Episode 9: Van Conversion, the Sequel – Graham Kelly is the membership lead for SBMCC. He battled leaks, rust and dodgy electrics to rebuild a converted LDV van for family holidays.
Graham Kelly bought his self-built LDV postal van for European adventures with his wife before having children, but soon found himself radically rebuilding the van to meet the needs of 3. He is also the club secretary and forum moderator for the Self-Build Motor Caravan Club (SBMCC).
Graham met the challenges of multiple leak repairs, rust and completely reconfiguring his van with the support of his wife Gemma.
Now the van is still going strong and has become a 4th of the family (or is the son the 4th member, as the van technically came first?).
He also talks about the SBMCC and how inspirational this group has been to him during the course of the van build.
