Danbury T2 High Mileage

Danbury T2 High Mileage

Postby Sherie2 » Wed Sep 10, 2014 3:38 pm

We have been looking at the T2's from Danbury for over a year now and spend many time on campsites and shows talking to owners, we do have a problem though! Because of our budget all the ones we are seeing are quite high mileage, for example 70-80k+ . My question is this. Where should I draw the line on mileage? Are these engines capable of 100k plus?

Sorry for daft questions but we want to get it right and dont want it to be forever in the garage.

Are you referring to the new 1.4 water cooled engine or the earlier 1.6 air cooled?

As long as it has been regularly serviced and otherwise looked after, high mileage shouldn't be a problem.

Just in case you didn't know, the reading on the dash of a T2 in actually in km not miles.

If you buy a used camper direct from Danbury we offer a full parts and labour warranty and we inspect our vehicles fully before they go on sale. Condition and how a vehicle has been looked after can be more important than distance covered . Hope that helps

Hi Sherie

As others have said, if you look after the van she will look after you, regular servicing and TLC will keep her going to 100k +
