Volkswagen T4 Transporter Autohomes Kompact Camper Model History

VW T4 Transporter Autohomes  Kompact

VW T4 Autohomes Kompact Camper

VW T4 Autohomes Kompact Hightop Camper

Circa 1990 Volkswagen phased out the rear engined T25 / T3 Transporter. The replacement for the T25 was the front engined T4 Transporter. Autohomes used the new T4 Transporter as the base vehicle for a new model called the Autohomes Kompact Camper released circa 1992.  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 Kompact had a low profile hightop roof which had a storage locker inside (making it a two berth) and a tailgate ladder leading to a rear roof locker with fibreglass lid. At the same time Autohomes released a similar model called the Koncord. The Autohomes Koncord had a higher profile hightop roof and internally had a fold out bed at the rear instead of the roof storage locker. It also had a tailgate ladder leading to an external rear roof rack.
