After many of adventures, its sadly time to say goodbye to Boris.
Boris was purchased in 2018 as a shell, which the previous owner had put floor panels in, put new brakes on all round, new brake lines and rebuilt the engine.

Due to the engine being previously rebuild, all that I’ve done was remove the original twin solex carbs (which I still have) and fitted two twin Webber carbs. The engine’s done approx. 2, 000 miles and had a new fuel tank this year. Boris has had fitted new door seals all round and new window seals. All of the windows, apart from the front screen are original with Boris’s reg etched into them. Boris has had new door handles and locks fitted all round and comes complete with a spare key. Boris was serviced at the end of last year and stored away for the Winter months.

I personally restored the body work to the standard it is today ( I work in a body shop for a living). We had a new ‘just kampers’ wiring loom fitted alongside a leisure battery and split charger, mains hook up all carried out by an auto electrician.
I purchased and installed a brand new roof and canvas on Boris, which came with new gas struts and hinges. Made to measure and colour coordinated new mattress in the pop top roof.
We purchased a new full width rock and roll bed and had all the interior colour coordinated alongside the door cards.

Handmade and made to measure blackout curtains fitted all round Boris. Boris has had two new seat belts fitted in the front and two three point harness fitted in the rear.
We put new tyres on all around, including the spare, which have done approximately 2, 000 miles.
Our last trip away in Boris was to Perrransands in Cornwall August 2023 which is just under a 600 mile round trip. Since Boris’s last trip, he’s been stored away in a dry, damp free garage over winter.
Boris is a beautiful, solid little bus all round all ready to go on your first adventure.

I have many other pictures of him so please fell free to contact me with any questions.

Open to sensible offers, Boris was brought as a project for myself but then my children fell in love with him and we’ve had many of fantastic family holidays away in him and made memories to last a life time.
He draws lots of attention when out and about because of his bright colours so be prepared to be having lots of photos of him and receiving lots of waves
