It was touch and go, but the camper was tested, re-registered and taxed in time to make the boat from the Isle of Man to Ireland. We worked our way south to the Ring of Beara, which had the greatest number of open campsites. We had 3 sites totally to ourselves! Were we the only ones mad enough to hit the road over Christmas?
The camper behaved well. We had a few teething problems as it was our first trip, but we stayed warm and ate well! The long drive back to Dublin highlighted that the cab heating isn't working - a little job for the spring!
The camper is a 1984 Dodge 50 mk 1 Multicruiser. It looks like a smaller version of Brian - is Brian a Multicruiser? Does anyone know anything about the company?

 Awww that is such a cute little motorhome, Brian is a multi suncrusier a bit bigger than yours, they were built in Hull from what I have been told, some of the fittings in ours are from Hull for sure, like the electric panel.

We were also out n about over the festive season in Sussex (we live in Yorkshire) in Brian

sorry about the bad quality of the next picture, but you get to see how long Brian actually is.

 If you post the vin number i can get you some more info on your vehicle from the original dodge / renault order build spec sheets. It will also have an address for the people who bought it and converted it...maybe.

Hi if you look at the old picks on the website you'll see brian in the snow at christmas. He spent 7 years in Meribel in the french alps so had many snowy ones! I was told by the guy that I bought him from that multicruiser made vans in Hull and I have seen some advertised Built on other chassis, merc being one. They used the same colour scheme from what I have seen and others had 5 lights at the top on the front too. Hope you enjoy your van as much as we did. He was named Brian after the dude on the magic roundabout and like brian he is snail slow and carries his home on his back. Nice to see you guys got to get together at the 09 meet up. Phil, the previous owner of Brian (now in Melbourne). Ps Greg and co are great folks and noble advocates for all things Dodge. All the best

 Hi Phil and Lou

We just spent time in Leicester in Brian at a Music event we were working at, was the most luxury we have ever had at an event, the bus we have is great but Brian is King of Motorhomes, so easy to drive too, I know we have lived in him and travelled about but it was our first 5 day event we have done with him (I sorted the electricle problem out, was just a bad earth and battery not charging properly) and I will email you soon as I should have done ages ago..whoops.
