From fire engine to RV!

A surplus emergency response vehicle which has logged thousands of miles attending fires and crashes across North Wales is being shipped out to Canada for a quiet retirement – as a campervan.

The 1995 plate Mercedes 1120 Incident Response Vehicle, previously owned by North Wales Fire and Rescue Service , was bought at an auction in Merthyr and is now being shipped across the Atlantic for new owner Ryan Evans from Oregon in the United States of America– who is planning to convert it into a family motorhome.

Ryan, a mechanical engineer, said: “We just pulled the trigger on the MB 1120 4x4 Incident Response Vehicle with the intention to turn it into a motorhome for an adventuring family.
