T4 or T5 VW transporter


New Overlander
Jun 24, 2021
We are planning to travel from South to North America. We are wondering what will be the best VW camperbus to travel with: A T4 transporter from 2002 or a T5 transporter from 2012? Both have more or less the same amount of KM. We heard that the T4 is far easier to get repaired. Then we need to take into consideration which spareparts are easier to buy in South and Central America. Of course, the T5 might be in a better condition, because it is newer.. Any experience to share? Thanks!
