  • Pre 1990 4 Single axle Touring No No 3 Leaking front window rubber seal.<br />No front gas locker. 3 Yes Yes 5 Very easy to tow 4 Window rubbers harden with age and eventually leak.<br />Beware that the windows are standard glass and can shatter into shards. 4 Yes Rebuilt from chassis up.<br /><br />Original caravan was a two berth with a bi-fold door to enclose the washroom/WC area.<br /><br />All bodywork timber was replaced (panel by panel) and a new floor fitted. The unit was then insulated and lined with 2mm plywood, while 2mm hardboard (normally used as a top surface on table-tennis tables) was employed for the roof lining. The ceiling was painted with white emulsion, while the walls were paper lined. The rebuilt unit was a four berth, and the washroom was dispensed with (we carried a toilet tent and porta-potti for non-serviced sites). There were two table sizes that when used together formed the front double bed base. Access to the hanging wardrobe was a side door adjacent to the entrance door, while the stepped front provided two small cupboards with a mirror above, and also included the gas heater. High level lockers all had side hinged doors, with the exception of those at the front, where drop flaps were used.<br />The kitchen area was completely redesigned using the original equipment and fittings, and additional 12V electric lighting was added to the standard gas light. One of the rear windows was cut down to half height, before adding new bodywork metalwork, to allow for an additional rear bunk support.<br />Later a bespoke gas locker was manufactured to carry two gas cylinders (4.5kg butane and/or 3.9kg propane) and the spare wheel. 5 used Privately Excellent https://www.caravantalk.co.uk/community/uploads/monthly_06_2013/ccs-6-0-69856500-1372629203.jpg,monthly_06_2013/ccs-6-0-94831500-1372629207.jpg,monthly_06_2013/ccs-6-0-86687700-1372629210.jpg,monthly_06_2013/ccs-6-0-78016000-1372629186.jpg,monthly_06_2013/ccs-6-0-33831600-1372629190.jpg,monthly_06_2013/ccs-6-0-19681300-1372629193.jpg,monthly_06_2013/ccs-6-0-94351400-1372629196.jpg,monthly_06_2013/ccs-6-0-07908400-1372629200.jpg,monthly_06_2013/ccs-6-0-31627800-1372629183.jpg,monthly_06_2013/ccs-6-0-48430200-1372629179.jpg Yes

Good starter 'van, although all that remained of the original was the chassis and running gear and modified bodywork following the conversion outlined below.
