Spotted this a little while ago, parked on an Oxford campsite. Lovely, tidy, little motorhome. What is it? Anyone know anything about it?

If memory serves me right they were a 3 litre petrol engine. A lot of them finished up with the St Johns ambulance and used for private functions by them. Proper coach built body, some built by Jennings.
