PierremontQuaker03 Forumite posts. Hi, I am looking at the possibility of buying a van, to eventually convert if money allows into a camper van. Initially I was thinking about buying a camper van, but then that would mean having two cars - ideally I want something I can use on a daily basis, commute to work, but also can use on a weekend to chuck some bikes in the back etc etc, cheap holidaying, cheap weekends away.
Looking around I like the look of the VW T5 Transporter - however the guy two doors down from me where I live has one and he is a complete tosser and I dont want to seem like I am copying him. Just wondering if there are any other options? Also I wonder if its worth getting a cheaper one for now, using it for a year to see if I like it, get the use out of it, before I go whole hog on a newer one and get the full camper van conversion?
System World and dog buying vans for non-business use go for the VW T5 Transporter and as a result they're madly overpriced for what they are, often you're paying twice what you would for an equivalent van from another maker. Transits rust before your eyes so I'd avoid those.
Go for the 2 litre Renault Trafic, not the 1.
Oakdene Forumite 2. Get the T4, a much better van than the T5!! Agree with both points above. T5 has reliability issues which VW are in denial about. We're considering a day-van in a few years time when I semi-retire and it'll most likely be a Vivaro.
Eldest Son is an HGV mechanic for a commercial hire company who run a fleet of them and there's always dirt cheap ex rentals coming up for sale, some that have been better looked after than others I must add! You can have results or excuses, but not both. Ozzuk Forumite 1. A car forum I'm on slates the vivaro, do some research on it, supposed to have a lot of issues especially as the mileage hits around k.
I am biased, I have a converted T4 and half way through converting a t5. I use the t5 for commuting when its not in bits - its the auto with sports drive, bhp, supposed to be the best engine to go for. Even the lower specs are quite tunable though. Lots of forums for DIY as well.
