This is an on-going record of how we've taken a brand-new Fiat panel van and cut big holes in it to convert what remains into a motorhome. We hope anyone contemplating building a motorhome will find encouragement here. With careful planning, modest diy skills, a few basic tools, and a little determination it can be done.
Whilst the van is fully converted, some pages may be incomplete as there is still some work to be done. It is surprising how, over time (and as one grows older!), things that were fine when one started no longer work so well. Also if we believe we could have done something better, we'll change it!
Early summer 2016 and we stumbled on this beautiful campsite at Eymet in the Dordogne, France. Very close to the old town square with the usual market and shops. We discovered, from Philippe the campsite owner, that 30 per cent of the locals are Brits!
Unfortunately health problems and other demands on our time have kept us away from the site and keeping up with emails. Our apologies if you've written and were expecting an answer, we hope to catch up soon. As always, it's great to hear from folks who are building or have finished their own van and been out enjoying it.
We're not likely to be travelling far this winter, but are going to try and have 'days out' to break the monotony of winter - it's something we've not tried before.
