Hello hello greetings one and all...
Welcome to our story so far My fiancé LJ and I were due to have our wedding in June 2017 at Mamhead house however in November 2016 sadly we and many others found out the venue / owner went into liquidation meaning we lost our wedding and all our money! This was due to their expected fraudulent business and is still being investigated.
One month later we were gifted “pay it forward” style a lovely 1993 Toyota Hiace semi hitop long wheel base campervan called Bessie. From the lovely previous owner wished it go to a good home, being that we have always wanted to do our honeymoon by campervan (exploring England, Scotland & Europe). So after loosing our wedding we felt this was our silver lining & life gifting back to us.
It’s a good runner & has no massive mechanical issues but the bodywork was rusty and needed some rebuilding and TLC.
After receiving the van we stored it off road for a few months so we could re-save a wedding deposit for our new venue.
Presently the campervan is in body shop having it’s makeover. We have already invested over £4K so far however the estimated quote to finish the campervan has just x3 in price! Oh such fun!
So with our wedding fast approaching in August 2018 we won’t be able to continue renovating as planned meaning very sad faces and no camper-moon. So in search of the silver lining once more... it’s been suggested we share our story with you lovely bunch. So here we are, proposing that for the pledges received & should you want to use the van (as in a pay it back style) you get a “reward”/ “hire” Of the campervan when all work is completed should be on the road by early summer 2018 if not before ... yipee!
The camper sleeps 2 adults on a comfy roll bed, has a kitchen area with sink, fridge, gas cooker on counter top, van has a Electric hookup if need be, portable Porter loo, heating, seat belts for 4 adults. Also has side awning.
