    Default Mazda Bongo Camper Vans

    Anyone imported a Mazda Bongo Camper Van? Are they hard to come by? Do you recommend them? Still searching for my dream camping machine!

    I've never heard of seen of any of these. Yes they must be, unless it is a common engine I think it may be difficult for parts.

    Did you find your camper yet? I've seen some Hiace Campers in the Surrey area.

    Digging up an old thread here because I have become obsessed with these vans. I'm going to be shopping for one for personal use this week.

    Here's a very cool version http://www.pistonheads.co.uk/sales/1006764.htm

    Actually seems like a pretty practical vehicle for day to day use. 4WD, small 2.5L diesel, and that factory pop top is a pretty cool feature.

    Anyone here have opinions on these ? Ben I think I seen you mention them over at Delica.ca one time ?

    wow! William - that is totally AWESOME! Love it. I can't wait till you find the right one, get impressions, and I can come and see it. Maybe you can even rent it to me! Seriously, I'd do that for sure!

    Interesting but what do these vehicles actually look like stock and what features do they have? William's link showed a cool conversion which is a huge amount of $!

    Areeb, there are enough of them around already camperized. I'm just going to wait for one suitable in auction. Here's an example of one in stock form http://exchange.goo-net.com/usedcars...100513003.html

    The man in this commercial is super famous in Japan (but can't recall his name). Unlike North America, superstars in Japan also make commercials. And, we all know the "Lost in Translation" thing...there is loads of money in commercials in Japan.
    On the note of Bongos, they are popular in the UK and have sent one over there.

    That's interesting Steve, I did not know that.

    I am still looking for my Bongo van, yet to find one suitable for me. Fingers crossed one will come along soon, so I can enjoy the camping season with one of these.
