Hello fellow commer fans! :)
I purchased my first commer van a 1973 PB wanderer (PAM) lovely van and in good mechanical condition (I have done 300 trouble free use this first week! :)
I will be carrying out the usual repairs and maintenance required to keep her on the road and importanty lots of camping holidays and weekend breaks away in her!

Hi Dan and welcome to the Madhouse :)
Looks like a decent van you've got yourself and one of the best conversions too:cool:
It looks familiar, I'm sure it has been on here before, then again most of them have over the years - it is the place to be after all:)

Howdy Dan, nice van you have there:cool: I think there was no camper interior as the previous owner used this as a van for his parts stall at various shows, if I remember correctly:)

Wow how brilliant!! :) Looks like your trip was a success! Gladys is fantastic what a lovely example.

Thank you so much for the pictures exactly what I needed to see! I hope to have PAM in a similar condition next year doing what they were built for!
