Hello, We're just about to buy our first campervan and have been googling wildly to see what the story is about it. However, there's nothing out there I can find. We're buying a 2005 Nissan Timberland Endeavour and whilst there's lots of info about Timberland and Timberland Renaults and Fiats there's zero on our van. Does anyone out there know anything about this vehicle? The dealer says there aren't many around and I'd have to agree with him! Thanks for any intel and advice. We're really looking forwards to realising an ambition we've had for years - it's toooo exciting!

Maybe try a 'timberland' search using the local search engine on Nissan forums

Welcome and good luck

or Movano (so info for Renault or Vauxhall could both be useful for the Nissan version)
Yes, Opel too if it's a european import.

Very disappointed they called it the Opel Movano. Would have been a great opportunity to bring back the Blitz name.

Yes, doubt it would go down too well. They used the name well into the 80's with the rebadged Bedford CF.

My old mans first camper was an Opel Blitz halftrack, scavenged after battle in North Africa. I think he probably just bunged a mattress in the back.

One of these would be funky - An Opel Blitzbus Ludewig Aero :)

Do you have a pic of it? Who's the dealer?
May be a Nissan small van conversion import from Japan, If so I wouldn't touch it, unless the price was really VERY attractive

Also badged as a Toyota, I understand.
Different engines and interiors.
They built a lot of them, so no problems with getting spares.
Did Timberland only convert pre-used vans..
Could you check it's history from Timberland?

Definately a Movano/Master type base :)

An Example - Nissan Timberland Endeavour

Thanks all who've replied and yes this is the very van we've bought - not sure if the price is attractive or not but we got a decent price reduction and some extra bits and bobs. It looks spotless inside with all original Timberland stuff and only 47000 on the clock. Drives really well and proper quiet for a 2005 model. Anyway, we're looking forwards to getting out and about but need to wait ages for hab check, service, MOT etc. -6 weeks, apparently the whole world and his/her dog is buying a campervan! Cheers all, look forward to joining in the chat.

looks good. I had a 2010 Master and thought it a very nice drive - best of all the vans I have had :)
