    Having has to great outings, Camper Jam & Busfest. I now think I have caught a bug. My symptoms are that I have to spend pocket fulls of cash. I think I must of caught it from @Fish or @Deaky. My dilemma is do ride the bug out and keep my Caravelle, buy LWB panel to convert or spec a new Cali Beach

    Air suspension on a LWB panel in Turmeric plus a snow plough on the front to trench out the road ahead so you can drive along actually below the surrounding road surface... oh and six 15" Sundowners in a single ported enclosure driven with about 30kw but only playing 20 to 40Hz tones, don't need music adding distortion!

    Dilemma update,
    keep Caravelle and get £11k conversion ( pop top, leisure battery & Webasto remote heater)
    Buy 69 Plate Cali Ocean
    Buy 19 Plate LWB T6 and £11k conversion as above

    Thoughts please

    How often do you think you will go away/sleep in it? Will you spend the money, then feel that you have to go away all the time to justify it?

    None of it makes any financial sense, you'll have to do what you feel is right for you.

    They all cost about the same money which makes it more difficult to choose ha ha

    Convert a LWB PV with your own options. There’s so many options when converting from scratch. It’s like Christmas :tongue bounce:
    The Cali’s SWB, with the sliding door on the wrong side. Lot’s of nice options/ touches but not for everyone.

    So the shopping list is as follows
    Webasto remote heating
    110amp leisure battery
    Reimo pop top
    Fiamma F45 awning
    OEM multiflex
    Another set of alloys ( don’t tell the wife )

    Maybe a sport line front spoiler

    I reckon there is £12k there :sick:
