My name is Sam, 25 and I live in London.
Myself and my fiance work at festivals on bars over the Summer and are looking for a van to do a very simple (and very cheap..!) conversion on. We don't need anything fancy and have been leaning towards an LDV Convoy, partly due to their simple, reliable Transit engine, their wide load width (so we can sleep sideways), and their looks!
At the moment I'm really stuck between a hi-top (as we're both quite tall and would like to be able to stand up inside it) or a normal roofed one. Does anyone have any experience with this, does it make a huge difference to comfort? I'd like it to be nice enough to go on holiday in, not just somewhere to sleep.
I'm also having the same dilema over SWB and LWB.
I've also been considering a minibus instead of a van due to them having more windows, I don't want to end up with a dark and dingy van but privacy is also important! Again, does anyone have any experience or thoughts regarding this?
Unfortunately, due to the LEZ (London Emission Zone), we are restricted from buying anything older than 2002, and due to budget, we are limited to ~£1500.
I would appreciate any advice or input from you!
