    It's a safety feature.

    The manufacturers are worried the average Yank would forget to turn the drivers seat back round before pulling off:BigGrin:

    Just my opinion but £8000 for a 35 year old bus it's overpriced by £4000.

    as Jim said....pig ugly when new.....pig ugly now....and won't improve with age . :Wink:

    aww come on guys the most important thing when choosing a motorhome is the internal layout who gives a stuff if it looks like a bulldog chewing on a thistle after all you only look at the outside of it when you are walking up to it to get in.

    Lovely old bus, plenty of space, straightforward V8, a good conversation starter on sites. The thing that puts me off, is when people say "oh weve never used it" to me, that translates into "its knackered". I,d ,much rather spend a few quid, and be able to advertise "EVERYTHING WORKS"......., a much better selling point, but i,d still buy it:Rofl1:
