Vehicle Description

VW Crafter, Manual (5 gear), 2.0 Diesel, CR35, Long Wheel Base, High roof, Trendline model, first registered in July 2020.
Still under warranty, low mileage, no MOT needed as yet, and perfect body condition. It drives like an absolute dream and has all the advantages of a being a new model like parking sensors, Apple Car Play etc plus Air con. Being the upgraded Trendline model means that the rear barn doors open fully back against the side of the van (270′ hinges) for those increased scenic views!
One owner as a Campervan and previously only one owner as a Jaguar dealership delivery van prior to the professional conversion to a Camper van, carried out in April 2021 by the Bristol Camper Company.

Fridge, solar panel, sink with electric water pump, awning, diesel heater, full size king bed….all your creature comforts are here!

The beauty of this van is not only that it’s so NEW (both in the model/age of the van itself and in the conversion) but ALSO the comfort and volume of the internal SPACE-allowing for full standing up inside (if you’re up to 190cm), the king size bed; the huge amount of storage space and enough length to house those surf boards!!

The professional Conversion, (only one year old and barely used), includes full insulation, and interior covering/marine ply flooring; full electrical installation (with a solar panel mounted on the roof, leisure battery, double chargers, several 240v and 12v and USB sockets, 2 circuits of LED lighting including 8 ceiling spots on dimmer switch), the brand new 50L fridge, 2 ring gas hob, brand new stainless steel sink and brand new diesel heater etc; also all windows (one sliding open), plus opening skylight (complete with both fly screen and black out blinds) and Fiamma wind-out awning. I’ve never had to hook up to mains electrics (even over a 2 week trip to Scotland) though the hook-up point and electrical cable are included in case you want to (and in order to use the 2 x 240v sockets). There are plenty of USB charging points and also interior LCD control panels to see the ‘status’ of the batteries and control the diesel heater.

The Birch plywood interior is beautiful and there is absolutely LOADS of storage space with two large kitchen units, two full length benches, two large cupboards, and a raised floor (both under the kitchen units AND in the rear 50% of the van providing ample underfloor space) as well as the FULL KING-SIZE bed. There is a brand new Thetford Porta Potty (housed in its own birch cupboard). For cooking there is the 50L fridge, the double gas hob (connecting to a standard camping gaz cylinder), and the brand new sink with electric water pump. The foam cushions were custom cut out of high density top quality foam (which is very comfortable and also will last for years without sagging or degrading) and covered in dark grey cotton canvas.

The van is fully functional and ready to go with everything you need in working order. It has custom-made dark grey black out curtains throughout, waiting to be hung, but has been deliberately left for someone to put their own final few personal finishing flourishes. For example you could change the curtains to your own choice of fabric and the floor has been left as marine ply wood for you to choose your own flooring and likewise the beautiful birch plywood surfaces have been left in a ‘natural’ finish but they could be painted or have a laminate or tiled finish added (particularly the kitchen counters).

Beds Description

HUGE Full king size bed-the entire interior width of the van! (180cm wide-so you can sleep either way around).
The bed gets converted from the two full length birth ply wood bench units, so that you have the option of two long ‘sofas’ to sit on or you simply flip over the hinged central panel and the full width of the van becomes the enormous bed! These units also act as large storage cupboards, accessed both from the inside lengths and also from further cupboard doors at the rear too, so you can get to your stuff both when you’re inside and when you’re standing at the rear with the barn doors open.
