Well, finally went out & got myself a camper.

After lookin at several bays i put me money into a solid, very original, early T25.

3 owners in 27 years, 3-4000 per year all its life (94K on the clock now) & a genuine vw replacement motor at 60k.

All the interiors there (if a little dated!), everything touchwood works.






2800 & i think (hope) a good buy for that kinda cash.

Any idea's for turning this little sweetie into a cool summer ride?

lets hear em!!
