A whole lot of paint

In october and november, we worked on the camper, I painted the camper, first with some pastel colours, but I didn’t like the colours, so I painted the cupboards all white, and the kitchen blue.

Roy made a new sink in the bathroom and tried to fix a leakage in the bathroom, which is still there, after all the work, we can’t figure out where the water comes from, but it’s still there. He made the new sink from the old compression vessel from our home which we renewed just a few weeks before. After searching on the internet for a small sink, I saw the vessel and thought, this is it! So Roy turned it into a sink. I just realised that, I haven’t made a photo of the finished bathroom. I wil add this later on. But the simple bathroom has something luxurious now, with the wooden floor and wooden sink!

On the picture below you can see the old bathroomwall, with a totally rotten back, behind the aluminium. Roy has put in concreteplex and made a new wooden floor, made from old French terrace chairs, which I found 10 years ago in a garden in an empty house in Rotterdam city centre.


Everything nice and neat in white,blue and yellow. Roy made a pretty little bookshelf and I painted the curtain gliders.


Lord Liberty is here!


On october 26 2019 we bought Lord Liberty! After looking at hundreds of adds on Marktplaats, the Dutch sort of Ebay, we first decided to wait with buying a camper until spring. We want to leave in spring, so why search now. But it’s like falling in love. The moment you stop searching, someone comes along. One evening, four weeks ago, Roy showed me an email he wanted to send to the previous owner of the camper. Roy showed me the photo’s of the camper and all the technical details. This is the one! So I agreed. The camper was for sale in Rockanje, the village where Roy grew up. So Roy mailed to the guy with that little detail. We were the first ones who reacted to the add. It was just a few hours online! When it comes to campers you have to be really quick, no hesitation, otherwise some dealer will buy the camper before you do…

So the mail was send and two days later we had an appointment after work! When we arrived, we discovered the previous owner knew Roy and his brother from primary school! They were almost the same age and went to the same school! How things come together.

We looked and talked for an hour, made a little tour and the camper looked and sounded good. We could come back the next day for taking a drive in daylight. So we did. The thing is we had to decide quick, there were a lot of other interested people. The add had a high ranking. We are quite impulsive and we know it’s strange to buy the first camper you take a look at. But we simply couldn’t find a reason not to buy Lord Liberty. So we did!

As you can see the camper is in the original state, brown wood. We want to redecorate it, for a more fresh and creative interior, it has to become our home, not just a holiday home on wheels.

So last week I painted a part of the interior white, with some colours here and there.

But I ‘m not happy with the coloursthe cupboards, I think I will change it. But at least it light and bright! I painted the back seating area dark blue, the same colour we have in our house. Always a winner! It’s such a cosy corner now!

I will take one more week to paint some more in the interior, then the camper goes back to the storage.

The past two days we tested the camper, we slept one night in Belgium. But we need a cliffhanger…so I will tell you next time everything about our first night out with Lord Liberty!

On our way to Brussels…next time..see you!
