We have the Van. We picked it up from the Conversion Company (Convert Your Van) up in Sheffield two months ago.
We tested it for 3 nights in Wales, under horrendous weather. Few things became clear very quickly:
1 – We need an awning!
2 – We need a thermal windscreen
The kitchen is by the sliding door with all the electric switches, not ideal with the rain.
We then spent 3 nights in the Isle of Wight. This time the weather was glorious, so hot. On both occasions, an awning would have provided shelter from rain and sun. So we have been investigating few companies to get an awning.
We are set on hitting the road in September. We have still few things to fix in the flat and the van. It seems we may have some LPG leak as we filled it recently and it is now in the red although we used very little. Something to investigate urgently!
So watch this space, we are off soon. I can’t wait!
