Alright peeps!

I just joined so thought I'd say Hi.
On Sunday I'm collecting my 'new' camper van, James. He's an '87 VW Kombi, originally converted in Aussie. He's shorter and lighter than my car but, by ingenious German design, has pretty much everything I need - less is more :-D I plan to take him on triathlons, mountainbiking, canoeing, surfing and hiking trips all over the country - let the adventure begin!
First things I'll be quizzing you experts on is insulation and heating, and self-containing.
If you see us (James is pretty easy to spot!) camping or on the road, give us a honk or come and share a beer and a yarn.

Safe travels now,

Jez

Welcome Jez,

Nice looking set-up :TU

You will find many threads here about self containment, heating and insulation, just use the forum search function at the top right of your screen to get started.
One thing I've learned from my time here is that there isn't often a "right" answer but there are many "near enough" ones to point me in the right direction ;)

Cheers

Hi Skiwi,

Thanks for the msg, will heed your advice. Tried to use the search though and it's hopeless; when I put in several words i.e. 'which power lead', instead it searches for any not all of those words, so I end up with thousands of matches and don't stand much chance of finding anything useful.

Oh well, I'm sure I'll work it out eventually. Your camper is huge! Could fit about 3 of mine in that!

Happy camping now.
