We were heading north with a team from work to have a quick walk up Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon (known as the Three Peaks Challenge) We stopped off in the motorway services near Carlisle for fuel and food
As we drove in one of my colleagues said "I think there's something that will interest you", and he was right
This is an Azalai 130 Camper which is an incredible vehicle in terms of specification, but even more so in price.The companies website states "Vehicles are built to order and to the customer's specifications so it is not possible to give a firm price on the website."
Anyway it was very nice to speak to the owner and to be able to take a good look around it as I've been thinking of Flatdog Azalai Camper springs for Katy and it was great to be able to take a look at the set-up which included double shocks which some of the members of the 127 group have adopted for their own vehicles
In the chat I had with it's owner he was not complimentary of the fact that the 1st engine he had had in it had lasted only 1000 miles which is not much for something that's going to have cost so much. even so he now really liked it and it performed well and did everything he wanted to in getting him and his radio kit ( he was a ham) up to interesting places such as the Shetlands which is where he was heading
He was complimentary of the performance, handling and build so I guess you do get something for all that money
After that we headed up to Fort William to start our walk and whilst waiting (interminably) for the organizers to get around to it I went outside for a walk and found this being driven by some artillery guys on their way back from the Hebrides to Southampton.
As an alternative these are starting to come on the market, but at £21k it's a lot of money so Katy is safe for now (she also looks nicer)
