weather improving, curtains almost ready...

Due to take her out this weekend for our first family weekend. Fingers crossed for warmer weather. Think we'll be staying close to home if we can find a friendly site nearby... perhaps on the Mendips. Left it late to sort out - typically.
Still waiting for curtains to be made, they won't be ready for the weekend so we'll rig up something temporary for a little privacy. I have to say she looks great even without touching her outer skin. People keep asking if I'm going to buff up the mirror...

Floor and door edges

Posted 01-31-2011 at 02:56 PM by dave f (1956 Overlander: 26' of iconic family fun. Potentially.)

A couple of answer to questions:

Flooring - 100% natural rubber tiles.
In the UK there are certainly quite a few suppliers online. Lead times for delivery can be really tiresome (no pun intended). I got plenty of samples, shopped around and found someone with stock. I've laid rubber floor myself and quite enjoyed it. Once laid and sealed, it can be buffed to a high shine and is very very durable. I love it.

Door edging - aluminium edge strip!
Apparently...

Latest interior pics

Posted 01-17-2011 at 02:38 PM by dave f (1956 Overlander: 26' of iconic family fun. Potentially.)

Just received these lovely pics from ARC. We're just missing a few finishing touches, retro curtains and a few cushions to make it feel cosy.

Bunk beds work really well, really happy with all the details. Great to see the old stove back in again too.

refurb *almost complete*

Posted 01-09-2011 at 10:32 AM by dave f (1956 Overlander: 26' of iconic family fun. Potentially.)

Just returned from month in New Zealand with my wife and daughters, including a very successful 10 days in a camper van so feeling much more confident about the prospect of using our trailer with all 6 of us crammed in there. Also now much happier about the camping-in-a-trailer regime. Although it definitely makes a difference having warm weather - North Island NZ was into a summer drought but when the rains came we were stuck in our camping a little more. But the kids still enjoyed it.
