The 4X4 Varios do come up occasionally, there is one on ebay now, crew cab variant.


Went to see a vario LWB yesterday Peter, was a bit overwhelmed at the sheer length/height, total external length 23 foot 3 inches.

I bet the panel van vario 4x4's never come up though Peter.

Must have been changed as it would have had double rears when built surely.

Depends on the build spec, Paul.

Here's the ebay crew cab 4X4:

That was the 814 ELWB I guess, longer than ours, especially at the rear overhand.

Ours is under 8metres.

How long is your vario Peter.


23 foot 3 inch equates to a fraction over 7 metres. That was from the front bumper to the rear one.


I think after driving the Murvi at 5.59 metres it seemed absolutely enormous. I was a bit overwhelmed at the sheer physical size, I don't know why, our Hymer was 8.33 metres.
