Carolyne and Rogers LWB Coaster
Superb Bathroom and a Very Social Unit
we are truly honest most of us will admit that we got our first motorhome purchase
totally wrong. Usually with Coasters we all tend to neglect the social aspect
of motorhoming. Its just no fun having a conversion that will only seat two people.
Having guests sitting on your bed is definitely not good etiquette. For starters
lets say we were totally impressed with this Tasmanian conversion done by Collyn
Hills of CP Motorhomes. Collyn readily admits that all of the colour scheme
was Carolyns work and he told us he did get a bit worried initially. However the
motorhome turned out a little beauty and he now "thinks outside the square"!
Make no mistake - this is one top quality conversion and will satisfy the most

lines of the white ceiling. Carolyn tried to keep a "monochrome" feel
to this motorhome and she succeeded brilliantly.
The proud owners are pictured above. A standard security
style door was fitted into a frame. The door is actually much wider than those
found on most commercial motorhomes.
photos above show the very clean outside lines. Bikes on the back does create
a small boot access problem. White melamine coated 16 mm MDF was used throughout.
Lots of good ideas here as well. Note the bulkhead in the photo below left. This
allows shorter cupboard modules and makes installation a breeze. Many DIY builders
fail to realise that it is very difficult to feed full length overhead cupboards
through the boot opening! Another clever idea is the chamfers on the edges of
all cupboard doors. This gave a very pleasing effect and not tooooooo difficult
to do. The fridge was mounted up front behind the driver. The front seats don't
