The penny has just dropped as they say so many questions has PVC got into the blood then,do you still have the caravan,if so are you keeping both,and last but not least have you got your back sorted.

Just tried the leccy hookup and that works.
Got a heater going in there now drying it out.
Soooooooo chuffed with it!
Been looking everywhere for a cheapie to do up, so it pays to be obsessively looking!

Aww thanks Helen !
I've been so busy this last year with my new job I haven't had proper chance to look for another. Must be obsessed by the PVC smell!
This one was on eBay for about 5 mins before I hit the buy it now. Wasn't completely sure that it was a dandy, but I figured for that price I could take the chance.
I've been and got some ikea material so watch this space. I'll do a before n after. When I work out how to loads pics!!!
Thanks all soo much for your lovely re-welcomes flower

Update What a Face
Spent the morning scrubbing the inside. Which, as my daughter would say was "minging"!!
Loads of mould, cobwebs and damp bits. All the mould came off with bathroom cleaner and cif.
The bottom of the door, the end panels next to the floor and most of the interior ply needs replacing as most of it
Has delaminated and rotten. Just happen to have some 18mm marine ply in the shed. Convenient that!
I want to get it somewhere near useable (tho nowhere near finished ) by next weekend as its my birthday on Saturday
And would like to give it an outing!
Someone had also taken out the door window and put hinges on it at the top so it opens outwards.....
Except that it doesn't shut properly and rain pours in. Hence the wet soggy bits! Evil or Very Mad
No more time today. In fact no more time til thurs pm.
Work keeps getting in the way of my life!!!! affraid

Aww thanks. Now calling him Weakly, as that's what the floor looked like when i peeled back the carpet! So far I've replaced the bottom half of the door, and am in the process of replacing half the floor which has crumbled away in a sludgy mess.
