Cheers mate, I work part time for a company called Trans4mit, he got me the carpet.
It's called veltrim and is mega stretch, awesome stuff and cost me about 100 for 10 metres with glue.


Wiz thanks for the nice comment mate just a shame about the outside lol

Thought it was about time i updated this thread lol

Been busy with building the inside and will be registering as a camper soon, already in contact with dvla and only need the table fitting and water supply sorting.

Anyway this was after me and jj built the unit for down the side



I then ripped out the crap lino which was meant to be hard wearing and ripped with in a week of laying it, thin as card board.
So back to laminate it was.





The step is also now done to match but forgot that pic.
