    Hi everyone,

    Just found your forum and signed up!

    I started converting my LDV Convoy Luton van in July this year. At the finishing stages now, then heading off to Wales for Christmas and New Year in it - test run! Plans to hit Europe in 2016.

    Van is fully self sufficient with regards to power (large solar setup), heating (log burner!), etc. Living in it now so as to test things properly as I've built it (no shower leaks, etc!). Great fun, awesome project... and starting to see the finishing line at last!

    Richard.
