Autosleeper Trident 4 Berth Camper Van 1997 VW Transporter T4 - 1 Owner 15 years



Autosleeper Trident VW Transporter T4 Camper Van 4 Berth 1997 Petrol 2.0 SWB

A lovely VW Autosleeper that has been well cared for since new by it's 2 owners.


Purchased when new in August 1997 from Simpsons VW of Great Yarmouth (the original number plates and original rear window sticker are still on the van!!) and owned by the same person until July 2007, just under 10 years. The second owner then purchased it and owned it right up until now, a whopping 15 years!

The camper has just gone through a new MOT which expires December 2024. There were some minor advisories mentioned on the MOT (2 brake discs, couple of rubber bushes, couple of previous welding repairs, and 2 or 3 of bits of minor corrosion underneath that may need attention in the future) considering this van is now coming upto 27yrs of age that's not too bad! We have had this one a little while now and with the MOT advisories in mind we have decided to reduce the vehicle from £12,995 to £9,995 to move it on and make space for another camper. Bargain price considering the low mileage, bodywork condition and the fact it has had only 2 owners from new :-)

Length: 4m 70cm Width: 1m 91cm (mirrors in) Height: 2m 64cm

Specification to include: Gas blown air heating system, twin gas hob, gas grill, 3 way fridge, sink with cold water tap, rotating passenger seat, 240v hook up, 240v sockets, 12v leisure battery system, 12v lighting, 12v control panel, 2 x seat belts on rear seat, blinds/fly screens, original VW cassette player, rear ladder, roof rack.

A very honest and genuine camper van really lovely condition for it's age (please view the YouTube video). Let us not forget the fact this van is now 25yrs of age and has covered 77520 miles so naturally you are going to find wear and tear commensurate with age and mileage. Some minor marks on paintwork (please view YouTube video), inside is lovely with only minor wear and tear evident considering it's age.

This VW Trident Camper Van comes with a comprehensive 4 page report from Motor Check to confirm that it has no hidden stories (no finance, not an insurance write off, verified mileage history etc etc)

Part Exchange
In most instances we would be enthusiastic to take your current camper van or motorhome in part exchange against this vehicle. Or we will also consider your car at trade price as we would just normally trade it onto the small network of car dealers that we sell to. I'm sorry but we don't deal in the following: caravans, boats or motorbikes.

You can RESERVE this vehicle with ONLY a £500 deposit payable by bank transfer. An invoice would be emailed to you along with our company bank info and a welcome email explaining in black and white everything that the vehicle is going to come with. The balance wherever possible would need to be paid by bank transfer on collection/delivery. We don't have finance facilities sorry. Happy to accept a cheque but would need to clear in our account before vehicle is released. We can also accept cash (£5000 max).

MOT Workshops
Once sold the majority of RETAIL campers/motorhomes will go through one of the two independent Lincs MOT workshops that we use and have a new 12m MOT carried out and also normally an engine oil service at the same time (unless it has been recently done) along with anything else the vehicle requires mechanically. We use two different MOT workshops depending on the size of the vehicle. WE DO NOT CARRY OUT MOT'S OURSELVES.

Habitation Checks
All retail vehicles will come with a habitation check covering gas/240v/12v and to ensure that all appliances are functioning correctly. Some habitation checks are carried out by Lincs Motorhome & Caravan Services whereas others are checked in-house (depends on vehicle type and how busy LMCS is)

On our retail Camper/Motorhome vehicles we can offer NATIONWIDE delivery free of charge, certain locations may be excluded from this offer (Highlands and Islands etc).

You are most welcome to come to us to collect. If you prefer to come by train to collect your new camper/motorhome in Lincolnshire then one of us can come and pick you up from Cleethorpes, Market Rasen or Lincoln Train stations. If you come and collect then we can do a full demonstration of your vehicle on handover which we are unable to offer if you opt for the delivery service (Our driver can show you the basics though).

Please be aware that all viewings are by pre arranged appointment only. We work from home in the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside and do not have set opening hours unlike traditional high street showrooms. Viewings arranged 6 days a week Monday to Friday 10.00am to 6.00pm and Saturday 10am - 4pm. Please note we are closed on a Sunday/Bank Holiday.

For your peace of mind we give a 3 month warranty on all of our RETAIL camper vans/motorhomes (Full details are seen on our website). While every precaution is taken to ensure the vehicle is free of faults upon delivery/collection now and again things can and do go wrong (as these are older vehicles please remember!!!) and we don't have a crystal ball to predict if and when a problem will occur! When issues arise we will assist you to have the problem fixed. We will consider working with a local repairer to yourselves to have any work completed, or the vehicle may have to come back to us for warranty repairs. There is a of course a limit as to how much testing we can do in our own workshops and sometimes it isn't until customers start to use their vans for days/weeks away that some minor faults can become apparent. There is a simple claims procedure that would need to be followed in the event that you have an issue.
