Where can I get this?

Awol

Chaps, Today I’ve just bought myself a humungous Iveco van to convert into a camper. Although it’s essentially an empty van, a previous owner has kindly fitted a proper camper shower and toilet, a hot water heater, a cold water tank, electric sockets and external 240v hook ups.

I plan to make all the internal furniture and, to save weight, have decided to use this stuff (covered in Formica type stuff) for the non-load bearing bits, (cupboard doors etc).

It’s a cardboard honeycomb type material and weighs less than a beetle’s bollock. In a previous job it arrived as a packing material in 5ft square sheets and was skipped as worthless to be recycled.

The trouble is I don’t know where to get it (my old employer is 400 miles away now) and I don’t even know what it’s called to be able to carry out a Google search.

Anyone got any idea?

Your links appear to be broken, all I get is 'The requested page could not be found'.

Edit - never mind, working now.
 
Got any pictures of the van? Can't beat a bit of home made camper van porn. My retirement present to myself is going to be a 'project' camper van.

Sorry about that, I duplicated the image, edited it to delete one and it deleted both.
 
Excellent - looks like you'll end up with a real beauty. Keep us posted - it'll make a change from the Ginger and Fat Munters threads!

Here's a website I found when browsing. Has some info which may or may not be of interest/use depending on your technical ability

 

Would you not be aswell making it out of 12mm ply? I used to rig my vans out with all sorts of shelving/cupboards just with ply. Bit harder wearing than heavy duty cardboard.

Is this the stuff? The panel section? Edit - US supplier it looks lie. Probably a UK version somewhere.

Cheers. That’s exactly it. But as you say, in the US.

There's a UK manufacturer here: I guess shopping around once you know the spec will generate savings. I think the product might be the one here named

That's a huge van - good idea - would make a great thread to follow if you'd be inclined to share photos, etc.

it used to be called eggbox walling when it was first used din the 1950s, its also why doors are referred to as eggbox.

an option is to make a slim SIP with 3mm ply or laminated hardboard and celotex/styrene.
