What they say…
We took our cue from Old Bluey (previous conversion). We’d seen the work in progress and could tell it was top quality, and loved the idea of proper, strong colour. We added in some ideas of our own, and suggestions from friends who already have conversions.
Brett and Kat were also invaluable with the practicalities of planning. From the start we knew we wanted the biggest bed possible. We’re in our fifties and like a bit of comfort! So Brett took that as a starting point, and worked around that. We also knew we wanted a fridge, but could cope with cooking outside under an awning, so that was the next piece in the jigsaw. It was then up to Brett to find ways to maximise storage around our needs, and boy has he done it! As well as the big bits and bobs, we love the little touches, like the reading lights on stalks, and the retractable coat hooks in the back, features we found ourselves using straight away on our first weekend away.
We’re so happy with our colour scheme. During the planning many friends made diplomatic remarks about it being a ‘brave’ choice, but they all agree that in the flesh our van is a thing of beauty. We just need a couple of finishing touches. I’m getting some yellow retro floral fabric for some curtain tie backs, and I think that will finish the job beautifully.
