Volkswagen T25 / T3 Devon Dart Camper Model History

1984 Devon Dart Elevating Roof Camper

Circa 1984 Devon introduced a new “special” edition model called the T25 / T3 Volkswagen Devon Dart. It had a new design of elevating roof called Devon “Aerospace” pop top roof. The interior layout was based on the Devon Moonraker with cupboards along the side behind the drivers seat and the rear seat converted into a 3/4 width double bed. However the upholstery and furniture colours were updated with “designer” ultra modern designs. The Devon Dart was available with water cooled diesel and petrol engine options.
