MYRTLE INFO


Body Spec

Myrtle is an Auto-Sleeper Executive on a Peugeot Boxer Wheelbase 3200 with a gross weight capacity of 3500kg. The engine is a 2800cc diesel and she was first registered in 2003.

Outside

Over the nearside is a roll out awning with an outside light under. The gas locker is also on this side with one 6k Gaslow refillable bottle (LPG) and 1 red Calor bottle. I had the Gaslow bottle installed for travelling abroad as it is almost impossible to get the UK Calor bottles in Europe.

On the offside is a wet locker where I keep levellers, red triangles, toilet chemicals etc etc. I also have a duel external TV aerial socket fitted. On the roof is a small Solar panel which does a great job when wild camping. Underneath is a fresh water tank (70ltr) and a waste water tank (65ltr) both with taps for draining in winter. The fresh water tank has a froststat fitted. We also carry 2 fresh water containers inside the m/h when on a long trip or wild camping. We can be self sufficient for three days and we both have a hot shower every morning.

On the back is a Fiamma UltraBox where I keep folding chairs, silver screen, power cables, hose pipe, external table etc.

Inside

Above the back door is the control panel where I can check on the battery levels, the water tank level, the waste water level and the solar panel output. It also houses the main switches and some of the fuzes. On the rear door you can see our waste bin, not many motorhomes come with a waste bin these days, especialy one as big as ours. The rear kitchen has a sink and draining board with hot and cold water. The cooker has 3 gas rings and 1 electric plate for when on hookup. The grill and oven are below with a storage cupboard at the bottom where I keep my Cadac Grill. The shower / toilet is also at the rear, and hot water (gas & electric) is supplied by the water boiler which is under one of the seats.
There is a three way fridge that works on gas, 12v or mains electric, and above is a drinks cabinet with safe storage for 4 bottles and 4 glasses. Opposite is the Wardrobe over a Gas/Electric fire that also blows warm air into the shower / toilet.

The seating area in the centre of the Motorhome can be transformed into a large double bed or two single beds and there is plenty of storage both above and below. There is a large storage locker above the cab area where we keep the bedding etc.

We had an sophisticated alarm fitted when we bought her, this allows us to set the alarm when we are inside sleeping. If only I could remember to turn it off before I open the back door in the morning. Its ok if you are wild camping. as you are usually on your own.

Cooking

Cooking in the Motorhome can be a challenge, we have three gas rings and one electric plate, a grill area and a gas oven. If the weather is good you can cook and eat outside, you can also do the washing up outside which is very nice. We have a fold away table that is very lightweight which is big enough to sit 4 people
We bought a "Cadac" gas stove for outside cooking, it had a detachable griddle top that is good for steaks and when turned over a flat side for things like bacon and eggs etc. We often use a large saucepan with a lid, and do the all in one method and cook the whole meal in it.
