The SBMCC say that many self-builds are on-going projects because their creators are constantly making changes and upgrades. That was true of the old A-Team van:
Firstly, it’s all very well having a nice, dry van to go back to, but that’s no use if it has all your kit locked-up inside so there’s no space for you to get in and change. Secondly, even when insulated s small van seems colder to sleep in on a cold night than a tent does. Despite having all the facilities available in the van, you’ll find yourself prefering to cook outside when you camp – it is all about camping after all. Furthermore, the A-Team van was a TV myth and just having red stripes on the side of a black van does not mean that it can drive anywhere.
