Full T5 Caravelle/multivan Interior!!!

Yep, a full interior from a T5 Caravelle Multivan (not the lesser Shuttle).

This consists of a rear three seater bench with 3 x 3 point inertia seat belts built into the actual seat so no modding on the pillars of yer Transporter required! The rear seat can tip back, a bit like a rock n roll bed, and make up into a proper bed. It also has three storage cubby spaces below.

Also, 2 x single rear captains seats, also with their own built in 3 point belts, and these are on swivel bases so can travel facing either way or just face rear for when parked up conferencing/eating/playing strip poker or whatever. These both also have little storage cubby spaces underneath.

And one of them lovely super smooth pop up cassette tables with swiss army knife like drinks holders and what have ya'.

All in a dark charcoal grey fabric.

No floor rails but this don't matter if you bolt them straight to the floor anyway (can recommend someone local who could do this) or the rails come up on German ebay all the time, often for under 100 quid anyway.

This really is super deluxe and blows away even the best T4 kit. Perfect to upgrade your T5 Transporter/Shuttle or convert your T4 (as a few members on here have done).

I was planning to do a T4 conversion or wait for a decent T5 panel to come along but just bought a complete T4 Multivan instead now so this set up gotta go!:(

2350 all in or best offer.:)

(can possibly split but prefer to get rid of together....email me with any Q's)

Ian,
If you do decide to split: I'd be interested in the single seats.

Yep, possibly happy to split guys.....in fact, if it don't go via the forum I'll might list it all seperately on ebay anyway.

I was thinking 700 for the chairs and 250 for the table.....IF I can get anyone interested for the rear bench/bed (least 1650 on it's own)*....tis all in mint nik.

I can bring any of these to Vanwest tomorrow (Sunday if I have confirmed orders....but NOT just for a look as these are flippin' heavy).

*Have since had one offer of 1900 for the rear seat alone.....guy hasn't turned up with the dosh yet though so if you want this or any single part of the kit, make me an offer...c'mon don't make me do all the work, bet none of you were shy when sorting a price on yer vans!

Flippin' eck nana' you is as indecicive as me when it comes to M'Van interiors!

Nope it ain't got the little bed extension bit. I don't know what these are from VW but I have seen them come up on ebay from time to time. I say one about a year ago go for 75 and though, 'oh I'll get that in case I ever get a T5 interior' but didn't bother....doh!


Lots of interest in this by the way peeps, so someone make it into hard cash as would love it to go to a forum bretheren lest the might fleabay becons!T:

No worries boys, the thread did state I'd rather sell the lot together, so think this hat being thrown in the ring is o.k

For the record though I ain't gonna go silly low on the price as I'll happily keep it tor a T28 project I have in mind for next year if need be.....(ooops, Surfwifey looking over shoulder: 'yes dear 'course I'm still selling it, new bathrooms are far more important than bus projects).:D

UPDATE....PLEASE READ(yeah go on...)

O.k.............a few genuine people interested in this lot or component parts and a lot of jokers...yes on this forum!!!

So for the record:R:

I will not deliver these seats.....especially for free....especially if it's half way across the country! You want them, you got to come and get them. You want to try negotiate delivery....it's gonna' cost....'you get owt for nowt' as our Northern Chapter might say!

I will not accept or a cheque....or a bank transfer after the seats have gone....For the record I did not come down with the last shower of rain!

I will not do a 'cash in hand' price whatever that is.....I am not a trader intent on dodging a bit of tax after all......it already IS a cash price!

I will not deal with forum members mates or relatives (especially any rude or demanding ones who I leave 4 voicemail messages for and then they ‘av a go and accuse me of ignoring them….and then try and offer me half price!).

I will not meet you at some dodgy service station. I will not pay 385 for YOUR courier.

From now on I will proceed with caution with any members who’ve literally just registered before making an offer (ebay ain’t stupid are they) especially if you don’t even know what the term T4 means. And I don’t know if this will fit in your ‘smiley-face’ Transit or your Ducatto race-van……your problem for driving such a crate!

I will not let you just come and have a look at it with no intention of buying 'cos you: "seen a rock n roll bed on ebay for 400 quid that seems better". This is not a cheap aftermarket Meccano set seat. To compare it to such is like truffle with turds! If you know what it is you know what its worth. If you don't, then you probably be on the wrong forum (try Citroen Saxo forum, Darwin awards or Chainsaw juggelers.com for kindred spirits on the old I.Q level)!

This is a genuine VW set up and as such is a heavy bugger so next time I get it out of storage and hoof it over for viewing...I want it to be for someone who at least knows what it is and actually intends to buy it. The seats are immaculate and exactly as described. If you don't know what it is then there is Google....I am not Google...if you click my buttons I won't find you images, porn sites and insurance quotes.....I might well however bite.

I also will not:
balance your tax books,
marry your sister,
hide them Pandas in my basement,
dig a basement to hide them Pandas,
write to the Ordinance Survey on your behalf asking them to mark all the good dogging/cottaging sites on their next map for you,
teach you how to not hold a pen in a fashion other than a fist grip, so you can write the letter yourself,
wash your van,
deliver that package to your mate Leroy,
pretend to be your mate Leroy if a man called big Ron phones up,
hold your beer,
tell you your 80' mullet still looks good,
swap my superior pickled onion Monster Munch for your inferior Ready Salted,
mow your lawn,
polish your letter box,
light yer’ fag,
pick up anything from the shop for you,
scratch your scratch card,
rob your rhubarb,
play leapfrog with that unicorn…or clip your toe nails.M:

T:T:T:T:

your not wrong about them being heavey buggers!!! i put mine on the scales and the rear seat was just short of 100 KG!

These are not somthing uncle Joe Bloggs makes in his shed.!
They are though rare as rocking horse poo.

FROM VW these are:
The captains seats are over 1200 EACH and you have to built them up from
parts

The rear seat is over 3000 like wise you have to build them up too.

then you have the table TBh i have never priced one of these up from Vw but they aint gonna be cheap.

if you went to Vw then you would not get much change out of 5500:eek: The prices i quotes are about 2 years old!! so like everything else i bet you can ad another 10 % to the above prices.:eek:

If i wanst 3/4 of the way through my van then these are the seats i would buy


AT 2350 these are a bargin just a shame i dont have 2350

Cheers mate, was sorry to see the evelle go but it went to a good and happy new home!

These T5 seats really are once in a blue moon and usually then from wrecked vehicles and then the frames can be compromised. This one came out of a newish bus that the guy had saved for years for (never married, lived with parents etc) and when his parents left him the house he then spent out for a full custom camper conversion but wanted a good base vehicle with all the luxury levels to start with. Natually the Caravelle was the only way to go but the interior had to be sacreficed as no good for his needs. Far as I know he sold the house and is still touring europe....but not in this one ironically, he traded it in day after I helped remove this one (yep, I've done all the donky work) for a LWB version!

It took me nearly 5 years to find this interior. A few bits and pieces come up but almost never a full set. I do happen to know of only one other that admittedly does have the rails but that one is over 3000

Got a decent sounding enq' now anyway so might be gone after tomorrow....so if you're gonna make ya move peeps don't sit on it (so to speak).;)

OK....by way of update then:

Yes, I have the whole lot available still. Got completely messed about last time, then was gonna keep it for another project, then decided too busy. So much as I love this kit it goota go now!:blg

Basically this is designed to slide up and down on rails that are installed in the floor of the T5. When these interiors do come up (about as often as a Solar eclipse) they usually don't have the floor rails with them quite simply becase they are a complete bitch to take out of the T5. You have to get the thing up in the air and remove the fuel tank and other gubbins to do this. I took this one out of the donor vehicle myself which the guy was just convering into a custom camper so he was reluctant to go to the hassle of removing the rails.

The good news however is that the rail systems are on German ebay all the time. I've seen them go for less than 150 euros and you can also get all the floor surrounds and proper carpet which don't need much modding to go in the T4. I can give you the translations etc for the German ebay search words. Most German ebayers are willing to sell to U.K buyers as well, even if this isn't listed in the ad'. You can use Google Translate or whatever to translate the entire Geman ebay page and then communicate (although a lot of German sellers speak English in my experience). You can also use really good German couriers like GLS, who have an english website and phone service and a brill' tracking service. Oddly, it is even cheaper to ship stuff over here from Germany than to use British couriers to deliver things within the U.K in my experieince too!

Now...as regards fitting the floor rails in a T4. I'm told this is an easier task than getting them out of a T5! I also know of people the right tools and good knowlede of bolting down safely over the chassis etc that have this as a DIY job. Obviously I am not going to advise either way but to be on the safe, side (as with any seat installation) I would recommend getting a pro' to do it if you're not certain you know what you're doing. M.A.D Workshops in north Bristol are the local experts when it comes to this and as I recall, they quoted me a really reasonable price when I was gonna stick these in my old Caravelle (good for peace of mind too).They have done other forum members T5 into T4 conversions before but I'm sure there are like experts in other parts of the country you could get hold of via the might of information on the forum.

If you don't want/need the rails, I've also known of these seats being in a fixed position to the T4 floor/chassis. I beleive this option would require some fabricating of some suitable brackets (again M.A.D or the like would be the people to speak to, unless you know exactly what you're doing with metalwork). The benefit of the rail system is that the seats and table are quick release then and they can all slide up and down the lenght of the van to be as far forward or back as you like (even the table).

Ther are a couple of examples on the forum of members who have fitted the T5 set up into a T4 which show just who right it looks.

This kit would have cost thousands new from VW and then you would only be able to buy it in component form, so would have to build it yourself. The price of this whole set up when compared to just a single Varioteck or RIB rear seat (neither of which compare to this amazing kit) is good by comparrison...and it really looks hardly used.

If you're up for the stuff, P.M me, if it's still here in next few days then I'm throwing it to the masses on ebay!

Cheers
