Description

This is actually cheaper than if you bought another one and had it converted to a full camper as the conversion costs about £3K.

I am presently out of the country, so f you want to send me your number through gumtree, then I will call you back ASAP. I have a person in the UK to show you the camper if you are interested. The phone number listed in this add is no longer valid.

good on petrol due to being serviced, like a european 2.1 or 2.2 fuel economy. American are twice as fuel effeceint as european engines for the same size. Therefore quite reasonable on fuel.
Full camper conversion with many extras, serviced, bodywork, upgrades and full MOT and service history.
.-converted camper conversion in last 5 years by professional people with mains, sink, tap, fridge, gas stove, heater and double fold out bed, closet,
awning, cupboards, and too many extras to mention.
-recently decorated, and camper conversion and upgrade within the last 5 years. 200 HP, automatic, double bed, full service history, 2 new seats, petrol, 2008 registered, excellent mechanical, MOT and serviced this year, new window switch and motor. IT has many mechanical jobs including power steering pump, suspension, alternator, new steer arms this year, tires and brakes, new shock absorbers before I owned it, new transmission seals and service, brakes adjusted this year, greased steer niples new platinum plugs, oil change with engine flush, fuel treatment and oil filter, rad fluid changed last year. The interior bed and counter was custom made from wood. Leather drivers seat and swivel passengers seat. It was converted by professional people so ok on factory only sites. Comes with features too many to list:offroad lights, sat nav, reverse camera, stereo with subwoofers, TV/entertainment and a heater(both with remote), side courtesy lights, curtains, blinds, flatscreen TV, sony playstation game console, new gas stove, microwave, toaster, kettle, tow bar, rear ski ladder, awning, mood lights, water tanks, spare mattress, shower tent, table, blankets, skylights,air vent, antenna, step, mains with certificate, 240v with 12v inverter. This van has beautifull wood panel, and interior velvet same as a usa limo, ready for a campsite. It can take a fiamma storage box on the rear ladder of the van. The camper conversion was built by professional people by hand. I hand picked the wood, which is why is looks for nice inside. Opening skylights and airvents complete the picture for a full-service camper with everything you could want on a campsite. Also, a Sony playstation, a vacuum built into rear door and water tanks.

The replacement cost is £10000 minimum,so it is a good deal. It would therefore cost 2 times the price of what I am asking to replace it. Mileage is 50000 miles on second engine (brandnew about 10 years ago). The mileage on the rest of the van is 125000, but it has had lots of newparts therefore it runs great without issues,we just take it in for service now and then and for upgrades.

Please note:The bodywork on this was extensive, and includes a full bodyrespray with Fiberglassing to the roof which is made of fiberglass. The van had an inner bodyrespray as well, which means that paint was applied to inside of doors-no rust.



Total bodywork is about £2500, had entire respray incuding fiberglass to the roof. An inner bodyrespray was done therefore no rust especially when looking inside doors. Window seals have been looked after when a bird flew into the side window. There is a skylight and airvent in the back.



The present price includes a redecoration, painted kitchen and door trim, an second thick mattress, and new appliances. If coming to collect, I need time to make sure everything else is tidy in it, and everything req'd is in it. There is also an extra driver's door if you want, which would be hard to carry.

Other servicing includes a new grill, painted front end, new lights at the front, and just had brake inspection, bulb socket lights, a tire rotation, and fluids topped up. Brakes are allright, no worries. Had new brake pads, and brake fluid.
It is in wonderfull condition, so please no people calling to offer opinions based on mileage and age, as this one is in great condition, unusual for its mileage and age not to mention extra equiptmnet, so valuations based on age and mileage and going to be wholly inaccuarte, so come and view it for yourself.

There is a service history and receipts for camper conversion for the 6 years I had this vehicle. These are rare to begin with, and has a one-off conversion and extras. so do not miss the oppportunity to buy one of these, cause if you have not realized by now, this is not just the best, but it is the only one its kind, so when it is gone, its gone, and chance to buy will be forever lost.
