VW T4 Rear Boot Conversion

This lovely VW T4 LWB Caravelle has been well looked after.  Passed from mother to son Dan, he and family use the van for their hobbies from Surfing, camping and cooking.

As it’s a Caravelle Dan did not want to mess with the tidy internal central living area but wanted to build upon it.  By introducing front seat swivel by REIMO and an internal FIAMMA removable table it has really opened up the living area.

Storage was required for camping essentials and cooking facilities all to be accessed from the rear, which will be covered by a rear awning.  A sub woofer and cool box was to be carried.  Also it was decided to compliment the Green van by using Green Formica on horizontal surfaces.  3 drawers were constructed with a larger ‘pan’ drawer in the front.  An additional front flap was required to allow access to the table storage.  The table is fitted in the center of the existing WV mat. 

Dan wanted a retro feel so opted to have the FORMICA surfaces in plain edge without trim, leaving the exposed and treated birch ply layers on show.

The internal seats fold flat which reveal more storage at the rear of the unit.
