They originally came from Rotorua but have recently moved to Matata and “Homely” is their mobile Bach which they’ve had for more than 20 years. In that time, they’ve completely rebuilt the interior including putting in features like slide out cutting boards and bench extensions.
John tells me that it is two Ford D750 chassis’s welded together powered by a Hino eh700 with a Manual Gearbox. It has a Leyland Bison Cab and the the exterior is colour steel. On top is a Butynol roof.
They’ve been all over in it and travel with their two small dogs Bear and Wolf.

They got a very clever friend of theirs in Rotorua to do the fantastic graphics on the side which make it quite distinctive.
As I walked away after chatting to them for half an hour or so, they looked very settled and content in their very comfortable Motorhome.
