What do we need to look out for?

Mum has a sewing machine so I can redo covers and curtains etc?

We have an10 month old and 3 year old!

Our first van was about that off eBay. It was an Abi Marauder about 1990. Most important thing to check is that the van isn't damp. Everything else is fixable but damp is a disaster.

Just check for damp-it's a sod!Take a damp meter when you view-check around windows,rooflights etc.Usually,if a 'van is damp,you can smell it.
