    Hi Guys,

    I've just found Motorhome fun, looks like a great forum.

    I'm not a motorhomer yet, just working on my conversion.

    I've been at it (part time) for two years, and plan on finishing it in the next two years, just in time for my retirement.

    I've got lots done, but there may still be questions to be asked, so bear with me.

    Here is a picture of what she looks like at the moment.

    Regards,

    Paul

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for all your good wishes.

    I've got loads of photos I've taken during construction, but I'm not sure if this is the right thread to include more of them.

    Here is one of our van the day we bought it home. [​IMG]

    Regards,

    Paul
