We’re enthusiastic about every VW Kombi that we have the pleasure of selling. But sometimes something so unique comes into our showroom that we even find ourselves awestruck. Here’s a campervan package that has enormous potential. Simply put, it’s a top of the range 2014 Danbury Diamond SE with a matching teardrop trailer. But when you consider how you could use this ‘Kombination’ then you’ll understand its full worth.
Let’s talk about the campervan to start with. Danbury developed their own powered steering system for the VW Kombi around 2010, to meet the increasing number of customers who wanted their VW 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 Glossy Black under Candy White this Kombi has a dynamic look that includes a metal sunvisor, chrome bumpers, headlamp rings and mirrors, an aluminium side-step, lowered suspension, replica Porsche Fuchs alloys and a colour-coordinated dummy front spare cover. Over the cab you’ll find a highly useful wooden roof-rack and to the rear parking sensors in the bumper.
This Kombi carries 5 comfortably on its luxury cream leather seats; up front the driver and passenger seats have 3 point seatbelts, with 3 lap belts fitted to the rear. We can install 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 lower bed. The pop top on this Kombi has the upper bed boards and mattress making it a full 4 berth campervan. The spare wheel is located in the factory position to the nearside rear and is discreetly covered in matching felt.
Crafted in the latest style from Danbury, the Diamond unit contains all you would need for a camping adventure – gas twin hob with grill, sink with electrically pumped cold water and a low power fridge. Further this SE has the B-unit located behind the front offside seat, adding greater storage options. The camper has further storage under the rear seat and in the boot.
Then you have the matching teardrop trailer! These were offered towards the final years of Danbury converting the T2. The fashion for small, lightweight teardrop trailers remains popular today and Danbury went to great lengths to coordinate their ‘teardrop’ with their campervans. If you look carefully you’ll see that the cream leather is carried across onto a sofa, which converts into a large double bed. There’s an air vent in the roof, dedicated iPod/radio with speakers, lower power strip lighting, attractive pale blue furniture offering plenty of storage and 240v electrical sockets.
Outside the teardrop features the same Glossy Black paintwork contrasted with Candy White, the same Porsche Fuchs style alloys and an external cupboard. The retro rear lights are reminiscent of 1950’s space-age style cars.
But think of how this amazing package could work for you. Sure it’s a fabulous campervan package that will turn heads wherever it goes, but it could also prove incredibly useful in a variety of situations. Think promotional vehicle, market research booth, film/TV unit, radio studio – this VW and trailer could work for you during the week and then by the weekend be your escape plan!! How would you use it?
