Le Sharo

I think I'm going mad. Just spent a year doing up a Autohomes Bedouin. Every conceivable mod-con now. Reupholstered. Looks great.

Would be well happy (for some reason I prefer classic to new motorhomes - I like the character).

However down in Doset in May I saw a Le Sharo. It was love at first sight.

I'm on the verge of buying one, and starting the whole refurb process again. 91 in good nick, but missing manuals (does anyone have one?).

Am I mad?

I get the hots for those and I think they have VW engine in which inspires confidence.

I would have one if it would fit on the driveway. Porky justs fits.

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my Uncle did. Not screaming and shouting like his passengers.

Most of the ones I've seen have the VR6 engine and auto box. Bet they go as good as they look!

From what I recall of the Le Sharo it had all Renault running gear and was appallingly underpowered.

Help someone out when they're in trouble and they'll remember you when they're in trouble again.

The earlier ones were renault I came very close in about 1994 and decided they were too old and underpowered.
The VWs were a sequel, and certainly looked a much better product. Still dont think I would though, the world has moved on.

The early ones had only 57hp, pulling 3000kg. This one has 103hp, so a big improvement.

The follow up was called the Rialta. I never see these come onto the market unless they are one of the last batch circa. 2003. As I alluded to, I've gotten the classic camper bug. I was persuaded from this line of reckoning, but in my search for a new rig, happened across the advert for the Le Sharo.

Woooweeeeeee....I got the horn.

I would love an older Rialta as VW parts much easier to get, though I am led to believe that Le Sharo part sourcing not as bad as made out, if you know to base much of your search on a Renault 25.
