Citreon Relay L3 H2 Enterprise 2.1 HDI 2016 – 133 K miles

UPDATE: PRICE DROP!!!!!! (dropping price for quick sale) Offers considered!!!!!!!

For the second time this year we are selling our home, this time our home on wheels. We have spent this last summer living in this van full time in Cornwall, before taking it with us to Portugal where we plan to stay. Van life has been amazing, I’d recommend it to anyone, but unfortunately we aren’t able to import the van to Portugal. This is why we are rather reluctantly selling our van, but we’re sure it’ll be enjoyed as much as we have.
As the pictures demonstrate this is a very unique van and cosy van. Having lived in it full time we know that everything works as it should, we have cooked 3 meals a day in it and had daily hot showers with no problems at all.
Being only five years old the engine is super reliable, the bulk of the miles having been on motorways. It also has all the mod cons you’d expect from a modern vehicle, with air con, a Bluetooth head unit and cruise control which was great for cruising the toll roads in Europe.

Please see the following full conversion specs;

Mechanics and outside:

– 2.1 litre HDI engine.
– Full service history and MOT until 25/04/2022.
– upgraded rear axle double leaf suspension and shock absorbers, the single best thing I had done to this vehicle. It weighs roughly between 3.2 and 3.3 tonnes. Usually these vans ride low even with moderate weight, with the upgrade you’d think the van was empty, it looks and feels that way to drive.
– bespoke Rhino roof rack. I had this specially modified to allow space for the solar panel at the front and the sky light at the back. On the trip to Portugal I had the rack fully loaded with 5 surfboards and 3 roof boxes. Definitely adds to the unique look of the van.
– Rhino rear door step ladder.
– skylight above bedroom.
– 300w solar panel (see electric section below for specs etc).
– 3 by 2 metre Vango airbeam awning (very easy to set up in less than 5 minutes).
– parking levelling ramps by ‘Thule’.

Inside:

– Kitchen extractor fan.
– full size kitchen sink.
– thetford twin hob burner.
– thetford gas oven (big enough to cook a roast chicken).
– gas bbq connection from onboard lpg gas supply.
– 100 litre 12v fridge.
– full size shower (please note hot water only with 230v hook up).
– double bed with memory foam mattress (I am 5’11 and can sleep width ways comfortably). Bedroom has a lovely nesting feel to it, and have had some of the best sleeps of my life in it. Cant beat sleeping with the back door swung open on a starry night.
– cosy bench seat.
– book shelf.
– handy shelves and little storage solutions throughout.
– masses of storage options in the kitchen and throughout the van. We stored a complete kitchens worth of appliances and kitchen ware as well as all our clothes, books and all our other worldly belongings.
– also sizeable storage area under the bed with segregated shelving.

Electrics and Gas:

– Gaslow refillable LPG system professionally installed by Falmouth marine gas solutions, fully tested and certified.
– The electrical system does not have a safety certificate but I have worked in the electrical industry for 10 years and have testing and checked everything myself.
– 16 amp mains electrical hook up with intelligent ‘Victron Energy blue smart charger’, this allows you to bluetooth to your phone so you can see current health and charge of the batteries.
– 2 x 230V double sockets in the living area and kitchen (when hooked up to mains supply.
– 12 v system and fuse board which powers the lights, extractor fan and 12v charging points, of which there are two in the bedroom and one in the living area.
– spot lights in living area and LED strip lights for mood effect in the kitchen.
– 300 W solar panel, with ‘Epever MPPT Solar charge Controller’.
– split charge relay from the engine.
– 2 x 125 amp hour batteries we have found this to be easily enough to power the van even without hook up. We run fridge as well as 12 v freezer 24 hours per day all summer long. The ferry crossing meant the panels were in darkness for 27 hours and the fridge and freezer still had power when we returned to the van.
– 230V mains water heater, only down side is this means hot water only with hook up.
– 12V Shurflo water pump
– 125 litre fresh water tank.
– diesel heater currently out of action due to faulty sensor, we haven’t bothered to fix as haven’t needed heating for most of the time we’ve used it (using the gas hobs would heat the van up nicely and electric heating with hook up will have it like a sauna).
– electric blow heater (note this is only of use when on mains hook up.
– 15 metres of 16 amp extension lead.
– reverse polarity leads for use in Europe, I found 50 percent of the campsites I used in Spain to have a reversed polarity (unless your an electrician you may not understand but happy to explain, basically a safety measure).

Conversion Description

The initial conversion was done by the previous owner, if you look up Cedric the Citreon on Instagram you can see full pics and account of the original build . We then had a professional company build the kitchen and the storage section under the bed. The Gas was installed and certified by Falmouth Marine gas solutions. I added the 230V hook up and the mains battery charger, consumer unit and 230V circuits. Although the electrics have not been certified, I have worked in the electrical industry for Western Power Distribution and have tested the whole system myself. I also had the suspension upgraded by my mechanic in Cornwall, he fitted double leaf springs and upgraded shocks.
