    Iveco 2007 Library Van - Any good ??

    Looking at MOT History it has had some rust. Will go and have a look and see if I can get the price down if it's not that tidy. I would need to put Solar on for off-grid and also inverter etc. Currently SORN, think they may be mechanics as says it will have full 12 month MOT before sale.

    Iveco 2007 Library Van - Any good ??

    Following on from this, and as the Marketplace seller did not get back to me with a video as he said he would, plus he's about 2.5 hours drive away, I came across another older Iveco on Marketplace which is geographically closer and looks like it could be good for me to have a base for...

    WANTED - Cheap PWM Controller and Leisure battery

    Sounds fine to me, the Victron MPPT is 30amp, bit over Spec but if and when I get a new Van then I want to look to get over 1KW of Solar on the roof and also use the Tilt type that @StreetSleeper showed me on his van. Bang me an email with what you want for it and will send you some ££ Cheers...

    WANTED - Cheap PWM Controller and Leisure battery

    I am selling Sylvia, decision 95% made, and I want to take the decent AGM and Victron Kit out. If anyone has any unwanted PWM controller and a Leisure battery, 90AH up, going spare then that would be great. Controller needs to handle 285W panel below: Thanks in advance Robert

    Amazing Ambulance Conversion (US) - REALLY AMAZING

    Ah right, OK. Maybe if you are near Hebden Bridge, West Yorks (google maps link) in your trips out you could come and see me, or be close and I could take a look at Betty. My other thoughts are to sell Sylvia in Spring and bank the Money with a view to getting a more suitable camper. Lots of...

    Amazing Ambulance Conversion (US) - REALLY AMAZING

    Obviously the chap with the Ambo isn't short of a bob or two !! Victron everything and more... Not to mention at 5:43 - water heater using engine coolant when driving with heat converter !! WOW what an amazing idea, that would not be too hard to set-up I think. Is anyone using anything like...

    Mercedes Sprinter for Sale

    I went to have a look at this over in Blackpool. It's a fairly tidy van, sadly too small for me. It runs and drives and as far as I can tell works well and has an oldish solar panel on the roof. Seller is a good guy, ignore the price on the Facebook Post - He's after around £6,000 for it from...

    Mercedes 813 - Early 80's Diesel - OM 352 Engine

    To close this off - I didn't buy it, chap told me the person that he sold her to managed to get it stuck in the grass verge near his house ! If it comes on the Market again I would be tempted again. The Vegetable Oil, running on Bio-Diesel, would be a long term project I think. Thanks for all...

    LF inverter Better Buy ?

    Hello, I got this Edecoa and found it at a cheaper price on EBAY. It seems to do the trick with most appliances up to 1KW but trips out over the 1KW range, if I had the money I would probably steer clear of the Chinese manufactured and branded ones and look at something like this...
