thanks for that but i doubt i will be buying a fully blown bongo,bit out of my price bracket for a gudn, more like a emina or a town ace i can semi convert. where we live there is not enough room to park our van ,and at 27years old and the time spent living in her she is getting ready for a bit of serious money spent on her so downsizing

when in uk i have a bongo tintop 8 seater . today i got a lift up to the side back seat so will loose the rear bench use the right half lift up one and build a cooker wash unit to the rear left side. you can get some good ones cheap if you buy the unconverted ones . i had full length roof rack and roof tent on mine till this year. also pull a teardrop behind it if needed . build your own teardrop not too difficult. cheers alan.

Hiya. I've got an Estima Emina and have a made a single bunk for when I need a bit of time away. If the wife wants to join then I add to it for a double bunk. I made a stuff box for the back with the door dropping down to make a table and a place to cook off plus a basic tool kit. I'm currently putting 240 volt electrics in and will be putting a leisure battery and further 12 volt lights and sockets in plus a split charger later this year hopefully. When I get a bit more time I'll put some photos on here.

thanks for the input .the beddy goes tomorrow ,:eek: and it looks like a pug estate will replace it for a while .mind you we can still use the pug for the odd night out ,plenty of room for a blow up (now what do they call them :D)oh yes a mat
tres :D sleeping bag thrown in and off we go .more than likely look round for a small van to convert for the summer .if anyone is looking for a cheap motor home (not mine its sold) you wont go wrong with an old beddy.
