New Ratmobile mods
« on: September 06, 2015, 14:47:43 »
Pretty much a repeat of Ratmobile XXXIV (I forget)  :shy:

Basic amenities to make the whole Vanping experience as comfortable as possible  :old:

This Van has some handy under-seat storage, perfect for a second Battery





This is connected to the main Battery via a Split Charge Relay, this stops me ever flattening the engine Battery and is charged when on the move.



Wired into a small Fuse Box. A handy Volt Meter to tell me the state of the second Battery and some 12V Sockets for charging those devices one may carry for a trip alone in the back of a Van  :)



Lights and a couple of small 12V Heaters





Comms



Film Star Glasses









Vanping, It's the way forward  :)

All nice, but ... you won't need the film star glasses.

Vanping - A stepping stone towards a proper hotel  :)

I'm telling you It's the way forward  :)

At the West Wales meet the Vanpers there were;

Josh's Mum & Dad
Earthcore
Son of Milz (who robbed Josh of his Quad championship) :)  Josh, perhaps being a Vanper will help you next year?
