Well I have'nt done much on it, Yeah I know lazy bugger I am. I ripped out the front club lounge and put bunks in there. I have replaced the whole frame at the back of van as per usual I bought one that was rotten in the back. I have'nt had the time or $$ to do much on it.Now that we're moving I will now not be able to get it finished by xmas I reckon so its in at a caravan repairer. Ooooohhhh wonder what thats gunna cost, Someone gunna have to come with me when I pick it up so when I get the bill there will be someone to pick me up off the floor lol

lol I can use them but I'm certainly no perfectionist mate Shocked near enough is good enough unfortunately thats my philosophy Rolling Eyes I'll get some finished pics up when I get it back. I am a little concerned about weight on the towball as I've fitted full size house bunks up the front Suspect

I like what you've done to the interior ... smart bugga hey ... Cool

Who did you take the van to? From memory Hardings is one of the better repairers in Melb.

http://www.hardingscaravans.com.au/

There at:

114-142 Colchester Road,
Kilsyth Vic, 3137

No idea where that is to you.

Ha Ha yeah we go there every year. Its taken me 20 years to get that spot, Its in a court so no through traffic. 700 sites at this park and only 6 or 8 with concrete slabs. Its grouse for keeping inside the van clean.

Laughing I've got 2 sets one the 4 bar millard set and a Heavy duty Hayman Reece set but LR reckon cant use them with SLS airbag suspension on the rovers as it plays havoc with the compressor and ends up burning it out.

Thats a bugger mate. I'm pissed about it too mate but it was to be hervey or bundy and I'm relieved if I can put it that way that we're not in Bundy right now. Just water staining or did it soak right through the ply?

It's stained but the stain is getting bigger and algae/ mold is forming in just the short time we've been here. We are looking at upgrading the van but not just yet so will prolly have to grin and bare the cost to fix it.

Well we took it up to Shepparton for its first trip, just a weekend trip and was great, towed well, comfortable and everything worked as it should including the air con. We did'nt put the annexe up I just threw my awening from the car up for a bit of shade. In general pretty happy with it. We stayed at Big 4 Shepparton East van park and although it was a little pricey, had a good time and the staff were great.
