raynipper I have finally found another Ford based odd ball camper. It's an El Dorado Starfire RV and I have only seen one in the flesh. A little OTT and they didn't sell many.

barryd Wow! Its amazing. I would have loved that when I was 17 instead of my Mk2 Escort van with a mattress in the back.

Speaking of which, dont let that Salty Sea Dog Sailor Tugboat anywhere near it and certainly dont invite him in alone. Dont say I didnt warn ya.

Mrplodd I bet itís REALLY interesting with a bit of side wind!!

Wonderful bit of kit though, thanks for taking the time to post some pictures.

raynipper Wonderful project. Ford Cortina's at the time were thick on the ground and made a good base for many DIY conversions. Love the pics.

Raimondo Hi, pic's youasked for are here, all of my camper except the chassis it is just one from the vehicle history file which I thought might interest you.

Mrplodd Well you certainly neednít worry about wearing your headlamp flasher switch out acknowledging similar vehicles on the road!!

That has got to be a VERY rare beast indeed. I really hope you derive an enormous amount of pleasure from owning and using it. I suspect you will pestered mercilessly on campsites by people like me who would have 101 questions about it.

I will certainly keep an eye out for you from now on. Oh, and welcome to the forum as well !!

Ah, that's a blast from the past - he was a great fount of wisdom.

Carl_n_Flo I recall that one of the journos on one of the motorhome magazines - a technical specialist - built one himself. I seem to remember that he wrote a book about it too.

Cant recall his name, and it was many years ago now.......1980's I think.

Quite a well-known chap. He wrote a few books on motorhome maintenance etc.
