For sale is our much loved talbot campervan, we have had this for few years now and it's only because the family is growing that we have to sell. Please read carefully as have put loads of information in this ad. It has Just has an MOT with no issues so is good until August 2020.
First up, quick summary of the equipment:3 way fridge240V hookupInverterMicrowave2 burner hob, oven, grill3.5kg butane bottle with regulatorshowergas hot water boilerTV with fold down antenna12V monitor and control panelTow barFiamma Bicycle rackPropex space heater 50L on board water tankgrey water drumFire extinguisher Pioneer CDplayer/radio with USB
The engine was rebuilt last year with reconditioned cylinder head, new valve guides, thermostat, water pump, belts etc. This means that it starts absolutely on the button every time and will happily cruise at 70 all day. The year before last, the master cylinder was replaced along with the starter battery.The electrics have all been upgraded and it comes with huge 110Ah leisure battery. There is control panel and remote monitor unit for the leisure system so you can see current in/out, total power used etc. There is also an override switch so it can be connected to the starter battery to give you boost in an emergency (note that this is not good for the leisure battery and we have not had to use this). The radio can be operated on either battery and comes with remote and remote speakers in the rear. The leisure system has an automatic charger when on the mains and there is switch to also connect to the starter battery if you will be spending long time static.
It has small shower room with extractor fan and porta potta toilet with hot water from the boiler. The propex heater has an outlet into the kitchen and thermostat mounted on the wall which means the van is toasty warm all year round. In the summer it also has skylight and roof vent which can be popped up. The sideways facing rear seats have lap sash seat belts so that it can legally carry adults.
Mechanically it has been very well looked after with new tires last year and plenty of life left in the other two (all commercial tires). Brakes were overhauled and oil changes carried out each year. The inner arches were welded last year and the outer arches were welded and painted just couple of months ago so are the best looking parts of the van. The bonnet has been fully welded and repaired although it looks little wonky from some angles. It also has rail for fitting an external tent although this is not included. There are also some bits and pieces that can be included for the right buyer such as hook up cable, filling hose, tools etc.
The bad bits: this is 28 year old van, its not perfect! There are some minor rust spots starting to poke through, please see the photos. The area at the bottom of the drivers door has the biggest hole but this is not an MOT issue. There is also spot under the number plate at the rear and couple of spots on the scuttle plate. If you have any concerns then please organise to come and see before you bid. The boiler recently sprung leak, it has been isolated so the rest of the water system can be used and the boiler still lights ok so this may be minor issue, don't know.With regards to the mileage, you can check the MOT history (which is free to anyone online) which indicates that in 2006 it had done 61k miles with the same reading for several years. The next reading in 2012 is 23k miles so presumably the speedo had problem and was changed out but this was before my time so can't say for sure exactly what has happened.
