One Couple’s Year-Long Adventure Touring South America in a Citroën H Van

This post was updated on May 10th, 2024

Citroën made their unique H Van between 1947 and 1981. This smaller delivery van has a unique front end nicknamed the “Pig Nose” in France along with corrugated body panels that were inspired by German Junkers aircraft from the 1930s.

I wanted to share with you this video made by a couple who spent one year in South America traveling and living in their Citroën H Van named “Hachille”.

I hope you like the awesome shots of nature and of a beautiful 40 year old vintage camper. They’ve got a lot of faith in that thing holding up!

I loved the editing and the fantastic nature scenes. South America has beautiful scenery and wildlife.

Citroën H vans are still quite popular in Europe. Here’s a couple of sites that sell H vans based in the UK:
