1988 VW Trident Autosleeper 4 Berth

Imagine if you could go back 36yrs and walk into a VW showroom to buy a new motor home with all the modern updates you need ready to drive away and use immediately!

Well look no further because this has to be one of the nicest VW T25 Auto-Sleepers around.

These top of the range Auto-Sleeper Tridents cost over £15,000 in 1988 when new.

This fantastic 2100cc water cooled petrol version gives an amazing 110bhp with its smooth 5 speed gearbox.

It was purchased back in 1991 when 3 years old by a doctor who kept this lovely VW in the family for 30 years.
We purchased in September 2021 and are the second owner from new.

This stunning VW has only covered 58,781 genuine miles from new which is fully backed by its MOT history. This vehicle had only done 1000 miles in the 15 years, prior to us purchasing it and was in dry storage off the road for most of them, hence it’s amazing condition throughout.

Original handbooks and V5 are all present

This motor home has had a full restoration but keeping its original characteristics and overall making it the perfect retro camper vehicle around.

The interior is stunning and the cab floor is like new with no corrosion whatsoever.
