, table, firepit etc.

- something to dry towels on

Since 1996 we've had Elddis, Swift, Rapido, Rimor, Chausson MHs and Autocruise & Globecar PVCs
Just one thing to check out ... what leisure battery are the adding? When we've had a second one installed by dealers they often remove the original and put in 2 matching ones but NOT the same type as the original (eg lead acid as opposed to AGM), so may be of inferior quality/type. Make sure you are getting the same as the original.

Good point - they're not removing the original but are matching its capacity exactly.

Excellent idea! Ive also been reading the Globecar one and Minxy Girl’s site -
Some good tips there. Picking up our Twin in a week or so after an extra battery fitted so something to ask! Also having solar panel and refillable gas system.

Ours came with solar panel and we decided to hold off on the gas for now. We've got diesel heating, same as our VW, and we didn't even finish a tiny bottle in 2 years with that.

I love the Globecar thread full of what people are doing to their vans, so thought I'd start one for Adria Twins!
Fantastic, well done you (y).......:cool:

I'm looking forward to watching this thread unfold.

The Globecar and Adria PVCs are definitely the best out there IMO.

.......... and their owners are just sooooooo COOL :cool:......:D

Did you mean to say the Adria PVCs are the best, shortly followed by Globecar? ;)

I’ve had a Pioneer DA230DAB fitted to replace a single DIN DAB radio. I have found that using Google maps through Apple CarPlay works well for satellite navigation, and is a lot cheaper than a unit with built in satnav. Even though I’ve got a Garmin 760 Camper satnav unit, I just don’t bother to use it.
