I've attached a picture of the van 👍It is a lot of money ...(but i havent seen the van ).
It sounds like someone has shown it a lot of love and spent a few quid .
Mileage is very good.
Personally the age of the vehicle would put me off buying a t4 for that kinda money and building something individual to youself is much more appealing.
But whether this van youve seen is 'worth' its asking price is anyones guess .
Looking at previous mot's, there is not even a mention of surface rust, as far as I can go back. I'm going to view it sometime next week cause its having "cambelt, etc" done.That looks really cool mate. He has probably spent best part of 8k, paint job and camper fit out. Its a lot of money and I'd want underneath it 1st, these things rust, trust me on that!
I'd need to know everything was spot in mate.
hummmmmm.....its had a full respray and been kitted out brand new with all the proper units (sink, hob, fridge) new rock and roll bed, leds in ceiling, new carpet ect.

rust........Anything other than rust underneath to look out for?
Spot on, thanks for the reply. I am going to view it this week, will get a few photos of around the van and post on here to see what people think, he says he has photos of it stripped back to bare bones to be repainted, so will ask for them. Any way of telling if its been painted over and filled?hummmmmm.....
the cynic in me wonders whats hidden behind the paint (remember t4's rust....)
also, as its " been kitted out" you cannot inspect the interior frame / floors inner wheelarches etc.
consider this, would you pay 2k for filler & paint OR would you pay 'xyz£' PLUS 2k for filler & paint if trying to maxiise profit on a 'van'
obviously I'm going to be wrong & it's an honest clean van....

look on ebay / jk etc. at the different 'repair' panels available
as an aside, if you buy this van & in a few years it needs welding, consider the work involved if the interior needs to be removed (as extra hours ££ labour) on top of the bill...
and, those t5 styled sliding middle windows can 'whistle' / leak (as aftermarket quality, hell, even genuine vw items do this & they should be high quality )
Rich.(have welded a few t4's...................................)
Putting doubts in my head now😵. He said it was all panels removed and painted. Sorry if it seems your going in circles. I'll see if he has any photos of the shell before it was resprayed. Thanks for all the info, hopefully a solid van 🤞if this helps...
my '95 t4 was 'clean'
after poking at some lumps that I disliked in the seamsealer (vw genuine) on the rear loadspace floor, I eventually welded 21 patches in place of rust that I'd cut out
If I'd known this before I'd welded the 5th or 6th patch I'd have welded in a whole new floor (oddly enough it's 8'x4' so a standard steel sheet will sort it)
a lot of rear floor rot is hard to see from the mot testers 'ramp'...
remember, testers can only test what they can see...
age means nothing, 2003 vans also rot but my 'favourite' years as doomers are 1996-1998 as for some reason they can disolve
I'm cynical because I've seen these issues
Looking to buy this 😶, I'm not the one selling 🤣Thats a tidy looking T4, probs worth the £11k just for the parts and paint. Like other have said as long as its not hiding anything sinister.
I gave up trying to guess what transporters are worth, i think there worth what someone is prepared to pay. Some T4 nut might snap your hand off for this even at £11k which could get you a pretty good T5 base van.
A magnet doesn't stick to filler.Spot on, thanks for the reply.
