Campervan Description

Legendary and very rare Volkswagen Bischofberger Kranich Star II, vintage car, surfmobile, rolling home, completely self-contained. We offer our one-of-a-kind camper – the palace among the T25/T3´s. Its absolutely unique. It was built in the 80ies by a small german company who did one-off-conversations like this. We bought the motorhome in 2020 and did a full restoration including insulation with 25mm armaflex, rebuilding the walls, refurbing the furniture and sealing all windows and the whole motorhome. We did cavity preservation and underbody protection.

The air-cooled 2.0 CU boxer engine with its rad sound was refurbished by an air-cooled specialist (invoice available) and fitted two new Weber IDF 40 double carburetors. Ever since the engine just ran 8.000 km.

The motorhome comes with many cupboards and a basement that provides a lot of storage under the living room, a rack for two surfboards inside, a 3.50 m wide awning and a small roof terrace.

The sleeping area in the overhead cabin comes with a new mattress (1.30m x 1.90 m). The U-shaped seating area in the living area can be converted into an additional bed, so 4 people can sleep comfortably. The 2-burner gas stove works perfect, the sink comes with a new Katadyn-water filter that provides clean drinking water. The new 80l Dometic compressor fridge, is like everything powered by the solar system. The original Truma gas heater works great. You can live and travel full-time and self-sufficent in summer and winter.
