  1. Hi
    After a couple of conversations in other folk's threads it's time to advertise Bertha 'properly'.

    1978 Super Viking

    New Engine fitted in 2006 - now has less than 10k miles on


    Full Respray 2007

    Less than 40k miles in the last 15 years


    MOTs, service records and receipts for 15 years, from only 2 owners

    Electronic ignition. Electric hookup.


    MOT and tax March 2014

    Face-off stereo and 10 stack CD

    Driveaway awning, weatherproof cover, fiamma bike rack - all included.

    I have owned her for 18 months. I went 5 years without a bus before falling for her. But after 2 summers use, my wife has decided she (wife, not bus!) is too old (and so am I apparently) and has politely instructed me to pass her on to someone who will use her and enjoy her more....

    She is solid underneath, has had decent exposure to Waxoyl in the past. Bodywork is great (but not perfect). Original inside. Sleeps 4 upstairs and 2 down, although we've only ever used her for the 2 of us.

    She has started first time every time for me, she cruises all day on the motorway at 65 and is a solid as an ox.
    I have had her serviced twice and haven't needed to do anything else.

    Bad points - roof canvas needs replacing unless you want to keep the yacht sail tape that keeps the pvc windows adhered to the vinyl. (it is totally waterproof, btw). There are two 5p sized 'bullet holes' in the fibreglass on the roof that need filling and painting over. Brakes could be improved (couldn't they all?)

    I am based near Stockport. She is about to go to farmer Robert's barn where she spends the winter...I've got plenty of pics if anyone wants a look.

    I will sell her for £8,000. I won't sell her for less.
