My first post!! Although I did join 8 years ago & never posted blushes

It is a big bus... but we love our Midas G.
There are only 2 of us now as our daughter has 'grown up' and moved out.
It's a great 'van for 2 - although some might say too big?

We bought it new in 2004 and have now done around 25,000 miles.

I've seen 4 or 5 and a few years ago emailed Auto-Sleeper's to find out how many were made.
The answer shocked me and was:

Thank you for your enquiry regarding the Midas range. We built a combined
total of 20 of the two models.

Regards

The 2 models were the Midas G (garage model) as shown in the link by Paulmold and the Midas EL (end lounge) as in CruizingComet's link.

Wish our graphics/stripes were as vibrant as those in Paulmold's link

Can anyone help with a source of replacement graphics?

Hi tikki

Surprised to hear they only made 20 models in total, wish more info like this was available to us on the forum.

By the way this site has only been going since Feb 2011 (just over a year) so you must be thinking of ASOC

Good question Wildmoss, as I think I have only seen the orian version or could have been a Vivanti version at a show.

Looking for graphics, try looking under signmakers or sign writers in your yellow pages it is suprising what these fellows can come up with, many can even match your existing ones.
