Actual! collection mission.

Recommended Posts

I saw you on the M90 headed north yesterday as we were coming back from Loch Ness - is that a Devon camper - there was one for sale up here recently and I thought that was it didn’t realise it was you!

I could have made you an insulting offer for the Sunny and you could have dropped it off !

Yeah! That was us, it is a Devon, not the one for sale up there though. I'd have probably accepted an insulating offer on the Sunny.

What were you driving, anything noticeable?

Nah a modern XC90 with a caravan and bikes on the roof - hardly unusual on that road yesterday!!


I was semi tempted with the Devon it was strong money but very clean - looks like a great layout inside

If it was there same layout as mine it'll have had a dining area/double bed at the back and two singles at the front. Then a w/c shower in the centre o/s with the kitchen opposite. We always leave the rear bed made up and eat at the front. My climbing mates sometimes sneer a little at the bathroom because of the space it takes up, but they're happy enough to use it when necessary!

It wasn't cheap but then there aren't many of that size that can sleep four and have a bathroom, both of which I really wanted. In an ideal world I'd convert a van myself but I just haven't got the time.

That sounds like the same layout - agree I would favour the bathroom and found it a good layout which was the interest.  Wouldn’t want to replace the caravan but fancy a day van and something to go places you cant get the van - just a short term itch to scratch!  In my youth if you told me I would tow a caravan and have bikes on the roof I would have laughed in your face!

A couple of spots from our journey, the Escort was in Tesco filling station in Cupar, it made me think of Hendry.:-/




Nice Mexican Beetle, I've not seen one in cream before, doesn't look too pineappled up.

      It is car shopping eve.
      I've done the important research, namely look at past live collection capers.
      And found a suitable car (here's hoping I do/don't win the Gallant steed roffle)
      I have a lift in a shittier car than one to be viewed sorted, a rendezvous with the seller (not autoshite member I don't think)
      Buy criteria: If it's not a total shitbox and if I think it will get me to where I need to be for the next week or so while my BMW is being fettled with then it will be a buy.
      Live collection caper criteria as laid out by @Jim Bell on a previous collection caper:
      "Collection thread tick list.
      Breakfast pic
      Car pic
      Petrol station pic
      Woolard pic
      (And for bonus points)
      Pic of a dog
      A pic of a car worse than the one you're collecting. "
      I also believe a poo count is normally required. Does that requirement also include photo of results?
      I will be travelling with a dog more than likely in a shit car. Not sure what a woolard is to take a pic though.
      This thread will have the added live excitement that if when I get there and the guy is trying to sell me a nail I have to reject it and start again!
      This is my first buy since being on this forum so if I go off piste feel free to shit-post. Anyway it's nearly 11 at night car-shopping-eve so I am going to get some shut-eye (as much as one can with a 10-month-old who hates sleeping) so if my cunning plan to sleep is interloped upon by said plentyn (thats wain in Scotts, bairn in North Eastern and child-faced daemon in Englandshire-ish) I'll here reading posts no doubt. See you all in a minute then.

      Now on the train to London, on which I have a carriage all to mysellf

      Heading south on an empty stomach because honestly I just forgot to eat again. Making use of the stupid economic power of the Xantia and the extra hands of Father Tickman.
      Off we go...
