    Dormobile Australia

    Just found a VW Kombi Dormobile with an interesting sticker on the dash.
    Dormobile Australia, Wiluna Street, Fyshwick, Canberra ACT.
    1972 Volkswagen Kombi Van/Minivan | Cars, Vans & Utes | Gumtree Australia Gunnedah Area - Gunnedah | 1049318687

    Some more info here including a few other local conversions Trakka, Swagman etc. VW Campervan Conversion Types

    So were any Australian Land Rover Dormobiles made or are they all imports ?

    Still looking out for one, the one in Tassie needs a lot of work (the kids would have left home by the time I finished it.....).

    Hi Colin,
    I spotted these Australian Dormobile badges a few months ago, I too wondered if they were converted here or just shipped over.

    Of course if you want a ready to drive dormobile you could go for this one

    Purchase used 1970 Land Rover 109 SIIA Dormobile VERY RARE and VERY COMPLETE in Aurora, Colorado, United States, for US $159,000.00

    I remember reading somewhere that there was licence production of Kombi Dormobiles in Australia. I've never seen anything to suggest that Land Rover Dormobiles were made here though. There are very few around and all the ones I know of were imported.

    Just been browsing the Dormobile site in the UK.
    If you start pricing up a modern conversion you can start to justify the $159,000
