TILLY – VW T4 1994 – (Open to offers)


I have been the proud owners of Tilly the Volkswagen T4 for the last 12 months, and have absolutely loved going on adventured with her, but due to changes in circumstances have to sell her. She was fully converted into the lovely camper that she is two owners ago and has been well looked after since.

About the Vehicle:

Tilly is a 1.9D Volkswagen T4 and an 800 Special model built in 1994 and owned by a gardener for most of her young life! She has 231,500 miles on the clock. In the last year, she has mainly been used for adventuring, with trips to Scotland, Wales and the Peak District – In total, a distance of 6,500 miles, all without any issues. She is fantastic to drive and is deserving of many more adventures.

She was Serviced and MOT’d in March 2022 and had her fluids changed, engine flushed, bulb replaced, new oil filter, brakes and hand brakes readjusted and wheelarch spot repaired. (Notes from previous owner).

Her bodywork is in good condition, however, as expected with a van of her age does have some scratches and dents that would be easy to fix should you wish. A fresh coat of paint wouldn’t go amiss, though there is no urgency.

Lots of receipts and service history are available. She is fully MOT’d till April 2024.

Tilly is registered as a Motor Caravan by the DVLA.
She has a Steering Lock and SAFE-T Pedal Lock that will be included in the sale.
She has two keys- one original and one cut by previous owners.

She has been freshly valeted, ready for sale.

Beds Description

Tilly is perfect for sleeping 2. She has a permanently fixed day bed, great for relaxing and reading on. This bed then folds out to form a 1.9m long full length bed and is most the width of the van.

Conversion Description

Tilly has been planned and handcrafted by a previous owners into a camper, using as many recycled pieces of wood as possible.

She is perfect for sleeping two and has a day bed great for relaxing and reading on that folds into a full length bed.

She has ample storage in the kitchen and under the bed, which is split in two, with half serving the living space and the rear half accessible from the boot, which is really useful for storing chairs/ table/ logs and BBQ away from the main living space. Additionally there is a deep storage compartment down the side of the bed great for storing bedding in during the day.

There is a folding shelf at the back which is great when cooking outside.

She has a split charge relay and a 12V leisure battery, that powers the 4 x spotlights, 12V socket, USB chargers and water pump for the tap.
The kitchen has a built in enamel sink with copper tap. It has a 10L clean water tank and 10L brown water tank underneath the sink that are easily removed to be filled up/emptied.

For cooking, she has one camping stove, which slots in to the worksurface when traveling. This runs off the small gas cylinders which is great as if you prefer to move your cooking outside.

There is also a table that can slot into the worksurface in the centre or onto the folding shelf at the rear of the van.

She is very cozy, with a perfect balance of wood and painted elements, the reclaimed wine boxes turned into cupboard doors are a real feature that always turn heads! Her parquet flooring is easy to clean if you step inside with muddy boots! She has custom made blackout curtains that run on both top and bottom wires.
