Hi everyone,
I am a proud owner driver of a 2008 IC CE300 shipped in to the UK from New York.
We have converted it into a 5 berth RV. Rustic timber style conversion with compost toilet, gas hot water and diesel night heater.

Welcome!
Could you please explain what a 'berth' is? I'm American and only understand English.

from the context, sounds like 5 beds...let's see if the OP will confirm that.

Ha ha it sleeps 5. It’s obviously a quirky British thing.
King size master bed, pullout double in the lounge area and a single bunk bed if required ��

Thanks,
Itís a Thule omnistor awning 6m long and expand 3m, I had some custom brackets made up to suit the curved roof and then covered the void with white pvc domestic gutter and Facia board.

I'd have to make a moving diorama or something for that upper rear window. That's awesome and I've never seen one before

The term 'berth' isn't a 'quirky British thing. The word means a sleeping place, as in 'an upper berth' or a bed. It also can refer to a place you park a boat or ship.
