Van is, almost, ready to go

Finally found time to take “Sunnyboy” (our van) into the caravan repair garage, “carafix”, to find the pesky little leak. They found a rivet that holds the awning in place had worked loose leaving a very small hole, but that was all that was needed in torrential rain to get the back corner of the van, over the bed area, very damp.

Half hour later with new rivets and glue pumped into the holes at a very reasonable cost of $40, we are now water proof. We hope!!!! 

Now just need a full mechanical check.

22 days to “d-day”………

  1. Thanks for comment Sami We have really bonded with this van and are looking forward to setting out. We will also find having audio books will be great for listening to in the evenings in the camping grounds.


  2. Good luck with “Sunnyboy”, he will take care of you the same way you are taking care of him 🙂
