We live in a fast-paced world. That makes it great to get away for once, even if it's only on the weekends. You can then be completely human again and feel lucky in that regard. Well… and then you, as a true enthusiast, need a hotel on wheels. One like this Fiat 850 T Camper Van from 1974. A versatile mini bungalow.

A Fiat 850 T is very special in itself and therefore also has an exclusive value. The value for Elleke is really only in the sheer pleasure she experiences with the camper. She bought the beautiful Fiat two years ago from an Amsterdam owner. After some technical adjustments - such as an electronic ignition - and a new interior, the car was able to beautify the Dutch road again. In addition to a travel car, it is also a passenger car, versatility everywhere.
If you look at the photos of the Fiat 850 T Camper Van, you start to philosophize. You can go wherever you want, do whatever you want. That is absolute freedom. Now you could say that you can do that with all motorhomes. Of course, but the Fiat is a very special possession. Pleasures for Elleke that are priceless. We as classic enthusiasts share that feeling.
Elleke: “For me, it's just a very nice hobby car that shares parts with the well-known Fiat 600 in terms of technology. I have various brochures and brochures of the car where I can look back on the 70s. It is much more fun if we go through it to look at the nostalgic glasses. With this Fiat 850 T Camper van I bring history back to life. Along the way I get a lot of enthusiastic reactions to my 'pet'. That makes every ride a source of pleasure. It's a beauty. It is a privilege for me to be on the road.”
