Judging by the description, this Moggy camper was built 40+ years ago by a company in Bagshot. I wonder what it'd be like to drive?

In a strong head wind I suspect the steering might become very light or non-existent.

It would probably have looked a bit better if the camper body had been extended over the cab.A bit,not a lot Very Happy .
An extra back axle might have been prudent too.
I'm amazed somebody actually paid money to have this built in the first place.
