VW T3 Danbury Coronet 

Volkswagen T25 / T3 Danbury Coronet Camper Model History

Dawsons Danbury VW T25 Coronet Camper

Circa 1984 Dawson Danbury introduced the T25 / T3 Volkswagen Danbury Coronet. It had a side elevating pop top roof initially. On later models it was also possible to specify either a tin top or a high top fixed roof option. The layout consisted of swivelling driver and passenger seats with cupboards along the offside wall. Incorporated into the side cupboards were a 2 burner stove and grill, sink and drainer and a fridge. The rear rock n roll seat converted into a double bed.

Note that during the production period of this model various changes were made to the specification including changes to upholstery materials, electrical control panels, furniture design etc. Where possible I will try and show examples of any updates and the approximate date of any change in the descriptions below.
