Earlier one was a Clio, Rich. This has to be better though: http://www.flickr.com/photos/triggerscarstuff/4579058967/in/photostream/

C15 Romahome Pete?? Absolutely damn awful donor vehicles. Gutless, no power steering on most of them and the brakes -- oh my gosh the brakes--
what brakes??? The only way to stop the Hideous things was chuck an anchor and chain out of the drivers door.

But the Berlingo based ones were great especially the 2litre turbo diesels 110bhp and 110mph AND brakes that REALLY worked. The Outlook and the Duo and the Duo Plus are the best caravan investment you can make. They hold their value like Gold. I dont think there is a better Caravan for holding its
value. C15 ???? My answer to that ---- Third Party Fire and Theft and a box of matches.

But my favourite of course is the Hi-Jet Free Spirit Demountable naturally. Dont hold their value like the Berlingo but who cares?
Its the Base Vehicle we love. bounce bounce

I see quite a few of these about, I think some were adapted for wheel chair seating in the back too.

Talking of anchors, that austin minivan with the shed on the back has to be pretty sail like

Matt if you are talking about the picture of the C15 --- it is a Romahome.
There would be no chance of it being a wheelchair carrier though as the rear galley area is only 24" deep and the once piece aluminium stable door assembly was just 20" wide.

The galley itself is a moulded sink and cupboard on the n/s and cooker and fridge/cupboard
on the o/s which were all part of the integral construction of the interior.
If that were taken out it would considerably weaken the structure and the same goes for
the bunks too--moulded in.

Its much more likely that it was the C15 van you are thinking of as they were converted for
wheelchair carrying.
