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.
