Usual high spec Autosleeper interior.

The engine and gearbox have been changed from the original during the life of the van.
We have used the van for multiple trips to Europe and the UK and it was well maintained and prepared for long trips.
The bodywork although not concourse is solid and presentable for a 35 year old van, it has had all the usual welding done over the decade I have owned it (All arches, steps, nearside sill and side panel) using VW original and klockerheim panels.
The Interior is mostly original. Some of the seats are showing wear but are serviceable.
It has also had new bearings, brakes(including calipers, cylinders, pads, disks etc all round), radiator and lots of other work done.
It has been further improved with:
Dual Fuel LPG conversion (Better fuel economy).
LiteSteer Electric power steering (Easy relaxing driving and parking).
