getting the Canterbury Pitt all set up ready for summer

OK, so I know it is only just the beginning of the New Year, and January seems a long way away from the glorious days of summer, but it is never too early to start getting your ready VW Split screen camper all sorted and ready for the summer sun and road trips a plenty!

Although the Ninove event in mid March cannot really be classified as a ‘summer’ event, it has helped give me more of a focus on getting a small list of things sorted before heading off to Belgium.

First off I need to have a good sort through the van and get a few bits tidied up, but whilst taking the rear interior cushion covers off for a wash, I could not help myself and give the cargo door mounted Canterbury Pitt cooker a quick once over and set up the cargo door canopy and pretend that summer was nearly here!

The Canterbury Pitt door mounted cooker was one of the original features that really attracted to me to the camper in the first place, I loved its simple utility functionality.

The lower section door folds down to reveal additional storage area for any cooking utensils or condiments you want to include.

The top door lifts up and the main Canterbury Pitt cooker unit folds down in its aluminium lined cooking enclosure. Although it has a grill unit built-in, at the moment its missing a grill pan, so this is something I need to source to add to the unit to complete it and increase the healthier option of grilling certain foods rather than simply frying them!

On top it has a simple 2 ring layout for cooking, which is more than enough to come up with an array of meals on the go! I just need to give it all a proper clean up, source a small grill pan and we’re good to go!
