Thanks for all replies.
We camped for the first time in this van this weekend (700km trip to the north egean coast of Turkey for 2 days).
Everything worked fine, interior design proved to be very usable with lots of storage and living space.
I will add a vertical closet next to sink to place spice jars etc. which will also virtually seperate sitting/bedding area from cooking part.
 
Regards,

Rough and ready job done with a lot of free and recycled materials, particularly plywood and underfloor. Had to buy paint, lighting, batteries etc new; space age insulation a gift from a very generous friend! Still a work in progress, the cab exterior and box interior will both be getting a fresh coat of white.

I found out today that my LT isn't actually a horsebox conversion, it used to be a cookie/bread delivery van back in the day!

All I need to do now is track down some new back doors for it!

Just moved it off the road for the winter, I'll whack some photos up next time I go over the bridge to work on it

Here's a photo of my kitchen unit. I'll get a few pics of the rest when I pull my finger out.

The outer cupboard door opens to support a chopping board/worktop extension, which is handy.

I've clad the whole thing in ply, over rockwool and that ally/bubblewrap stuff, and put a caravan roof doings over the kitchen, and a big lexan boat hatch above the bed.
There's all the wiring for 4 circuits of dimmable LED lights and the stereo/telly behind the boards, and 3 batteries and fuses etc below the bed.
I need to put in a wardrobe and shelves at the back, and a little unit above the sink, for easy-access tea and coffee etc, and also I must get the woodburner in and awning on if i want to use it this winter.

Hi All,

Things are slowly progressing re our Austrian Fire Brigade LT35 Bus - the purpose of it's purchase being to convert to a camper. 

I have been trawling through posts trying to get an idea of your conversions which look pretty impressive and I must admit somewhat daunting. But I get 'lost' in the pictures and can't really visualise what you've done

Would any of you who have done a conversion be happy to share your basic plan/drawings of your layout? Or do any of you know if there are plans out there either in books or on the net specific to LTs

I am after doing something clean, simple and functional - bed, a table, something to cook on, a little fridge.

I'd really appreciate any layout plans if any of you were happy to do that.

Thank you. Best Ben
