Thanks, yeah my first full sus and she does me well. Am tempted to upgrade to a newer version that only has the single front cassette, no other reason, making it a £2.5k upgrade ?

Yeah it's my go to beach for a day out, love it there.
Yep a ride to Heacham and the surrounding areas on a bit of an exploration, only clocked up 16 miles but was more smiles rather than miles ?

Were you about to get the flush mounting one? - t4Chippy did a group buy a few years back. Means no drilling a hole in the floor
I've already bought the table leg, it's a fold away one so will get packed away with the table when not in use. Comes with a rail that'll be fitted to the cupboards for it to hook over when I'm dining (y)
Liking the colour (y) ?
Thanks mate ?

In life we have many experiences, some good, some not so good. Some of these cases can be classed as a win for a fail. Yesterday I set about doing some vinyl work on my van, so braving the elements and with the help of my custom one off hand made workshop I set to work. An hour in and the rain hadn't let up, the wind was getting stronger and the temperature was dropping, but I stood firm and carried on ?
Shortly later I started loosing the light so had to abandon my task as I'd got absolutely nowhere! ? Weather 1 Pete 0.
Below is a photo of my custom workshop for anyone looking to build there own...

I'm quite happy to let people use my designs Bill, part of what makes this forum so great is that people are willing to share ?

I would suggest a large brolly to help give you better protection from the elements, as for the design, that's where the fun begins because you can adapt it to what you like, even if that is peppa pig ?

So like with most things re the conversion, I had always planned on getting a rock and roll bed, I've now had an epiphany of a custom pull out seat creating the bed whilst having storage.
Designer hat on, firing up Solidworks :cool: Watch this space.

Watching ? ....
Ours is an H section carcass with a huge drawer that when pulled out supports the bed board (piano hinged ply) . The back half of the carcass is a big locker type cupboard for my trolley jack,tow rope ,jump leads etc so i can get to them if i need to without emptying the whole van .
Makes up into a 6'4 x 4' wide bed .
