Given the time and budget requirements needed to commit to a seasons competitive racing or rallying perhaps the more demand there is to utilise both transit and accommodation costs to trim the running budgets and get rid of the endless sight of dreary hotel rooms. That's exactly what our vendor, the rallying legend and four time British Historic rally champion David Stokes, has thought of with this vehicle. David, needed to safely and securely transport his Mk 1 Escort around the country and why not utilise the transporter as a Motorhome as well, as an all in multi purpose unit to save on those ever increasing hotel room and running costs. In fact, having spoken to David, he is confident he saves over £1000 a week on hotel and restaurant bills when he goes away for a weeks rallying using this vehicle.

The lorry is a Mercedes Atego 1823 with 374821 kms on the clock and four former keepers since April 2000. David has owned the vehicle for 6 years and has done approx 64000 kms in that time. The rally Mark 1 Ford Escort nicely fits in the back of the lorry, using a tail lift which also then becomes the back door.

The lorry has been well maintained and looked after with all bills and receipts kept. In the last two to three years new brake valves, hydraulic brake lines for the gearbox, new drag link from the steering to box, track rod ends and two new genuine arms on the anti roll bar have been fitted. David uses this vehicle between 12 to 16 times a year for various events and its never let him down.

The living section, as you would expect, has also received meticulous attention and love and has recently received all new parts including new water pump, water tank, water heater, carbon leisure batteries, three way full size refrigerator, full size cooker and a microwave. Six people can comfortably sleep in this vehicle, 4 singles and a five foot double bed are included meaning the whole team can eat, sleep race and repeat all in one vehicle.

Finished with 6 new tyres this multi purpose vehicle looks like a very promising proposition as you gear up for the upcoming season. This vehicle does have a TACO and will therefore require a HGV license to operate but it would for sure be worth contacting the DVLA to enquire about registering as a motorhome.
