Default T5 Kombi lwb 174 sports conversion

I designed my van with kayaking and mountain biking in mind and to do a lot of wild camping however now with 3 toddlers in tow the van is being not used for what it was designed for and I need a velle!

The van is a 2004 (53 plate) factory Kombi with the 174 Engine.
It has electric windows, electric and heated mirrors, factory fitted cruise control, air-con (front only), driver/passenger airbag, remote locking, reversing sensors, Kenwood CD head unit with standard speakers in the front and jvc 6x9's in the rear.
All of the rear windows have a limo tint.

The seats are 2 captains in the front and quick release single and double in the rear. The double folds flat and forms part of the bed.
It is fully insulated and carpeted with a cushioned load liner throughout the van. The bed/decking was custom fabricated and is very strong but leaves the load space completely open for boats or bikes or whatever you want to shove under there.
The curtains are an imported fabric custom made (by my mum) on Gliss rails.

There is a 50l waeco compressor fridge with a smev slim line glass lid twin burner built into a real wood kitchen worktop.
I am using a 300watt inverter which is good enough for a laptop or charging batteries but the cables are good enough if you wanted to fit something more powerful.
The power is coming from an 110ah seal battery charged by a Sterling battery to battery charger which is a very good bit of kit. The Fridge will run off this all weekend without having to run the van. If you do go for a driver the charger comes into its own a charges the battery very quickly.
I have also fitted 3 touch sensitive powerful led lights which have been flush mounted into the head lining.

The van is lowered 50mm and has 18 inch wolfrace shark alloys which are load rated with load rated tyres.

Everything is colour coded and splitter and spolier added..
The exhaust is a custom made full stainless with the cat removed also fitted a k&n air filter.
The van has done 183k and has a full service history mostly vw. Tax and MOT till feb 2010.
I will get the van serviced before it is sold.
Please see my build thread in the t5 section to see how the van started
I am also going to include a 2009 kyham motordomer tourer awning with sleeper pod and groundsheet.
The private plate is probably more suited to a kayaker bit can be inculded in the sale if it is wanted.

I am looking for 12500 but I am open to offers.

I will be sad to see this one go, but i would rather see it being used rather than the two/three camping trips I only seem to fit in now.

I now have a blank (and rusty) canvas to play with again though

Great looking Van.

Would you be interested in selling the awning on its own. it would appear im in your neck of the woods

Good luck with the sale
