i have spent most of my life repairing n restoring vw,s .i built trikes etc. have taken type2,s across africa n all over europe .had 2.1,s and done golf gti convertions. i now run a mazda bongo . i paid just over 2grand for a 60 thousand mile tin top ,put a full length roof rack n roof tent on top. if i bought a vw i would be not enjoying it as they are now so expensive. for 2000 pound you get a scrap vw,or it should be, in the last 10yrs they have gone through the roof. it no longer makes sense to buy one. i never thought i would say that but its true .i also have a mitsubishi canter to pull my 5er. in my garden sits a vwlt50 n a vw t25 the t25 is my sons . i still like vw,s but cant afford the costs. look at other vehicles unless you can fix it yourself. get a bongo or a mitsubishi delicia ,i would. off to a bongo meet next w,end just like a vw show 20 yrsago. have fun ,alan.

We have a 1978 VW camper and use to go camping and to picnics locally and have done 2000 miles round trip to the south of France without a hitch. But our engine is "new", and the buy is extremely solid. very little rust. Never had issues finding insurance and breakdown cover that includes europe. It's an expensive passion though. Van is thirsty (2L) and parts can sometimes be expensive. I think the 7k figure given above might even be on the optimistic side of things. Good soliod buses with decent interiors easily fetch 10K plus at the mo..

As per what other have alluded to, it will be cheaper ( "less expensive" more like..) to buy a van already restored than to pay to have one restored.
