Brand - Reference

Busch 46854 and 44960

Type

Two Tabbert caravans sold with Mercedes Benz W123 then two others sold alone.

Comments

On the first two, I mounted the stabilizers in the unfolded position (two versions of stabilizers are provided: folded or unfolded). That said, I’m not sure that these rather weak stabilizers were unfolded for transport, for which wooden wedges seem to have been more appropriate. This is the reason why I mounted the stabilizers in folded position on the second series, photographed on wedges.

The new version has small curtains on the windows, unfortunately silkscreened on the outside: were they laid for transport?

Modifications

Stabilizers and drawbar mounted.

History

According to the 2012 Busch catalogue, the caravan would date 1971. However, the given dates are sometimes fanciful. The model in photo dates 1980.

The model would be about the Comtesse 460 (beyond, the Comtesses have two axles). But none of the photos found correspond (position of windows, wheel arch, etc.). I rather think of the Exzellenz 520, though here the gas bottle cover does not match.
