thanks for the diagram thats a great help. your right about drawing a plan of where you want stuff because it a damm sight harder trying to alter anything after the fitout i'm trying to design mine at the moment but while i'm using it for work in the building trade i have got to make the stuff removable seating etc so at the moment i'm still in the planned stage as i have been for over a year as work always seems to get in the way

Finished building my pull out drawer with lots of scrap wood (kind of a prototype) with a shelf for my gas cooker and utensils, storage underneath and a proper home for my fridge with more storage behind that for other items.

Also got away the other weekend and stopoed for the night at Ribblehead viaduct ImageImageImageImageImage

Belter wee build - love the steels. What's the verdict on the tent bud?

Nice looking van ! Love Ribblehead ! Raced 3 peaks cyclocross raced a few years ago and went under it . Have you got any pics with your bike fitted to side ? Curious how it works .. I’m thinking of doing same to my wheels now I’ve seen yours .

Cheers, the tent is ideal if you plan on a longer stop over. Gives you much needed extra space

Thanks man.

I don't have any pics atm, but I use a blok pod for mount that is fitted to the floor using bolts and t-nuts so it's removable.

As for the steels, they were a faff on trying to remove all the rust etc and they haven't faired too well during the winter, so I'm probs gonna get them professionally refurbished at some point.

Some great ideas and info, really good use of space. The wiring for the leisure battery was really helpful, great job.
