|In November 1966 we took delivery of our first Motorhome - the now legendary Ultra Van. 22'x8'x8', driven by a Corvair Turbo engine.|
Winter 1966/7 we were boondocking on a beautiful bay in Mexico called
Melaque (North of Manzanillo). I am holding a coconut carved in my
effigy... We spent a few Winters there and a whole year in Guadalajara,
before taking the Ultra Van, our Spaniel and a parrot over to Europe on
the "Stefan Batory", out of Montreal.
|Between 1970 and 1973, starting out in Switzerland, we toured Spain, Morocco, Portugal, Andorra, Austria, Italy, Greece, Yugoslavia, Germany, France, Holland and Belgium. This picture was taken in Switzerland and was used in advertising the Ultra Van in the New York Herald Tribune. It was sold to an American living in Nice, France in August 1973. He said, " I know I'm crazy buying a motorhome in order to get an organ!".|
