    Hi there

    Welcome aboard Frayer, I hope you find your conversion as totally captivating as most of the reast of us. A quick word of warning though, as your van is a Sprinter I beg you to make certain you treat all the rust you will undoubtedly find before starting your build as sadly these mechanically...

    What jobs did you do on your van today?

    I should have done this job a long time ago as the lack of a decent built in washing line has been causing us problems since day one of our adventures in 'Millie'. So yesterday, with both back doors open I attached a short piece of 25 x 50 lath towards the top of both doors, I then screwed in 2...

    DVLA requirements for change to motor caravan

    I totally agree with you Mark, just like so many official paperwork, the various Government departments don't appear to write with joined up writing! If you are nearly at the point of applying for a change of the V5 with the DVLA, if I were you I wouldn't even mention the fact that yours...

    Renewing/changing brake fluid, bleeding sequence?

    I am just about to change the brake fluid on'Millie' as it is almost 4 years since I last did so and that I noticed the other day that it was looking quite dark. My van is a 2008 Renault Master and I can't recall what the bleeding sequence is...................... my memory is suggesting that...

    French vehicle tests.

    In all my years living over there I only knew a very limited Brit. ex-pats who actually bought new French cars and most certainly not one who bought a 2nd hand French LHD car, the reasons being that: - a. French garages by nature never discount new cars. b. French 2nd hand cars simply don't...

    Polystyrene insulation- fire risk?

    What a total load of bo**ocks! If a motorhome is properly built, using proper materials throughout the construction then that is not the case. In my van I used closed cell spray foam and special fire retardent upholstery foam and materials. Yes we do have a gas hob installed but I test/check...

    French vehicle tests.

    OK Phil, having lived there I have jumped through the French registration hoop several times over the years and to be honest it can be a right royal PITA :mad:!!! I attach a link toone of the many ex-pat websites which I always found to be amongst the best...

    What jobs did you do on your van today?

    I had an interesting problem whilst over in Suffolk the other day. We were over there for a few magical days and were on our way to see a friend who lives there but we were somewhat early so I parked up at the side of the road for about an hour, then when I came to restart the engine...

    Shurflo Trail King 30psi pump repair

    Brilliant Phil, thanks for posting this info. My pump isn't quite as bad as yours was but now I know what to do with the otherwise excellent pump. Phil

    If I were you @RAW I would take very close notice of Geoff's advice as he is a glassfibre wizzard, or in other words what he doesn't know about glassfibre generally speaking isn't worth knowing about! Phil

    AIB Never Again

    I did very much the same as you did Dave. I had the original base purchase price for what was in fact quite a dinged and dented van, I then added up all of the costs as detailed in the spread sheets and that came to a figure to which I then added a further £2,000 and they were more than happy...

    AIB Never Again

    What I did for the agreed valuation was that when I applied to the DVLA for the V5 change I prepared a totally OTT perfect bound brochure showing 14 photographs which covered all aspects of the conversion as well as the finished item and along with this was a double page spread sheet of the...
