If practicality is a key feature you’re looking for in a campervan, then this 2011 Danbury Diamond fits the bill. Danbury developed their own powered steering system for the VW Kombi around 2010, to meet the increasing number of customers who wanted their campervan to be even easier to drive. The option was very expensive when new – £4000 – and apart from making the T2 very ‘car-like’ to drive, it has meant that pre-owned examples with this feature, are very popular. If you need to parallel park or manoeuvre your camper in tight spaces, then the addition of powered steering is of enormous benefit.
In Olive Green under White this Kombi has a classic look that includes white bumpers, an aluminium side-step, chrome mirrors and hubcaps. You could further this by painting the wheels white and fitting white banded tyres! The beauty of the T2 is you can play with its look at any time relatively easily.
This Kombi carries 5 comfortably on its matching green cloth seats; up front the driver and passenger seats have 3 point seatbelts, with 3 lap belts fitted to the rear. We can install further 3 point seat belts there if required. Raising the pop-top furthers the practicality as occupants can then stand up within the rear cabin. The Diamond conversion features a full width bed. Flipping the included buddy seat open enables 5 to sit within the camper around the removable table.
The Diamond unit contains all you would need for a camping adventure – gas twin hob with grill, sink with electrically pumped cold water with custom chopping board, and a low power fridge. What’s going to be your favourite campervan dish?!
The camper has plenty of carrying ability inside the buddy box, under the rear seat and in the boot. It also has a rare storage unit between the front seats that features cup-holders for your on-the-go beverages!! The spare wheel is located on the nearside in the boot.
You could increase this Kombi’s carrying capability by fitting a classic style roof rack and/or fitting a tow bar, to which you can then add a bike carrier or even tow a small trailer. (NB: you cannot pull a trailer at the same time as using the bike carrier.)
Its modern water-cooled engine ensures reliability and low running costs. The 80bhp 1.4 motor can return upwards of 35mpg.
