VW 1988 LT40 4x4, TD, LIKE NEW! Self-sufficient!   Price: 49999 CAD
Video Tour: https://youtu.be/hNgYCeKy9L0

It hurts us very much that we now officially offer a great love of our life for sale. We would like to point out in advance that this vehicle will only be sold by us because we will not have the time to take care of it in the future anymore. Since we have always maintained and cared for this vehicle with a lot of love, had many great adventures with it and much more... we have a very close connection with the vehicle and it is very important to us that this vehicle is passed on into good hands.

The offered vehicle is not just any four-wheel motorhome. It is much more, it is one of the only few built 4x4 VW LT 40 and this one is in a technically and optically almost new condition. The vehicle is imported from Germany, was taken apart there, down to the smallest screw and got restored/renewed from a Company who is specialized in old VW vans. According to Service Ontario it is the first LT40 4x4 from 1988 imported from Germany into Ontario. The vehicle has countless features and extras that make it to an absolutely self-sufficient expedition/adventure vehicle. Camp anywhere, without electricity, without water, in the middle of the wilderness, even the cold Canadian winter doesn't speak against a trip with this motorhome! We tested it ourselves and lived a complete winter in Ontario in this vehicle. Details about the equipment etc. can be found further down in the text.

Added to the sale will be expensive special tools and spare parts specially required for this vehicle, who will be a great help to you for future repairs and maintenance.

Included in the purchase price is a half-day tour around the camper, during which we will explain every little technical detail to the buyer and teach you how to keep this vehicle in top condition and maintain it properly. So that the buyer can enjoy this unique vehicle for a long time. Included is also an oil change which we carry out together with the seller shortly before it gets picked up, so that the seller is also familiar with this process with the vehicle.

Since it is a private sale, we give neither a guarantee or a warranty on the vehicle and any parts. Also to this letter we would like to protect ourselves legally and therefore note that sizes and quantity data partly correspond to estimates and could deviate with exact re-measuring.

And now we come to the probably most important part, the vehicle description:
