Volkswagen T25 / T3 Autohomes Kameo Mark 1 Camper Model History

 

VW T25 Autohomes Kameo

 

Circa 1983 Autohomes introduced the T25 / T3 Volkswagen Autohomes Kameo Mark 1. This was a 2 berth camper with a hightop roof with extra storage compartments in the roof. The interior had cupboards along the side behind the drivers seat and the rear seat converted into a 3/4 width double bed. At the same time Autohomes introduced another similar model called the Karisma. The Karisma had a much higher specification than the Kameo.

The standard engine option was the 2000cc CU air cooled engine with an extra cost option of a water cooled diesel engine.
