Re: Old '72 York Caravan reno

Hey @twocutekelpies,
I too have discovered the use of the electric knife for cutting foam, works a treat. If anyone is going to have a go I suggest practice on some scrap foam, to get the feel for it :smile:

Today I've been having fun with the Permastik magnetic insect screens from Bunnings.

Hi Rosemary @echopepper18 

I don't know of any work shops as such but I know there's quite a few like minded people on facebook. I'm in a few caravan renovation groups and there are a lot ideas thrown around and everyone is very encouraging. I'm not sure if I'm allowed to put links up but there's 2 main groups (fix it or renovate that caravan and caravan renovations), mainly Aussie but there are a few New Zealanders in there, they may have an idea of other groups over there. :smile:

Hi Rosemary (@echopepper18)

 

Welcome to Workshop, a community for D.I.Y. and gardening discussion. Your daughter will be more than welcome to join our community. We have wonderful people sharing helpful advice and inspiration every day. I'm sure she would get plenty of support and engagement for her caravan renovation. @RobPegley's How to renovate a caravan series would be a good place to start.
