it’s a very nice and cool RV as you can see in the photos and is a pleasure to own and drive, it’s based on a Mercedes truck official Freightliner partnership truck chassis for the Europe market with a Westfalia interior. Some similarities and sourcing for interior was Westfalia from the factory though much more robust and stronger than Westy for VW vans. They are seldomly available in the US, rarely kept in this condition and are typically heavily modified. This original 508D was always taken care of, and that is all documented with receipts and binders that come with it when you will buy it. It’s like a time capsule from the Mercedes factory in Düsseldorf, Germany in 1977 where it was made. In fact Düsseldorfer and Düdo (pronounced “DOO-doh”) are the semi-official nicknames for these campers in Europe.
Runs and drives well.
Engine runs cool and smooth, shifts smoothly, drives straight, stops well too.
Doesn’t leak fluids. Doesn’t smoke.
Tune-up, oil change, exhaust system and muffler and several parts (some lights and sensors, etc.) replaced in 2022.
7 new tires in 2022, we don’t drive it much, so they have not had much use. Certainly less than 100 miles on them. ALL 7 mounted tires are 6 weeks old and have manufacturer DOT (Dept of Transportation) official date of manufacture stamp on them of 4521, meaning the 45th week of 2021. Their age in useful life is calculated from the day they are purchased, not manufactured. It is common to see new tires being sold with 2-3 year dates of manufacture. We insisted from the tire company that ours were from late-2021. And that they would be Heavy Duty 16-ply rubber, not 12-ply, not 10-ply, not 8, etc.
