    CBE light switch

    I have purchased 2 CBE light switches. I want to switch them from 2 locations. One at the sliding door so we can switch lights on as we enter and off as we leave. I also want to wire it so we can switch lights off or on from the bed. It’s a hell of a walk from the bed to the door, can’t see me...

    Luton vans.

    Why don't we build more campervans in Luton box vans? Having been wrestling with the walls of my Boxer, I thought it would be a lot easier with straight walls. Hence the reason for the question?

    Hi, I have bought a Truma 6E boiler. It says not to have any combustible flooring under the boiler. The YouTube videos I have been following have either Altro flooring or some other type of decorative flooring under the boiler. It is going to be easier for me to fit the Truma unit over the...

    Thinking of buying a Eberspacher D4E Hydronic system.

    I saw this system at the Motorhome and Caravan Show. It looks good it was pretty expensive in the show £2100 but I’ve seen it since at under £1500. This makes it competitive to the Truma system. For me the advantages of Eberspacher is that most of it is under the van. The main criticism of this...

    Accident damaged vans.

    Any insurance problems in buying an accident damaged van for conversion? I’m friendly with a guy who buys damaged vehicles and sorts them out. I have known him for 30 years and in that time he has done dozens if not up to a 100 different cars and vans. These are light damage only and as a body...

    Vauxhall Movano

    Hi all, do people convert Movano vans into motor homes? There’s one in a local garage and it’s the right price and in good condition. Any reason why I shouldn’t consider it? I believe they are galvanised. Cheers

    Insurance costs

    Thinking of buying a Merc Sprinter spotted one online 2012 SWB 100,000 miles. Contacted an insurance company for a quote while I'm converting it and it came back £980 which to me sounds excessive especially since I wouldn't be using it but for a few trips to get materials. Is there a good...
