PostSubject: The new addition (T25 devon camper)   Sun Jul 13, 2008 6:47 pm

Hi all,

So here we are, We bought this today, A T25 aircooled devon camper it does need a fair bit off TLC but i think it would make a good camper for me bec and the kids,
It has 2 engines wif it but both hav the bottom end gone so will hav to look into it and see wot i can salvage,
On the whole it is fairly solid and straight, jus a couple of bits of small welding needed but really aint a lot at all,
So hoping to start it soon as we can find a storage space and a trailor to trailor it back, and hav it all done for begining off next yr.

Here are some off the pics we took,

















And all for the price off.....................................................................................................................................................................................................................

300 lol! lol! lol!

looks good for that money, and its got two kids seats in the front lol! some parts can be a nightmare to get hold of for the early vans, vw had a major upgrade/overhaul about 1985 on these. bits look the same but just won't go on from later vans No

good work, but i would say looking at the colour of those footwells you need to pull the windscreen out and do a small repair to each corner of the scuttle panel. as the passenger side will be dripping on to the fuse box for sure sunny
