It came to us less any paperwork, and no registration plates. However a few years later we were contacted by Brian a previous owner who recognised the camper from the above picture as it was Brian who had brush painted it in it's new colour scheme of dark blue, and yelllow diuring his ownership in the early 1980's. Brian went on to send us some pictures of the van on family holidays, and most importantly some old MOTs , and other contempory paperwork which will help with reclaiming the campers identity.

A restoration was started in March 2018 with a goal for completion being August, and a planned expedition to Hadrians wall as its first trip out.

Initial sanding of the body reveals original colour scheme of light blue all over, with a mid blue acent on the sides outlined with aluminium stip, with a plastic insert.Initial sanding of the body reveals original colour scheme of light blue all over, with a mid blue acent on the sides outlined with aluminium stip, with a plastic insert.
