first purchase

Evening, after finally deciding to get a T4 I am starting to have a look at what I can get. Will be making the purchase in the next couple of months and will have about 2000 - 2500 to spend max on the van itself.

I will be converting it myself, so the 2 - 2.5k is just for the van itself.

What should I expect to get for that?

In terms of age, mileage, condition etc. I have been having a look around but prices seem to vary so much and I see older vans for more than newer ones.

Thanks in advance.

pretty much as i bought it apart from the clear indicators and the windows it was a full panel van but you get the rough idea

cheers bazza, i guess thats about what i was expecting.

Seen a few newer ones for about the same amount, but not quite as good condition.

Are you putting a camping interior in?
