Thought we'd show you how much work we (or should I say Paul) put in to get Winnie ready for our big adventure - what a turnaround eh!!!  

Don't think we'd envisaged just how much work would need doing, and how much of our lives would revolve around it - it was all camper this, camper that - sure we must have bored you all!Also, weren't accounting for all the troubles encountered along the way, such as a leaky roof (joy), and to be honest to this day I wouldn't trust it 100% against leaks, but we sealed it as much as physically possible!!And OH MY GOD, what a bloody nightmare stripping the Decal stickers from the outside for it to get resprayed - I don't want to see another heat gun as long as I live!!!  

To be honest, we had a great group of guys doing the re-upholstry, curtains & the respray who all stuck to their deadlines & did a fab job - doesn't happen often for them to be on time & in budget - WOW! But all in all, I think we bagged a bargain, and made her our own, with a lot of hard work & effort
(6 months to be exact!!), but it was definately worth it to see the results!Hope you like her!!xxx
