Campervan ready for Kingsbarns ??
« on: August 30, 2015, 05:46:31 PM »
Been working toward getting my 1990 Ford Transit coachbuilt camper on the road in time for the Kingsbarns weekend. Not been away in it since 2009 due to one thing and another although it has been through an MOT every year. Got the cab body done up in the spring (new wings, sills and door bottoms) but all the internal equipment was an unknown quantity (water heater, fridge, etc.) only things not working are 1 strip light and an extractor fan but can live without these !! Away on Wednesday to Coldingham for a couple of nights (about 30 miles away) so if all goes well it should make it to Kingsbarns !!! Wish me luck ??? :o :o ??? ???
