Positive points

Low mileage

Lots of ‘EXTRAS’

Solar panels and twin leisure batteries

Since 2006 it has never failed a MOT except last year when collecting it from storage for its main service and MOT the next day. I had to change a flat tyre on one of the alloy wheels for the steel spare, (faulty valve). Due to incompatible wheel types it failed the MOT but then passed it during its main service the next day when the garage replaced the valve and re-fitted the original alloy wheel!

Cheap to repair/maintain

No rust, (but some stone chips and paint ‘touch ups’).


Possible Negative points?

Not the fastest up hills, (non-turbo), but it gets you there.

No cab cruise control or AC.

Scratch on outside below habitation door.

TV has small scratch on screen. Not visible when viewing.

Some small DIY filling on roof area, but this is the advantage of the fibre glass body if it is slightly damaged.

Rear kitchen window has a slight scratch on it.

Fresh water gauge on Zig panel not accurate.

Step alarm can be intermittent (if not retracted there is a buzzer when ignition turned on).

Some stone chips on bonnet.

The top of the passenger door needs some touch up paint.


My personal registration number is currently on the Talisman. The original registration number will be re-allocated back to it.


The ‘hanging’ string lights shown in some pictures below the top cupboards are NOT included. 

Pictures available on request.

Inspection welcomed and would recommend M.A.C.I.C based in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire, which is not far from us. www.macic.co.uk
