The original shower compartment was pretty cramped to shower in, so I had it replaced with a custom designed basin-based washroom, with slide-out toilet below. I lived in the Sunhome full time for several years and simply wore it out, eventually crawling to a halt at Dawsons Danbury factory, where it got swapped for.... see below!
A petite Dawson's
Danbury conversion, one of the last they ever made before going out of
business! Based on a Seat Terra, this was more of a day-trip van. The bed was
only 4 feet wide when made up and it blocked the lower cupboards. Still, with
running water and cooking facilities, it was a lot of motorcaravan in such a
car-like form factor! We had Danbury make several tweaks to the prototype's
design for us - we needed a single 'overcab' locker door and a Propex space
heater, among other bits and pieces. Danny was very sadly
written off in a car crash
in 1990 and was badly missed!
A custom-converted Bedford Midi van with fixed roof. The L-shaped settee made up into a good size double, with access to nearly all facilities with bed made up. A great design, spoilt only by the lack of standing room.
because of (apparently insoluble) major carburettor problems - we simply got
fed up with constantly taking it to pieces!
