oh sure....but apart from that they are perfect.....

Earlier this year we were anchored next to a Wharram on the south coast of NSW. Really quite remarkable things but hardly mainstream. I kind of liken them to those old VW Kombis with the 6v electricals and split windscreens. Legendary , no doubt, but you'd have to be out of your tree to want one.

Nemier my friend, if you really have your heart set on a Wharram......you'll need to grow your hair, get some cut off denims, some tie dyed indian shirts, sandals, head bands and some decent weed.

Peace.
