Sometimes you know what you want in life; the freedom to explore, to see the world at your own pace, in your style, to take off on adventures knowing you’ve got independence and reliability at your fingertips. A motor home gives you all of this, especially one built by Westfalia, the pioneers of motor homes and converted vans.
Back in the 1950’s Westfalia had a visit from an officer in the British Army on the Rhine; he went to them with a dream – could they convert his T1 so that he could use it as a motor home as well as a transporter? Westfalia could and they did, and such was the inspiration that they continually took it forward, and today can bring you the result of over 65 years of experience and know-how; the new Amundsen models.
The Amundsen 540D, the Amundsen 600E, the Amundsen 600D and the Amundsen 640E are the product of decades of expertise, with everything you need in a motor home. The living area is cosy and comfortable, the kitchen practical and functional; there’s a surprisingly roomy sleeping area and a fully modern bathroom. Add to that dependable technology and all those extras that bring these motor homes to the forefront.
