Send us your stories - tales of woe or tales of joy!!
Where have you travelled in your bus - holidays, celebrations? What have you seen? A day trip or longer?
Have you been working through a full restoration or a few modifications?
It doesn't have to be anything fancy, it'd be great to share your stories.
Contact the magazine team by email at magazine@ssvc.org.uk
Thanks,

After mulling over wether to keep the 1500 sp in Carlos, I finally bit the bullet and invested in a new addition to the rear end of the van.
Really pleased with the outcome.
