    STOLEN FROM DITTON 19/12/15

    Thames 400E camper reg 777STA was stolen from the owners driveway in Ditton, Kent during the early hours of Saturday 19th December 2015. The owner has had the car since 1966 & has been used to travel all over the UK & Europe. The colour is potentially unique as it was resprayed shortly after the owner purchased it. The vehicle is fitted with a pop up roof revealing a different shade of green underneath. The van has been repaired on the bottom of the passenger door which will stand out. The van has a number of stickers on the windows & windscreen including ones for the Dormobile owners club, All Ford rally stickers & St Helliers, Yorkshire.
    This is the second 400E to have been stolen in Kent since March last year.
    There will be a high reward for information leading to the safe return of this vehicle. Anyone with any information can contact Steve on 01622 74158

    the first Thames camper van disappeared from Whitstable. Lovely vans, both of them. You would think they would be easy to spot.

    How does the thief intend to dispose of it? It's such a rarity that someone surely is bound to notice - pity the poor idiot that "buys" it.

    To love and cherish that van for all that time and to have some toerag snatch it. It must be devastating. What are some people like!

    There is another one, in blue near me, perhaps I should mention to the owner that this has happened, Peculiar thing to steal though as it is impossible to get sold on unless they are being stolen to order

    The colour is Ford Jade green. I had a 64 Cortina in the same colour. It'd stand out a mile so god knows which nutter is stealing them.
