Thanks everyone for the lovely comments on our static caravan plans, I can hardly wait to go and have a look. A lot depends on the internal condition and style of the caravan, but I already have a colour scheme and general 'look' in mind, having spent some time looking at ideas, Pinterest boards and makeover pictures from people who've done up their vans. It's all really exciting, I'm so looking forward to actually having our own caravan and doing it up, on a budget. Once we get going, I'll take lots of pictures and document our progress.
Joy, you asked if we could 'unofficially' let our van (once we get one!) to friends. No, I don't think that's an option.....I asked for and was given a printed copy of the site Ts&Cs, in which it states that no subletting is allowed, the site owner also told us verbally, so I reckon it's a no. I will ask him though if friends are allowed to stay in our absence, as I know a couple of our friends would be very interested - in fact, they've already asked if they can come and stay!
On the subject of pictures.....I want to do some artwork for the van (I have some canvases I bought quite cheaply) so have been doing some drawing this morning. Here's one:-
