Yes you can.with the bed down, I position it at the foot of the front seats turned around towards the cabin, so that it is parallel with the pop top opening, so the heat goes straight up if you have that raised. It has three settings, low, medium and high output and you could set it at a very low temp (5 degrees C is the lowest).The lowest setting MIGHT allow it to go under the bed (alongside cabinets) towards the rear, although this might take experimentation. With the rear seat in place it fits perfectly in front of the seats and the heater vent clear. I am so fond of this heater that in lockdown I use it in a study room to keep me warm during the day to save having the full house central heating on. David
That sounds great thank you

Just purchased a Cali coast in grey
And her name is sally
Lovely van. I like Indium grey but have opted for Ascot Grey. Options are privacy glass, reversing camera, comfort sleeping mattress and panoramic bellows window. I too want to have fogs fitted at some point. I prefer the manual roof. Are the wheels 16 inch. They look good imo. My wheels are the same. Will post some pictures shen mine arives should be end Jan. Happy travels.

Yes they are 16inch wheels, I have put all season tyres on,and in the spring/summer I will get a set of 17inch Davenport wheels ,
Yes I will be looking at front fog lights fitted , will probably speak to very Liverpool at some time.
The reversing camera is brill

Hi, Hope you like the photo we have waited months for the van and just love it . Amazing
Purchased the duvalay topper Brilliant. Thinking of purchasing the Kampa Cuboid heater heard brilliant reviews.
Hi
Just excitedly reading this and other old coast threads as we wait for ours... ordered on Monday so quite some wait yet!

How have you been getting on with Sally? I was wondering if you are using the Duvalay topper with the comfort mattress, or just on its own? We can’t decide what mattress to go for, any advice welcome (we can still add extras to the order but thinking of going duvalay alone)

Thanks Mel

Thanks Sally- much appreciated
- and Hopefully it won’t be too much longer until you can get out and about in her again- nice to know you’re all ready to go when lockdown eases.

Hi,
Great news you have ordered the coast,
We love ours, however just having Local trips at moment
Have booked some Caravan Club sites this year,
We have now got the Kampa Cuboid they have been on back order, haven’t tried in van yet but works in house and seems good
We have used the duvalay on its own straight on to the seats seems good, but if you order get the fitted sheet for it,
We have only slept two nights in van ,seems nice and comfortable
Regards Sally

Spoke to LVC last week and should have video walkaround early next week and delivery at end of week. I’ll take some photos and then It will be sanitised and then quarantined in my garage for a couple of days and then I’ll spend a few nights in it and then we’ll see if the comfort mattress does what it says on the “tin”. Can’t park it on drive ( it might get nicked ) can’t park it behind my gates ( it will be targeted by every bird perching on the neighbours pesky TVaerial ) So it will be snug as a bug in the garage. Better kept in there anyway as the cold nights and minimal lockdown use will not do the batteries a lot of good.

How exciting!
I saw somebody had picked theirs up yesterday from Tonbridge which is where ours should be landing any day soon - not sure what the rules are as its about an hours drive from us?!

Nice to hear you getting your Cali soon
We have the steering wheel locking pan on, (the big grey one) witch we can use when we park up,
Bit of a pain putting on and taking off, but better safe than sorry .
Regards Sally

Talk nicely to them and they should deliver it to your door.

Yes. I use one. It is an old disclock. They are a bit of a faff but then they are a bigger faff to take off especially if you don’t have a key.

What locking system do you recommend. We are selling a Danbury VW T2 and realise now this is wider and will be difficult to fit in our garage so will be behind gates on a drive. A lock on the steering wheel .. which one ?

I also have the disklok. I think you need the small size. It takes me ages to get one off and I have a key

Looking to buy
Here she is. As promised.
It's arrived ! Fantastic news ! Are you allowed to just go and collect it? I know people are being stopped by the police in our town and sending them home if their journey isn't essential !
BTW When did you order Coasterman ? I ordered a Coast from Liverpool 28/09 but it's still in build!
