/ Any VW T4 owners? Advice please for potential buyer
As a newbie to vans is this a fair price? Also any general advice? Apparently the cam belt needs to be changed periodically but acting else I need to look out for?
Thanks in advance
Be well aware of rust, pillars behind the doors and around the windscreen. If evidence of rust then walkaway.
You could also get a much better van than a 120,000 mile T4 for 4K, I had one with 110K and spent every other weekend tinkering to get stuff working on it.
Thanks guys for all your advice. I see your point Rob but if I had to install insulation and bed that will probably take the lifetime of the van so I probably will end up paying someone to do it....
By the way, I'm not planning on having sinks etc. just want something basic
Seems a bit steep to me. Transporters hold value relative to Fords for sure. However a friend of mine has just bought a 2003 ex RAC transit with full history, water tank & electric pump, leisure battery and lighting for £1400. He'll install a simple sleeping set up for not much money and even if he only gets a few years out of it its a lot of bang for his buck. I like VW, they're good, but not that good. I would have thought around 2.5 - 3k for the one you describe.
Best of luck.
Depending on condition it's around the going rate, certainly down here as the surf dude love them.
Campbeltown change is very important ESP on the 2.5l engine, bit of a ball ache to do, so it's often missed out.
Cam belt! Damn auto correct!
We have a T4 1998 SWB that only had 38000 on the clock when we bought it two years ago for around 3k..... It didn't have a bed in it, we did that ourselves as well as having units made etc.
They are great for campers, and it you want to get units made then you couldn't do any better than t4life (google it). Top bloke who does a great job!
Still works fine. 155k miles, never broken down. I do have it properly serviced and expect the only thing to stop it going for ever would be rust.
