The reg no of the one for sale at Mathewsons is G656 OAL

There was also a Romahome listed below the one in your link for a Romahome HYLO which had the reg G658 OAL

Contemporaries but different body styles from the Romahome factory :-D

'tis indeed a Reliant Fox, and a very quick answer so I guess you are familiar with them Gibbo. The inset pic was one that sold at Brightwells in 2015 for £1,800.

Too much of a coincidence? Just struck by the user name of the poster of that photo, vulgalour.
There was a user of that name on here with very interesting tales of restoring a Renault 6 and then a Citroen BX.

Yes He signed off with this rather nice photo back in May this year....including a nice two-tone wedge in the background

Just to let you know this is the last FCF update on this one. It passed the MoT no bother and I've been enjoying using it every day since. FCF feels like it's more focused on newer cars these days and the Xantia has replaced the BX as the old Citroen of interest these days. That's fine, things move on. I've been using the BX forum and other old car fora which are a better source of information and help so I'll keep on happily keeping on with the BX elsewhere. Just thought it polite to draw a line under the thread here for those that have been watching and reading this one.

I thought a Mini was a ridiculous basis for a motorhome - but a Reliant Fox?!

This one is surely a contender for the awful section?
