Our 1st. Van “Escargo”…

This is our faithful van, which we take to Europe each year. Up mountains or down into valleys, this van goes everywhere!


It is a Talbot Express Autohomes Avalon high-top camper-van/motor-home. Born in 1992 and lovingly cared for since,(we look after it – it looks after us, fair deal ). A two litre petrol engine with no frills takes care of all we ask of it. No fancy abbreviation stuff like P.A.S., A.B.S., C.L., A.C., E.W., T.C. and such.

On the domestic side it is on a par with modern vans. With duel fuel pressured hot and cold water in both galley and washroom, three way fridge, oven, grill and two burners, ducted blown hot air heating, electric flush loo, shower, double-bed, both swivel cab-seats, lots of storage arears and most important; a small wine locker.

We load the bare minimum of gear, say farewell to those at home and explore from John o’ Groats to Vienna and many, many wonderful places East and West between.
