So far the plan is simple. Convert the Land Rover to make a bed in the back with storage underneath. If you have come on here to find some incredible £5000 conversion of a Landy to become some hotel on four wheels goddess then you are on the wrong page. If you have come to this page though because you like the idea of a project that won't break the bank and can be achievable - then you have come to the right place. I could pretend I did this project solo, but that isn't very believable to those that know me well. I am good with a hammer, cracking with ideas and full of arm power for sawing, but I need a bit of help piecing these bits together. On comes Tim (the boyf) to help me out. I needed to think of inventive ways to save on space and to make storage compartments with a limited budget. A bed, shower (not just rely on wild swimming), a cooking storage space, a way to attach bikes, take a kayak and paddle board all on a shoestring within 8 weeks. I want to show you our rights, wrongs, must buys and don't waste your time ons so you can see our Landy conversion and hopefully be able to do it too. There are some awesome converted campers out there but we wanted to show you an affordable, creative way of doing the same thing but at a realistic price. Follow our journey and see how we manage to do it and where we source our items from in order to make our little dream a reality. It will be an awesome way to exPAW and start Your Dogventures...
