This confirms some of the info I have read but there seems to be very little info available on this van. It is strange that all the other cosult vans I have seen of the early 80.s date have a sloping crested roof. The only one I have seen with a flat roof is the abby executive and the Piper, both
of which were made when cosult took the CI brands.
I have searched and searched for the 415 and have come found nothing. The nearest has been the 417 & 414 from the range but for the period 79-84 all these seem to have plain green decals. It would appear that the paintwork on my van is original.....so why the green & white pattern? I have also read that Cosalt generally stopped putting seperate gas lockers on in 84.
Apparently in the early nineties Cosalt went over to making only static vans. Do you know what method was used to attach the cupboards etc to the walls on the tourers?
My van appears not to have any fixings within the van. so must have been attached before outer skin was put on. I have seen other 80;s vans with furniture etc, attached from the inside, possibly suggesting that my van had a later production method. It does;nt really matter when it was made.....I would just like to have a more accurate date than...80's to 90's.
Thanks again for your post.
