Hi all,

Been off line for a while a bit of Aires and some bad connections,but all fine weather very good,travelled from Aix -en-Provence across the Camargue on the little D roads stayed last couple of nights at Gruissan port a great place for boats, my mouth is still dribbling at the view. Pushed on down in to Spain today as France is starting to close down for the Season,We have booked in for a few days at Les Pendres in Capmany in Cataluna to catch up with washing and to chill out a little after fighting with the Sat Nav for Five hours.

Rebuilt as a mobile home. Centre staircase fitted and a half top over the rear half, the front serving as a balcony. Conversion carried out by Londag, Basserdorf, very similar to their own conversion of SPM 21. The bus was given the name "Big Snail" visiting many other European countries with Peter Hasler.

Hi john t,

I was itching to look inside too,It was a very good conversion by the look of the out side and the back part of the roof had been cut down from another bus I think but the finish and paint work on the outside was perfect.Here's a couple of more pics but we are no longer on the site.I think it may have been a seaside bus that they ran in Blackpool or Weston super mare but not in this Livery,these are London Bus color's and the cream is perfect.
