Back in 1989, our own Keith and Susie Smart travelled with their daughter, Caroline, through Spain and Portugal inspecting campsites along the way.
The trusty VW camper, which was a rather attractive shade of brown, served as their home as they went from site to site, ensuring each met the exacting Alan Rogers standards.
Starting in Santander they journeyed along the north coast, assessing three campsites a day, before driving down through Portugal and back into southern Spain. In Gibraltar, they caught a flight back to the UK while the camper waited for the next set of inspectors to pick it up and continue the tour.
Susie was kind enough to dig out a photo, and brave enough to let us share it...
