Reluctantly offered for sale, Daisy, a 1978 bay VW camper at £38900 ONO. Imported from Texas with perfect chassis (no welding ever) and has been converted to Right Hand Drive through restoration process.
A full nut and bolt restoration by VW expert professionals- a complete rebuilt from bare chassis and only 3000 miles since this extensive and carefully considered restoration.
We had originally intended to hire Daisy out as a bespoke, high spec camper (so her restoration process was very particular and included many safety and high spec extras) but due to family illness, she was only rented out five times hence low mileage following her restoration. She has just undergone some remedial professional paintwork to ensure she is in showroom condition following her three thousand mile jaunt. Daisy is tax and MOT exempt but for further assurance, she has just undergone a MOT and engine oil change and oil filter replacement.
She is offered for sale fully furnished and ready to roll - all equipment and furnishings on board (all bespoke designed for Daisy) including brand new Vango Idris 2 Inflatable Drive Away Awning,
her own breathable cover and GPS tracker system.
Everything about Daisy’s restoration has been carefully considered in order to retain the classic camper charm but have the reliability and safety of modern motor. As experienced campers ourselves, every step has been taken to ensure her onboard living is second to none and the experience of camper life is at its best.
