NEW GUY FROM THE UK

Postby Bruce Boogie [OP] » August 31st 2009, 10:43am

GREETINGS TO ONE AND ALL

I'm hunting for a UK Astro or Safari and found the forum on my hunt for a van.

This looks great and has encouraged me to try harder. We had a VW camper van but didn't really like camping very much - we missed the van and have decided to go for a real van this time.

We need full lap and diagonal seat belts and that isn't easy.

I'll be in touch later - meanwhile have a great UK Bank Holiday and Stateside enjoy Labor Day

Keep on Rockin'

Just heard from a guy selling a full size black Astro with full seat belts and LPG - they seem VERY big to us Brits - any points of view about the V8 beast. He even has some massive 5 spoke wheels to fit with new tyres at an extra cost

Thanks S & S

I'm still hunting - this could take a while - the big day van just seems sooooooooo long for the UK.

But it has 7 full seat belts and a V8 - how much gas do I want to use?

Cheers

Hi bruce.

7 belts and a v8 - i'd have that in an instsant - i got the LWB version of the Safari with 2 rows of bench's in - has got lap belts on each of the middle so your 7 full belts is very unusual, sounds a nice van though

Oh and welcome :D nice to see yet more uk'ers here!!
