Freedom. This is what this style of holiday can offer, the ability to pack up and leave, destination unknown, and simply enjoy the country's highways and byways and, when you arrive at a destination of your choice, you have the ability to park up and stay for as long as you like. Take the family and enjoy each other's company without the television and begin to appreciate the outside world, there really is nothing like the English countryside in the summer. This example has a number of benefits over its more Teutonic cousins, mainly though; the reliability of the Toyota engine and a longer wheelbase giving a larger and more practical living space inside. It is extremely well appointed internally with three belted seats up-front and two double beds to the rear; one made from the folding bench seats and one in the concertina roof space. A gas-fired hob and grill can be found in the kitchen area alongside a fridge and various storage lockers. To the left is the eating area (seating four) and a wardrobe. The condition throughout is exceptional which reflects somewhat the single ownership it has had from new. Used during the summer months only, it has a comprehensive service history missing only a few in the last 33 years of faithful service. Supplied with eleven months left to run on the MoT test certificate and the original handbooks and history file, this represents good value, good condition and an extremely reliable brand.
