That looks ace.

Interested to see what wheel combo also...

Wonder if I could make my 2wd look like that?

many thanks....wheels are black 15" mefros from campervan culture and general grabber At2 tyres

Suspension is as I bought it and as far as I know its standard syncro caravelle suspension. Need to see how it copes with the westy interior before I think about changing it.

You can easily change you 2wd as there are several places selling lift kits now :mrgreen:

Nice one keith.
Are you saying you don't need a fridge vent if you have a compressor fridge? I have a compressor fridge from factory (trakka), but it does have a vent in the side panel. I'd rather it didn't though!?

Just looks a little higher than mine. Though I'm on 14" rims, with US spec tyres (27 x 8.50 R14)

Here's us in the summer (I'm yellow!) my brother is in the rather speedy twin slider caravelle running on svx power and rather more than a usual amount of mods.

Guess where?

Yes mate I went for a National Luna portable compressor fridge, will sit where the buddy seat would be on trips and in the garage when we don't need it :mrgreen:

Thought I'd offer up the fridge today and see how it will fit, it came with a tray I can fix to the floor but Im going to fit a strap around it instead. Its a good fit leaving plenty of room for getting from the front to the back. Its a National Luna 40L so plenty of room. I'd been watching portable compressor fridges for ages on fleabay and this came up at a very low price just down the road from me so very happy to get a bargain :mrgreen:

The van now has hook up installed :mrgreen: Hopefully I'll get the rest of the leisure bits and cooker unit in tomorrow.

Martyn @ Travelvolts - https://www.travelvolts.net - has been a great help and recommended the Victron IP65 12/10 for my leisure battery. He also adapted the cable to install straight into in the westy loom's junction box, all part of his excellent service and his prices for leccy bits are very good too.

Here is the charger, I can also connect to it via bluetooth and check the battery status and control the charger which is nice :mrgreen:

I've seen a lot of photos of UK sockets installed in Westys but they are usually domestic sockets and don't look great IMO. This is a nice westy mod for UK owners. The westy sockets are Berker and direct replacements are available in UK style.

Cheap black & white are available here and I found a brown one here
