EVERYTHING WE GOT FOR OUR VAN

ENGLISH:

So here we have gathered everything that we have used during the build. A lot of it comes from German Amazon and a lot of it doesn’t. If you wonder we have missed something let us know and we will add a link to it. All these links are for Europe or Sweden. A lot of the stuff we bought we got from Biltema/Byggmax/Bauhaus and Hornbach (Swedish stores).  Under each link you can se a little review and where we bought it. You can also see which store we bought it from. 

SWEDISH:

Här har vi samlat alla länkar till allt i köpte under vårt bygge. Mycket kommer från Amazon och länkarna går till tyska amazon då det är svårt att köpa från England just nu. Vi har även köpt en del på byggmax/bauhaus/hornbach och biltema. 

Om ni saknar något så är det bara att höra av sig så uppdaterar vi. 

Under varje bild kan man se vart varan är inköpt samt en liten recension om vad vi tyckte om varan.
