Interesting that it looks to be right hand drive, but the don't have the sliding door side reversed like you usually see.

I do like that style bed setup, with all the clear area under it. They have to have near double the height under the bed that we do in our Roadtrek.

A strong dollar and an economy teetering on recession will do that to an RV price. But I'm sure that options list can close the gap!

I think this is the current UK price list, with individual options and packages. Looks like it could get quite spendy.

Very nice. We had a diesel VW Westfalia RV and it was a favorite.

But, I think 39,000 pounds is closer to 60,000 USD. And that doesn't include a lot of options some people take for granted - air conditioning in the cab, passenger air bags, adjustable passenger seat, automatic transmission, etc.

But still very nice. And now that the Ducato is in America, I hope they start converting US spec Promasters.

As of right now at $1.49 per pound so about $58,100. Would have been nice if it had been $45K!

Oops, my mistake. With my bad hearing I thought the guy in the video quoted a price of about 30,000 pounds. Now I understand that he said 39,000. That would be over $58,000 US according to the exchange I went to on Google. I'm feeling much better about the price I paid for my Travato now.

The price list indicates that VAT tax (20%) is included, so sold the way American RVs are priced with taxes added after the list price the base unit lists for about $46,700 US. Adding the Chassis Plus package, which seems almost mandatory with items such as airbags, cab air conditioning, LED lighting, etc., brings the US equivalent price to $49,765.

What's impressive is that Westfalia offers a nicely equipped basic travel and camper van for just under $50k US. They've eliminated typical RV extras such as lighted awnings, outdoor speakers, TVs, generators, and tailgator BBQ connections in favor of top-line systems such as the standard Truma Combi heater/boiler. For many buyers who favor a basic but high quality campervan that's a nice tradeoff.

Westfalia does offers the higher end Columbus model for those seeking a more tricked out RV. But that basic Amundsen sort of channels the old Westfalia VW camper we owned 20+ years ago - simple but good quality finishes and design. Of course the Amundsen's turbo-diesel chassis and Truma Combi systems are light years ahead of the old VW!
