**JAN 2016 Update **
Before:

After:


I haven't done a CS project thread for donkeys and there's a chance I might keep this for more than 10 minutes so I think I'll start one

The original plan was to source a face-lift van (2010+) and do the conversion my self, but I got lazy!

Conversion spec is:
* Evo-motion Cabinets.
* Smartbeds rock & roll bed.
* Dometic hob & sink (with pump, clean & waste water tanks).
* Compressor fridge.
* VAN-X privacy curtains.
* Power management system (with site hook and integral charger).


So now the plans for this one are:
* Brighten up the interior (I have no idea why the person who had the conversion done chose such dark colours!).
* Fit a pop-top roof.
* Replace one of the side windows with an opening one.
* Fit a waste water tank.
* Use it!
* Tidy up some of the wear and tear on the conversion (its about 4years old).

I would love one of these. They sell for a pretty penny too.

Knowing your eye for a bargain this will be a big winner for you.

A friend of mine has had a production line of these going for years where he de fleets his work van and turns it into a camper then buys a recent model for work. A few years down the line he sells the camper, de fleets and converts and buys a newer one for work. Has done it twice so far, must be making loads of cash.
