Vehicle Description

Selling my wonderful van named ‘CRUZ’

Cruz has assisted me on many a journey around Europe and the UK. I lived in Cruz for 5 Months in the South West of France in 2022 and we have travelled from the furthest oceans to the highest mountains together.
It is with great sadness that I must now let go of my first true love as I will be moving to Australia in the not too distant future. I have no doubt the next owners will take Cruz on some amazing adventures and make unforgettable memories that last a lifetime.

Cruz is incredibly stealthy, very easy to park and fits under any car park barrier. (A big bonus when travelling certain parts of Europe where they don’t like bigger vans parking)

Cruz may be small.. But cruz sure is mighty

Cruz has a new MOT valid until July 2024 and 500 pounds worth of work done to make the van road worthy
