Volkswagen T4 Transporter Holdsworth Valentine Special Motorhome Model History

VW T4 Transporter Holdsworth  Valentine Special  Motorhome

Circa 1994 Richard Holdsworth Conversions used the  short wheel based (SWB) T4 Transporter Cab Chassis as the base vehicle for a new coachbuilt model called the VW T4 Holdsworth Valentine Special Motorhome. This was an alternative to the existing Holdsworth Valentine as it was slightly larger and had a different rear layout. The interior layout consisted of a central living / bed area incorporating an L-shaped seating area. The kitchen ran along the side opposite the seating area and included an oven. There was also a rear washroom / shower cubicle with cassette toilet and wash basin. There was an access door on the side and a second bed over the front cab area.
