When I first started working in 2002, I had a dream to buy a big van in the future, put it in the kitchen and bedroom, and travel. At that time, my colleagues laughed at me and thought I was a fantasy! ! But this ideal has never changed!
In 2017, I took my mother to travel to Shandong by car. After playing for half a month, my mother was so tired that she lay down at home for half a month. It was because of this incident that I implemented the caravan plan in advance. In February 2018, I bought the Datong V80 long-axis high-roof, started the renovation in April, and completed it in February 2019.
After a 26-day trip to Hainan in a self-driving RV, I came back and made improvements to address the deficiencies. It was officially completed in April 2019 and reached its ideal state.
Let’s start the reissue of the entire modification operation. Hope you prawn guidance. .
RV life is exactly what I want to pursue, work hard for my dream, come on! As a working class, it is not easy for me to buy a finished RV. I can spend all my money here, and my children will have various supplementary classes in the middle of next year… Hey, it is difficult for a working class to buy a RV.
If you buy a finished product, then do it yourself. Brother Tanzi helped to pre-order a V80 axle top with a caravan certificate for bare cars.
Let’s talk about choosing a car. I really like Jiangling Coster and Rosa, because the space is comfortable and we are all relatively big. However, seeing feedback from riders that this model is too noisy, this noise is really unacceptable.
Pick up the car and start heading back from Xinxiang. My wife and I took turns driving, passed by the service area and started a party in the car, instant noodles.
Entering Inner Mongolia, it was immediately white, and the temperature dropped suddenly! ! It was still warm in the car though. I finally got home safely at 6:00 pm.
On the second day when I got home, I looked down at my Dabai from upstairs.
The car hasn’t arrived yet, but the accessories have arrived, so let’s sew a handle first. I never do housework, and it took more than 40 minutes to sew. It seems that the needlework is not bad.
When passing through Beijing, I bought a large roll of glass film at the Auto Parts City, which cost me 600 yuan. After I came back, I borrowed a set of film sticking tools from the car wash shop at the gate of the community, and went home to start working.
After more than three hours of hard work, I finally put the film on, and got the approval of the little master at the car wash, which is so beautiful in my heart.
Cruise control, driver’s handle, weather shield and navigation all arrive.
Don’t say anything, install the navigation first, this thing is very easy, and it can be done in minutes.
It is not difficult to open the handle.
When the electric pedal arrived, it was frustrating that there was no wiring diagram. Finally, the pedal was disassembled and the wiring was traced from the beginning to understand how to install it. Wasted most of my day, depressed. Here I would like to thank Xiaozhang from Henan for his support.
On April 15th, I went to Beijing to see the photos taken at the car show.
Come back and continue to work, the work has officially started, and the car will be dismantled first. During this process, someone told me not to throw away the disassembled items. If it fails to be changed, you can put them back together and sell the car. It seems no one thought I could change it to ah. For this reason, I decisively threw away all the dismantled things, and did not leave a way out for myself. If you fail, you will be benevolent.
I went to 4S to find a lift to support the car, but found that I didn’t know how to hang the water tank. When I went to Beijing for the first time, I only saw a happy one, so I had to go, but I still have to go to Beijing this week.
The Fangshan Auto Show this time is of such a large scale, and there are many car enthusiasts camping in it. When others look at cars, I basically have to climb under each car to see the structure and how to fix it. This time I have a bottom line in my heart. I set off from Chifeng early in the morning, hurried around for a day, and rushed back overnight. Fortunately, Chifeng is only more than 400 kilometers away from Beijing.
After I came back, I started to modify the seat first, and dismantled it in various ways. The first time I modified it, I dismantled the seat. Later, I realized that there was no need to dismantle it like this.
Start to set the water tank, I don’t want to make a standard cuboid water tank for the sake of capacity. Use 4 pieces of 5cm benzene boards to glue together, and cut according to the beam at the bottom of the car, so that the mold of the water tank is made, and the rest is to open the mold to make the water tank.
Use this spare time to install the driver’s seat with a turntable. Because of the first experience, this seat is much better than that of the co-driver.
I came back with a car of accessories, water tanks, awnings, and 210A generators, all of which have arrived.
