1977 VW T2 Bay Window Camper Van. Rare Viking Spacemaker Roof Model. Fully Restored. Brand New Interior


Absolutely stunning example previously owned by one of our highly meticulous members of staff. Gary has always had a keen eye for perfection and has cared for this bus with fastidious attention throughout his ownership.

This is a factory German built and UK Supplied Right Hand Drive bus from new featuring the rare and aptly named Viking ‘Spacemaker’ roof which is the largest and most spacious roof you can have on a classic VW camper. The Viking roof originated in Hertfordshire in the early 1970s by a company called ‘Motorhomes International’, who at the time were competing with the likes of Westfalia and Devon with their spacious and innovative design for roof conversions allowing for multiple occupants to sleep ‘upstairs’ in T2 Campers.

The entire bus has been fully repainted in period 1970s VW Orange and the original roof canopy matches in very good condition with no rips or tears. When the roof folds out there are two large hammocks for sleeping and also a small side facing bunk at the front suitable for a child to sleep. You can also sleep two people on the rock n’ roll bed ‘downstairs’ which means that the bus will sleep 5 people in total and that’s before you think about adding an awning! Absolutely perfect for family getaways and for those who like to time warp back to a different era of style whilst also being able to enjoy many modern comforts that have been retrofitted inside.

All of the upholstery in the bus is brand new on the door cards, seats, bed cushions etc. ¾ width Rock n’ Roll bed of the highest quality and buddy seat to match. Side facing cabinetry with plenty of storage, double gas burner, sink and Isotherm fridge unit. 240V mains hookup, leisure battery system with high quality split charge relay kit and USB points in the rear for phone charging etc. This really is fully loaded inside and finished with meticulous attention to detail wherever you look.

Reconditioned 1600TP engine recently removed and stripped of ancillaries for full detailing and fully serviced on the bench at the same time.

Overall the bus is in stunning condition with new parts and components everywhere you look including four new whitewall tyres, polished stainless hub caps, inertia seat belts in the front etc. Comes with 12 months MOT for added peace of mind, even though no longer required by law.
