For sale, my 2010 T5.1 Transporter, 2.0TDi 140hp 6 speed, DVLA registered Camper, 82k, FSH, which I have owned for just over 2 years.
This is a regretful sale but due to lack of use and my job, which is me always being away, it doesn’t get used as much as it should. The van really is immaculate, the conversion is like new as it has hardly been used. (I’ve never used the hob!). I genuinely think you will struggle to find a van that looks as good as this one does, the pictures don’t do the van justice.
It has been professionally converted to its current spec by Base Campers. I have also done all the relevant paperwork for DVLA and so it is on the V5 as a Motorcaravan. This dramatically reduces your insurance and also allows you to drive at normal car speeds instead of those of vans. No expense has been spared on this van in my ownership, maybe paying over the odds for genuine items when I could have bought copies but I wanted it all to fit and look right and not wished afterwards I have just bought genuine items.
On buying the van just over two years ago I purchased a genuine new front sportline splitter and genuine sportline rear spoiler, which really do look good on these vans. The rear bumper had a small crack in it so i purchased a 2013 rear bumper which has the bigger reflectors, I also upgraded the rear lights to the newer looking sportline tinted lights. The wheels were also added at this time which 20″ Cades Bern which cost me £1200 which have the correct Nexen load rated tyres, the wheels are still immaculate with no curbing. On the outside I have also added a few other little bits including black sidebars as can be seen in the pictures and also the black bumper protector which was purchased again from VW. Team Heko wind deflectors on the front windows which are handy whilst camping as if its raining you can stop the steaming up by opening them and the rain won’t come in. Inside the van other than the conversion I haven’t touched,other than upgrading the stereo to a genuine VW RNS-510 stereo which has a 6.5″ high resolution LCD display, built in sat nav, dvd player, 30gb hard drive so you can store your music on there, cd player, SD memory card slot for MP3 music. The van has also had Towbar professionally fitted just prior to me buying the vehicle, which is all wired in with the canbus system.
Maintenance wise the van has full service history, the van was serviced in January this year and at the same time had the Cam belt and water pump was replaced. It also had a new starter motor fitted in February.
