Before we start, This isn't mine, it belongs to the missus; but I'm the one doing all the work, so it's still my project!
 
We have a couple of boxer dogs, so getting away for the weekend can be difficult to find an understanding B&B/cottage or even a campsite that accepts dogs can be tricky. Enter Project Camper:
 
2009, mk7 transit with 100k on the clock, in white (obviously)...
 
First task, side windows; fitted by a man not me this time:

Next job, SEATS!
 
These seats are awesome! Mk4 Mondeo Titanium X seats. Transit seats were not all that comfy, and just not that cool... so purchased a second single seat base (normally a bench for passengers) from the 'bay, knocked up a custom sub-from from 3mm box-section and:

Damn right the passenger seat swivels!
 
Insulated the interior with bubble foil suff, followed by celotex panels and expanding foam:

Carpet and flooring time, carpet lined the van, then wrapped the existing ply panels and re-installed them:

I'd have probably gone for black or grey, but she wanted beige and its her money so she gets beige...
 
Floor and floor underlay are left over from when I did our lounge, so bonus free mod!

Stretch carpet is actually pretty easy to work with, even the wheel arches wrapped ok. Next was the roof: ply wrapped in carpet (already insulated with celotex) with 4 LED spot lights:

Next up will be paint and install of cupboard units (another 'bay special...), wiring (got a second 'leisure' battery and pre-made wiring kit!), sink/hob and rock'n'roll bed.
 
Stay tuned...

Decided to keep the wheels at 15"; thinking it'll be easier getting in and out of fields etc with a bigger tyre, plus the comfort factor for long distances. They've got a slightly lower offset than the stock steels. Need to paint calipers next.

Then put all the peices together:

Need to get electrics sorted next and plumb in all gas and water etc.

Coming on nicely.

 

Not sure on the colour choices myself, but we know the rules... what the wife wants the wife gets!
