Meet Dakota, born in 1977 and being built and manufactured in Germany, the home of VW’s, you will notice he’s a left hand drive. With his new engine, fitted Porsche seats and all the mod cons to give this classic camper a modern twist he truly is a comfortable and pleasurable drive. Last year we put him through a complete restoration and re-spray to bring him back to his former glory. Now recently fitted out with a brand new interior by ‘VW Type 2 Interiors’ you can be one of the first to enjoy him at his best.  Dakota is the ideal camper for a cosy getaway for a couple.

Dakota’s interior has a “Rock & Roll” bed fitted which acts as a bench seat by day for when you’re travelling or having a break which then transforms into a comfortable bed by night for sleeping.  There is a 38 Litre fridge for storing food and drink and cupboard space for storing dry food, clothes, etc.

Dakota comes with a sink/stove combination unit which means you have a supply of running water. There is a 20 Litre LPG tank which is located underneath the camper; this is used to supply gas to the 2 stove gas hob and the propex heating system. Our LPG gas tank stores enough gas for over a month’s continual use without the need to be re-filled giving you one less hassle on your trip and as its stored underneath this means it’s not taking up any of the valuable space inside. Safety is our top priority here at Carty’s Campers which is why each of our campers undergo annual checks from a gas safety registered engineer and adhere to their very strict safety checks.


Quite a bit has changed in the last 36 years which is why we’ve added a few mod cons. These include
  • A CD player that has the capability for use of your MP3 player (we supply the cable required)
  • Cigarette lighter which is ideal for charging your phone/mp3 player etc.
  • 240v socket. Therefore if you are on a campsite with 240v hook up capabilities you will be able to use any electrical appliances you would normally use in your house. (We supply the hook up cable).
  • There is also a portable DVD player and PSP available upon request at no extra charge.
  • Sat Nav supplied upon request at no extra charge.
