Introduction to our VW LT 40 4×4

That’s the first entry in our blog and here we want to introduce you our camper called Cactus.

Cactus is a VW LT 40 AWD (4X4) from 1987.

Some technical information:

  • 2,4 l TD (6 cilynders) with Intercooler (DV Motor + Acl Turbo + Acl Intercooler)
  • 4WD, transfer case with 2H, 4H, N, 4L
  • Differential-locks (front and rear)
  • Power steering 
  • Manual shift

We bought it ready to travel but we didn’t like it so much and it had a weird smell. After a month of “crazyness taking everything apart”, we found corrupted water between the wooden floor and the car body! Which was causing the stink and it was about to rust the body from the van.


Till the next chapter, we are gonna start working, wish us good luck!!

  1. Hello Sir, I am very interested in buying your VW LT-40 and can pay a deposit now. The balance will be paid when you finish your travels. I live in Texas and will ship your van to the Port Of Houston, Texas, 77029. I will need your name, E-mail address and a contact phone number. I hope this find’s both of you safe and well. Thanks, Michael Wellman
