Dotty is our second Brazilian Type 2. Like Tilly she has the classic flat four engine (complete with ‘proper’ classic VW soundtrack!) but benefits from fuel injection which makes these Brazilians more economical than the original German versions.
Dotty was also born in 2005 in the Sao Bernard do Campo plant before coming over to Danbury for conversion to a campervan with the top of the range ‘Rio’ spec.
Finished in classic Niagarablau over white with light pine interior and blue upholstery she’s another lovely looking camper and you’ll find people ambling over in campsites to have a closer look. Also fitted with a cab heater which takes care of the cool in the mornings Dotty has a lifting roof with accommodation for 2 children upstairs with 2 adults in the fold out bed.
Dotty has seating for 4, and the seat belt set up comprises of three 3 point seat belts, the final rear seat belt being a lap belt.
