Anyone got a T2 or a T25/T3 camper?

(10 Posts)

I'm looking to get a camper and torn between what to get.

My heart tells me to get a T2 as they look so great. But my head tells me a T3 will be more reliable, cheaper maintanance, cheaper to buy, more space.

I'm just worried if I get a T3 I'll always regret not gettign a T2.

We have a T3 and love it!

Sure, the T2's are prettier to look at (well, initially, but I love my 'brick' now!), but the T3's are roomier, generally more reliable and a little bit faster.

Pretty much all that your logic told you grin.

Don't be swayed by those on-the-surface good looks!

does it have to be a vw?

I would like a VW more than other brands. I haven't seen anything else that catches my eye enough to consider.

Harimad - what engine do you have in yours and what mpg do you get?

check out autosleeper (they are sometimes vw anyway) they do excellent camper conversions. i think it is worth having a look at a few different types.

sorry just remembered you need to use as main car. are their any dealerships near you, probably best to go and ask questions there.

I've not found any dealers near me yet, no. Will keep looking.

autotrader is a good place to sniff out dealerships. they are strangely evasive.

Thanks, have found a few now via autotrader. On a T25 forum someone said that diesl T25s should be avoided as the engine doesn't last. Is that true?
