Hi Russ and welcome to the forum
2005 Berlingo Multispace 1.6i Desire (Iron Grey)
If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.
Hi RUSS i HAD MY WINDOWS TINTED TO 25% AND dont need curtains as you cant see in , unless you put internal lights on. Saved all the bother of curtains. BUT I can see out really well. I considered actually converting both professionally and me doing it, but decided in the end to keep it simple, a work box on wheel inside with cooker etc in, this doubles as a seat if taken out, and allows everything to come out if two of us want to sleep in back. with seats taken out.

what you describe is what i've got in mind. Keeping it simple is deffinately my moto!
How much did your windows cost? I still like the idea of curtains, makes it feel a lot 'warmer' and cosier inside with curtains. Hoping to knock up something simple on either curtain wire or some studs of somesort (been down fabric-land today and seen some nice (cheap) material that goes well with the colour of the car)
Had a look at some temporary conversions on the net, and when (if) it stops raining, going to get out there with a tape measure and try to work out the best way of constructing a make-shift bed.
yes I thought of a bed at first as well, but instead opted for the self inflating mattress thingys as it can all be moved around, and in and out as needs arise.
Be good to see your thoughts.
I did consider taking one or two seats out permanently and fitting a bed [single] with storage under and a hinge up top bed, but decided in the end not worth it as my van has to be multifunctional.
