1978 Appreciating Original Westfalia Helsinki (LHD) For Sale
Following months of deliberation, the time has come to part with our much-loved VW campervan. We’ve had many great times in her, from impromptu weekend getaways to family holidays and surf trips both in the UK and Europe. In the 13 years we’ve owned her she’s been trouble free and well maintained.
The Westfalia Helsinki interior has a full width rock & roll bed allowing two adults to sleep comfortably. The roof elevates allowing you to standup, and also conceals another full width double bed, again suitable for two adults. There is an overhead locker, a wardrobe for hanging stuff and plenty of under seat storage. Contained within the two main units there is a cleverly hidden double ring hob, a sink with powered water supply and fridge in full working order, which will run on 240v electric, gas (for those remote locations, or the beach) and 12v when on the move.
A solid and well looked after original VW camper ready to go exploring in.
