Converted van for sale

Postby steamydave » Mon Aug 22, 2016 9:10 pm

Well, after 5 years, I am now selling my converted Carry. it has now done 98,000 miles, still going strong, but I now need a larger option as my personal circumstances have changed, and I need more that a 1 berth option!


The has had a handful of things go wrong with it, but it is extremely reliable.

A hole appeared in the sill and the wheel arches began to go, so I had them attended to this year before the deep rot set in.
