With a view to providing as much accurate information I can do, the bad points I’m aware of are;

Bodywork. It’s 15 year old ex builders van that’s never been near a body shop, so expect the usual selection of dings, stone chips, scratches etc. On top of this, I’ve managed to put a decent sized dent in the driver’s side long panel by way hitting concrete pillar when reversing out of a space. I’ve included a picture of it to show the extent. The sills and front arches were tidied up by me recently (taken back to bare metal, treated, sprayed), but are my no means perfect. The rears have a couple of small bubbles. The barn doors have seen better days, but I have sourced and will include a very good condition set of replacements that I’ve not got round to fitting (correct colour so should be straight swap)

Keys. At some point during it’s life a couple of lock barrels have been replaced. So the sliding door and driver’s door have a different key to the rest of the van. Not something that’s ever bothered me enough to change them but worth pointing out.
I’m basically looking to sell as a complete, ready to use Camper ideally for someone to stick some clothes in and head straight off. With this in mind I’ll include everything I have to go with the van – including a container of misc parts / spares etc, so I’m asking

£5500 including everything listed above
£5000 without the extra items listed above (i.e awning, bike rack and spare barn doors)

I’m based in Bristol and you’re more than welcome to come and view the van. No test drives without proof of insurance so please don’t ask or expect to just turn up and drive it. I’m around most evenings and weekends, or can do during the day with enough notice to drive the van to work.

It’s been 98% reliable in the time we’ve owned it, with only letting us down twice – glow plugs and starter motor, both of which have now been replaced. Just back from a 600 mile trip round Cornwall where it’s been great and only using 3/4 tank of fuel. We’ve done various long trips in the van – Switzerland, Germany, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Scotland, Skye etc and it’s going to be a shame to see it go. Hopefully the new owner will get the same level of use and enjoyment from it we have done.

If I don’t answer your call, please leave me a message or drop me a text and I’ll call you back as soon as I’m able.
