Collected the van from Phil at Wanderlust late July, a bit over a  year after ordering the vehicle.

Before collection the vehicle was sent to the weigh bridge and came in at 2,260 Kg.

The side lift roof comprises two metal side rails, a fibreglass foam single roof section and fibreglass fairings front and back.

The back windows were installed with the conversion.

My next job following the conversion was window tinting.

Next up was fitting of Seikel underbody engine/transmission protection. This item was supplied by Trakka in Sydney and delivered directly to Brisbane and Caravan Repair at Rocklea. I booked a convenient time and waited during fitting. This only took a half hour and I was on my way. It was a pleasure dealing with both organisations.

Jobs currently outstanding is fitting some decent rims and some seat covers.
