Hi all. I am new to all this so here goes. About 12 months ago I purchased a Talbot Express Merlin motorhome. Merlin needed some love and attention being a 1986 2 ltr petrol First of all the doors were hanging off. On removing the trims the wooden frames were rotten, these I replaced and rehung the doors. Next the roof leaked, so spent a day resealing roof. The rear springs were sagging the opposite way. I purchased some rear spring assistors from Grayston, the kit consisted of 4 small coil springs which fitted into supplied brackets, 2 springs each side of wehicle. These made a tremendose improvement to driveability and ride comfort also lifted vehicle by 5 inch. My next major improvement was to have Merlin converted to run on LPG I had two 60 ltr tanks fitted one each side under side skirts out of sight. The conversion has been a major success, and Gas is half price of petrol, also good for environment. I have some bodywork to do on exterior, then to look at updating interior, this will give me something to do in near future. as I am now a retired single motorhomer. Hope this gives some insight into my van and me, would be nice to here from anybody with similar van. Bye for now, happy motorhoming. Bill.
