Well after much deliberation I've decided to keep my C15 on the road for as long as possible whilst I search for a bigger van. I'm not bowled over by what is currently available within reasonable distance so I have decided to be sensible (gawddd that was a hard decision) and to run little Snail as long as he will go. His front tyres are dangerously low tread so I'm treating him to some new ones this morning, and he just got some shiny new tax as well. I'm going to buy myself one of those big instant start jump pack things in case I get stuck, and of course I'll have my comprehensive breakdown... so hopefully no disasters! Also decided that I'm going to practise my bodywork skills on him before I get stuck into a bigger van that will be my home for a while. Little Snail has a nice selection of rust spots and rotted bottoms of doors so I can have a good ol' crack at sanding/cutting all that out and rebuilding.
Sad that I can't find a bigger van that I'm excited about right now... but got to be sensible! And got to be patient.. good things come to those who wait, after all!
Wish me luck! [panic][panic]
