All will be revealed

24 Sep


The upholstery is back with Drivelodge. The template for the cab curtain arrived on Monday following a postcode issue. The final touches are being put to our campervan.
My wife is busying herself to complete the cab curtain ready to collect the factory fresh conversion.
Completion has come at one of the busiest times in our business life! We are struggling to find the time to pick up the “Nevada” , Dinkum’s Kamper, even after such an extended wait.
BUT, we are just days away now from revealing much more about the Nissan campervan. Looking forward to getting some photos taken and a video tour of the facilities. Then it’s a trial night out, a picnic with our guests , Kate and Paul, then the real adventures begin. there will be minor additions and mods to do, I am sure, but at least we will be able to start enjoying all the work carried out at Drivelodge.
Watch this space.

    Good news Dinkum, Cannot wait to see it….. Please can you give us a complete price breakdown when done?

    Also what was the date of delivery has it run a bit over schedule?

      Thanks chaps! The van should have been ready around 2nd July, so it has over run massively by 12 weeks! When I know the background details I will let you know why. I shall be giving some breakdown in costs but expect a total (thus far, without retrofit cruise etc) of around £26,000 to £27,000 ? This compares well with many conversions on say a 2nd hand VW T5 for example. But this NV200 is brand new, very well “specced” and has loads of extras such as blown air heating , LED lighting and so on. More later. Discussions welcomed later on value for money and why go down the NV200 path and so on .
