The price does initially make you wonder if they're worth a punt though?

Reminds of when I went looking for a monkey bike. There are the genuine Honda ones and the Chinese copies, I paid the extra and bought a Honda one, nuff said...

Well, after 5 years, I am now selling my converted Carry. it has now done 98,000 miles, still going strong, but I now need a larger option as my personal circumstances have changed, and I need more that a 1 berth option!

The has had a handful of things go wrong with it, but it is extremely reliable.

A hole appeared in the sill and the wheel arches began to go, so I had them attended to this year before the deep rot set in.

Anyone interested can see the conversion story at http://steamydave.co.uk/campervan and there is a full itinerary there.
