    Cost of conversion
    In case it is of any use or interest to anyone, here are the costs of converting Tin Tent 2. These prices are from 2 years ago, and don’t cover the time, and materials for the cupboards and bed etc. It will however give some idea of what this project cost.

    SMEV 911 Sink + burner unit + fitting kit £221

    Lining carpet and spray glue £160
    Floor Carpet £38
    Storage Nets £36
    Hammerite White Paint £9
    Lights (assorted) £68
    Table Leg £10
    4xreading lamps £18

    Totalling just over £6,100

    Add to that wood, ply for the units and floor, screws, glue, cupboard handles, tap, water container, water hose, submersible pump, 240v socket, 240v RCD unit, wire, Battery Pack, material for seats and curtains, 12v multi sockets with extension wire, battery lights, cargo net, curtain railing, insulation bubble-wrap, aluminium trim, air vents, hinges, mains extension lead, shower rail, burner splash-guard, table mountings, step, carbon monoxide alarm, camping gaz cylinder + regulator, and loads more things I have forgotten I’m sure – including many hours of time!!!

      Thanks Ian?

      Forgot to add that I had a quote for a lifting root. At about £1,500 it was beyond my budget.

            Thankyou very much for all that detail. I've been debating with myself all winter about whether to look at a demountable Romahome or to convert a Carry (I have very specific needs and whatever I choose will be my only vehicle).

            I don't have the skills to do a conversion myself, but having an idea of costs is a real help - and I love the look of your 'Tin Tent'
