.......more work from Andy Saunders this time a Pontiac Camper from 1936

Image

and a self-propelled one...the Cramper Van.
It is a well and truly stretched 1960 Butllins bicycle and a well and truly shortened and narrowed Autohome Bambi. It is a fully working camper with light, heating, water hob and loo.

The Land Rover/Range Rover Carawagon factory approved conversions of the 60's and 70's have had an airing on the Classic Car spotting thread,

The conversion from Dormobile is still available today

From a bit of perusing of Classics in Cyprus Dunstable's finest looks like it could form the basis of a nice roomy camper!

Oh gosh :D I remember those so well when they were in everyday service and a very common sight. There were literally thousands all over the Island. each village (even the tiniest) had at least one to run their bus services into the nearest large town...

The 'T' prefix on the number plate designated it as a taxi even though it's a bus... I guess it meant generally a Public Service Vehicle...

Happy memories. Thanks so much for posting it Neil :D

from https://blog.hemmings.com/index.php/201 ... amper-van/

For an American Camper Van, this is really quite nice in my opinion, and has that a quirky sort of look which I like.

Could have gone in I spy Classics but it was a Camper Van, if a very small camper van, spotted on the M62 today in very uncamping type weather.

Saw it from the back first....wonder what that is...and it has "Bedford" emblazoned on its front.

Had to be a Rascal...



Or it could have been a Bambi!
