Toyota Hiace Van / Day Van / Stealth Camper. FSH No VAT
This is the tailgate model, ideal for changing under if the weather is less than perfect.
Never missed a beat, has passed every MOT with no advisories (except the last, worn tyre, now changed)
Full service history, at Toyota Main dealer until 2015, then at excellent local mechanics. This van has wanted for nothing.
New timing belt at 115,000 miles
MOT until Feb. 2020
Only 2 owners. 2 keys
This is the more desirable 120 bhp version. Still good fuel economy but much better response and nicer on the motorway
DAB radio with CD player and AUX-in fitted in place of the standard unit
Air conditioning, still blows ice cold.
Fully insulated floor/walls/ceilings with Kingspan insulation and complete vapour barrier.
Ply lined by professional cabinet maker, so a great job.
Removable 2-piece bed, single or full-sized double. Plenty of room for a bike down the side of the single bed.
Split charge relay, charges leisure battery when the engine is running.
110 AH deep cycle leisure battery in custom wooden box.
USB chargers and 12v outlets to power any device you might wish. 12v at each door to power bike washer.
Separately switched overhead LED lighting
Glazed bulkhead and tailgate mean that there is daylight in the rear without the need for additional windows. Ideal for stealth camping.
Fitted with a towbar when I bought it, only ever used for a bike rack. Comes with Thule 2-bike rack and additional number plate.
Also supplied with Coleman Classic Awning which makes an excellent awning from the side door or tailgate for use at festivals et c.
Of course as a 9 year old van there are bound to be some negatives.
Some small bodywork dents and stone chips. Just been sanded back and painted, so good for ages.
Bumpers scratched here and there.
Small stone chip in windscreen. This doesn’t affect the MOT, it’s been there since I got the van.
On the whole a fantastic van, big enough to sleep comfortably, with loads of storage space under the bed, yet small enough to use as a daily driver, fits easily in a regular car park. Glazed bulkhead and tailgate means that it has a rear view mirror, so easy to drive and park.
These vans are legendary for their longevity, this has many many years of happy camping ahead of it. I’m only getting rid as the wife wants a larger van.
