Well the day has finally come that Barrie from Autocraft is delivering my fully converted Van. :):):)H:H:H:

Will post some pics once it arrives. I drove to Aberyswyth in a Panel van and a shiny camper is going to be returned.

Although I do feel some what of a fraud. Reading all these self build threads, there are some very talented people on this forum. I can barely change a light bulb!!!!

Looking forward to attending the Harrogate meets.

A very exciting day, bet you haven't slept!!
Good advice 'look after and enjoy' just don't get too paranoid about the odd mark to the inside you are bound to make by the pure nature of it being a camper.
In my first van I was so worried about causing marks, knocks etc to my lovely interior that looking back I didn't get so much fun out of it as my current van which I haven't been so paranoid about.
Happy days ahead T:

Thanks guys that's great advice, already have two trips planned in it, I really do feel like a kid at Xmas, the kids are bouncing off the walls with excitement as well. A:A:A:

He already has a name - Luigi!!! Not sure why but there was a small moustache shaped sticker where the rear view mirror would normally go, so the kids thought it looked like an italian waiters moustache - genius!!

Will get some photos up over the weekend.
