    sorry to disappoint you Geo :Sad:but the pic was taken sometime after 2001.

    the original idea of a convertion was thought of in 1997.

    its still a currently built motorhome but now with a diesel engine (correction...its a one off i think)

    Brilliant!
    A totally unique 'one off' and expertly finished. :thumb:

    I've lost count of the numerous white plastic boxes i've seen during my current trip. So far the only different ones i've seen have been a Dethleffs Fortuna finished in metallic silver and red and a Westfalia in silver, both lwb Transits.
