    RV re build


    right.them who know me will tell you that iv built my fare share of rods ,so time comes when its time to relax and put your feet up no more bad back and sore knees ..well so I thought
    I bought this of eBay did a deal with my caravan "we were on hols at haven park at the time" the guy brought it up from London and I delivered the caravan
    this is how the RV looked when I got her



    so I set too and ripped out the inside
    there was one room at the rear ,toilet next ,then another room and finally a large area with a wash basin,there was a side passage to the rear room with the others comeing of that

    now i had the wall down it was time to take it back to haven holaday park "we were booked in fore four week" and some of our mates were there ...so loaded up tools work bench etc beer ...of we went
    first thing was to get some kind of work top ..b & q .was just down the rd

    we got all the fitting from there
    this is a pic of the outside looking like b&q

    next was the seating first put caravan seats in

    they looked great but for the lanth of time we were spending in the RV were
    not very cumfy so we changed them fore a 2 seater setee


    at the time we had no fridge ,so no cold beer ..car boot budwiser cooler ...bargaan at £15
    other side of RV i fitted wardrobes from b&q bargan bin also 2 tub chairs ..got tabel of ebay


    time to get on with the bedroom
    got looking on ebay and got 8 doors out of a caravan good deal at £25 ,and set about building my own frames this came together fairly quick once i had all the bits together

    time to look at the out side
    i contacted a guy in doncaster to do the graphics ..after being mesed around for 3 weeks or more i went back to good old ebay there i got a quote and pics back in 1 week TOP GUY
    i got my RV to manchester for 8 in the morning and was driveing back home to doncaster by 10 the same day with a fantastic job on my rv £600 well spent





    id no idea that they came in a load of bits wow wot a job

    the rv is now almost finished
    had the best time at havon holls with building in the day and parying at evning/night
    like to add a big thanks .... had a lot of help in the first week with mick ferris giving a week of his 2 week hols also a big thanks to russ for helping me drink all my beer most night
    and to the security guard for being most understanding for the noise we were making at 1.30 in the morning ...dint realise the windows were open

    all i need now is a small classic car/hot rod to pull behind

    handbrake failed like in robin william's film 'rv'. does that make yours a 'big blue rolling turd' now?
