    Adria Twin modifications

    Hi All
    I thought that you might like to view some of the mods I've done to my Adria Twin .....

    I bought the van 12 months ago (first van) and have had a fantastic 12 months. However over the 12 months I have found ways of improving the van to suit me and my wife (when she acompanies me). By the way, I can't spell, which doesn't make me thick! Please don't make me think less of you by pointing out my mistakes.

    When I (we) were looking for a van 15 months ago, the "must have" specification included a shower and a fixed bed, both present in the Adria Twin. However I don't like a shower curtain which clings to your body when showering, as the Twin's did. I added 2 strips of velcro and a short length of elastic to the shower curtain/shower wall to pull the curtain away from me while showering. I also remover about 6" from the bottom of the curtain so that it dripped/dried more quickly after a shower.

    Thanks go to "Europe by Camper" (Europe By Camper: Adria Twin Modifications and Improvements) website for the following mod...
    The addition of a folding bench across the side door opening. This has been a fantastic mod particularly when Lynne accompanies me. I had added a catch to stop the shelf from flapping about under heavy breaking.

    I also saw a mod which converted the small "hole in the floor" in the rear seats footwell into a more secure area. I have upgraded this mod to a lockable "safe". The safe is lined with 5mm thick foam. I used a standard latch lock, packed out with a thin piece of wood so that the latch fitted under the floor perfectly. I also removed a small amount of wood from the vertical strengthener to allow the latch to spring out correctly when closed. Travelling abroad I felt it a safe place to keep our passports and money. All parts were bought from B&Q.

    My van is silver and I thought that the gas outlet and water/electric flaps didn't blend in with the silver van, so using silver "smoothrite" and a cloth, I rubbed the black plastic with silver paint, giving the plastic a silver look. This has now been on since April and hasn't shown any signs of peeling off.

    I'm now going to attempt to attach the photos ....

    I can only attach 5 photos per post, so if you find this of interest, I can send you the rest of the photos.

    Cheers

    Mothman,
    awesome...

    I'm no expert but try my best to get a good rich and thunderous sound for music and watching films/tv!

    Presumed I'd be on my own there, my fault for typecasting motorhomers! Not that theres anything at all wrong with enjoying the peace and solace motorhoming and wilding in particular can enjoy. Everything has its time and place.....
