For Sale: 1991 Volkswagen Bus in Portland, Oregon

Vehicle Description


VOLKSWAGEN LT28 BUS (Long Version, High Roof)

Even Germans would be running doors just to get access to a vehicle like this.

Speaking of German, It was imported from Germany not long ago and is Oregon plated and ready to go in America.


Ever thought about how nice it would be if a Vanagon would grow to a XXL version where you can stand upright in it. Your wish has come true. I am 6foot and I can stand comfortably in the living room. Despite its size, it is as agile and maneuverable as your standard camper van. Runs 18 miles on the gallon of DIESEL and is in collectors condition for the next 30+ years to come.

We have here not just a rare but also a super cool Truck with a trendy color combination. Most spots where you would usually find rust are spotless due to its previous owners courtesy and love put to it.

The build out in the back could be updated if you have modern preferences.

It can be minimalisticely used since the bare basics like top/side shelving and storage compartment on the front are mounted, a dresser is right next to the sliding door and the linoleum floor is still functional. A sink with a faucet is in the minikitchen too but would need plumbing and a pump connection to run it (1 gallon tank only).

Everything what I have not mentioned in this description is simply NOT there, like:

  • Gray/Black water tank

  • Grid power connection/wiring whatsoever (the socket is european and just there to prevent water leakage)

  • Blinds

  • Roof window or vents

  • Refrigerator

  • Bedding 

  • Bathing

  • Toilet

I think that is about it.

However, besides me trying to provide you with every possible detail about it, there is the chance that I missed something. 

Problem - Solution = you ask me as many questions as you like to B-)

There is some information coming so keep going ahead.

Absolute NO RUST!!!

Some hard facts about it:

Transmission is a Synchronized 5 Speed manual transmission bolted on a large 2.4 L inline 6 cylinder DIESEL motor. Gliding down the Highway with 60-65 is doable but should anyway only be done in a hurry. (Campers are never in a hurry right ;-)

  • Rearview camera with a separate Screen

  • Modern updated radio (hands free calls, Front USB, AM/FM)

  • 12V + slow and fast USB Charger for Driver on top of the dash (nobody likes cable dangling around ;-), same USB Charging setup for the Passenger.

  • Regular size cup holder

  • Updated headrests

  • trailer hitch (European ball) rated to 2000kg/4400lbs for braked trailer (no e-brake or air or hydraulic coming from the truck) 750kg/1650lbs for no brakes trailer, tung weight 100kg/220lbs. 

  • Rotor/Pad brakes in front, drum breaks in rear. 

For those of you who are worried about servicing or maintaining it, no worries that's what just was done on it :

  • Motor Oil change with filter

  • Transmission Oil change

  • Axle Oil change

  • Coolant new

  • Air filter

  • Both Diesel filter

  • Head Cover gasket

  • All glow plugs

  • Main Timing belt

  • Pump timing belt

  • Serpentine belt

  • Water pump

  • thermostat

Some special knowledge about it :

LT stands for Lasten-Transporter which means Load-Transporter so you can tell it was,  back in the day, designed for the working people who had to carry/haul heavy loads. The 28 right after the LT indicates the gross capacity of the vehicle which is in this case, 2.8 tons or about 6173 lbs. The Transmission/Motor configuration was, back in the day, built in cooperation with VOLVO and the bottom end (Block) is the same on Diesel and Gas Engines on these types. In Germany and all around Europe, because of that clever engineering, it is known and appreciated as an almost undestroyable and very reliable Engine.
