    Hi Ken and welcome to Fun. You have a very nice motorhome. The original Autocruise vans were very good and well built.
    I live near Crook and have just come past your home on our way back from the Factory Fabric shop at Prudhoe. We have collected the upholstery fabric for the van we are having converted. If you are stuck with ANYTHING just ask the funsters or as I'm local just PM me.
    I hope you enjoy your purchase.
    Wilf

    Hi, i am hoping to buy star spirit its 2 litre engine, is this powerful enough? Also does anyone know if there is an autocruise owners club pre 2009 when swift took ownership as they don't want to know anyone before then.
