The first 33 years of this Excella 280's life were spent in Florida, and when new its purchase was more than $100,000. Its generous specification includes an on-board generator and a full kitchen that features an ice-maker. Bills detail money spent, including a new distributor and plug leads this September and a new solar system fitted in mid-2018. Said to be in great condition and 95 percent original it would make a first-class historic motor sport support vehicle and today it can boast appearances in a music video and French Vogue magazine. Mechanically it is described as being in good order, starting and running well, while the gearbox suspension and brakes are also good. With the potential to earn £700 per day it has the potential to provide a good income stream for any new owner willing to share their home-from-home experience.
