With the exchange rate encouraging Brits to increasingly consider 'staycations', motorhomes provide a welcome alternative to the extremes of kipping in a nice warm hotel or under canvas, and good classic examples are increasingly sought after. 'E38 JYT' could fit the bill for many of those afflicted with wanderlust. It is based on Volkswagen's trusty Type 2 T3 model that was produced between 1979 and 2002, was converted to camper specification by Autohomes of Poole, Dorset, and is powered by a 1915cc engine of 78bhp. Three years ago it was treated to a 'no expense spared' restoration that included: bare metal respray in white; retrim in Brown and Cream; new curtains to the original specification by a Volkswagen specialist; the side window rubbers being replaced and trimmed in chrome; new awning, wheels, tyres, hub caps and outer rims - apparently the replacement decals alone cost £450.

The Vee Dub's comprehensive specification features rear roof ladder, top box storage, viewing area, pair of gas bottles, extension leads etc. The neatly laid out and immaculately presented interior includes sleeping accommodation for up to four adults by way of high and low level beds, cooker, fridge and all the odd mod cons you can reasonably pack into the space available. Since the refurbishment, 'E38 JYT' has been stored in dry, heated premises and used only sparingly. It is now being offered complete with: sales brochure; 1986 article from Motor Caravan magazine; owners' manual; instructions for the cooker and fridge; selection of general invoices and for the restoration work carried out; V5C; MOTs dating back to 1991, plus one valid to August 16th. The mileage currently stands at 86,800 and the vendor unsurprisingly views the camper's condition as 'very good' throughout. A serious consideration for those who have yet to fully sample the UK countryside's countless delights.
