This rare motorhome (Tex) has full service history with an amazing documentation file. The camper has no rust issues or accident damage it has been really well looked after all of it’s life. He has wanted for nothing! In our ownership we have replaced the clutch, slave cylinder, brakes, cam belt, shocks the list goes on (full details below). We wanted it travel ready for our trip to Spain and France :). He has been trouble free during our ownership and we are confident it will be for a long time to come. If you have done your research you will know the Karmann build quality exceeds the UK built T4 auto-sleeper, Compass etc. The camper is in stunning condition for a 21 year old van and was valued at 24k in January by the Karmann owners club. We are selling as we have bought a vintage camper for trips around Cornwall.”
