1975 • Bay Window Camper • Australian Import • £54,995

Wow, what a bus this is. It's present owner, Peter, came to us with a request to build him his dream camper. The brief was: "VW Down Under, build me a fast, head-turning camper!". So that’s exactly what we did. Between the team, Peter and Christenine (his lovely wife) we got our heads together and created a super cool bus to a very high specification. And the result turned out to be one of the best driving, cruising buses in the UK. When it was finished, we drove it for 500 miles, and in 17 years of restoring campers we have never driven a bus as good as this. If you’re dubious about our claim then we challenge you to go everywhere else for a test drive then come to us last, you won’t be disappointed. It comes with 12 months MOT and 12 months tax (it's actually tax exempt). It has 6 months full parts and labour warranty...and you’ll be the envy of all your friends of course.
