I've not had a chance to get onto the forum for the last couple of months. A lot has changed on here but progress on your van is awesome fella. You must be pleased!
Front wheel off mate, only way it'll go in behind where the r&r bed will eventually go. I'll devise some bracket that will use the quick release system to lock the front in place, and have some anchor point to the rear of the bike to lock to the cupboard. Good shout with the wheel bag, will have to invest in one.Are you planning on transporting the bike with the front wheel on or off?
I made a simple sliding track for mine that locks into the two outermost Caravelle seat rails.
This has a selection of 9mm and 15mm fork mounts attached to it so I can chuck either selection of bikes in the back.
I prefer knowing that the fork mount will hold the bikes securely and I have a wheel bag for the front wheels to go which I can tuck down the side of the seat or between kit bags.
Thanks Kingy, yeah I'm over the moon with how it's gone this far, I actually had a quick look back over my posts, almost forgot how it started out at the beginning of the journey, it's been awesome so far, can't wait to get out and properly use it as a tin tentI've not had a chance to get onto the forum for the last couple of months.

Thanks Bill, I think the out put is very good, but the van came with them so I can no comparison to standard, I'm certainly not looking to change them so they must be goodLooking good, the green trim suits it, headlights look good, i like the black inners, whats the light output like?

I can say with 100% confidence that I would gladly never do this again! It was a trial by fire and I learnt different techniques as I went, in hindsight I'd do certain areas differently but it's done and I'm happy with it. Wouldn't fancy tackling anyone else's to be honest mate.Do you wanna do mine now youve had a practice run Pete ? 😁
Aye good group of lads there, when I get my electrics done I'll see about having some others bits added while it's in.I was in Sun Rise Campers last week asking about Awnings, they are really helpfull.
Yeah it's definitely a pain, took me roughly 9 hours to finish the doors span over Saturday and Sunday, finished on Saturday around 5pm purely as the sensor light I was working with got annoying after the 100th time of turning off 😂 Plus it was flippin' freezin'!...this is why ive not tackled our doors yet , looks like a real pita .
With my ocd i reckon i'd need to order another 10meters of carpet and a dozen cans of spray before i would be able to get it even close to being happy with my efforts . ☺
It certainly is Chris, planning on going on so many trips which is a little unheard of for me, last year I only had a week off work, year before I took 1 days holidayLooks spot on that mate. That's what this van scene is all about

It was stunning, couldn't help but just sit back and relax while it set. This was at Hunstanton, closest beach to me at only 2 hours away. Nice easy drive and a lovely place.Sunset looks great 😎
Where did you go Pete ?
