Re: Fiamma awning/Sun shade

We have the 3M version fitted to the side of our roof rack. https://i.imgur.com/u0YVet5.jpg It needed to be fitted high enough for the slope of the canopy to clear the front passenger door when opened, also in this case it needs a rain baffle fitted underneath (just a piece of thin plastic board, it...

Re: Best (?) compressor cool box

I think I may have seen one of those in the flesh. Does the compressor run when only on 12v? Hi yes works fully on 12v capable of -18c I think the low battery protection is also settable to different levels T he compressor is probably 12v with a built-in transformer for when on 240v. Although that'...

Re: Flooring

It was my idea and mod, but I think others have already done it to their vans before me. Eventually, there will be a second box, but that requires modifying the handbrake linkage rerouting pipework and a cable gear change system, so a work in progress at the moment. There are few photos of the inst...

Re: Inner sill bung holes

I’ve been thinking about this and I think I may have a few holes I probable need to block, but would like to leave them assessable if need be (more jobs for the ever-growing list) I think I may have a workable solution but don’t know until I get the van back (rough sketch below).

Re: The ultimate portable T25 tool kit

Yes, they are our starting point and will certainly be paired down as we learn what is really needed.
For local trips and weekends away, most of it will probably be left at home.
