my campa cost me 8 visits and 12 cups of tea with the elderly owner, I saw the van under a carport a couple of years back and knocked on the door, the elderly owner was hesitant to let it go, ... "now now sonny, I want to restore her one day but your are welcome to have a look." a $1000 later and another $600 on RWC and rego and I was the very very proud of a stock standard fully imported Bedford factory fitted pop top camper van in original condition with MINIMAL rust wooo hooo ..... been spending low budget money on her eversince, in real terms probably owes me $3000, bought other beddies for parts and then sold what was left for more than I paid so never suffered any losses. B ;) been offered $6000 cash but me say NO.   ;D

Seeing as i bought Mystic Fantasy as it is, i really don't want to say how much i paid for it in fear of upsetting you guys, but let's just say it was a bargain. But when it comes to my other van, Bad Company (XC VAN) it owes me just over $42,000. i bought it as a stock sundowner for $3500.   MMMMMM , no wonder it took me so long to get my deposit for a house  ;D

I'd like to say not much but i'd be lying. The van cost me about $4500 way back in '85 and I guess over the years I've put another $15K into it. If i had to pay someone else for the body work, interior, paint, mechanicals etc then I guess it would be heaps more. Deffinately helps if you can do the work yourself. But to hell with the cost, I wouldn't be without it.

By the way guys, DONT let the boss near the reciepts. She'll either start moaning about the cost of your toys or will want something of similar value for herself and thats the expensive bit by far.

G'day

My cheapest van was $0, my dearest is $19,000 and it is still not finished.
Most were between $3000 an $6000.
My current runner is a CFL truck with V6 that owes me about $9,000 so far.
How much all up? With over 30 CFs laying around, more than I care to think about.

Regards

Chris
