    1. Aww thanks for that lovely comment Kathy! πŸ‘ And yes I’m looking forward to showing you my future adventures around the UK 😁. You have a brilliant week and I’ll see you in the next video πŸ˜‰πŸ‘

  3. You really don’t want to be cooking in there, cook outside under the tailgate πŸ‘πŸ»
    Also, when sleeping in there, try and leave a window open slightly, otherwise condensation will be a problem.

    1. Cheers for the advice πŸ‘ I’ve invested in a carbon monoxide alarm and have have installed some wind deflectors to be able to crack the windows πŸ™‚πŸ‘

    2. @Brendan Explores wind deflectors are great for opening the windows slightly as they deflect the rain too.
      If you do cook in there (I think you’ll only try it once) make sure the cooker is never between you and your exit.

    3. @Pee Gee good advice and I’ve also brought a fire extinguisher just incase as well πŸ™‚πŸ‘

    4. @Brendan Explores get a fire blanket too, a 1m sq one will do fine and are only about Β£12-Β£15, a lot less messy than an extinguisher πŸ˜‰

  4. 1st installment of pimp my ride turned out well buddy, taking shape really well πŸ‘Œsimple design, but yet, effective πŸ‘ plenty of adventures in that automobile, look forward to them πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
