Search launched for oldest Dethleff
Richard and Jane Olpin, who took over and revamped the Dethleffs Owners Club website in August, want to find the oldest model so they can feature it on the site.
The Staffordshire-based couple have added new features to the site but now want to find vintage models to demonstrate the longevity of the German vehicles.
But they admit that finding the oldest will be no easy task as Dethleffs started manufacturing motorhomes and caravans in 1931.
The oldest model they have found so far is a 1979 Pirat model.
Mr Olphin said: “Jane and myself are passionate about caravanning and very big fans of the Dethleffs motorhomes. We own a six-berth A642, which has taken us to some fantastic places.
“We know our search for the oldest model won’t be easy, but we thought it would be a fun way to encourage some debate on the site. So far the oldest we’ve found is a 1979 Pirat model.”
