T25 interior storage units

Post by davelee365 »

Hi there, newbie here so please be kind.
Just starting out renovating 1985 T25 Devon moonraker interior which is very dated.
Hopefully can salvage and paint/wrap the main fridge/cooker units but was hoping to add some smaller high level units (above the main unit) that I’ve seen on other vans to add some extra storage but can’t seem to find any for sale anywhere.
Just wondering if anyone had any advice or knows of a company who sell these?
Thanks

Hi,
Would have thought the cost would be high to have something specific made. The answer might be DiY. MDF or ply and vinyl wrapped.

Dont use MDF , very susceptible to water damage.
Not sure how good the newer water resistant types are though now.

Vohringer board is probably the best one to use it's very lightweight. But it's not cheap.

Any lightweight poplar ply is the stuff to use. Morland make it in Wales, you can buy it as unfaced ply as well as the melamine faced stuff.
Its significantly lighter and stronger than regular wbp type ply.
