VW t5 camper van specification – 4 berth

VW T5 Camper vans are perfect for reliable and practical adventures. Our specially designed camper vans provide everything we can think of to make your journey great. After all, it’s not just about the destination… it’s how you get there!


Volkswagen Transporters drive and are treated like a car. Easy to park and manoeuvre, they are the preferred compact campervan of today. Don’t pay extra for ferries and road tolls, but do enjoy all the features you may find in larger motorhomes.

The newer VW T5 Campervans are very similar to the previously mentioned T4 Campers. Apart from both being modern. T5’s boast a newer sleeker design and an elevating pop up roof that offers another double bed or increased standing room. This brings this camper up to a 4 berth campervan.

We have outlined some of the main features of our campervans. If you would like to know anything else, please do not hesitate to contact us.
