Is it real?
I thought someone had done a photoshop hatchet job on a Fiat Multipla.
With added ugliness.

Couple of avant garde posts there Alasdair, I almost get the Fiat Multipla/BMW hybrid its grey and boxy, Hvans are sometimes grey and 99 times out of 100 Boxy, but should the trailer of the film "Fallen Eagle" have been on another thread/forum?

I test drove a Multipla before we bought the Berlingo. Berlingo is nicer to drive despite not having the extra front seat and it has a less vile interior.

I like it when our silly little spotting games get picked up by a wider audience. Yes, my eldest on route for St Lucia, did mention she had spotted an H-Van at Gatwick Airport (Jamie Oliver's logoed up van I believe) and I regularly get reports of "Old Car" spotting.

Well, there are a couple of H Vans (and a few other French vehicles) in the recent file "The Man from U.N.C.L.E.".

It's not silly at all Neil, it's good fun ;)

Both my daughters know of my deep love and affection for all things H Van :-D

Maybe one day they will buy me a real one to go with my models... [-o<

If they do, we shall have to get Team WFA to tweak it. ES9J engine (with air con fitted), HP20 gearbox, Activa suspension fitted and fully configured, decent size fuel tank (to allow for options), and comfortable camper facilities (with a proper mini corden bleu kitchen). Should be useful.

James, a perfect specification for me... My dream Citroen :-D Well done!

Kitchen must have an oven though :wink: Can't live without one and it must be a proper gas one...

Hence why I said "proper mini corden bleu kitchen". You might need to have a trailer attachment to allow for more than one person to benefit. You don't really want to have to take 2 vehicles on a road trip if you and your daughters want to head out yonder.

Might have to use camping gas for the oven, unless you can find locations where you can hook up to the gas network.

Oh and James, it must have accommodation for a bike ;) That's always my second vehicle!

Never heard of a gas hook-up but that would be a brilliant idea... Need LPG on the van though to keep the fridge going... The only gas for a van is Calor Propane...

Propane has the advantage that the van can be used in the winter then.. Also it can run the blown air heating system..

This is turning into a very desirable H van now... Maybe we'll need a LWB one ;)

With a drive duplication system (and duplicate instrument system), so that the trailer can have a synchronised engine and gearbox system (not unlike when there are multiple locomotives hauling a heavy load). The trailer will also have secure storage for at least 3 bicycles (so both daughters can bring theirs, or you can go off mountaineering on the TDF!).

Erm, look what I found on e-bay! Pictures 3 and 4 looks interesting!;

This one might need a little work though!;
