Ouch - that looks like it could be an expensive repair.

Looks like OVW 824M, if that helps search on the Dormobile forum maybe?

Hopefully occupants are fine and the vehicle can be repaired!

Having crashed my own 88" head on with a tractor I can say that's easily repairable for a couple of hundred pounds, especially with second hand wings. Looks similar damage to mine in which case both dumb irons would need doing

I'm sure that's the Dormobile recently sold by John Brown 4x4, was advertised for 18,000 british pounds :stars:

Hopefully occupants not hurt, not a good start to dormobile ownership though.

Looks like you a right Jerry, same registration.

I wonder if it was recovered by John Brown for repair?

Odd angle of impact.
I'm not really as bad as I make out. Despite what people say.
