    Charging a leisure battery from vehicle

    I've been using my van for a year now and made a few changes as I've gone along. I go off grid several times a year and use a 100W solar panel, but on cloudy days this doesn't keep up with the power used by the cool box. I have considered buying a generator, but it occurs to me that the vehicle...

    Vehicle tax class

    I've had my van approved by the DVLA as a Motor Caravan and now I need to tax it. It currently has a tax class of NHS vehicle and needs to be changed at the Post Office (according to the DVLA and the V5 form). What tax class is a self build Motor Caravan and how much should I expect to pay...

    Insulating a lined roof on a minibus

    Another lurker

    Bitten the bullet and set out on the path to camper conversion. Mine has to be a multi purpose vehicle however. I've just bought a MWB Renault Master that used to be a NHS bus, so has head height, plenty of windows, but they don't open. I need to leave a 36" space up the middle for carring 3/4...
