    Hi guys, was originally planning on converting a van but struggling to find something local (I'm on the Isle of Man so a small market!). The attached has come up for sale and wanted some opinions if possible....? Anything to look for if I go test it? Anyone owns / owned one? Thank you!

    Early 80,s I had one which was originally an out patients bus, luckily with clear windows with the bonus of a higher roof, stripped out i made two single beds with a hammock type bed over the cab where my two small kids slept end to end
    It worked well.

    Am I correct that you do not have MOT testing on the IOM ?

    The major risk is RUST apart from that everything can be fixed.

    Well even rust can be fixed if you have the skill or alot of money to pay someone else to do it

    Hi Harrow,

    Yes no MOTs on the Isle of Man, but if we try and buy a vehicle from outside the IOM that's 3+ years old it has to go through the Manx test to get it on Manx plates (which isn't easy) which means we have a very limited market and thus everything more expensive Very frustrating.

    Will deffo check for rust, they have said bodywork needs attention so I'm kind of expecting it!!

    Thanks

    O f course this is only my opinion, I had three of these and they were the biggest load of junk I ever bought!! Should have learnt my lesson on the second. But then bought an old community bus and converted it to a camper. Yet again it broke down. Side slung engines were never any good, wait until you try and change the spark plugs! If I was you I would steer clear of it.
    There are far better second hand camper vans for sale than them.
