interior ideas development

As the clocks go back, the days grow longer and the sun makes longer appearances during the day, I’m looking forward to getting out and about more in the camper this year. I’ve already got some ideas for trips that I’d like to make to different parts of the UK and a little further afield in Europe as well, so with this in mind, I really need to get a ‘working’ interior resolved as soon as…

Unfortunately, the replica Devon interior option didn’t work out, so the recently installed full width rock ’n’ roll bed will now become part of our longer term plans! So whilst away working in London, I’ve been busy doodling ideas of how we could use the space and what we would actually need to make it work for us. Ideas on paper are good, but always good to actually sit in the space and play around with various elements like the vintage cool box, cooker, subwoofer to see how they fit in reality. It’s like being a kid playing with Lego blocks again – happy days!

We want to keep things fairly minimal, as the more storage you create, the more you tend to take! The basics in terms of bed, fridge and cooker we already have as various separate items, it’s a case of will they all work/fit in the space? The one thing we don’t have currently in the camper is a table. This is something that Lorna is especially keen on me making again in some form! I’ve always liked the rear over head storage units found in SO42 Westfalia campers or like the one in my old Canterbury Pitt interior. This sort of thing may also be on the cards, so looks like I might be a bit busy making a few bits!

I need to plan things out so any 240v/12v electrics can be put in place before we get around to putting any units, door cards and floor finishes in place. Then of course I want to get the stereo, component speakers and subwoofer fitted. What was an empty space, soon quickly fills up – always good to have a challenge!

    • Hi Joop, I’m back home now after a couple of days on the road camping! I did some research on a car audio forum I use (www.talkaudio.co.uk) and there are some great reviews of an unbranded sound deadening sold by a user called Loudboy, most people rate it as much better performing and more affordable than most branded alternatives such as dynamat etc. So this is what I used and would highly recommend it from my experience! Heres the thread with details etc, hope it helps?

      So what are you thinking of putting it in?
