VW T25 Westfalia Joker Campervan 1.9 turbo diesel 1986




….For sale is our beautiful VW T25 Westfalia camper Ruby. To say this is a reluctant sale is putting it mildly, we are buying a plot of land to build a house and won’t have room therefore need to sell. She is part of the family and has been for nearly 10 years. She is without doubt the best and most fully sorted T25 out there, a real head turner, very reliable, really fun to drive. Cruises along at 70mph happily all day long. No expense has been spared, literally. She has had some lovely individual tweaks that make using her a dream, we have travelled all through the France, the alps, followed the Tour de France, toured this country etc with our family of 4 and our dog. She has a matching canvas drive away awning that comes with her, a Fiamma F35 roll out awning that we had spayed to match, we had her fully re sprayed nearly six years ago, we had a carravelle sunroof fitted into the pod in fron of the pop up roof, works really well. We had a reconditioned 1.9 turbo Diesel engine put in three years ago, she was originally a 1.6 turbo diesel, she runs like and absolute dream, so nice to drive. If you know these vans they always run a little hot so we had two oil coolers fitted to the cooling system that keeps her running between 80 to 90 degrees and some grills pressed into the rear panel by the number plate to let the hot air around the engine escape better. We also fitted VDO gauges to show oil temp, oil pressure and water temp. We fitted a new fuel tank about two years ago, she had a new turbo last year, fully serviced and mot,d this summer. As she is an original Westfalia she has the underslung LPG and waste water tanks that all work perfectly, she has and integral water tank and a leisure battery with 240v hook up, again all works fine. I removed eberspacher heater as it didn’t work and I wanted the extra storage space. We fitted a new fridge and tap plus pump 3 years ago. We had new curtains professionally made but have kept the original Westfalia ones for the purists. I put a new westfalia pop top on which fits really nicely, about 3 years ago. When she was resprayed the company made a flat bit on the passenger side of the dashboard like the caravelles, great for cups of tea.. She has the twin tables, sleeps two up top and two on the rock & roll bed. The Fiamma awning has sides. We had the paulchen bike rack modified to work with 4 bikes and it has a reinforcing bar that makes it safe and stable to carry 4 bikes. I fittted two roof bars and had them colour coded so it looks right, more than enough to carry our surfboards and the pop top roof goes up fine with the boards on too. She is fully kitted out and works perfectly on long family holidays or just a weekend away. It will be a real wrench to sell her but we have no choice really, however we are in no major rush though so won’t accept silly offers. Difficult to price something that is priceless but I think the price is representative for a fully sorted and kitted outt classic camper. In my view the T25 or T3 is the best of the types, it has the classic edge to it but has everyday practicality and space.. lots of it and they are only going to go up in value. I have loads of pics, I could only put 12 on here. Please contact me for any questions etc. Thanks.
