VOLKSWAGEN LT 40 4X4

Cactus es una furgoneta VWLT40 4×4 del 1987.

Compramos la furgoneta en Enero de 2016 y la restauramos y camperizamos durante ese año.

Después de 15 meses viajando por Sudamerica (2017-2018) nos hemos asentado en Barcelona y parece que no vamos a viajar durante un tiempo, por eso aunque nos da mucha pena, hemos decidido vender a nuestra querida Cactus, así podrá seguir viviendo aventuras.

Durante nuestro viaje recorrimos 35.000km por carreteras, pistas, tierra, arena, barro y sal y nunca nos falló. La cuidamos mucho e hicimos todos los mantenimientos necesarios. 

El interior de la furgo es artesanal, hecho con nuestras propias manos y con mucho amor. Es perfecto para 2 personas con mucho espacio de almacenamiento y posibilidad de acampada totalmente independiente.
