fixed white leather double ottoman bed with memory foam mattress that lifts up sideways for loads of extra storage underneath.
seating in rear has been re-trimmed in black diamond stitch leather with black and white leather diamond stitch cushions and can be used as 2 small single beds for kids... or turned sideways to make a king size double bed,
all interior panels carpeted with megavanmats carpet,

Hi there

We're thinking of buying a VW Bluebird Auriga (on our way to look at one now actually!) and we found your post when we searched for a Bluebird camper conversion. We're thinking of converting either a Sprinter, Crafter or a bus, and trying to decide between them all! The Bus is more easily available for us at the same price, so we were wondering if you could shed any light on how the conversion went? The images in your post aren't loading, so we were wondering if you have a blog or Instagram or similar where we could have a look/read about how the conversion went? Or chat if possible? We are worried about stripping out all of the inside and how difficult this would be - we aren't sure what's behind those panels but we want to fully insulate the bus!

Thanks for taking the time to read :)

Hopefully the original poster will reply, but in the meantime, drop this into a Browser and you will see some of the missing photos, albeit not as fine a resolution:

Hi I know this is an older post , I am looking at buying one of these to convert , just wondering if you knew the final weight of this once converted? Do you reckon it was still under the 3.5T mark?
Also interested to know what price you sold it for ??
Kind regards
Kel
