If you are looking at this advert you most likely know these vans are highly regarded and could be considered the ultimate factory converted VW T4. A fantastic 4 berth camper van to enjoy a holiday in one week and then drive to work the following week. As a family we have enjoyed many weekends away as well as day trips off.

Some of the vans features are,
Pop up roof.
Double glazed windows in the rear.
Erberspacher night heater and engine heater.
Fridge with freeze function and basket.
Double burner hob.
On board fresh and grey waste water tanks.
Sink and electric tap.
Lockable safe.
Safety net for pop top bed to stop children rolling out.
Factory 3 bike rack.
12v interior electrics via a split charge system controlled from a central digital panel.
Masses of storage space, wardrobe, overhead locker, under rear seat storage etc.
The rear seat folds down into a bed but also slides up and down the van to be able to carry passengers or larger loads in various positions. The seat bed can also be fully removed to transport a large item if needs be.

The factory conversion is based on a very well spec van which has
Electric windows
Electric mirrors
Central locking
Power steering
Heated captains
Leather wheel and gear knob
Cruise control
Air conditioning
Lit sun visors
Lockable drivers door storage locker, etc etc.

I have owned this van for 12 months, prior to this my parents owned it for 6 years. It was my ultimate T4 and I had no plans to ever sell until a friend messaged me last week giving me 1st refusal on his van, one I have wanted for some time.
The decision to sell has not been taken lightly, as you will see by reading the list of maintenance/upgrades below i had no intention of selling this van, if i had i would not have invested the amount of time and money over the last 12 months to get it how i want it to then sell on but the decision is made and a deposit paid on my friends van so it has to go.

I'm sure i have missed things but feel free to message me to ask any questions.

The van is old and does have a few marks here and there but as you can see in the photos nothing major that detracts from the overall appearance.
I helped my parents search long and hard to find this van, viewing many sub standard examples. People comment on the van wherever i go.
The good low mileage freestyles are going up in value, check the prices on mobile.de etc. and they are minus the 6k+ of extras this van has.
I have an agreed value of 23k from the insurance company but this was in standard form before all of the above work was carried out.

This van is an investment and if maintained will only increase in value.
