    Hi my name is Deb, I live in Coolum on the Sunshine Coast and I'm about to start my journey of looking and eventually buying my first Kombi :)

    My mum and dad had a 68 split screen and as a kid, just loved camping and our trips around the UK in it and remember when we passed another kombi everyone beeped the horn and waved! :D My little bro then got his and I swore that before i was 40 I'd have my own Kombi!! Well 40 came and went a few years ago!! but the time is now right and my research is beginning.

    I have a question, I really want a camper, stove, fridge the works so at the weekends I can fill the fridge with wine and take myself off! It seems that so many have had refites and have seating. if I was to buy with seats, can they be refurbed with kitchen, bed etc and if so any idea of cost?

    Really happy to have found the kombiclub :) and look forward to any replies

    Hello and welcome. There is a camper on nicklin way at the moment for 6000 looks a bit average from the road but not sure what's been done to it.

    If you were to buy one with seats it can b converted but not sure on cost.

    I am sure you will find something. If I hear of any will let you know.

    Thanks Zuespig, I might have a drive down there later.
    gsa2at, love the colour but I was thinking more of get in drive away and nothing to do, that one might just be a little much for me to take on : )

    Hi Deb, the one on Nicklin way is in Wurtulla opposite a bunch of shops. Chinese shop ect, ect. This might help make it easier to track down.

    Seen the $6000 one up close and is a bit rough so depends on how much you want to spend on it. If I had seen this post earlier I would have take the phone number off a guy called bill I was just sitting with at Alex selling his dark blue panel van with blank interior. $1400 Ono. Was I nice solid bus!!
    Good luck and welcome anyway.

    $1400 !! That's cheap as...I went through Alex around midday and saw bays parked up, didn't notice a blue panel....at that price I would have bought it !!

    Welcome Jumpingjelly, another Sunny Coaster, a good few of us up this way now.

    Many thanks guys for your comments. Didn't get down there today, ended up at the Noosa river with my daughter and friends. I work in the community so know I'll be down thwere this week to take a peek. I called the number for one at Peregian but thinking he must have gone back to the UK already. Getting so much info from this sight, I'm looking at more than nice colours now :)

    greeting jumpingjelly
    just read you are looking for a kombi. good place to try is the local vw mechanics. one of the best is mick at micks mechanicals. on 0411833413. he will know if any of his clients are selling and also know the mechanical history of the car.
    also browns at nambour had a very tidy camper there for sale a short time back
    good luck with the search

    I will be talking to todd from Browns on Friday so I will ask about the camper, I haven't seen it there for a bit.

    Sorry I haven't got you that photo, I am having computer problems and can only access certain sites.

    The one at browns is still there, it's in their car park now not next door. believe it to be around the $20,000 mark from memory.

    Camper for sale

    Have a look at my log in on the same page as yours with a picture of our camper. The motor is gone but it is a great vehicle.

    Tiffy.
