VW T4 Transporter Holdsworth Vista Hightop Camper

Circa 1994 Richard Holdsworth Conversions used the  short wheel based (SWB) T4 Transporter as the base vehicle for new model called the VW T4 Holdsworth Vista Camper. It was available initially only with a high top roof and the interior layout was similar in design to the VW T4 Holdsworth Vision but as well as having a central living / bed area and rear kitchen it also incorporated a rear bathroom area with cassette toilet and fold out wash basin.
