    It shouldn't be too hard to spot. I've ever only seen one of those before, and it was in Norway!

    I do hope that it is recovered soon, unmolested and undamaged. That is a damned good motorhome, far to good to be driven by a scroat!!

    Good luck.

    These coachbuilts are so rare that it will not be stolen for the UK market,but to go back where it came from,Europe being a left hooker.I have a Distance wide and was told to guard it with my life as all these VW coachbuilts are now fetching very good money abroad.
    I know its a long shot,but contact the ferry companys immediatly,prefurably with photos.
    My comiserations.:cry:

    Sincerely hope you get this back in one piece, some people just don't care about the heartbreak they cause when they steal anything, thieving toe rags.

    Another reason to nail these scum and get them off our streets.

    Sorry to hear of your loss, you must be very angry, I would be.

    I have just sold my VW T4 based Westafalia California, and whilst speaking with a guy who specialises in VW I learned that left hookers (as was mine) are a prime target for the thieves.
    Even more if they are VW, very popular in Eastern Europe where they can be re registered and then exported to anywhere, mainly Germany, Austria etc.

    I hate to tell you this but it is probably in another country by now, they (the thieves) have a well organised route, they use containers and will, no doubt have changed the appearance
    and swapped the number plates for something more continental.
