Question: from "Oldtech" on 26th June 2012

I think you got a really great deal on the van. Could you tell me / us the name and contact details of the dealer ?? Thanks !

The van came from and was a great deal for such a low mileage.

Question: from "Campergirl" on 1st May 2012 Re Sink/Stove

...the sink/burner combo unit costs about £175 – I paid a bit extra for a universal connecting kit. I have a feeling that the unit only came with a plug for the sink...the cupboard outer wood was built by a professional cabinet maker - a swap of trades allowed me to have the sections made at cost price.

Question: from "Campergirl" on 26th April 2012

...The stove/sink? looks good, interested in how you did that?

...the main cupboard unit is based on a frame, this the double burner unit and sink on top. The unit is a Smev 911 unit (long and thin). We marked around the unit on the chip-board prototype top, and then cut a few inches within that area. We kept trimming the hole until the sink and the bottom of the burners went though the hole so the unit sat flat on the surface. The unit came with a rubber seal which takes up the slack as it is screwed down...
