Then its been sorting ourselves out for holiday, finally got myself a backseat organiser that work well enough on a ISRI seat.

Then we was off! Kept to France this time (other than a slight dip into Belgium at the end) Visiting Bayeux, Nantes, Gorge d'heric, Cirque des mourez, Avignon, Gorge d'verdon, Provins and then to Bruges for our usual shopping and beer drinking day!
Van performed faultlessly, did just over 2200 miles, averaged 28.5 mpg
With the van running so fault free, why not modify? :D Really do think i am going to swap to rear discs and larger front vented. Would mean swapping to 14" rear bearing carriers, which i'll get new ones of those and slowly swap over.

Bonne vacances!

Vented rear discs a waste of time and money imho. They dont work hard enough because of the pressure reducing/inertia valve (which is only there to stop rear drums locking up when braking hard and unladen afaik)
