VW T3 Eurec Cassandra 

Volkswagen T25 / T3 Eurec Cassandra Camper Model History

VW T3 Eurec Cassandra Camper

VW T25 Devon Moonraker Eurec Cassandra Camper

VW T25 Eurec Cassandra Camper

 Between 1980 and 1988 a Dutch company called Eurec built campers based on the LHD VW T25 / T3 using parts supplied by Devon from the UK.  The layout and specification were the same as for the T25 / T3 Volkswagen Devon Moonraker. Based on the left hand drive VW T25 / T3 Transporter this model was named the Eurec Cassandra and was sold to customers in Europe including Netherlands, France, Germany and Austria. Initially it was only available with a Devon side elevating “Double Top” pop top roof. On later models it was also possible to specify a high top fixed roof option. The interior had cupboards along the side behind the drivers seat and the rear seat converted into a 3/4 width double bed. The engine options for the earlier versions used either the 1600 cc or the 2000 cc CU air cooled engines.  Circa 1982 the Eurec Cassandra was available with the new water cooled diesel engine option and circa 1983 the petrol air cooled engine options were replaced with petrol water cooled engine options. I have limited information on this model so please if you have any additional information, photos, manuals etc send me a copy and I will add them to this page ;-)

Specifications

The equipment used and specifications were the same as for the Devon Moonraker.

The main difference being that as these were left hand drive vehicles so the sliding door was on the opposite site and hence the furniture reversed.

Also whilst the poptop version used the same roof as the British Devon Moonraker the hightop versions used different roofs than those that were fitted to the British Devon versions. I am not sure which company supplied these at this time.
