I have a 1994 Talbot Express Highwayman II with a 2500cc deisel engine. Finding any information on this vehicle and the specifications, reviews or internal plans is very difficult.

Does anyone know of any reviews or main site for this make and model?

Many thanks

Andy

Not sure, but wasn't this an 'Autohomes' product?

'Autohomes' are no more, but a former employee (can't remember his name) started up Autovan Services Ltd, bought the factory stock of spares, and does repairs and refurbishment from his address at 32 Canford Bottom, Wimborne, Dorset, BH21 2HD. I'm looking at his advert on page 249 of April MMM, and his e-mail address is


If you're not sure whether your vehicle is an Autohomes (no name anywhere), does it have a large, stylised capital 'A' on the front of the luton? If it does, then it's an 'Autohome'. Even if it's not, I'm sure Autovan could help with repairs, etc. I've not used them, so can't give a recommendation, but their name regularly pops up in the magazines.

Good luck.

Barry

Thanks for your suggestion. I will follow that up. I dont have the letter A that you mentioned and I dont think that it is Autohomes but I cant be sure. Ive seen a few of them about. Perhaps I will bump into someone who has researched the history of this type of motory home.

All the best

Andy

I spotted this:-

3. Define a Highwayman:
(a) a robber of stagecoaches
(b) a road maintenance agent
(c) a popular, high value-for-money motorcaravan built by Autohomes?

on The Practical Motorhome site


So I'm not sure what you've got there, Andy. Can you post a picture of it?

Hi again,

Interesting comment about the Highwayman. Then I go and take another look at the vehicle and I could crawl under a stone and hide. Its a Highlander and not a Highwayman. How embarassing.

However, your Talbot Express finding does show that it is indeed that type although mine is an L Reg from 1994.

Details of mine are at

Thanks for your help Very Happy

Mmmmm!

I don't recognise it, but I still think that it's an Autohomes product - it's typical of their motorhomes.

I found these:-
Which describes an 'Autoleisure Highlander'. No picture, but I don't think this is yours because they mention a Reimo elevating roof, typically fitted to [u:ae1922560f]vans[/u:ae1922560f].

But this well-known dealer:-
describes the following - AUTOHOMES HIGHLANDER 1993 5 BERTH DIESEL WITH POWER STEERING 2 OWNERS VERY CLEAN 14,950-00 - but unfortunately without a picture.

I'm sure someone in our group will either own one, have owned one, or at least give you the definitive answer.

Me? I'm still sticking with Autohomes!

Barry

I think you could well be right. Its amazing how much information there is on the internet but then how little there is when you really need it. Im amazed that there isnt much more on this vehicle. It is popular by all accounts and does seem to hold its value.

A chap I met in Cornwall last year said it was the best 5 berth he had ever owned. I should have got more information from him as he was quite knowledgeable about the vehicle but I didnt give it much thought at the time.

I will dig a bit deeper and see if I can find any further distinguishing marks on the vehicle or any give away labels or plates hidden away. It would be nice to know. I cant find any reviews or similar vehicles with information.

Thanks for all your help and interest. I think your probably right on the maker and I will post details here if I come up with any more info.

Highwayman. I mean Highlander.

I was half right originally. There is both a Highlander and a Highwayman model of this Talbot Express. I happened by chance to see an old F Reg camper of the same type and there it was in bold print - Highwayman.

However, this doesn't get me off the hook as mine is most definately a Highlander. I copied a lot of stuff from the available manuals. Much of it is pretty mundane stuff but it might save someone some time if they are searching for particular information about this motor home.
