    Today Penny received new cream door cards and carpet under both seats. New flooring in the back of the camper the other day too.

    There is whole section relating to replacement fuel hoses and what hoses you and should not use.
    With modern day aggressive fuels old fashion low preasure rubber hoses are no good ,had to many leak without warning so now ,I use ONLY high preasure fuel injection hose which is able to handle these aggressive fuels and in line high preasure thereby reducing the risk of fire.
    Food for thought isnt it.

    Permanently mounted our hot water camp shower so that it is now connected to the water tank, pump, and gas bottle all the time. It slides out from inside the wardrobe smoothly on drawer runners.

    Previously it was stored under the bed but I found it was too much hassle to set up when we wanted to use it. I had to cut the rear of the fibreglass cupboard to make a sort of drawer and install new shelves and timber etc inside.

    Super happy with how it turned out and it is going to make our free camping much easier and enjoyable! (Juzz insisted on modelling the shower,....sorry)

    Aspudis ,g/day.
    I like the idea,and being self sufficent goes to a whole new level when free camping, but how much water are you carrying when free camping , the original tanks that came with the coverversions were onlly about 40 ltrs if i remember correctly which would not last long at all ,is there a tent or type of pull around that goes at the back for privacy when shower is in use. If so show us how you have achieved that.
    Overall ,great stuff ,like it .
    Chris, T.

    Hey Chris.
    Yep the tank is 40l. We only use it for washing up in the sink and showering. Our drinking/ cooking water is in a 10l container with a tap.

    The 40l tank has been enough on some of our longer trips because I fill it up pretty often with a hose kept under the front seat at service stations etc.

    The shower water flow can be wound down to less than 4l per minute so a couple of quick showers turning it off in between soaping up etc has never been a problem. Swimming, surfing and beach showers most days are good but it’s been nice to have the shower with us as a backup;).

    Don’t use a privacy tent most of the time because we usually find a secluded spot or you can wear swimmers etc.

    The hose is fairly long too (I’d say 3m) so you can stand a bit away. We do carry a pop up privacy tent now though all the time and it gets stored on top of the rear shelf under the Kombi pop top. Here is a picture of it on another trip a while back when Penny was still red.

    Good stuff mate , well done , i would have thought u would require a lot more than that , 80 to 100 ltrs but being thrifty is the way to go.

    Yeah I could fit another one if I removed the step I think. But fitting it isn’t the problem anyway Chris....
    The wife has currently placed a ‘non negotiable bankroll stop’ on any Kombi related spending :(:D. Extra water will have to wait. Haha.
