    worth a watch, I saw it first time round, but it is only a small part of the program

    try to work out where they might store the bedding and clothes when you see the finished product

    Stupid people-their total outlay would have bought them a decent s/h motorhome. They paid over the odds for the vehicle and WAY over for the conversion the 'technician' must have seen them coming from miles away.

    The people on his programme aren't the only ones who did this ... although ours was a later model, this is the one I built:

    We rather liked the conversion. Nice to see an old vehicle used like this rather than end its days.

    However, yes, the base vehicle wasn't large enough and storage was a major issue and the cost could have got better value elsewhere or done differently.

    And what happens when it rains? And something that small not using the front seats for living worries me.

    But it was enjoyable to watch and it's unique. And if they enjoy it then that's all that matters.
