Volkswagen T4 Transporter Autohomes Komet Camper Model History

VW T4 Transporter Autohomes Komet Camper

Autohomes unveiled a new model based on the VW T4 platform called the Autohomes Komet Camper at the 1993 Earls Court Caravan Show. Note that the Autohomes Komet name had been used previously for a VW T25 based model. The interior had kitchen and cupboards along the side behind the drivers seat and the rear seat converted into a 3/4 width double bed. The Autohomes Komet had a hightop roof which had a fold out bed inside (making it a four berth) and a tailgate ladder leading to a rear roof rack. The VW T4 Autohomes Komet was very similar to another model released at the same time called the VW T4 Autohomes Kamper but came with a better specification as standard including occasional 2 person table, crockery set for four, propex blown air heating with thermostatic control, swivelling driver seat, adjustable cab seat arms and Thetford 265 porta potti toilet. These were available as extra cost options on the VW T4 Autohomes Kamper.
