PostSubject: my sleeping quarters   Sat May 24, 2014 7:02 am



Here is the back of my Discovery with fitted denim window covers-velcro stuck to window edges & a caravan cushion covered 6 foot bed.

Its first test was a 4 day 4x4 trip to North Wales and was the best sleep I have ever had whilst camping. In its current state there is nowhere for the dog to sleep so Mk2 will be starting imminently.

There will be a large roof rack shortly ready for a summer trip to the Lake District.

It also now has a checker plate rear door card where I will be mounting a twin burner gas hob that folds down.

Any Peeping Tom's taller than 6ft can see in your Alpine windows, they need 'deniming' as well.

ANOTHER job!

One of the benefits of camping with your dog is the rather effective alarm they can be!

Thanks Ridgeback, great info for us.

I will post up some pictures tomorrow with my vehicles lay out. It is actually half a meter shorter than a disco has two very comfortable full sized double beds and a cab bunk option for a fifth, full inside kitchen that can be used while both beds are down and loads more stuff to be wowed by..

I am not trying to show off but this last year has been a total learning curve.

VW's are rather tardis-like. Another in that category is the original Mini. It's still a marvel of design to this day.

After our recent North Africa trip I was thinking I wanted to up grade but I can not think of anything more versatile than a properly upgraded Syncro. I have been thinking Unimog but they are just not as agile as how I drive around at the moment with a smaller foot print than a Disco.

Does the Syncro have low box? I must admit I am rather biased towards the green oval. Mainly for spares and ease of repair!
