Go anywhere, live how and where you want. 2007, 31,000miles, petrol/LPG. 6,696KG (regular car driving licence). Left Hand Drive 6.8 Triton V10 362BHP, auto gearbox Ford F53 Chassis. Reversing camera (with mic). East/West queen size bed. New 4-place expandable dining table. New real leather upholstery. Velvet curtains, day/night blinds. Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay radio/nav. 3 ice-cold ducted AC systems. Full gas cooker (3 rings + oven & grill). Full size fridge/freezer (12V, 250V, LPG). There’s a YouTube video here. And I’ve 100+ pictures here. Weve owned Beast since February 2018 (two and half years) and enjoyed him immensely. Hes called Beast because thats what a campsite attendant labeled him on first sight (here comes the Beast); it seems appropriate. In this time weve been to France (several times), Switzerland (twice – where we live), Italy, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Holland (three times), and all over the UK (from Scotland to Wales to the South coast). Hes never missed a beat. Mark imports the best, little used, RVs from the U. And has a thriving business and after sales service team. Matt had used Beast for family holidays, and we acquired him to see if the travelling life was for us wed never owned a camper van, caravan, or even a tent! Beast was a compromise between a huge RV (requiring a HGV license) and a European camper. Being under 7.5t, and being old (taking my test before 97), means I can drive him on my regular car license. The first thing we did was refresh the interior. With three slides, he feels bigger than a lot of one bedroom flats. With a spacious lounge/kitchen, separate bedroom (with desk and lots of cupboards), and a large shower room, weve spent months in Beast without ever feeling cramped. He’s bigger than a hotel room, and much more comfortable all your own stuff with you – no packing! We also gave (and continue to give) Beast a thorough mechanical work-over. Hes regularly serviced, has new tyres, and most importantly – used. Weve learnt that one of the biggest problems with RVs is their lack of use; they build-up a litany of problems because they sit idle. Weve gone through Beast replacing everything from step motors, pumps, piping, you-name-it. All of the mechanical squarks were due to lack of use. Beast has just been MOT’ed (passed first time), so has twelve months remaining. At 34 Beast is surprisingly manoeuvrable. I think (know) the short wheelbase (17) helps. We can fit onto virtually any pitch because the length is largely overhang. This means we just overhang the grass on a lot of pitches, and as long as you let the site know you need space, few have turned us away. Weve taken Beast to all the city sites (Edinburgh, London, Munich, Amsterdam), and had little trouble fitting in. Beast has two large propane tanks (three counting the habitat/heating/cooking one). These propel us between 300-400 miles at a price equivalent of around 15mpg. If you keep to around 50mph you easily get this. We rarely use petrol, but there’s a 75 gallon (nearly 300litres) tank which will take you another 500-600 miles should you wish 1,000 mile range! Weve used about one tank of petrol in 2.5 years (starting and the generator). As mentioned, campsites with full service (electricity/water/drainage) are available everywhere. Beast has allowed us to live in comfort all around Europe for a fraction an AirBNB or hotel would cost. It just makes it so tempting to spend a month in Amsterdam, Munich, Como instead of home (were in IT so can work anywhere). Beast is built on a Ford (F53) truck chassis. Its the same chassis they use for the heavy duty F250. Most RVs under 15t are based on this or the Chevy Workhorse chassis. Im glad we have the Ford; very easy/cheap to get parts brakes, filters, etc. The V10 6.8L Triton is barely stressed in this application, and common thinking is its good for glacial mileage if serviced properly. The domestic LPG tank is good for a month in winter (when using the gas blown heating), or nigh-on forever in summer (or when hooked-up to on site electricity). All the batteries have been replaced (chassis and coach) and are kept fully charged by the solar panels. When out wild (not on site) we only use the generator for the microwave. The fridge/freezer works off 240V, 12V, and gas, so we never have to worry about that. The regular cooker (with three rings and oven) runs off LPG and is big enough to cook a proper Sunday roast. Theres a microwave and twin basin sink to complete the kitchen (with copious cupboard space). Hot water comes from a 6 gallon gas/240V boiler, and takes about 5 minutes to heat from cold. No European style camper showers here turning off the water during showers! Nor do we ever use site shower blocks (going out half dressed). Beast has a proper bathroom with everything youd have at home. The shower is glass enclosed (no horrid shower curtains) and really good. When using the tanks (not hooked-up on site), weve normally enough water for four days regular living (no compromising our shower length/water use). The waste tanks are similarly huge – good for a week if not hooked-up. Heating is LPG or 240V. Weve gone wild on top of a French mountain (where we didnt want to run the generator) and the LPG heating system kept the bus at 25C in January. You can also heat with the two roof-mounted AC units (240V powered), although weve never used them for that. All told there are three AC system counting the engine operated (cab) one; they all (like everything) work perfectly. Weve used the 240V AC system when in Italy (a lot); keeps the bus around 20C when 30C+ outside. Weve used them on site without any complaint (not too loud). Beast has two regular LED TVs, a satellite system, and HDMI/USB inputs (we play films off of USB sticks/computers). Theres also a regular (wind-up) antenna for digital terrestrial TV (100s of channels). It also has up to the minute European navigation onboard. In addition to the inside storage, youve 7 huge lockers around the bus. This is the full size model, with full size lockers. Two of the lockers go all the way through to store large/long stuff. Youll never run out of space if you want to keep the bus under 7.5t! Various stuff goes with the bus: pipes, hoses, some spare parts. All the RV’s original, and continuing documentation is included. Instructions for all the appliances, service receipts, old MOTs, etc. Are contained in the original documentation carrier. I’d like him to go to a good home (an adventurer). If you can’t afford him, please don’t waste your or my time. If you’re interested in Beast, please ask anything you want. He’s parked in London and I’m happy to pick you up from Chingford or a nearby tube station if you need to come without a car.
