Built in Holland and re-registered in the UK in 2001 this van is now DVLA registered historic vehicle which means no road tax or MOT. Although we do have her MOT’d with the last one February 2024.
50,000 miles or 80,000 km on the clock she comes with full service history and invoices from our restoration activities.

Because she came from Holland she did not suffer from salt treated winter roads and so her floor pan and bodywork was in good condition. However in 2015 we had the vehicle completely stripped back to metal, all corrosion hotspots dealt with and completely resprayed inside and out using the original taiga green colour.
We also had electric steering system installed and later the 100w Victron solar panel fitted which drives the fridge, lighting and USB ports, making camping so much easier.

The interior restoration focused on a hand built bespoke oak kitchen to provide lots of storage featuring a unique sliding storage drawer.
New equipment includes:
Stainless sink and two burner unit
Waeco CR50 electric fridge
Thetford cassette toilet in matching oak buddy seat which converts into a two seater bench
CTEK M200 battery charger
Propex gas heating system
Matching oak table which stores away in the ceiling
Full 5 foot wide rock and roll bed with new cushions and matching upholstery
Skyol fabric concertina blinds made to measure for all side windows
Roller style blind for rear window
Pop up canvas re-fabricated turret roof with new ventilation mushrooms

Engine:
It is a twin port, 2 litre air cooled engine which runs very smoothly after being remapped. The electronic ignition fitted in 2022 has made a world of difference. She starts easily everytime and has never let us down.

Adrian Flux insurance valued her at £25,000 in 2015 through their agreed valuation process. She costs approximately £250 a year to insure.

She is a really attractive vehicle and attracts a lot of admirers wherever we take her. We have owned her for over 10 years and very sad to let her go but as we approach our 70’s we feel it is time for us to pass her onto new owners to enjoy.
