Been advertising for a while.

Those bumpers, grills and skirts look, erm, different.

In the hijet, with that big cooking box in the back your not going to sleep 2 in there.

But for example, photo number 3, in the door opening, the paintwork is crude.

Photo number 6, cushion on the right has just been folded over and stapled not had proper corners stitched in. Then putting a plug socket directly under the sink.... hmmmm good idea! What's that white wire bodged into the light cluster? You could have fed it back up the pillar really easily and then it wont risk the wear damage under the boot rubber.

Photo 5 - black back window? what happened to the glass, never seen a hijet tailgate without the window cut out. Is it just painted glass?

I think for a true opinion you want to have a close look at the respray work, and poke the bits full of body filler to see if they crack.

Critic mode off - yeah they look ok.

Hijet campers could be done really nice, stylish and functional. But you need to think about it carefully as there is very little space.

The orange fabric interior looks ok, colours are brill, but the wrinkles in the fabric says amateur - buy decent thick fabric and some spray adhesive and a sewing machine to form the corners for a tight finish.

The sink tap could be in "the wall of the van" and the basin could fold up with flexi hoses and be legless with a little thought. That way the bed could keep its full van width when opened out. Sockets under the bench seat. Back of seat acts as the add in bed floor. Water tank under bed piped through the floor to the other side. Cooker storage under the bed/seat in a slide out sealed draw and separate storage separation for clothes and food all under bed/seat. Mini 12v LCD TV mounted on a tilt swivel above sink, dvd head unit under the seat/bed box wall, speakers in the bed seat box walls. LED strip lighting in the metal U shapes that hole the roof lining up. All 12v/mini invertor powered of separate battery with a rally car style cut off switch to allow charging while running. All wiring/light switch/extra fuse box stashed in the bed/box.

I haven't even really thought about hijet campers. But I have built narrow boat interiors for brand new boats which have to be flawless in the price range they are in, so I'm not just a clueless idiot. Plus fitted about 100 kitchens, plus bathrooms and bedroom suites in houses.
