Volkswagen T4 Transporter Holdsworth Villa XL Camper Model History

VW  T4 Transporter Holdsworth  Villa  XL Hightop Camper

VW T4 Holdsworth Villa XL Hightop Camper

Following on from the first version of the VW T4 Transporter Villa model in circa 1993 Richard Holdsworth Conversions released a new version called the Holdsworth Villa XL Camper. It was available with either a high top roof or a solid sided pop top elevating roof and the interior layout was similar in design to the earlier VW T4 Holdsworth Villa but with updated upholstery and improved design and specification. The interior had cupboards along the side behind the drivers seat and the rear seat converted into a 3/4 width double bed. One of the main differences in the interior design is that this version had a front opening fridge whereas the old version had a top loading fridge.
