badger


Hi Badger,

I am just going to start my second conversion, my first attempt was a basic
seating area which converted to a double bed and single bunk, also a sink
and cooking area was included in the ex-police riot transit van.

This time I'm looking for a Iveco Daily or one of the large Sprinters. Any
comments?

Also, is it too difficult to cut/fit double glazed windows and where can I
purchase any in the UK for the above vehicals?

Thnx,
gARY

East Yorkshire Bob?

Have you an outlet in Kent?

If not can you get one a bit sharp like?

As the postage on the stuff I require would pay for the van.!

Best,
gARY

Next question.

They/companies sell 6berth motorhomes but only have 3seats in front??

Do three travel in a car behind?


Nope, they sit in the seats in the back of the motorhome, most modern ones
have at least 2 forward facing seats in the back with steel frames and
seatbelts, but there is no requirement to have seatbelts in the back of a
motorhome, so you can legaly sit as many people as you can fit on the

sofa's
in the back, as long as you dont overload the van of course.. which most
factory conversions you could never carry 6 people let alone the clothing
and stuff to support 6 people and stay within the weight limit of the base
vehicle.


Is that right that I would be covered on the insurance if I carried one more
person than I have seat belts?

To be honnest most of the time the 6 berth thing is just a selling point,
like years ago VW campers (those small hippy mobiles were sold as 7
berths, to acheve this you had to each get into bed in a relevent order,

and
at least 3 of them slept in hammocks in the elevating roof, 1 or 2 in the
cab seats etc,
so the van may be able to sleep 6, but it wont be much fun for those
involved,


I agree, I see in another thread you are looking to self build also?

What van are you looking for and why?

I just want a real bigon to play with this time,
gARY
