This is how Veronica started out and old smelly horse box, with mouldy poo and old hay inside.  I lovingly restored her to how she looks today.

The first job I did was strip all the back out and remove the ramp.

I then stripped the floor and insulated the floor and walls and added all the wiring.  Veronica charges the battery as she runs and is also backed up by solar power.

I then fitted the windows I sourced these off a caravan that was going for scrap, they are vintage ones.

Then it was adding the toilet, kitchen, oven etc, my mum did the furnishings and made the curtains.

Veronica was in supriseingly good condition for her age on the outside, her paintwork was very tatty, but there was no rot and very little rust.  I sanded her down, applied primer and borrowed a friends garage to spray her in, she was too big for the spray booth!

And this is the finished product below, my mum and sister with Veronica at Scarborough.
