Volkswagen T25 / T3 Autohomes Komet (Mark 1) Camper Model History

VW T25 Autohomes Komet

 

VW T25 Autohomes Komet Campervan

Circa 1986 Autohomes introduced a new camper called the T25 / T3 Volkswagen Autohomes Komet.  This was a 4 berth model with high top roof. The interior had cupboards along the side behind the drivers seat and the rear seat converted into a 3/4 width double bed with another double bed in the hightop roof.

This version of the Autohomes Komet was fitted with VW water cooled engines.
