    We have had this beauty in the family for over 5 years. It does various different tasks from helping me move house, my daily driver, my winter hack, caravan tugger, trips to the tip, fishing trips, mountain bike trips, helping load up at DIY stores, carrying the kids about. Basically I wouldn't be without it!
    Its an original Caravelle with A/C, driver/passenger air bags, ABS but no remote central locking and no electric windows. Its been treated to a stainless exhaust, egr delete with the shiny allard pipe and a remap, powder coated wheels and new black/silver centers and slightly lowered. Previously I wasn't doing much miles but romped on these last 2 years and its up to 132000miles.

                    Hi Buddy - Yes I have the diesel heater but its never worked. I bypassed the temp sensor years back and it went to a specialist that told me the unit wouldn't talk to their diagnostic equipment. Its on my list, ill get to it one day

                      Thanks for the warm welcome.......If I had money I wouldn't be driving around in a 17 year old T4!! Haha.... I do however drive past lots of nice cars on my way to work...Through Lytham.

                        Yes, its a big caravan. Mine is a 2.5TDI 102 with few increases in power. Its a great towing vehicle. Its taken us to Cornwall, Devon, North Yorks, Scotland and Wales over the years. I fitted cruise so those long trips on motorways are a doddle

                            My brother in law didn't know his had one til it kicked in when he started the velle up on a cold day and it started making noises and steam was coming from the passenger arch area.
                            I thought his was an unusual spec (no lecky windows and no central locking but obviously not that unusual.
