Re: Carawagon laminate - all the same, and modern equivalent?

Hi Patrick, I cant be on much help I’m afraid, as the PO of my Carawagon also removed the original furniture and re-made to his own design. I wouldn’t recommend using that as a template. I’ve been looking at different solutions for rebuilding the interior of mine, and will look at a couple of custom...

Re: Caranex/Carawagon

Calum, I think the Caranex might fit well onto the telescopic poles. Depending on whether the Caranex is H4 or H4TL, the poles would be extracted to different lengths to ensure a good fit.

Re: Which Solar panel?

Thanks Patrick, that’s really helpful. Could u ask a little more about the type of deep-cycle leisure battery that you’re using? Is it also a lead acid battery? The controller that I was planning to get to charge the lead crystal battery has to be a bit different than the type you linked to, but is ...

Re: Carawagon interior roof covering

Any tips for cleaning it? Mine is a bit grubby looking, I suppose from being left in a shed, unused for a few years. Short of covering it with a new roof-lining, I was thinking about spraying a liquid carpet cleaner on and then vacuuming off to see if it’d make a difference. Anyone tackled it alread...

Re: Which Solar panel?

I’ve found this a really interesting and helpful thread. It seems there’s quite a lot of science to consider before selecting the controller if the leisure battery is something other than a regular lead-acid battery, i.e. differing in type from the starter battery. In the rebuild of my Carawagon, I’...

Re: Is this any use to anyone?

Hi Robin,
Mine too has this piece missing. I’d be interested in making one if you could make a template (e.g. on a couple of sheets of newspaper), I could then cut one out of some plywood with my jigsaw.

Very good that so many will be there for Brad - unfortunately I’m working in Paris on that day, so unfortunately can’t be there.
