Default Hi From England



We have had a 1995 Rialta for a couple of years and love it.
It seems like the makers of motor homes here are only just catching up with it's beauty but still a long way to go.
It was in a bit of a state when we got it but gradually we are sorting things out.
There aren't many 1995's in England. One other that I know about.
I saw the old Renault version on a Scottish TV programme once (in Taggart) and just last month another one in Hythe, Kent. It's so surprising to come across them here.

Hello Fred -


There should be about 3 dozen 95s in England - the result of the first & only Euro importer (German IIRC) going under & one of the UK dealers buying all the stock. At least some , if not all, are diesel - the only diesel Rialtas ever.


In addition, several are over in Europe as imports. There's one Winnebago dealer in the UK who seems to have imported & converted them regularly over the years.


And then a few of us, like myself, have shipped them over for use as tourist vehicles.

3 doz eh? I'll keep a lookout then. Mine was collected from the USA by a friend of mine who brought two back. Petrol of course and had to be changed over to 240V. They are great RV's to get around in and can tackle the worst hills with ease and country lanes with a bit of care. There is a bridge in Ponsworthy that is only 6'6 wide so we can't go there anymore but the rest makes up for it.
Really comfortable to sleep in too.
