VW T3 Holdsworth HiFlyer

Circa 1980 Holdsworth introduced the T25 / T3 Volkswagen Holdsworth Hi-Flyer. This was a 2 berth (or 4 berth with optional roof bed) camper with a hightop roof. The interior had cupboards along the side behind the drivers seat, a toilet compartment, and the rear seat converted into a 3/4 width double bed. The hightop roof had extra storage cupboards at the front and a huge amount of space to the rear with a standing headroom height of 1905 mm.

The Holdsworth Hi-Flyer was fitted with either the petrol 2000 cc air cooled engine or the diesel 1600 cc water cooled engine.
