Volkswagen T4 Transporter Holdsworth Villa Camper Model History

VW T4 Transporter Holdsworth Villa Poptop Camper

Circa 1990 Volkswagen phased out the rear engined T25 / T3 Transporter. The replacement for the T25 was the front engined T4 Transporter. Richard Holdsworth Conversions used the new T4 Transporter as the base vehicle for their latest version of the Holdsworth Villa Camper released circa Sept 1991. It was available with tintop, high top roof or a solid sided pop top elevating roof and the interior layout was similar in design to the earlier VW T25 Holdsworth Villa but with updated upholstery and improved specification. The interior had cupboards along the side behind the drivers seat and the rear seat converted into a 3/4 width double bed.
