VW T25 Autohomes Kamper  Poptop

Circa 1981 Autohomes introduced the T25 / T3 Volkswagen Autohomes Kamper. It had an elevating pop top roof with rigid sides. The interior had cupboards along the side behind the drivers seat and the rear seat converted into a 3/4 width double bed. The engine options used either the 1600 cc or the 2000 cc CU air cooled engines.
