    Just think what you've got to look forward to!!! Sticking throttle linkages, lights that are as effective as candles in a high wind, leaking extending roof, rust and rust. Just Kampers needs to be in your Bookmarks/favourites. )

    Nice. I'd love a camper.

    How much did that set you back if you don't mind me asking? Good ones go for silly money nowadays.

    Me and my brother were going to start a project a few years ago. But a van like a LWB transit and convert it into a campervan. The project never took off but I'm still wishing it had

    I've already spoken to them to look at replacing a couple of things :-) I can't wait to get my hands on it :-)

    The rust isn't too bad at this point, just a bit under the wheel arches but nothing serious. It had a full bare metal respray about 2 years ago at which point pretty much all the rusty panels were pulled out and replaced.

    We've paid £7500 for it, but we looked at one last week which was a proper mess and that went on ebay for £6100 so we think we've got a good deal :-)
