VW T25 Autohomes Kamper Mk3 Elevating Roof Camper

Circa 1984 Autohomes introduced the latest version of the T25 / T3 Volkswagen Autohomes Kamper. This was an updated and improved version of the Autohomes Kamper Mark 2 and it was offically called the Autohomes Kamper Mark 3 although generally it was just called the Authomes Kamper. As with the Mark 2 version 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 improvements over the Autohomes Kamper Mark 2 included a spoiler on the front of the roof rack and restyled roof rack, new soft furnishings, mains electric hook up with earth leakage circuit breaker, 12 volt socket, enamelled cooker and sink with a hinged glass top over the cooker, separate drainer, simplified and strengthened conversion of the rear sear to a double bed,  centre leg table, cutlery draw, larger vanity unit with mirror, water gauge, special wheel trims and a large (approx 2 cubic foot) Electrolux RM212 fridge (gas, electric, 12 volt) with freezer compartment and electronic ignition.

This version of the Autohomes Kamper was fitted with the new water cooled engines.
