    Working on my 2001 Nu Venture

    Just bought my first camper. A 2001 Nu Venture surf. It needs some work, but the bones seem good and the price was right. Just need advice on a few things I can’t find any info on please.
    Where’s the spare wheel ? Can’t find anywhere to put one so where’s it go ?
    where are the jacking points at the rear ?
    can I fit a tow bar ? If so who makes them ?
    anyone got a copy of the manual ? I’m a bit lost about how some things work like the electrics !
    apart from all that, I’m currently repairing the side skirts which I’ve removed. And looks like a leak from the toilet has rotted the floor at the rear so another big job. Any advice on this camper will be greatly appreciated
    cheers all

    Hello Martinez and welcome to the site.

    There are members on here with Nu Venture Surf experience so hopefully one of them will be along to assist you

      Hi welcome to the forum. I cannot help on a lot of your queries but I do know the Thetford toilet of that age has a known fault - the upgraded part is available. You can find a manual and parts list if you follow this link.

            Very useful thanks, and Hi to everyone. But my toilet looks more like the C200 not the C20. Just not sure exactly which model. I’m looking at replacing the bowl as it looks like something from Quatermass. Don’t know if it was originally beige, but it’s certainly dark brown now and I fear there’s something lurking in there waiting to pounce. I won’t mention what I found when I pulled the cassette out, in fact I doubt there’s a word for it that exceeds 4 letters !
            i did find some corroded AA batteries inside which I’m assuming has something to do with level (?) but as the leak has rotted the floor out I’ll have to take it all out anyway and refurb it. I took the fridge out today, by the looks of it the underneath was used by previous owner when the toilet was full, nasty stuff. But after much cleaning n scrubbing it’s coming up a treat. I need to get it roadworthy before spending too much more time on the interior and major job are the side skirts. There’s evidence of every curb driven over between here n John O’Groats so I’ve ordered glass fibre fabric and a big tin of P40. Fitted new door lock today but can’t get the key into either the back door or either of the side hatches, so looks like another wad of cash leaving my account soon eh
            cheers all

                It sounds as if you have a bit of a challenge on your hands. Will be worth it once you get your pride and joy up and running in the way you want. Enjoy the whole process, and start dreaming about your travels now, whilst you are working on the van!
                Carpe diem! :)

                    Ok thanks, any idea how the spare fits under there ? In a cradle ?
                    As for the towbar, I’ve seen more than one of these advertised with one fitted so somebody must know something different ?
                    Looking at the distance from the back wheels to where a hitch would be mounted makes me think it may not be that stable, but possible to fit a damper. I want to tow my motorbike cos it’s too big to fit in the van and even if it could my better half will complain about the smell

                      Why didn’t they fit the spare at the front above the cab ? Use one of those nice covers like on a 4x4 and it wouldn’t look so bad

                        yes underneath in a cradle. ..... on the sink side in the bed there is a small round bit of metal you turn to lower it if you fit an adapted towbar it will bring the back lower and probably exceed the weight limit for towing. it's only a berlingo van after all. if you put the spare over the cab it would get the bedding dirty

                        never saw fit a cover oops

                            On our Surf the side lockers use the rear door key so, if you have replaced the rear door lock, the new key won't work the lockers. Do you have the key for the original lock?

                              Hi and welcome. Hope you are DIY confident. Think i would have taken it to a specialist for a checklist of things that needed attention. Good luck with your project.
