I own a Moortown conversion and would be interested to hear from any other Moortown owners?

Lovely interior!!

The widht and length of the bed is rather for small/skinny people i would say.. no?

How much of these campers are left or ever made?
Never seen these conversions before but they're really nice!!


Is this still all OG? like the paint scheme and matching doorcards!! Cool bus!

Nice selection from your collection of pictures...
Nice brochure...I now have some more VW ones but still not the VW model IV that you have...but mostly other marques that Moortown converted as model IVs!
How is the van going?

I will either beat this scanner or see how far I can throw it up the garden...
I will scan all the Moortown brochures and send copies to you...
Whilst working at a prominent Auto maker I could .pdf and e-mail direct but now I cannot even have a mobile...at work..

Not found the .63 I am working on son's 64..

You should try to get all the MT owners to show pictures...
I now know of four....seen one!

I picked up a cooker and cabinet like that the other day, wondered what it was from. If any of you moortown guys need one let me know

My Moortown camper will be featured in next months Volksworld magazine. Looking forward to seeing the article, photos should be good.

This Moortown is the one featured in David Eccles book 'Volkswagen Camper - The Inside Story' and now lives in New Zealand, It is one of the most immaculate unrestored interiors I have ever seen, a thing of beauty. I am pretty sure it has been in the same family for well over 20 years.
