A Campervan is..........

Loading the kids in the van , grabbing a bottle of wine then whisking Laura from work for an impromptu lunchtime picnic in the spring sunshine....what more do you need.

Rear Seat Belts

As with many older campervans, mine didn't have rear seatbelts. When I first converted the van the rear seat had one three point inertia belt and one lap belt( as the cupboards on one side blocked the upper belt mounting point). Now this was fine initially , but now with two growing children we needed to replace the lapbelt with a more secure three point inertia belt. After some head scratching, we decided the best route was to remove the rear cupboard so I could fit the belt behind to the the proper mounting points. Then carefully modifying the cupboard so the seat belt could pass through it. It works a treat and more importantly the kids are safe and secure.
