Most of the newer bus chassis RV stateside do have similar taps but as you say secured to Corian or much heavier sinks and worktops. We hardly used the flex extended hose in ours.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

In this video our motorhome furniture rebuild continues with the building of overhead cupboards and cabinets in the living room area. Work also continues with the making of the sink unit and sorting problems with the waterworks

Did I hear you say a couple of the windows still had to be sealed? Hope there haven't been any leaks into the insulation!

There are two windows still to be re-sealed. But, those windows have not yet been removed and as such still have the original 'factory' sealing. Leaking or not, all windows were always planned to be removed, with frames and apertures cleaned and re-sealed as a precaution - we didn't want all the hard work going to waste.

In today's video we show you how well the build of the cupboards in the American RV rebuild project is coming along. But, it is not all plain sailing as we discover a double problem that we need to resolve very quickly…

I seem to remember seeing a plaster on quite a few fingers now John. Or is it the hand of your helper?

Gosh, I hope I didn't jinx you with my comments about unsealed windows John! I presume you checked the insulation below the window for damp?

Re sealing it shut..... not sure that's a great idea. I know you point out there's another window at 90° to it but my experience of temperatures on the continent (and even, on occasion, in UK!) is that you need as many open windows as possible and preferably on opposite walls as well as fully open rooflights. (I found my automatic Maxxair fan a huge boon in hot weather). Your MH is basically a huge tin box that will absorb all the heat.

In today's video we build the kitchen, bedroom and living room overhead cupboard doors, which are then installed. The cupboard doors are made from MDF wood. This is then sealed with a PVA sealant, preventing moisture from getting to the MDF until we paint it. The doors are hung using flush cranked hinges. The locker or cupboard doors are then held closed using antique coloured double roller catches. The designed shape of each door follows the shape of each of the motorhome window frames.

We wish all our viewers a Merry Christmas, and we hope that you have a fantastic New year 2022.

I haven’t heard you talk about stays for the cupboards yet.

Measure twice cut once a well known motto to me, selecting the wood ( I did spot a knot in the frame Hans ( my late husband) and I would spend a lot of time selecting wood for his projects in the house, caravan and the motorhome he never ordered wood always went to Ridgeons in Cambridge to select his own. Although he was a precision engineer he loved working with wood, this house is full of it.
Watching you two working is bringing back so many memories.
