Quick&easy – Bimobil LB 355 on VW T6

Bimobil, test, tip, vehicle

They have become rare, the construction vehicles on the Volkswagen Transporter. The pick-up specialist Bimobil from Oberpframmern has recently presented a chic alcove as a set-up on the VW T6.

With a vehicle length of just under six meters you can classify the also visually successful T6-Festaufbau, consistently designed as a four-person mobile, quite compact. The LB 355 has two longitudinal beds in the alcove, a round seat group in the stern, a wet cell with separate shower, a kitchen and a bicycle garage.

The basis is the VW Transporter T6, which Bimobil offers either as an original chassis with a full air suspension on 3.5 tons, or alternatively on the Al-Ko chassis. Advantage of the original chassis: it can also be supplied optionally with all-wheel drive 4Motion.

The living cabin is typical for Bimobil, in a bright real wood veneer and is designed for a travel crew of four persons despite the compact dimensions of the vehicle. Bimobil has been frost-proof, thus also consistently built for winter operation. A heated double floor begins in the area of the kitchen and sanitary facilities and ensures with its continuous height of 26 centimeters to the stern for winter suitability.

In the middle area, fresh water and waste water tank are sheltered from frost. In order to allow a rear garage for at least two bicycles, the cab floor has also been lowered. By this we reach the necessary height for use as a bicycle garage.

The rear garage is very accessible through a large external flap and an additional side flap. The sanitary area is located opposite the entrance. The shower can be separated by a three-part sliding door from the wash and toilet room.

The equipment of the wet cell is equipped with an enamelled steel washbasin and a Thetford cassette toilet. On the passenger side you find the kitchen block with two-burner cooker, sink and a built-in 97 liter refrigerator holds. In the rear there is a comfortable round seat, which can be equipped with three-point belts for two additional seats in the direction of travel.

The LB 355 is at the customer’s request also available with a change-over device – with or without a passage to the driver’s cab of the VW T6. The prices for the Bimobil LB 355 start from 98.450, – Euro (£ 83.600).
