Does anyone want my next Camper?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Just bought a T6 SWB on a 65 plate 47k miles. It will be built to a high standard and with quality components, Crash tested Bed, Double seat swivel base and Poptop roof, Dometic appliances, No MDF or Chipboard furniture, No cheap crap or cut corners £22500 + the Vodka. 

I can go as lairy or as mild as you want on the colour scheme, (Bright colours and glosses = more wow factor) 

Dont bother trying to get CAP guide on these things,  buyers are totally lead by their hearts, I've never chipped on the price of done vans or a conversion.  £29995 on a pitch at the start of summer is realistic

Absolutely no chance, Its a world of pain I'll avoid. 

 

I did look in to it, with the idea of leasing brand new vans, build over the winter, rent out over the summer then sell in September and pay off the finance. Before we even get in to renting to the general public the insurance is very costly, You need an emergency van spare just incase one gets trashed, short term leases dont give you the V5 so I couldnt change it to a camper on the logbook

Great quality conversion.

Our mechanic does four or five T4's a year (he doesn't trust the newer T5 & T6 stuff) and whilst they're good they're not up to your kind of standard...bit of a different price point though.

How do you find these for reliability? 

Do VW do a petrol engined Transporter yet?

Personally I've never had an issue, like any brand & model you will always have a the Friday afternoon ones that. Never done a TSI, VW have stopped doing them.

I really admire your work Mr C and everyone knows there is a big market for this stuff, brand new, recently converted and even old dogs.

For me, if I were paying that kind of money on a day van/light camper - I want a fixed bed, a shower and a toilet otherwise to me atleast, it is just glorified camping and still have to trek across a muddy field to relieve my alcohol infused middle aged bladder.

My mate is massively into this scene 

He has a £170k German built proper camper which is amazing - I get it. He can wild camp and need for nothing with 3 days worth of water and power, scooter in the garage to nip out for supplies if required.

He has an £85k very early 23 window bus which he loves - I don't get it. No toilet, no proper washing facilities, fold out bed, no head room, no power.

Each to their own I suppose.

That said - top quality work Mr C - wish I had your skills as it must be easier, sorry more rewarding than trying to polish a grand in to a generic used car.

MrC - have you ever thought about the Merc Sprinter Exec Mini Bus conversions on the 5T chassis ?
