It's camper van time!

Fresh off the boat this morning after a 'blind' buy on eBay, this is the new (F-reg) camper van. It's a Ford Transit, and thus has a fine rock'n'roll heritage. I finally got round to telling Susan about it this morning...she hasn't seen it yet. What can I say? It's got a satellite TV and GPS. And a toilet. What more could you ask for? Well, it sleeps four but only seats two, which is a bit confusing.

hi tom
the auld transit looks ok , and as it's no a coachbuilt body ideal fur tourin on oor narrow scottish roads , you would probably get it cheaper than an equivilent V W as you're peyin for the name and notion that it's got tae be good if it's german, awra best .

Seats 2 and 'sleeps' 4...hmmm..swinging, dogging, picking up strangers...what do the young people call it these days?

The auld transit is indeed okay. Since I seafayred to Aberdeen to acquire it in August two thousand and eight, it has clocked up quite a few more miles. Bags o room. Simple owld thing. Not rusty. Has been doon the West Coast in August and September 2008, including Loopallu. Now that it is has been comprehensively and professionally rewired it will, if I'm spared, be travelling around the Highlands for many more years.
