Well I’ve been and gone and done it ----I bought my van!!!
Its a Merc Sprinter and has been converted already. It has a kitchen, shower and fixed bed, plus a partly set up basic composting toilet. The engine has done a lot of miles but that’s ok as I’m not planning a huge load of driving.
It has solar and diesel heating plus wired up lighting. I got an three way fridge, bit old but working and has a cooker with hob, grill and oven that runs on gas.
I’m pretty darn pleased… but still got a few things to do before moving in.
Which brings me on to the windows; I need to make insulated blackout privacy inserts for the rear, side and all the cab windows.
I have bought a roll of reflective bubble wrap foil and was planning on covering this with thermal, blackout fabric. Will that work? I saw online someone do this but they used a material that was more like a waterproof canvas than thermal fabric. Which would be best? I am in Scotland and our winters are cold and damp.
This will be my first experience of van life and I like to be toasty but not mouldy if you know what I mean…any suggestions?
Thank you for your time and assistance, most appreciated
