Here it is then, the new Jimbo Wagon …

Never one to do things by half, the only reason we have not got one before now is because of the Forum … well I couldn’t really turn up to an event in a Fiat Ducato now could I LOL:

So, when we found this with a T4 chassis, it just had to be done.

9ft Tall, 22ft Long and 7ft 2'' wide

Its a VW T4 Explorer Navigator 360e



So, the good news is it’s a 1999 Long Nose T4 Cab, even better is the motor has only done 16k from new !!!
Not so good news is, it’s the 2.4 (non Turbo) so cruising all the way with the lorries LOL

Still, as it happens, I know the whereabouts of a really sorted 2.5TDi Motor, which I have been driving since new … this would then free up my Black Van as a bit of a “Project”

Anyway, first things first, going to use it for the Sumer and see how we get on.

This is as standard as its ever going to look … as the old saying goes – Watch this space.

First sleep out in it was Sat night – Kids luved it.



Talking of Penny’s as I know some people will – The value of My Black T4 and this big old Bus combined is still about £10k less than a T5 Calli !!!

So there you go, Its Big, Its White and and its got literally everything and the kitchen sink in there – So watch out for it at a show near you.

Team Jimbo





UPDATE TO THIS POST - to save people wading through 30 pages of posts, this is where we are 6 years later

Re: Here it is then, the new Jimbo Wagon …

Why is there picture on the walls in the same material as the seats:confused:
LOL: Eeeer Yes, its a bit Floral for my liking, but give it time - I know a very good upholsteror :D

As for Pictures (Pads) on the Wall, I don't think you will be too surprised to find these will be replaced with a couple of LCD's :D

Nice one Jimbo

Showed my Dad this (I'm trying to convince my parents to get a motorhome) and he asked what the Gross Vehicle Weight is (for medical reasons his license only allows him to drive up to 3500kg)
