Delightful Dormobile
When Stan Bruton finally paid off his mortgage about 3 years ago, he decided to look for a split-screen bus. Something that he’d fancied for a while.

We simply wanted a right-hand drive campervan that we could stand up in! Not an unreasonable goal to set, and when this appeared on the website of UK Sports Cars in Canterbury, it appeared to tick all of our boxes, so without further ado, we knew it was time and we went for it. I was actually working overseas when I saw it make its first appearance on the for sale section, so I contacted my wife Lesley and asked her to pop over and take a quick look! It’s a good two and a half hours each way from our house to Canterbury, and luckily she fell in love with the bus. And just as soon as I returned to the UK, we arranged to buy and collect it and drive it back home to Fareham.

“When we bought it, it was pretty much up together, there was no rust or rot as much work had clearly been done on the vehicle in the past, but since then we’ve done quite a bit of work to it.
