Hi, I live in the west coast of Scotland and I’m looking for a VW Topaz, preferably in Scotland.  I have a Fiat Doblo Microcamper which I can part exchange.  It’s a great wee vehicle but I want a toilet!!

Hi and welcome to the forum from our corner of Lincolnshire. As others have said the Topaz is a nice choice of van conversion. Good luck with you’re search.

Hi Lingirdy, welcome to the forum.  

Been a few years since I was up your neck of the woods, must try and get up there again soon as we love it.  Good luck in your hunt for a van.

Warm welcome Lingirdy from someone born in Kilberry, lived up at Ford till I left for work,  and have so many memories of mid Argyll.    My sister still regularly gets "The Squeek" and I usually get site of it every so often.   We still return regularly.   The site in Lochgilphead has improved immensely over the years.  wave
