Britain’s first motorhome revealed - As eccentric British pioneers 80 year old home on wheels trundles up for auction.
The pre-war creation of Capt Dunn, an aristocrat from Bexhill-on-Sea, is believed to be the earliest motorhome in the UK.

home from home on to the back, and then set off into the British countryside in his new creation.
