New member with Mk1 Caddy but NO camper yet!

Postby tomc » 24 Sep 2016 18:48

Owned the truck for a while now and have been looking for a suitable camper back since, as they seem to be near impossible to come by I'm now considering a self build.

If anyone knows of a suitable camper for sale I'd be grateful before I attempt to build or convert something else.

Hello Tom pity there isn't a Tischer on sale here in UK this week but it isn't unknown, meanwhile watch our sales thread for used Tischer in Europe,
Germany would be the nearest market I'd imagine though they appear in France quite regular

Yeah I have regularly been checking the sales but would ideally like one from the UK so I could check it out before buying, would like the pop up top model but would consider anything that is compatible with my truck, so far I only know of the Tischer and the Pony, does anyone know of anymore I haven't found?

Certainly been appearing in the for sale section here in UK so they do exist here
Think a lot are owned by the VW scene so presumably come up for sale on their own groups

Good luck

Welcome to the group. I believe the Tandy Pony is a good fit for the caddy. It's a fibreglass shell and so is not a bad purchase even quite old as long as the gel coat has survived. I had one and it was an easy load to carry. They come up for sale in the uk from time to time. Good luck in your search, K33F
