I don't have an Instagram account but your link let me see a selection of photos before requiring a log-in.

Looks good and another 'Rare' one being saved, well done so far.

Re: Introductory post

I think if you follow the route you have detailed above ^^^^ you will be making things even harder for yourself.

Re: Introductory post

If you are intending to fit a filler section to increase your roof height, why not go the whole hog and make the section hinged with the ability to raise the full length of the roof. This has been done successfully by a few others before; There was one I saw which hinged sideways (like a Dormobile) ...

Re: Another Carawagon!

Looks great Robin. Well done, another (v. rare) 5 door.

Dormy's first trip THIS YEAR !

Went on a trip overseas early in the year and got stuck there for 6 months due to covid. Finally home and now had a chance to organise a small trip out in Dormy. I did give Dormy a thorough check-over and test drive first. Went camping for a couple of nights with our daughter and two grandsons. Only...

Re: "Hei" from Norway

I was bumbling about on the internet (as you do at the moment) and came across a photo which reminded me of something. Doesn't this roof look familiar ?: -

There are a lot of trim pieces involved in fitting the roof lining all around the Dormobile. The 'Silent Gliss' rails and screws are used as part of that fixing where they run around above the windows. The biggest bit of lining is obviously in the front and is locked in place either side by the curt...
