N’owt stranger than folk!
That's exactly where this other tin top comes into it.
If I can't get my hands on a half decent pop top the far away tinny is a LHD, excellent condition, with great interior (smart, and not crammed) ... in other words we can be on the road and no more solo driving
This thread was supposed to be about how to check the state of the 79 pop top with its pans on
You’ve lost me now
Haven’t you got a very nice LHD tin top which doesn’t suit your needs?
Going to look at another LHD tin top in excellent condition.
It was a long time ago, perhaps 15 years, but there was once a RHD tin top for sale with 9,000 genuine miles. It looked like new, it was up for £7k and sat there for a year while rot box campers changed hands for more. I nearly bought it myself but probably like most people I didn't want a microbus and didn't want to ruin it's perfect originality by turning it into a camper.
Thusly, I think the market for such vans is tiny. Sod it - fit a poptop on it.
Tin tops are fab!!! Apart from when it’s raining and you’re trying to get dressed
I agree entirely!
We’ve had some great adventures in ours
At least with a poptop fitted it will get used
One night ok, two nights maybe, three nights glad to get home.
That’s what I don’t get!
If you’ve got a tidy tintop that you know and like, why not just fit a pop top to it? It’s not like it’s the last bus standing; there are millions of them out there!
I think the other issue is LHD, although I might be confused that one of the others was also a LHD, confused.
I think in @Dub and Dubber 's case his problem is he bought a left hand drive and his mademoiselle won't drive it.
I thought the potential other tintop was LHD?
I give up. Good luck in your search, but can I suggest deciding what you actually want before committing?
We did try that approach about two weeks ago @Dub and Dubber
I gave up on that thread too!
I leave for an hour to render this wall and what do I come back to?! ...
That was supposed to read RHD not LHD
We survive nine days when we do our Yorkshire road trips, but we are indeed glad of a comfy bed at the end of it!
But that's with a poptop?
I lived in mine for months with a poptop.
The westy has yet to do anything other than a long weekend, ie, three nights.
Nine months is outstanding I knew you lived in it for a while but wow, hats off to you!
This thread was supposed to glean some tips on looking at buses with belly pans on ...... because I'd found a RHD pop top that's near enough to go see for a change.
The 75 tinny is, (as you will know about from our messaging) a good "swap" for ours, being in good shape, being RIGHT hand drive, and with a nice interior that includes just the right amount of "camping kit" to suit us.
In other words there are two buses that would be fine, but I have to find out what the 79 pop top is like underneath, in the hope that it's not a horror story, in which case that's the one I'll go see.
If it's not that hot, and ours sells fairly soon, the tinny would be worth seeing ............
Where on earth did you get 9 months from? More like 3. That was plenty.
