1997 VW Autosleeper Trident T4 high roof 4 berth. £14,000 Immaculate for its year. Genuine low mileage just under 50,000 (bought by the previous couple to me, after one year he died and his widow could not be persuaded to sell it for ten years even though she could not drive it). Her mechanic nephew maintained it during that time servicing as necessary and keeping the MOTs up to date. I had the MOT done this June 2017 and it went straight through.
My camper is much loved and drives very well, but is only being sold very reluctantly because I have taken on a second dog, a large Romanian rescue so we all need more space.
Spec: It has onboard fresh water and waste water tanks, a 3 way fridge, kitchen sink and a four ring gas hob with grill. The passenger seat is a captain’s swivel chair. Double rock & roll bed – up & over pull out double bed overhead to suit children (I use that space as storage). There are blinds, insect blinds and curtains, heating (needs one small part fitted. Personally I have never been keen on using gas heaters in a confined space so am happy if ever to use a small fan heater if I was paying for electric hookup, but the camper is so cosy that I have never needed any extra heat.
I have put four new tyres on it, installed a multi directional roof TV aerial, with a special bracket to hang the TV on the back of the passenger seat, plus an extra plug socket wired in. It was Waxoyled thoroughly underneath. Recently I bought a new Cubo Breeze inflatable, driveaway awning 10 foot square which has not been used (only taken out of the box & erected to check I could do it on my own and it is indeed easy to put up). However I have not stayed away overnight the past few months expecting that the rescue dog might trash things, just used it on a daily basis. I also bought a couple of figure of 8 rails to attach the awning to the camper since it has a different track (J rail) to caravans etc. I had a new pair of rear curtains made since the originals had got mould spots; also to avoid having to pull all the front curtains round the front windscreen of the cab, I had a rail and new curtains put up behind the front seats.
I had it serviced and all the gas hoses were replaced. Repairs-wise: I had the nearside trim (just beneath the canopy rail) replaced which involved having a new shaped wooden trim made to go under the original outer trim. I had black vinyl put on the outside of the small offside rear window [because the original plastic was on the inside (bad design) & had all shrunk and wrinkled in the sun]. The rear wardrobe cupboard door had also suffered from effects of sun so I scraped off the wrinkled plastic and sanded it, then painted it with yacht varnish.
Leaving in: The camper comes with a very long mains lead, with adapter; a fire extinguisher; a non cassette loo which fits in the corner even when the bed is out, but it could also be discreetly put in the awning. I have a small separate oven which I am happy to part with, also the TV, and I will leave the original crockery that came with it as it is authentic to the van. I have all the manuals etc with it and all paperwork that I inherited.
