Volkswagen Camper 1996 (N) LWB T4 2.4D Caravelle in BMW Blue - £9,500 ono REDUCED DUE TO SLIGHT DAMAGE OVER SUMMER
It is registered on V5 as a motorhome, mileage 149000 and has a Thatcham Cat 1 Toad immobiliser and central locking.
The rear has a unique ‘U’ shaped bench seat arrangement, which seats six with ease around the removable table and provides a great area for relaxing with a beer/ glass of wine, or lying back with a good book. This area converts into a spacious double bed via easy to set up timber boards. The van has a quick-release M2 tested Scotseats rear facing additional passenger seat with integral three-point seatbelt that can be installed to rear of passenger bench seat (£500 worth of kit).
The engine is an excellent runner: cambelt has done around six thousand miles, new starter motor, glow plugs and battery (incl. 110 amp leisure), ball joints and replaced what were lowered springs with original set. The canopy is large and extremely rugged, providing additional shelter from rain (used in UK mostly).
Tow bar & electrics. Comes with two large gas bottles (one full, the other half – these will last you a couple of years even in frequent use).
Double hob and sink (electric water pump) combo, with fridge/ small freezer compartment, complete with plenty of internal storage cupboards and under-seating space. Internal touch operated LED roof lights and full hook-up electrics (cable supplied) and charging system with 12/ 24 volt plugs and USB slots.
There’s a Thule roof bar set and a set of five matching 18” alloys. This vehicle has had money spent on it and been regularly maintained, although having moved house three times recently I am struggling to find all the paperwork, but will provide all details/ paperwork I can lay my hands on and garage names and addresses where the work was done.
This was my first VW camper and I love it to bits, done trips of over 3000 miles without a hitch and had it laid up for a week in between with everything still running, fridge still cold on my return, but have decided to upgrade to a newer vehicle now there are three of us. I will truly miss the layout and if I were handier (or had more disposable income) I’d definitely get another LWB to convert myself in a similar fashion. Sadly, I’m not flush, there aren’t many around and I’m cack-handed! I’ve never seen any other LWBs with this configuration.
There are a number of ancillary bits of kit (electric kettle, 12 volt heaters, etc). The Olpro Cocoon Breeze inflatable and detachable tent/ awning (£650 RRP) that I will sell with the camper for £400 if wanted (used once).
