They are quite good, used to be all the rage for taking to France etc. We had friends with a massive one, I dont think they ever had all the attachments, awnings, bedrooms etc. fitted at one time.

that's a fantastic photo and a lovely looking little caravan. When you come to the UK are you planning on visiting any Scimitar events?

If you time your visit in August you could come along to the annual RSSOC weekend at Curborough in the middle of the country (http://www.rssoc-curborough.co.uk), it is a weekend of camping, car sprinting and generally a good opportunity to meet other scimitar owners from all accross Europe. You and your caravan would be made very welcome.

all the best, Matt
Hi Matt,
thank you for the compliment. Unfortunately, I cannot go this year to UK. We want to do in 2011 vacation by caravan in UK and then also visit Scimtar events.

Regards
Bernd

No problem Bernd, we go to Curborough every year so we'll be there in 2011 as well. I'll add details of the 2001 Curborough weekend after we have completed the 2010 event

all the best, Matt

I have latey been on the hunt for a triler tent/folding caravan but cant seem to find any good bargains.

So now im toying with the idea of find a stripped/write off/broken Scimitar, chopping the front end off, T plating the Chassis and fitting a Tow bar. The n the interior can be stripped and a simple
and probably quite comfortable memory foam matress caold be fitted.

Anyone done this before?

there have been a couple of GTE trailers done - not sure if any of them were just beds but it doesn't sound too difficult as long as you can wels a drawbar on? I don't htink I'd keep the weight of the rear axle myself but fitting indespension with the correct PCD could make it quite complex. Also, there's a lot of wasted space when you remove the fuel tank - unless you cut the floor out and lower it or make a storage area of some sort?

I do indeed still have it Roger, not sure it'd be great for sleeping in though, you might get both damp and cramped :lol:
