Volkswagen T25 Holdsworth Variety

Circa 1984 Holdsworth introduced a new model called the VW T25 / T3 Holdsworth Variety. This was a hightop camper using Volkswagens factory hightop van as a basis. The interior was unusual in design as it had the kitchen and storage lockers running across the rear end. The two flexi seats could be used in a variety of layout options and could be arranged to create either two single beds or a double bed.

The Holdsworth Variety was fitted with either 60 or 78 bhp water cooled petrol engines or the diesel 50 bhp water cooled engine. Four or five speed manual gearboxes or an automatic gearbox could be specified.
