For reluctant sale due to house renovations is my VW T5.1 transporter 140bhp 6 speed.
It started life as a panel and is still shown as such on the logbook, i have only recently (this winter) converted it in a caravelle style day van. but now i need the funds and also don't want to turn this into a builders van as its in such good condition.

I've had 3 transporters now (1 x Camper, 1 x Kombi) and this is the best solution as far as i'm concerned.
seats 5 all on proper crash tested VW seats with seat belts. The rear seat slides forwards and back very easily to provide a huge load space or a great day van space, it then folds flat and can be used with the rear shelf as a large double bed (you can buy the genuine parcel shelf for about £400) but all this needs is a 3" mattress topper rolled out and you are set for the night!!
The rear seat also lifts out (needs two people as its quite heavy), but it only takes 5 minutes and you have a completely empty van (and no nice seats to damage) if you want to move something a bit bigger around.
