Hi, we have been caravanners for a few years and on our second caravan. However, now our wee boy is getting older we need a bigger caravan, our compass rallye 2 berth is fab but just not big enough for 3 of us now! The problem is we can only fit a 20 foot caravan (including tow hitch) in the driveway and cannot afford storage. Has anyone got any experience of modifying a caravan internally? My other half is a joiner and we have thought of buying a 2 berth with end bathroom and removing it, leaving toilet and putting fixed bed in. I don't understand why manufacturers don't make smaller 4 berths! However we are on a small budget and can only afford to buy a used caravan anyway. I like having the 2 long bench seats and would rather give up shower & sink in bathroom than seats. Anyone any experience of any diy in a van and putting in fixed bed? Any useful ideas or info much appreciated.
Anyone know how to remove the Alko pads to check them - and fit them back in again ?! Also, if needed, where to get replacements? My 'van snaked a bit too much recently and it wasn't windy, and the 'van was sensibly loaded. I suspect that the stabiliser is not working as effectively as it should. Thanks from someone who wishes to stay safe - any suggestions gratefully received.
