Today I bought an early transit camper van, I was looking for a caravan on gumtree!

Will post a picture when I figure how.

Looks pretty good, very solid, no welding needed. Ford courier Ute engine fitted that has head gasket issues and it has a broken leaf spring.
Are leaf things something that can be fixed or do I need to source one?
Where can I learn all about these? Made in the uk and shipped? Is there a way to decipher the compliance plate?

Me, I’m British born living in Perth WA now, Volkswagen person normally but this was too cool to pass up.

Looking forward to cracking on....
