cant answer that think its just the economic climate . i would jump in tomorrow and drive to morocco in it . he wanted 12 grand but 10 will see it go i think. he wrote too much about it on the advert .

gary nx doors truck ended up going to ian and liz members on here . its been going abroad every year and is over there now in france . ian was actually here last week and is still delighted with it .
it was a bit high and wide . but being on an MAN truck they are wide to begin with . i like mitzie or isuzu nice narrow trucks .

i just thought it might give a few ideas . tried to put fulltimers truck on but i cant get his pics to come up. thought coolla will put his bus on . i do like the caetano. they get all over gibralter and there are some narrow roads there. think nigel should put some of his old bus on as well.
i havnt got any of my old bedford vega . but it was a 32 seater. j reg old j 71. used to belong to gusscotts coaches near halwill junction devon ,then bude scouts . then us.

nugget sold that one a few years ago , now he has purple bobs old daf prison truck convertion.
but mpg is anything from about 19mpg to about 25 mpg . certainly with a daf the 150 engine gives a bit more than the 130 . dont use all its power so bit more economical.
again like every thing my mitzy varies between 15-16 to 18.19 mpg . where i buy fuel ,supermarket or garage . uk or abroad, all make differences . the best is usually the cheap southern morocco fuel. the scenery is so good you just drive slower and more steady.
also its amazing when on the bumpy off road pistes in maroc you very often get even better mpg . might be down or up to the heights you are going . .or is it coming down and not revving makes the difference.
one day i might remove the workshop and all the junk i carry in mine might get better mpg.
