    VanShades Barn Door Window Pods

    Camper Build To Replace Our Stolen One

    Unfortunately some lovely people stole our trusty t5 in October. The van never turned up so we had to start the job of replacing it. Found this 18 plate 150 highline and set to work on it late November. All the work is done by me except the roof fitting.
