 VW Karmann Distance Wide Coachbuilt Motorhome.

(Big brother of the VW Karmann Gypsy)

This is a top quality German conversion. The Base Vehicle is a J reg VW LT 31 Chassis Cab with a 2.4 litre 6 cylinder Turbo Diesel with 5 Speed manual gearbox. It has 11 months MOT.

The cab is fitted with comfortable captain seats. It has power steering, upgraded larger mirrors and a new cd player with aux output for you iPod. There is also a digital external temperature gauge and 2 sets of keys and alarm fobs.

Accommodation consists of:-

The U shaped lounge can easily seat 6 people and is fitted with 2 lap belts for travelling passengers. There is storage underneath some of the seats whilst the others contain the fresh water tank and the Truma hot water boiler below and anchor points for 2 more lap belts. There are three large opening windows with integral flyscreens and blinds. The removable table drops down to convert the lounge into a kingsized bed (the table can also be removed outside and at its lower height is great for kids to play at). There are power sockets and an aerial socket and tv shelf.  There is also a Kenwood 6-disc multi-changer to provide music for the speakers in the lounge.

The kitchen area has a two burner hob and a sink with mixer tap and an Electrolux 3 way (12v, 240v, Gas) fridge. There is a cupboard below the sink and 2 overhead cupboards. Opposite the kitchen is a large wardrobe with the Truma gas fire (connected to the blown air heating system).

The Bathroom has a Thetford cassette toilet with electric flush, a wash basin with pull out shower head tap. There is a mirrored cabinet and lower level cupboard and storage.

The large double overcab bed has fixed ladder access and a safety net for use when children are sleeping up there.

Other Details: The vehicle has a 240v hookup and is fitted with a charger and solar panel which automatically charges the leisure battery and starter battery. Gas is stored in an external locker.  There are large fresh water and waste water tanks with contents gauges.

Outside there is a large Fiama wind-out awning, a roof access ladder to an additional storage box.  The rear bumper extends, with a heavy duty frame that has been fitted to the chassis, to allow fitment of a motorcycle. There is also a stainless steel bicycle carrier on the back. On the front are additional spot lamps.

The motorhome is in excellent condition all round, everything works as it should and since we've owned it, we've always heated it through the winter. Comes complete with all the equipment manuals and two sets of keys and alarm system.

We have owned her for about two years and have had many great trips in her. We are reluctantly having to sell her due to and expanding family.

We’re located in central Scotland near both Prestwick and Glasgow airports and can come to collect you from here or a local train station if this helps.
