I like this. I like the sliding bed with the self inflating mattress. The roof box weirdly suits the van too. Great work.

So nothing has been modded, but the Caddy has seen some use recently. I’ve done 2600 miles in 8 days from my house in Northumberland, to the southern coast of France and back. Here’s a quick picture of the setup before I left ImageThe trip went from home to Dover, then the ferry to Calais, Calais to small town called Trevoux for the first nights camping and to break up a long drive, then up the next morning and down to Cagnes Sur Mer, on the French Riviera where I set up camp for 3 nights to explore the southern coast.
Image
We then explored Nice, Antibes, Cannes, and Monte Carlo, (a word of warning to anybody doing this, take your roofbox off before trying to park in ANY French town, almost all of the parking is underground and limited to 1.9mtrs in height).

Then after 3 nights in the Riviera, I headed into Italy to make my way up to the alps, where I pitched up camp right beneath Mont Blanc. Truly breathtaking scenery.

Then finally off the the last stop. Paris. An absolute nightmare to drive around, and the roofbox actually had to be shoehorned into the back of the van to get into the car park there. But still, a beautiful city

Also the perfect place to put a ring on it, and she said yes!!

Then back home, Paris to Northumberland. Now absolutely shattered, but the Caddy performed valiantly. A true machine! Literally not even a single hiccup along the way, even whilst driving in 44 Celsius, which is no picnic with a Trendline without Aircon ImageImageImage


Now onto planning the next adventure!!

Loving what you've done here.
Am looking at getting a Maxi probably shortly for a house build starting next year and then to use for camping and taking the bike out with.

Just looking into the right mods to make it a sleeper...

Also, how to freshen up the front end (wings, front bumpers/side skirts, and headlights). Looks like wheels are 18x8ET40ish to fit nice n snug too.
Caddy Maxi wanted ideally with a number of mods already done 8)
