They do have such appeal though and Im never sure why.
I borrowed one for the Snetterton 24hrs race in the 80's, only drove it from Peterborough to Snetterton and back - that was more than enough my old Commer was far better.
And if anyone remembers Commers that says a lot.

Q - Why do VW driver's girlfriends have such wonderful sun tans?

A - It's all the time they get for sunbathing in Lay bys.

Ah the old Commer eh? My early days of motorhoming were spent in one of those. 5 of us sometimes in one Commer Caravanette.

Happy days. More drivel about it here. Early motorhoming adventures and stuff
