    Gone from t25 to t4


    Old van, had for years done loads of work, but had a caravelle bus interior. Good to this, only three years younger :

    Autosleeper trooper with solid pop up roof, more space inside for kids. Only downside is it doesn't have power steering, and oddly it's steering is heavier than the t25, maybe as the steering wheel is only large not massive. About to go on first camping trip tomorrow, hope I have picked up all the snags!

    There is a lot of weight on the t4 wheels as well where as the front of the t25 Is nice and light not sure that makes a difference. Both smart vans though

    I hired a T25 once a couple of years ago, really liked the way it handled, I don't know much about these things but I think the rear mounted engine had a lot to do with it. Anyway ... love your vans

    Ha, thanks. The t25 is great, good to drive, amazing turning circle. A little underpowered with the 1.9 petrol and shocking fuel economy! The t4 also has a 2l petrol engine and has more power and economy, so better for towing my boat. More pics is the t4 soon. Thanks for comments.

    The old rear engined buses always look so much more roomy inside, just look bigger, I guess it's because the front screen is right at the front unlike the T4's, I'd have either preferably both given half a chance 😁
