Here's the latest caravan renovation - took about 3 months worth of weekends and was great fun to do. Enjoy!

Looks "ahem" mint @RobPegley. Well done! 

 

Do you have any "before" photos of the van? 

 

And what make and model is it?

Hi Rob. Love what you have done with the caravan both inside and out. Looks awesome. I own a 1978 Jayco 23 ft on-site van and I am wanting to modernise it both inside and out but don’t have a clue where to start.
Am going to start with painting the inside. What paint is best to use on the inside of the caravan walls. Any advice you could give would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
