Bonzo the Beautiful Campervan

This beauty is called Bonzo. It is a 1971 Mercedes campervan and it is in great shape. Look at that lovely curved roof and cute little nose, the snug little wheels and  tiny quiff at the back – it is wonderful. The soft brown and taupe exterior perfectly complement the gold and burgundy velour interior. It comes complete with original fixtures including a cute little stove. It is the perfect little getaway on wheels.

I want to live in Bonzo.

For only 6 grand I could get a fully serviced and MOT’ed 1971 campervan with twin diesel engine which I could run on cooking oil and get around 60p a litre! Bargain (and if I got used cooking oil from a chip shop, strained it and used it, it would be about 6p a litre).

I can think of few finer pleasures than cruising along in my campervan, exploring the lands, meeting new people, pottering about and taking the slower pace in life. Ah, if only I had a spare £6,350 in my back pocket….

Until my dreams of having my own campervan can become a reality, I just wanted share this was wonderful machine with you.

  1. Oooh I sooo want a campervan too!! It would be soo lovely travelling round the country with the doggies in tow 🙂 Bonzo looks great x

  2. I want it so much. I'd happily live in it.
    I'm desperate to get a couple of girls together and go off in something like this for a month or so. I can't drive though. Pah!

  3. Hello, new follower, Paper Heart girl – thanks for joining the party.

    Thrifty Mrs – I can't drive either, I am hoping to start lessons this year….finally.

  4. This my friend, is what dreams are made of. Oh the Summer. The Van. The tunes. The picnics in the countryside.
