Fitted with the 2.5tdi Diesel engine and the 5 speed manual gearbox this camper is no slouch cruising happily at 70mph and returning 40mpg with a careful driver. An easy 700 miles from a full tank too.
Electric windows and cruise control are a rare bonus, and as one of the last T4’s built it has the more modern “long nose” front end while retaining the “retro cool”.
These vans are now becoming very popular with the VW crowd and could well increase in value in years to come.
The service history is very good, a full set of stamps in the service book and just had another service with receipt.
The bodywork is in very good condition for year but has a few small dents (please see pics)
The current MOT is until September but I will put a new MOT on for the buyer.
Bluebell lives in Shropshire 5 minutes from junction 7 M54.
The base vehicle for Bluebell is a very good condition VW T4, having the tailgate, alloys, cruise control, very low mileage for year and a cool blue colour (not white!) it was perfect for a camper conversion.
Fully insulated including the floor, the walls were cladded with tongue and groove and painted, distressed and then varnished.
The bed was made then units hand built including upcycled Pallet wood and left over cladding.
A dometic CRE50 compressor fridge, and a dometic hob/sink combo unit with removable drainer fitted.
The electrics are powered by an AGM leisure battery with charging by a split charger from the engine and a 200w solar panel.
There are 4 USB sockets powered by the 12v system plus a “cigarette lighter” style socket.
The interior lighting is LED and has a dimmer for cosy nights.
There is 240v hook up for when you’re on a site with electric which powers a double 3 pin socket with USB’s and there is another 3pin socket by the battery if you wish to fit a 240v battery charger too.
There is a nice sized removable timber table which doubles as part of the bed base.
There are good sized drawers and cupboards, plus below the bed there is a storage cupboard with a chemical toilet.
There is also a new tow bar.
She was built in 2020 and is currently on the V5 as a panel van but I will fill in the form to change this for the new owner.
Overall Bluebell is a great well designed go anywhere off grid camper that’s happy in town (fits in most multi story car parks) loves winding country roads, and also a subtle stealth camper.
VW Transporter T4 SWB
The bed is a side sofa set up which could be used as a single bed, the table and another board are added to make a small double 180cm x 110cm.
