Welcome to our website

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!

A rare pic of us both! Enjoying the sunshine on a grassy pitch at the municipal site in Sommiers, southern France, en-route to Spain in June 2016.

I'm sure regular visitors to the site will have noticed it's been some months since we updated the site.

Unfortunately a bout of pneumonia put me in hospital for some time, but we are now on the mend and hopefully we'll be off on our travels again soon.

We have no plans to change anything in the van as we are not up to heavy physical work at present, so the van remains at the stage shown in the gallery pics.
