Volkswagen LT35 2.5TDI LWB
The van has a remarkably detailed service history and is in excellent condition for its age, there is no rot anywhere on the frame or chassis. The bus was operated by London Hire as a disabled minibus with a hydraulic lift. The service history pack that I received with the camper is 2cm thick detailing everything ever done to the van. The DVLA MOT history checker shows all MOTs and an average of 4000 miles driven per year.
I purchased the van on quirky campers in May 20, after a semi-professional conversion, to use as a base for climbing and paddle boarding and it’s been faultless! I purchased the van at 62,000 miles and have driven just under 10,000 in 18 months. Here is a list of maintenance/servicing that I’ve had done since the purchase:
62337 miles – Thorough mechanic inspection upon delivery, new vacuum pump and brake fluid, new oil and filter.
63486 miles – New cam belt and water pump as these had not been changed from new.
67429 miles – All glow plugs replaced due to poor cold weather starting.
68500 miles – 2 new front tyres and oil and filter replaced by VW in North Macedonia.
The van is registered as a ‘van with side windows’ as when I applied 6 months ago the DVLA did not think that the graphics were obvious enough that it was a camper. They were satisfied in all other respects and the associated letters will come with the service history should you wish to add further graphics and apply again. The van weighs in at 3080kg with driver and drinking water (not certified) and has an MOT until 11 May 22.
1 double bed 1.4m x 1.8m (4’6 x 6’0)
1 single bed 0.6m x 1.8m (2’0 x 6’0)
My wife and I have been all over the UK in all seasons and had an incredible time. In August this year I managed to secure 10 weeks off work, so we headed south through France, Italy and then Greece including several Greek islands. This once in a lifetime trip allowed us to enjoy the most magical scenery, culture and food and the off-grid nature of the van meant that we had the most fantastic sunsets and sunrises on deserted mountain tops, vineyards and island beaches. The van was truly superb and did not miss a beat during the whole 5500 mile trip.
However, I have now been sent to work in Cyprus and shipping the van is eye wateringly expensive, so we are sadly selling the van before flying off to our new lives. If you’re looking for a lovingly cared for van that has not previously been a tradesman’s workhorse this is the one. It is a fantastic camper.
