VW T5 4Motion 4×4 aurora hunter Camper Van – NOW SOLD

 

 

The owner says,

 “I built my camper van primarily to chase the Northern Lights and have so far managed to see them twice in the UK so it’s completely met my goals. Although I hoped to see the lights in the UK, I actually built it for a trip to Norway so it is based on a T5 130 4Motion, an honest, fully serviced ex-Orange mobile van with air con and the electric pack, I’ve fitted loads of insulation and an Eberspacher D2 diesel heater, so it’s been equally competent at Aviemore for snowboarding or a hot summer in Newquay for surfing.”

Specification,

  • Cruise control retro-fitted, electric pack needed to enable that.
  • 19″ Land Rover Alloys as summer wheels and currently fitted with the original 17” steels with Winter tyres.
  • Colour coded bumpers, handles, mirrors
  • Parking sensors fitted
  • Reversing camera and 3.5″ rear view monitor in place of mirror
  • Rear view camera subsequently added as reversing camera wasn’t good enough for normal driving
  • Reimo two part pop-up roof with lift up bed
  • RIB Altair bed – expensive alternative to Rock n Roll bed but I was always told don’t skimp on your shoes and bed.
  • Rear quarter windows added (although offside wasn’t actually cutout), offside centre window replaced with opening unit
  • Brand new Eberspacher D2 heater kit fitted under drivers seat
  • Polyfloor vinyl – believed to be much tougher than normal vinyl
  • Insulation, wiring and carpeting completed by Camperversion of Darwen
  • Electrics also provided by Camperversions, voltmeter on main/leisure battery added to distribution box
  • Camperversions also built custom unit with Smev cooker/sink, oven/grill and Waeco compressor/fridge.
  • Black and brushed aluminium custom furniture with under sink drawers and cupboards and Tambour door
  • B&Q decking lights in two rows for mood lighting
  • High power LED clusters over sink/cooker and entry step
  • Eyeball lights above the rear seat
  • CB Radio in overhead console
  • Kogan 19″ LED TV on custom TV mount
  • Eberspacher mini-wash fitted to give 10l hot water

This is a 2008 go-anywhere campervan, currently at 127k miles, but ready to go and will come with a full 12 months MOT certificate, it cost me over £23k to build, two years ago, only selling because I’ve started sailing.

Morocco Overland Episode 7 – Atlantic

After a good few weeks driving across mountains, deserts and gorges we finally hit the coast. It was the first time since we left Spain that we saw huge numbers of Europeans. lots were in huge motorhomes and camper vans and has a less well traveled look about them. We soon left them behind when we drove along the coast off road across the Sous-Massa National Park and we were alone again. It was Jed’s 40th when we were caught up in a flash flood at the surf town of Taghazout and spent time recovering the crazy Swiss. The recovery kit we stock was put to good use once again and we helped recover stuck vehicles that were directly in the path of the flash flood. With a second wave expected due to the weather forecast it got us thinking how many people do go away without even a simple tow strap or recovery kit like the ones we sell on our web shop. We seriously recommend carrying one now, even just for weekend camping as you simply never know.

All along the coast was a pretty relaxing time with lots of wild camping cooking on the Bushpig, sand driving and good times. Get comfortable and check out part 7. The Atlantic,
