    Greetings :)

    Due to the fact I have an ongoing cold/chest infection I am at home bored and so have decided to put photos of past as well as present vans to cheer my self up :)

    First up is current camper, a 1976 Devon pop top. Previous owner for 30 years!

  2. Loving the new one and such shiny hub caps too - quite jealous about those ;) I like the swing out cooker arrangement, although I'd probably set my awning alight using one of those ;) Which Devon conversion is it that you have?
    Love the green and white tin top too :)

    Thanks :)
    I think the tin top is my fave, it had a Laurie petite engine too and drove us back from southern Spain admirably!

    I'm keen on a shiny hub cap over an alloy to be honest.

    I think the Devon is a Eurovette, just from looking at other people's photos of theirs. I like the Devon but compared with T4 roof it's a pig to put up/down (for me) I quite fancy changing it for another tin top :)
     
  4. I'm with you on hub caps. I thought Eurovette too. I like Devon's :)

    Yes! Somehow I went from one extreme to the other! I keep telling Sarah it's warmer in the South but she won't have it. I think it's a Yorkshire thing where they don't believe anything unless it's in/about Yorkshire :)

  16. Great vans and nice places. Good luck with your cold. Advice re those Yorkshire folk, just be patient with them. It really is not their fault.
