    So thought I'd put up a few pics of our winter project. We bought the van in October with the idea of finishing around Easter (we ran over a little bit....) It's pretty much done now and we're going for a month in a few weeks. We went for a simple conversion in a swb van as it's easier to park (we live in Brighton and have to park on the road). Let me know what you think!

    Thanks! We've yet to sleep in it as the weather has been so rubbish!

    Excellent!, hope you have great times in it

    Had 3 T4's and the last one I converted into a camper from my work van, owned it for 10.5 years

    Wow! Great work, looks amazing (y)

    How long has it taken, do you know?

    And was the side window fitting a tricky job?

    Thanks guys! I'll be honest with you... We actually had the side window fitted as I didn't fancy taking the risk and being left with a hole in the side of the van. I don't think its a hard job though, you just need to make sure you measure, measure and measure again. We got the van in October and it's pretty much done now, we'd be able to do it much quicker now as much of it was a learning curve really.

    Looks a lovely van Danny, I've had a couple of T4's myself, hardest part is finding the right van to start with.
    Hope you both enjoy it.

    Thanks man. It took ages to find it as I'm sure you are aware how over priced they are!

    Both! There's a real sense of achievement though now it's done. It's funny the things you are most proud of when its done.

    Absolutely, particularly at this time of year, they're a good investment though, you'll never struggle to sell it if you ever want to, they're great vans.
