Very reliable, good condition
low mileage, professionally converted.

2009 VW short wheel base T5 converted camper.

We purchased the base van (from the NHS) in 2012 and the experts at www.teahupoo.co.uk converted it to a four berth camper for us.

We have added less than 5000 miles a year over the last 9 years and the van has been serviced annually and well maintained.

67,500 miles, 4 berth

The van has just been serviced (Jan 12th 2022) and has a full year's MOT.

Details and photos can be seen below and any questions just drop me an email on andrew.craig@skoon.com.

The van came with stainless steel footplate bars (worth £200) running along each side which we prefer off, but they will be included with the van.

There is also a Thule bike rack (for two bikes), two new winter tyres and two good regular spare tyres, that will be included in the sale.

• Pop top is showing it's age and the canvas will probably need replacing in a few years time.

• We took advice to go for a basic base van (less to go wrong) but it means there is no air conditioning, no electric windows, no satellite navigation. Nothing we have missed living in the Hebrides, but bear in mind if planning to tour in hotter climates.

• Some minor surface rust bubbles all looked at by a body shop who advised an easy DIY job on generally unseen areas.

• Few scratches to the inside of the back window. Not visible from the outside (see image below).

• Small number of scuffs and wear and tear on seats, cupboards and floor.
