The Refit

Take one 19 year old Pilote R470 and strip out everything but the loo and wardrobe. Now start again! The job took much of three months to do but at least we have what we wanted…
Looking forward. We replaced the front seats with swivel arm chairs (Toyota HiAce) and made the steering wheel removable so the drivers seat can turn all the way. The salon seats are also HiAce donations. All re-upholstered.

In fact the only thing left inside was the wardrobe and the lavatory!
