I don't know. being a mog owner and on holiday, I had to go back and take a photo of it when I spotted it outside of the garage/yard where it was sitting. It was down in Cornwall, so quite a few hours from me in Bristol.

That camper does look good, kind of like something you'd see in a skyfi movie.

I think it is a 508, looks like one of those long Mercedes vans!

Looks good. I'd love a camper for mine but I can't see me ever driving it far enough that I can't go home at night! :D
