I would keep my eyes open for another scrapper as the Renault parts are a mixture of old Renault cars and vans.

I have seen both the Le Sharo and Phasar sell for around £5k needing work. But might be a good option for spares and a learning curve.
Dudley's might even have some old parts to clear.

Check out the ARVE mag.

Hi,
A friend had one of these powered by the renault petrol engine driving an auto gearbox. While it was not a fast van it always got to its destination and kept up ok on motorways, he only changed it when the customs man decided he'd got to much tobacco and confiscated the van..be warned. As I recall the only complaint was the lack of storage but as you've already bought it- best of luck, I always liked it and it gets you inside at the Americana
Regards,
Chris

I've paid £6,000 with (I hope) no major work needed.

I'll give Dudley's a call.

And Chris this Americana sounds interesting. Tell me more!

Hi,
The Americana is a long weekend event run every year at Newark show ground. It consists of 2 outdoor stages plus 3 indoor with a mixture of rock and country and western music. There are displays of classic american and british cars and motorbikes, lots of stalls and sellers. The theme as you may have guessed is American lifestyle with cars and bikes cruising around. American campers are often invited to camp inside the showground and the rest of us are located in the temporary campsite adjacent. This year we arrived on Thursday and left the following monday, fees were £80 each plus £25 per camping unit. The best idea is to look on the Americana website to get an idea of the type of bands etc. for us it's the highlight of the year,
Regards,
Chris.

Le Sharo parts from US

I have a 1985 Le Sharo - and have got parts from John in US. www.winnebagoparts.com and email is [email protected].

He's incredibly helpful by email (I sent him photos of the part of the van I had a problem with so he could see what I needed) and also by phone - and postage isn't too dear if you're not in a hurry (and obviously what you're looking for isn't very heavy!).
