Nice 307D Camper but....

This would be a great camper but I gotta imagine that it would be painfully slow. Its a low mileage example. The speedometer only goes up to 80. Same engine as a 240D. Maybe that's part of the low mileage reason?
It's both on CL and fleabay.

It's a 207d. There was a recent thread about it. It was on Ebay with a different owner earlier this year. I had the 5 spd version under a large Class A motorhome and had no trouble getting 65mph on the flat. Don't know about the 4 spd.

Oops. Thought it was a 307D. Are you sure the thread was about the same van? One I remember was for an early 60's van.

Red face You were right about it Kerry Edwards.

You're right K. E. I did a search and sure enough, found your thread about it.
(Even before your last reply with the link to it.)
It's being sold by a different owner now? My guess must have been just too slow for him.

I'm not sure about the too slow part. I'd like to know the final gear ratios of the 4 spd and 5 spd and the rear end ratio. I'd be slow in the mountains but maybe it would be ok on the flats.

That's definitely a keeper. I'd love to have that for retirement in Europe.

Thank you Lietuvai for savin my ass for sure!! I was bidding on that bastard not realizing its covered with bits of rust at every window seal. Interesting how level of seller's honesty varies between fleabay and craigs.
