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

Thanks Phil, that's exactly what I needed to confirm that it's the original surface. I'm still planning to reuse the worktop, but as I uncover and clean more of it I'm finding there are bits of damage here and there. So I've ordered a roll of stick on vinyl with a similar pattern to stick over the t...

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

Hi John, Thanks for the link, if I were doing a vehicle from scratch then that would be a very tempting option - fairly easy to reconfigure too if the owner wants something a little different it would just be nuts and bolts. I am debating how to do the runners for sliding doors and that would make i...

Carawagon laminate - all the same, and modern equivalent?

With nowhere to go and no prospect of adventuring in the next few months I decided to remake some of the butchered Carawagon furniture the previous owner had a go at with a nail gun, red laminate and glue. In pulling apart the side cabinet I found that they had stuck the reddish laminate over the to...

Got my papers too - I'll probably travel down after work on the Friday, so see you at some point that evening.

Re: Cooker

Yep, you're looking for a Dudley double burner with grill. Usually hammer blue finish paint, with white top section and knobs. IMG_20160325_165948478.jpg The original height (for mine at least) puts it about an inch from the floor when open inside - so is is possible to cook inside, but not ideal. T...

Re: Which Solar panel?

Hi John, My setup is an Absorbed Glass Mat type lead acid battery under the passenger seat (this style: https://www.optimabatteries.com/en-us/yellowtop-deep-cycle-battery/d34 ) - linked up to the solar charger, and the alternator when the engine's running. It's done well considering it's age now, an...

Re: Which Solar panel?

Hi, I've got a similar setup with a deep cycle battery as a leisure battery, and standard lead acid as the starter. The 80W solar panel on the front rack (mounted flat) rarely puts in more than 6 amps in the UK, if that helps any estimations for amperage. I've used a standard 20A solar controller fo...

Re: Forum outage and update

Hi Ian, It looks like the old green theme I adapted for the previous forum software doesn't work on the latest version - I'll work on that and see if I can get it back again. Until then - I've set it to use "Elegance" by default, the contrast is a bit better than the default one I think - hopefully ...

Re: Carawagon interior roof covering

Wear goggles when vacuuming or brushing the roof though - looking up into a falling cloud of tiny glass fibres is asking for trouble!

Re: The Miners Standard (Winster, Peak Disttict)

Thanks for the recommendation Rob! We've been looking for a place to have a work camping trip and this looks ideal.
