Evenin' all, this is a long one,so maybe best to get a brew on the go before reading! Right here goes, as some on here may know, I'm looking to alter my van in the coming months. I have a Merc 709D panel van conversion. She is a lovely conversion and is as I bought her 2 years ago. The drawback for me is the crossway rear double bed. At six ft across and over five wide, it's big enough (just) but access is always an issue and my wife's spine condition is not improving. So,my first thought was to get someone to remove/adapt this and the adjoining cupboards and wardrobe at either side of the aisle. At this point I need to add that two pull out side benches make into this bed and it is here where the main dinning table sites. I was going to lengthen these two benches to allow 2 x six feet single beds, making them 2'6 wide for standard mattress and raising them up also to provide access and more storage underneath.Phew! a lot of work 'specially with all the cabinetry. Now I'm thinking, why not sell my beloved,(no not the wife) and buy an 814 minicoach.It would have more power and torque, be a nice blank space, probably with auxiliary heating and a big boot in the back to put our mobility scooter in.So I guess what I want to know is, what are the drawbacks? I know I've seen some minibus conversions on line and some look a bit rough, however I assure myself that with enough budget I could really have a tasty custom camper. Anyone have any thoughts?
