Once again brilliant pictures of a mod you have done:thumb:
Well done Techno....mine is the same on a A class...first class photos:thumb::thumb:
I can, and have, smiled as I clung to the undercarriage of a light aircraft at 14,000ft, But do I have the courage to drill a hole in my motorhome? NO :Blush:
I was going to write a list of tools required etc.
No.1 on the list would be
Big balls :Rofl1:
How about this easy mod then Mel? quieter more efficient duct for that Baraldi
Very good job.
Just a question.
Why not a sliding window?
As the door can't now be opened if the window is open.
But i think this window is more secure.
Great job great photo's.
I whould s----- myself if I did that to my motorhome.
A sliding window at 500 wide would not fit, that is the smallest manufactured.
Closer inspection will reveal I removed the window stays. It will never be opened.
Next important job will be a Fiamma 77 bike rack, anyone fitted one to the back of their Rapido? the manufacturer fixing points are well off centre with another set of fixing points provided for a ladder. I have no intention of fitting a ladder and dont want my bike rack to look a pilchard so it is going centre
Realy interested in the bike rack fitting.
How do you know where the fixing points are?
Will you post photo's when you fit the rack please.
If you look at an angle across the rear wall in good light you will see 4 horizontal rectangles for the rack and 4 vertical ones to the left side for the ladder. Eddie reckons they're tapping points or expanding nut cavity fixing points to save drilling right through the wall.
Yes I'll post pictures :thumb:
Here's a picture from Phil's Gallery (Rhinoinstalls)
All the fixings whether using the rapido fixing points or not end up in the garage or the bedroom lockers, at least on a 7090 they do.
Looking at the picture the Rapido fixings for the rack are in the centre for the left upper and lower fixings and 600 to the right of those for the right hand fixings at about the same heights as shown
I sold my old van yesterday and got paid in full today, yes on a Sunday :Eek!:
So that bike rack is next up quite soon :thumb:
hesitate to ask .........but as you know my rapido is similar in a lot of ways to yours and I want to put a 240v socket under front lounge seating but have not worked out how they have hidden(route etc.) cables to existing kitchen socket any clues?
They go from the mains distribution board through a slot below it
and between the floors down the nearside of the van (go round the wheel arch) then under the shower and you'll find a single white flex if you look in the boiler external door. It goes up to the kitchen socket from there. You can run a cable from there down and under the water tank and the seat over the gas locker to here.
If you lift the hinged lid up here you can remove the bottom of the interior
I just fitted one here too so wifey can sit on the bed to dry her hair. It's not possible standing up as she keeps clattering the ceiling. I had to pull a new cable for this as Rapido have taped cables together under the floor so I could not divert them.
Rear view top corner of under sink cabinet
neat job andy but why didnt you fit the standard sash as was in my Rapido746:thumb:
Because it clearly would not fit :Laughing:
Strange? your window doesn't look any wider than 48cm wide x 94cm long as is fitted in many different models of Rapido's from 2007- 2010 the dimensions I'm quoting here were the actual size of the Dometic Seiz Excite fitted by Rapido
