you'll need to reposition the springs so that they're over the axle. There's literally thousands of campervans out there like this and advice should be readily available. Mine was already converted in this manner when I purchased it so I can't help you any further I'm afraid.

Its not to look the part is lets have lots of spare tyres you can always unhook and leave mum with the van and get tyres fixed buts its hard to pull the caravan by hand while looking for some one to fix the cars

Not sure I agree on that.... Its much better to have all matching wheel and rim sizes if possible, as for 6 on the road and 2 spare is a much more practicle and safe way to run, than running out of spares and having to leave the missus on the side of the road trying to protect the camper and herself........ I run all same size rubber and mags, and besides the comments I get on the look, its good to know am travelling the best type of way!
