    We are parked up at this lovely Aire in Palamos Costa Brava waiting for the dealer to prepare our new van

    i.e. service and ITV (MOT) and have the Oyster sat dish transferred as we decided to change back to a rear wheel drive Merc based van with air suspension as we have lost confidence in fiat based alko chassis due to very poor traction on wet grass and loose gravel, also the poor ground clearance i.e. exhaust and rear end grounding, the new to us van is even fitted with built in generator large enough to run the air conditioning, and hard wired cool box in garage for the rabbit food and large fridge freezer for the beer , ideal for Spain , I am also able to my own oil and filter changes on this van so saving a few euros.


    Can't wait to get our hands on it

    Interesting, I have never seen a Star-Line 660 of the 2000-2005 vintage before. Mine is a 630 and I thought the next size up was a 680. All three have broadly the same layout. Looks lovely.
