More InformationHere for sale is my 2011 plate LWB VW transporter T5.1. I have had this converted to cater for my outdoor sport pursuits, including a host of top quality additions. I also like my van to look good so I have made some subtle but stylish modifications to the exterior.
The van is perfectly suited to those looking for a day/weekender but this van also offers brilliant versatility for longer trips too. I wanted a van that would allow me to carry other people whilst also catering for my out door lifestyle, this van does this brilliantly and while I am reluctant to sell It, I would love some one else to enjoy it as I have done.
In terms of the specification of the van, this is detailed below:
6 speed manual
Bluetooth parrot system which syncs with your smart phone to make and receive calls as well as play your music through
Long wheel base (LWB)
The van benefits from a full service history; MOT until October 2020; cambelt and water pump replacement at 109,000 miles; new brake pads and disc all round at 109,000 miles; 4 excellent Pirelli P Zero tyres all with good tread remaining.
North shore conversions - fully lined, insulated and carpeted with a ply and Lino floor for hard wearing and carpeted headliner with strip lighting. Wiring in place behind the headliner to hook up a solar panel to trickle feed the leisure battery.
To the interior:
Webasto heating system with 7 day timer (great bit of kit allowing you to set the heating to come on, it also allows for air circulation which is good for warmer climates)
120amph leisure battery which powers all internal camping related services, such as lighting, heating etc. Note this charges when the engine is running and will not pull from the engine battery and flatten this leaving you stranded unable to start the vehicle.
Glass to both side panels with slide and lock windows on the sliding side door and opposite panel
RIB Altair full width/length rock and roll seat/bed with 3 seat belts (dimensions of the bed and additional pictures available on request)
Strip lighting to headlining panel with dimmer dial on main control panel
2 x USB charge points for phones and tablets etc
Digital battery charge and pull display (great for when you are parked up and you want to check on the battery health)
Folding front double bench seat - useful as an additional seat, a table or when you are parked up it allows you a good view through the front window
Curtains and tie backs to all rear windows (black out curtains are excellent)
12v socket to rear which I used for the fridge unit (see below)
To the exterior:
As mentioned I like the van to look good but not in your face, so I have made some small subtle but stylish modifications
New headlights - these have the sequential indicators and day time running lights, I had the Phillips bright white bulbs fitted as the stock VW light and bulbs were very poor. Excellent headlights which are rated so no issue with MOT.
Daylight running lights
Sportline front grille with VW black badge
Rear black VW badge
Black side bars
20” BBS 5 double spoke alloy wheels - immaculate not a mark on them (as mentioned above benefitting from Pirelli PZero tyres)
40mm Cobra lowering springs (both the wheels and the springs were changed as detailed to improve handling and ride quality. LWB vans are particularly wallowy to drive on the original springs but lowered by 40mm makes it a pleasure to drive)
I have some additional items that can be negotiated into a sale these include:
Roof bars x 4
Engel litre fridge (just awesome,)
4 x original steel wheels and tyres
Sport line front splitter (still in the box) primed but not painted
Barn door rear spoilers (still in the box) primed but not painted
The van is a cracker, I am only selling to release the money I have tied up in it. I have taken great pleasure in making it into a really usable vehicle and I have no doubt it will serve some one very well in the future. I am more than happy to discuss the van, send video walk around etc so please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Thanks for taking the time to read this advert.
