    Well I’ve gone & bought our next van.. although it’s not a van yet!

    REmember if you put alloy next to steel the galvanic problems will happen, the alloy will disolve as the electrons flow from alloy to steel, you have made a battery, same with alloy rivets to steel, the frame should have been 316 stainless.

    Noise difference btwn. Transit L3H3 bus vs Transit L4H3 jumbo freighter

    Sticky solar panel

    There has to be an air gap under the panels to keep cool and better power, a deflector is ok but doing so also causes suction on the top which will try and lift the panel, aircraft wings work like this in a small part, thin deflected air over the top and thick less compressed air under them, you...

    High altitutide hazard

    The trick is to fart at the same time you open the slide, this equels the pressure and no blow back will happen. If after decending one must hold onto the dangly bits or you will be in trouble.:eek:😂

    Loosing so much power converting from 12v to 230v, 12v lights and usb 5v charge points are the way to go, gas to cook etc. I do have a 230v fridge on a 600w smart inverter running 200ah batts and 200w solar.

    Project van?

    Ebay and f book are full of campervan half finished dreams, many are a lashup and some beyond fixable at silly high prices, my van was bought like that and required a full strip & rebuild, lucky i bought it for buttons with 50th on the clock and a new recon engine fitted.

    Solar on my touring campervan.. a waste of time ?

    Mine keep the electric 230v fridge running through a 600w smart inverter, so if stopped the fridge is drawing but panels keep the batts up to dark, the batts will last well into next day so it works for me, mine are behind a high roof nose so little or no drag.

    Sticky solar panel

    Spray foam insulation.

    My van was set with thin ply over insulation and riveted to the steel box frame which the outside alloy panels are fixed to, i used wide head rivets then covered the panels with trim cloth.
