Forsale is my project camper van.
2017 (66 plate) Black VW Transporter, Highline. 2.0 TDI 150 BHP 7 speed DSG.
81k miles. Full VW Service history with cambelt in the last 6 months and dual mass flywheel at 81k miles. Barn door. All the Standard Highline features, Electric heated windscreen, Aircon, Leather MFSW, MFD, Power fold heated wing mirrors, Auto wipers, Auto Lights etc etc.
Body work is in pretty good condition. There is a small dent and scratch on the bumper and rear door, and a few chips etc. I have tried to get this sorted but the body shop I used has closed due to covid. So happy to reduce the van by the quote cost.
Van has been self converted to a high standard. I have some progress pictures of the works completed. I won’t lie the Conversion isn’t complete, there are still some works to do which I will cover in the below.
List of works:
lowered on pro sport coil overs. Adjustable down to 80mm lower.
18inch Matt black steels. With Vw hub caps. These are 2 months old.
I also have a set of 20inch calibre Altus chrome and gloss black alloys which I will Chuck in if I get the right price for the van. They need a refurb and new tyres.
Tow bar with electrics.
Rear barn doors spoiler (could do with a respray as it is black but not the same shade as the van)
Transporter HQ V3 headlights. fitted in the last month. With sequential indicators and full bulb upgrade. (Led dipped beam, and night breaker high beam)
Fully sound deadened with dodo mat. Complete floor front to back, ceiling, walls, doors. There is not a panel not covered in the stuff. (Apart from behind the headlining in the cab. I haven’t got round to that yet and the 2 back doors which are still untouched, I do have the sound deadening material to do this)
On top of the dodo mat on the floor and ceilings is a layer of 10mm sticky back foam insulation.
In all of the open cavities is dodo thermo fleece recycled plastic insulation. Which stops any condensation from rusting the van.
The van is then ply lined with black 3 way stretch carpet over the top.
Black Altro hard wearing Vinyl floor.
Llanelywy campers auto glide M1 crash tested rock and roll bed with certificate. Could do with a wet vac/ re-upholster.
4 windows currently installed on both sides, all standard VW with one sliding window in drivers side. With a clip in vent from CSI Parts.
I have the 2 barn door windows. These are from camper glass, they just need fitting.
Full 12v and 240v electrical system. This has a 240v hook up with numerous sockets. Ring 30A DCDC charger. 240v battery charger. 100A deep cycle leisure battery. 150w solar panel. Numerous 12v sockets. Battery, 240v charger, 240v RCD and 12v fuse box is under the drivers seat. DCDC charger is in one of the cupboards. Will come with a 25m hook up lead and real also.
12v top loading compressor fridge, with LG Compressor. Which has been built into the kitchen work top. This has a lift up flap to access the fridge, similar to the VW California’s. the fridge is extremely efficient. Can also be used as a freezer and can reach frozen temperatures in less than 30 minutes.
12v diesel heater. Not going to lie it’s the cheap £150 Chinese one. However never had an issue. Works a treat. It is 5kw so gets gets very toasty in there.
Sink and hob are currently not installed. I do have a sink as I was going for a more modern separate sink and hob set up. The sink I have will come with the van, however this opens you up to the option of any set up you want. Smev etc.
Colour changing LED light strip. Along one side of the van. I have more to put in, but if I do not get round to this The kits will come with the van.
The cupboards are bespoke handmade by a friend who is an amazing bespoke cabinet maker. They are made from lacquered light weight ply. With an oak veneer ply wood top. My plan was to paint the fronts and keep the ply face in the cupboard carcasses. But again this can now be painted, or not to your liking. Cupboards are also not quite finished. I have a black tambour door that needs fitting, and I was planning to install fly over shelves and storage under the rock and roll bed also. Please see his website to see the quality of his work. https://summitccltd.co.uk
There is also a Kiravans, sliding door store, which I have carpeted the front of. (Not the shelves)
There is a wheel arch water tank, situated inside the cupboards.
In the front of the cab we have:
Alpine halo head unit. With apple car play etc.
Vibe component door speakers with separate tweeters.
Vibe micro 4 channel Amp in the dash. Which powers the front speakers and there are 2 wires routed to the back of the van for future rear speakers. The front door speakers have also been rewired with larger grade speakers wire.
Front doors have been sound deadened.
Under the passenger seat is a JBl 10inch sub and vibe micro subwoofer amp. Sounds quality is awesome in this van, with great bass response.
The door cards have been fully painted black, the pockets have been carpet lined and there is a led ambient light in each pocket and each door Handel (4 per door all together)
Led foot well lighting.
There is 2 single captain passenger seats. These have rotatable bases and come from a VW Sharan. The could do with a recover, or some seat covers on them. (I have now purchased some high quality leatherette fitted seat covers)
I have also added wiring for all steps to have lighting (I have not fitted the lights yet, but I do have these)
There is also puddle lights on the bottom of the door cards and bottom of the wing mirrors to fully light up the ground when you unlock the vehicle or open the doors.
Black out Curtains all round including a clip in place curtain for the cab. (Barn doors not fitted yet due to lack of windows but I do have these)
I have a steel and stitches canopy awning also. Which is super fast to set up and is handy for rainy days.
I think this is about everything I think. Any materials I have left for the conversion (carpet, windows, electrics etc etc) will all come with the van. This is perfect for anybody that wants a little bit of a lock down , winter project, and wants to put their own spin on the vehicle as all the main work has been done and it is fully usable, but who doesn’t want to have to do a full conversion. I have spent 2 full weeks and 2 weekends camping in the van this year. (The cupboards were only installed for my last trip so these have had very little use)
The sale is extremely reluctant as I promised I would never get rid. But there is a genuine reason forsale. Looking at the cost of a panel van, this age, mileage, dsg etc. You are looking at circa 20-25k currently. So the money and time that has gone into this, even thought it isn’t finished has got to be nearly the 25k mark. For you to finish the conversion and then likely sell it for 35k Plus! But open to offers as I know the prices at the moment are sky high due to demand.
Any interest or questions do not hesitate to contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org – 07447647031 (Drop me a text or leave me a call if I do no answer) The van will come with the remainder of a VW service plan. Which if I’m correct has one minor and one major service left. And the next MOT for free. I have also looked into used vehicles warranties and I will include a RAC 1 year warranty which covers all major components.
