Sandy is your new best friend: whether you're a family or a couple, if you love the great outdoors, you'll love this young and sprightly Volkswagen Transporter.

Skillfully converted with beautifully handcrafted solid pine units and a gorgeous oak floor, she is packed from the floor to her high-top with functionality.

That includes 5 belted seats, a rock ‘n’ roll double bed and a neatly designed foldaway bed in the roof with space for a third adult or couple of children.

The twin front passenger seat can swivel round to face backward for when you are parked up and she’s got a gas hob, sink, fridge, table and plenty of storage.

Her powerful, responsive engine will take you to your destination swiftly and smoothly. But the best bit? She comes ready kitted out with everything you’ll need to just pull up, open the doors and run into the sea or onto the hills. Your next adventure is waiting for you!

There is an excess of between £500 and £1000 in the event of any damage to the vehicle.
