Ok guys loving the van – I have got myself some temp insurance at the moment because it is classed as a panel van and I will convert it to a Motorhome vehicle by the end of the mission with the DVLA.

Loving driving the van about, I’m not sure what it is, maybe it’s when you step UP into the driving seat and look DOWN on other drivers, but it feels nice to drive. Yes it’s a bus, it’s bloody massive and I won’t be hand braking this bad boy about. It’s definitely not my Rotax go kart!!!  However, cruising down the motorway is fine and enjoyable even in the lanes it’s good; the van is sweet, no noise, runs real nice!! Thanks Stew at Green’s ARC, hero!!!

Off to see my sister and her lovely family back down South to sort out the insulation and the plan for the inside with my brother in law, Matt, who is a legend handy man and who should of been on the A- team. Handy to know for all your electrical works!!! (matt@prioirtyoneengineering.co.uk)

First thing was to work out what sort of installation i needed. I did lots of research into what most high end camper vans, motor homes and van conversions used, and I decided to start with foil that is like Celetex but a lot easier to use and go’s in tricky places a lot easier. This stuff reflects the heat from both ways, so when its hot outside of the van in a hot place it will keep it cool inside. Also being a white van it will help, when it’s cold outside it will keep the heat inside of the van, happy days!
