That's a couple of crackin' motors you've got there. I was tempted by a CI coachbuilt on eBay 8 years ago, but it was the week we were moving house, and I really couldn't, could I?

Hi and welcome :)
That looks like a seriously nice van with a few tasteful embellishments, very nice. It is indeed a CI Motorhome but can't tell you how many are still around, there's a few still out there though. A lovely place to return to at the end of your hikes:cool:

Thanks all - first night camping done and with 120 miles at an easy pace all is running well.

Thanks for the confirmation of the model variant

Nice Commer. Had to sell mine a few years back but still look in here and meet up with the Commer Fans whenever I can. They're a great bunch..........if a little weird.
