Touring Caravan Kit
So at the start of 2009 I've been thinking about last year and the touring Caravan we bought in March 2008. We have been thinking about where we might go in 2009 and what extra kit we might need. When I first got 'the van' I was totally unprepared for the onslaught of kit required and also surprised at what kit does not come standard when shelling out for a van. For example you wouldn't dream of buying a car without a battery would you? Anyway, I thought I'd list the kit that I got just in case someone with an urge to start up touring this year needs a few pointers for the things they 'might' need to budget for after paying an arm and a leg for the actual van. I say 'might' as, to be fair this is all subjective and totally down to your own requirements, budgets and gadget lovingness. Abbey Freestyle 520SE - Standard kit ...

New VW Van Engine 1
The engine is called the Tiico conversion which replaced the 2.1 Waterboxer with an in-line, fuel injected Golf engine. Essentially the same set up used for South African VW Vanagons throughout the 1990's. Conversion completed by Jon at Foreign Auto Supply in Harpswell, Maine - he has completed more than 100 conversions and the final product looks like a it was done at the factory. In addition, a South African front light assemply was added to the replace the 1987 square headlighs with round Hella lights. We installed fog lights above the front bumper and the body was was re-painted with the original color. Most other items are original equipment (including the Dometic removable refrigerator) because we have had the van (Weekender Addition) since it was new. Recently, we added a Shady Boy awning kit above the sliding door. Now, the van is now like new - but its overall performance is much better than the day we bought it because of the Tiico engine. We are waiting for the arrival of a 5 speed transmission with overdrive so that we keep the revs down when cruising at highway speeds.
