Acquired a low mileage 2017 boxer van which is about to be converted in to a camper so will be looking for alloys, awning,and anything else that might go in a van conversion.
If it's cluttering up your shed I might just be wiling to buy it!
At least I will know it will built properly!

Thanks Paul helpful as ever, the conversion needs to sleep 3 and be based on a mwb. On the drawing board for now but the van may well get used for the next aid trip to Ukraine if I can find the time! up!

Wow! Guessing a front impact as no pictures of cab. Can’t have been at speed though since the internals look immaculate. Maybe the chassis is out of alignment. Quite tragic really.

Interesting to see if it sells, don’t envy anyone trying to disassemble AS cabinetry, it’s not exactly designed for that!

When I did my Peugeot Boxer conversion I found the Self Build Motorhome Club of great help.  If you haven't come across them already they're at https://www.sbmcc.co.uk/index.html

Thanks Tony

Our son has already converted a Boxer minibus which he enjoyed for six years and recently sold at nearly double what it cost! I have seen 2016/7 pvc's in the mid £20K mark and they are selling quickly if nicely done. You can buy a modular pre cut interior for around £2K excluding fittings.
If you spent £5K on fitting out exactly to your layout and £10K on a decent van.... well let's do the math scratch head
