Many CFs will be 'resting', mostly waiting for better weather to be worth using (e.g. camper vans, ice cream vans). A number will be in bits being restored or modified, or on their way to eBay as an 'abandoned project'.

Mine has been all over the place this year already. This weekend we were in Malvern, and the Wye valley (camping near Symonds Yat Rock). Was down in Cornwall two weekends before and out in the snow in January. I think we have clocked up the best part of 800 miles since the new year. Got a Propex heater fitted to keep the chill off when you get out of bed in the morning - still get ice on the inside of the glass though!

Hi Phil, with regards to still getting ice on inside the window that's all down to condensation I even get that in my Transit Autosleeper coach built but i used a silver screen when at Rossendale and it was ok I had no condensation on my windscreen until I started to make breakfast ( full English) then the condensation appereared if I'd opened the roof Vent it would have been ok.

Hi Dave. I also use a cheap silver screen in the front but still get buildup of condensate. Not helped I think as I do have a few leaks around the windows that need sorting.

Incidentally, it's your old Propex unit I'm running! Takes the chill off nicely, I just need to sort out all the drafts now!

Took cover off van this morning after it's winter hibernation.
After placing batteries on charge overnight, first turn of key after a few seconds for petrol filling carb up she kicked into life 😀
Things looking good so far,but noticed wiper blades have fallen to bits where they touch the screen and will need replaced
We can't wait to get it out after all my medical issues last year put a hault to any trips.
Hope the weather is going to be great this year for all us Bedford owners 👍

Funnily enough both of my wiper blades disintegrated on a very rainy journey back from Bideford the other week. Made for some "interesting" driving!
