    Hi, as most of you will know I don't have a camper yet, but things could be looking up.
    Just been talking to a bloke on the net who's got a VW t25 that he's willing to swap for my car, so could have a van very soon. It need some very minor work, needs the clutch cable adjusting or replacing and a bit of a tune up, but not a problem to do, will be going to have a look at the van in the next few days to get a better idea of things, but from the pic's I've seen it looks like a solid vehicle.
    It's not the perfect size for us but it'll be a good starting block for us to learn on:Blush:, once done up it'll help towards a bigger van.:thumb:

    I wouldn't mind doing that, then I'd be able to have it fit our needs, I've even put ad's up for a panel van for me to convert, but no luck there either:cry:

    Ideally i'd need a lwb high roof transit, but I could work up to that if needs be:thumb:
