2011 Excellent 4x4 Overland Camper Conversion VW Caddy For Sale

2.0 TDI 16v 6 Speed high specification model in Deep Black Pearlescent with only 3 owners from new, Full Service History and no VAT to pay.

I bought this as a van and have spent much time and money turning it into my dream overland camper. I wanted it to be usable as a daily driver but it also has to be able to head off to far away places at the weekend, the rare and tough Haldex 4x4 system giving me more options as to where to go and helping me out of any sticky situations that might arise.

The specification includes Air Conditioning (just service and working great) remote central locking with alarm, Genuine high specification VW Bluetooth telephone system, Comprehensive trip computer with animated dial pack, ABS and switchable ESC stability and traction control, Power windows and mirrors, Cruise control, Daytime running lights, Intermittent wipers, Twin sliding side doors and half leather front seats.

Since I bought it I have added fully refurbished genuine VW group 17” 5 Spoke Alloy wheels which come with excellent High profile Mud and Snow tyres as well as various upgrades to the exterior lighting to make driving at night safer especially in remote areas. I have fitted a high quality LED dipped and main beam headlight kit to provide great visibility and a more modern, high specification look. I’ve also fitted high quality front fog lights (powered by LED’s also) and an ultra powerful main beam LED light bar custom mounted and hidden within the front bumper.

At the rear new genuine VW (not copies) latest model dark tint rear lights that are fully LED and suit the black tones of the body really well. To provide the finishing touches the VW badges are colour coded gloss black and new high quality metal front and rear number plates.

I have fitted a high quality premium sound system including a new double din VW style head unit including USB / iPod and Aux connections as well as full Apple CarPlay and google maps navigation function through your device. It sounds fantastic, helped by the extensive sound deadening and insulation measures that are included with the camper van conversion.

The conversion has been professional installed by Freedom Conversions who have extensive experience converting Caddy’s to this specification. It’s referred to as the stealth conversion as there is little to no external evidence that it is in fact a camper and not a panel van.

Both sliding side doors have been modified to incorporate privacy glass panels and integrated shades are also included. Core to the conversion is the high quality rock-and-roll double bed / twin rear seat that is finished in tough and durable yet comfortable black leather type material that is equally comfortable to sit or sleep on. The large high quality LG LED television is supported by a powerful satellite system and folds down when it use and provides excellent picture quality. The interior is beautifully insulated and carpeted and includes multiple 3 pin and USB sockets, LED downlighting, a leisure battery and a full ambient / mood lighting pack that can be changed to be a multitude of colours. Extensive storage is also included and the whole conversion has been exceptionally well thought out and executed and works really well.

The bodywork is in great condition and there is no corrosion anywhere. When I bought it I immediately got it onto a ramp to check its condition and was delighted to find zero corrosion or damage underneath, it had clearly been looked after and has never been off-road. To keep it in this condition I had it professionally cleaned and the treated and sealed with a genuine Waxoil session encompassing all box sections and panels including all doors and bonnet. At the same time I also had it fully serviced using Bosch filters and the correct Shell Helix fully synthetic oil and all key mechanical aspects checked. The cambelt is not due for replacement for a long time yet and there are no mechanical or other jobs that need doing, its runs great. It has done 129k miles which is about average for such a vehicle and it has worn these miles really well with minimal wear on things like the seats, gear knob or steering wheel. The engine is also very common as it is shared with the Audi A3, VW Golf, VW Passat, Skoda Octavia, Seat Leon, Audi A4 etc so spare parts are easy and cheap to get hold of.

As mentioned before it comes with Full Service History from new and a full 12 Months MOT. The cambelt has recently been renewed and there were no advisories for its last MOT. Everything works as it should we no noises, smoke, smells etc and it drives beautifully with no slack anywhere or wear on the interior components such as steering wheel or 4Motion-branded gear lever, even though it had done 124k miles (Its now on 131k and drives beautifully). Being the top of the range 16v engine option from new it pulls strongly and is very refined, helped by the extra sound deadening and Touran engine cover that helps reduce engine noise even further. The gearbox and clutch are also slick and easy to use and the overall suspension, bushes, tyres and brakes are also in great shape. It drives just like a MK7 Golf GTD in fact and enjoys long motorway cruises in complete comfort supported by the excellent cruise control and audio system. Because it is still fairly light it also handles remarkably well, being good fun to hustle down country roads when the mood takes you - try doing that in a high-sided van conversion!

It is fully HPI clear, averages an easy 50mpg of standard diesel and is much easier to drive day-to-day and park than the bigger, heavier, thirstier and slower T4, T5 or T6 Transporter based Camper vans. It also comes with the two original remote flip keys and an extensive set of bills and receipts for the work done.

I have loved building and using this camper, it has turned out better than I’d dared hope and it’s usable in a large variety of environments, also being helped by its raised ride height meaning better ground clearance. Being lower than more traditional van-based campers means it can also go on ferry’s / Euro Tunnel as a standard car and not a commercial vehicle and it also fits in low-rise car parks where head room can be an issue. Simply put you can take it anywhere a normal car can go for no additional cost.

Viewing is available in South Manchester and feel free to ask any questions. Thanks for looking.
