This is our Used Auto-Sleeper Trooper 2011/61 Plate camper-van. The Auto-Sleeper Trooper is the iconic V.W. campervan; with its lift-up roof it is ideal for every-day use, weekends away or even months away. This Trooper was first registered in 2011 and is on a 61 plate. It has covered 26,500 miles, is finished in Silver Metallic with Slate fabrics and “Amarti” cabinetwork and is the low-line model.
The Auto-Sleeper Trooper is a short wheel base camper and features the classic V.W. camper layout of twin cab seats, an open living space and “rock and roll” rear seat/bed with 3-point seat belts. As with all Auto-Sleepers, our Trooper has a very good standard specification.
For this example, specification includes cab air conditioning, cruise control, swivelling cab seats, electric windows, and an elevating roof. It also has electric cab windows as well as alloy wheels and driver air-bag as well as removeable carpets. The engine is Volkswagen’s powerful 2.0, 140 psi turbo diesel and 6 speed manual gearbox.
Living with a Used Auto-Sleeper Trooper 2011/61 Plate
Our Used Auto-Sleeper Trooper 2011/61 Plate has a great specification. The Kitchen features a 2-burner gas hob with gas grill below. There’s a 3-way fridge with freezer compartment and sink with tanked, fresh and waste water and a sunken drainer for added convenience.
The Trooper, for its size, has plenty of storage space which can be found under the work surfaces in cupboards and lockers and underneath the rear seat in a useful slide-out drawer. Behind the rear seat is more useful storage space which is accessed via the rear opening tail-gate – another very good feature.
Finally, our Trooper has blown-air heating, a lift-up elevating roof for added height when camping and sleeping, a wind-out awning, tow bar and not forgetting the fresh and waste water tanks.
Auto-Sleepers’ Timeless Classic Trooper Low Line
The Trooper has proved to be an outstanding seller for Auto-Sleepers and was produced for over 30 years – it is a timeless classic and still a very popular model, even today. Although it’s been produced for so many years, there’s still something special about a V.W. camper. It must be that they can be used as a car, a day-van or for extended holidays too – a true master of everything!
With the specification that this model enjoys, this could not be viewed as a basic, or even entry level, campervan. There’s plenty of room to carry 4 people in seat-belted seats and the “rock and roll” bed makes a comfortable double bed for 2. When sleeping more than 2 people, the fitted awning can accept a drive-away style awning for additional daytime living space or night-time sleeping compartment. If your hobby is cycling, the rear tailgate can support a 2-bike cycle rack, as could the fitted tow bar.
