    Hi everybody

    Hello, I've been lurking and reading this forum for some time now. I thought it was time to "Man Up" and register.
    I have been considering making our Citroen Picasso into a camper, but have now thought about selling it and buying a Citroen Dispatch combi (not the new type) and doing a removable camper conversion.
    We need to have a everyday use vehicle with proper removable rear seats for kids, grandkids and general hangers on.
    The dispatch fits the bill, being a little smaller that a T4 VW.
    Anyway I shall be asking questions and picking brains as time goes on if that's OK.

                  Hello and welcome!

                  Your idea of a self-build 'adaptation' of a Dispatch sounds good. This is one of the models on my shortlist when it's time to replace my aging Kangoo, although it's a little larger than I need (but I'm sure I'd quickly fill the extra space!).

                  I'd be interested to see your work and and when it progresses.

                  Good luck.

                    Thank you for the warm welcome,

                    The Dispatch seems the better compromise between a car & van.

                    We are looking for the same as everybody else a car, people carrier, load lugger. tow our folding camper, camper van, cheap to run and easy to park. not a big ask is it.

                    I started looking and it's proving difficult to find a dispatch/expert/scuda that isn't a high mileage taxi or had the floor cut away for wheelchair access.
                    I may have to consider a van version, but I would prefer a combi as it already has windows,seats & interior trim.

                    The search goes on
