For Sale is a 1984 VW T25 1.9 Petrol.
This is a 'Devons Conversions Moonraker' with the unusual 'Aerospace' pop-top - Approximately 50 made with this roof.
The van has covered 41203 miles at time of listing (likely to increase every so slightly), Genuine mileage checking back through all MOT's and it adds up. Lots of paperwork from the previous owner, including a new engine around 2018, paper work for proof.
I have owned it since February 2021 and have carried out extensive body work and mechanical work to the vehicle to keep it in good running condition. I have driven around 5000 miles in it, including a summer along the south coast, and more recently 1 month trip around Scotland and it has always driven faultlessly and never failed on me.

This conversion comes equipped with a 3-way Fridge, which works very well, a 2 Hob burner, a hot plate and a grill. All working ok. This also has 240 mains hook up installed. The van is very modern looking inside, yet very retro looking on the outside.
The van can comfortably sleep 2 adults on the bed. It also has a pop top roof, which can comfortably sleep 2 more adults when up, or splits into 2 children sized beds either end of the roof.
I have a big folder of pictures of this van throughout repairs I have done.
Passed it last MOT in December with no advisories.
Very reliable and interesting looking van, perfect first camper and very confident it will take you anywhere and everywhere you want it to.
Reason for sale is I am hoping to get a slightly bigger van - not in any rush to sell this van, and really dont want to part with it so will NOT accept any silly offers.
