Love the idea of this, always liked the idea of having something like this and now I'm in the process of buying my DoKa back, I'll be watching intently ;)
Too many projects..... Not enough time!

Just think what you could do with this when it's finished apart from camping! Treehouse? or stackable (Dokular) or perhaps it could go on a boat! Love it - keep up the work and pics J Smile

Here's some inspiration (if you ever need  a bit). This build could be so seriously stylish, I've been inside one of these, and it would change the way you look at campervanning!

What do you think?

OK but bloody expensive @ €38,000 for an 8'6" cube Shocked I'm sure rowlesy could knock you up one a bloody sight cheaper than that LOLLOL

so the aformentioned caravan
 
 
 
 
looks tidy enough! but smells a bit musky!
 
then after most of the day taking out the windows and the aluminium trims and gutting the inside im left with this
 
 
then a bit more cutting and one side of the main panel removed ive got this
 
 
salvaged the bed/seating area with cusions, the 240 system, the 12v system and all the windows! so im thinking of one either side the small rectangular one in the front of the luton and if i can make a good job af making a return lip on the roof section i'd like to bob that big front window up there and make up some sturdier support arms for when its open? so now ive got some cutting and moving stuff around on my frame to do! ah well! i'm still glad its metal as the caravan body is rotten on both front corners and ditto on the back! more caravan abuse next week!LOL
