The Camper Caper.

If they take mine, they’ll get me as well, I’m living in it. (Which is why I’ve paused the work on it. I’m trying to do bits and pieces, mainly fixing weaknesses in the insulation, but it’s impossible to do anything substantial when I’m surrounded by my stuff).

But thanks for the tip, I’ll sleep with one eye open.

I think you're safe ;)

thats how they make the commision back
I pay 60 quid a year
all tracking data is stored, can be seen on the PC or smart phone ( I had to buy one though as my ancient Nokia would not talk to it)
I cna also get tracking units that talk to the cars software and remote control them
however Cambus is a bit of a pain
you should be able to remove the chip in the tracker and fit your own
or install a repeated unti
you ring it and it texts you its location
10 quid on a SIm lasts for ages
I'll be interested in that when my van comes

Dipping my toes in the vanlife thing, so my compliments to you.

I have found this a remarkably useful resource - and interesting your experience of the Chinese diesel heater matches the reviews I read elsewhere.


Good luck mate and stay safe.
They are wrong, needs propane for cold weather, not butane.
 
Bed pulled out, curtain track installed.
Pretty chuffed with the results.

Looks great. That wallpaper or Fablon on the wall looks identical to mine.

That cupboardy thing with the wood grain finish, has that been built bespoke to fit the space, or is it an off the shelf item from somewhere like Ikea?

Aircraft heater called a Janitrol which runs on avgas but will probably run on mogas too. Might be able to pick them up at AMOs when they get pulled out of aircraft to save weight or the owner has bottled it.

Terrifying thing. It's like firing up a bomb on board.

Bespoke, cupboards and bed unit were made from 2.5 sheets of 15mm ply.
I only really cut wood to make fires so the vinyl wrap covers a few sins!

Should be getting my minibus next week.

Went to sort out the insurance.

How many seats has it got?

Thirteen for the first half hour, then three.

We can't insure thirteen, so unbolt them before you drive.

Leaving them loose in the back?

Yes, then you'll be insured!
