This picture demonstrates why I am going to have to get rid of my campervan. When they built the houses in our road they did so with minimal parking at the front and access to the parking spaces behind via this little tunnel under an ornamental roof. Sadly the van is too high by a matter of six inches or so. I can’t park it on the road in the long run because the residents of the other road where I need to park hate me and my campervanning ways and write me notes saying that my sort is not welcome.
In case anyone here wants a campervan it is a 1987 Type 25/Type 3 VW Transporter, 1.6 turbo diesel. It sleeps 4 – 2 on the main fold down bed and 2 more in the high top roof. It has a sink (tap doesn’t work but I think that’s just a fuse) and 2 gas rings. It goes well and is very economical. It had a new MOT in July. The inside is very nicely fitted out with carpet on the ceilings and everything. The main thing wrong with it is the rust, which though cosmetic rather than structural is fairly significant. I’ll tidy it up before I sell it, but it will still decrease the value quite a bit. I don’t have a price yet, before you ask. On this page similar VWs are mostly going for £4500-6500, but the bodywork on mine will mean the bidding is likely to start at less than that.
