Caravan summary

What's good?

The overall build quality, one of the few vans that if you took out all the furniture it would not collapse, it's built on a steel cage, so if you wish to modify it it's possible, tows very well, easy to heat, easy to manoeuvre, rarely suffer from damp, very long life, almost non existent depreciation

What's bad?

without the top up headroom is low, the "shower" was joke, unless you are less than 4 stone and 5 feet tall,

Would you recommend it?

Yes

Style & comfort *****

Do you like the way it looks?

Love it, a true style icon, not changed all that much since the 1950s

Is it comfortable?

Providing you are not too tall, yes very

Ease of towing *****

Is it easy to tow?

behaves very well even in strong winds, and being overtaken by large lorries, doesn't need a large car, 1.6 is more than enough and that's up to 2600m in Africa

Reliability & water ingress ****

Anything to look out for?

Nothing special,

Practicality *****

Does it meet your holiday needs?

Very practical if you like touring, people like to come and look at it so you make friends

Any modifications?

Turned the rear dinette into a fixed double bed, removed the shower/toilet and built a large wardrobe

Buying experience ****

used

Where did you buy it?

Dutch company [ Bruggink ] were very good
