Low budget camper with a lot of fun


Fuel pump failed. But I repaired it myself.

I inserted a fuel filter because I didn't trust the internal one in the fuel pump.

General Comments:

Replaced the front seats with a pair from a Citroen BX.

This is a low budget camper with a lot of fun. If you find one, don't hesitate.

It's rather noisy, but it's possible to reduce the noise.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
