    Looks good, as risk of being rude, could we have a look inside please?

    I love this thread! You all have such beautiful homes, and I love that so many have them have been built by your own hands

    Here's mine Many of you saw my thread about its conversion process, so here's a couple more pictures of the 'finished' (are we ever finished modifying?) product:

    I'm a true stealther.... I nearly blend in...

    stealth.jpg

    Here's the inside... it's usually more tidy than this, I just took a quick pic by pulling the curtain back. This is the view from the back doors. Bed on the right, access to the cab up front with a bit of gymnastics, wicker basket is my wardrobe, extra blankets and odd bits kept in the faux leather box up front, food kept in the white storage baskets to the left up front, then underneath the bed I have water bottles and another white basket for toiletries. On the left hand side is my condensation catcher (does an amazing job!) and my fold down table black out curtains at the front and back.

    Keep smiling and driving, everyone

    The glass sliding door is AWESOME. I've seen people build wooden doors, etc., but that both practical and offers extra security.

    Raffi as always loving the little van - looks rather cosy inside.

    So cosy! I am BLESSED in that the heaters in my little van warm up very quickly and the heat seems to stay in for an hour or so (usually enough time to get snuggled up in bed, do a bit of reading, then pass out) before slowly fading back to cold. By the time it's cold I'm happily wrapped up in my sleeping bags and blankets. No fuss here! Simple life is the best life

    It's huge!
    Is it hot in summer? I'm wondering how efficient standard insulation is against the hot weather.

    Yes she is a big girl, lol. The first summer was hot even with the awning providing shade over the one side but with free electric the built in air con really is a boon, especially as we reach about 48 degrees in the summer. Get a good tan though, lol.xxx

    Looks nice, I once lived in a 36 ft narrow boat on the canal. No engine though so it didn't move anywhere

    At the time it suited me and my needs. I was moored up in a lovely spot and even had a garden with it. I honestly had no desire to move it. I do get where you're coming from though, the option would have been nice.

    why not?

    far too much wasted space on a wide beam for one or 2 people.
