  1. Thanks once again MonsterS. Just wasn’t sure if having original parts replaced would require me to inform insurance company.
  2. If I’ve understood correctly, it would still be the Tein suspension, but it would be readjusted to the vehicle’s original suspension level before I buy it. Does that sound correct?
  3. Thanks MonsterS. what if the suspension was reinstated to its original level. Would that make it ok as a camper?
  4. Thanks Kendo. Ive contacted the dealer and he’s said that the suspension can be put back to its original level. Would I still need to declare it to the insurance if I had the original suspension reinstated?
  5. Thanks Monster. Another question for you, if you don’t mind. Would a vehicle with lowered suspension be suitable for a camper conversion?
  6. Thanks very much for the replies everyone. Whilst I’m here, I’ve seen a van for sale in another part of the country and the dealer offers delivery. I can’t decide whether taking such an option would be ok, or is buying a car without seeing or test driving it just crazy even during a pandemic?
  7. Hello everyone. I’ve been looking at base vehicles to eventually have converted into a camper. I’ve seen a really nice one, but it has ‘Tein’ aftermarket suspension which means it’s been lowered. Would a lowered vehicle be unsuitable to convert? I’m thinking of speed bumps, hills etc

  9. I’ve been looking at some vans recently and very nearly bought one, but noticed that the headlights were extremely dull and yellow. Is this a serious problem and can it be easily rectified?
  10. Hello, I’ve heard recently about companies that help source vans from auction in Japan and sort out the import for a fee. Has anyone out there used such a service please?
  11. From your experiences, is there a good time of year to buy a camper/van, or do they hold their price throughout the year?
  12. Thanks Monster. I’m going to start looking at places around the North west when the COVID situation calms down a bit.
  13. Thanks MonsterS. Would you buy private or through a dealer?
  14. Hello, I’m looking to buy a rear conversion, possibly with pop top, but definitely with isofix for around £10,000. Apparantly I’d need proof that the conversion had been done professionally for insurance purposes. Am I being unrealistic?
  15. Hello everyone. I’m thinking of buying a campervan, but as I have a toddler, isofix is essential. I’ve looked at other vans and had eBay brackets which slot between the seat and upright part recommended, but they don’t strike me as being safe. Do Alphards have isofix as standard please?
