Strange spec caddy

Postby dub_nutz » Thu Apr 16, 2015 8:00 pm

Had this 55 plate 1.9tdi in for a couple of dent repairs this week and this strange rear sunroof had us all confused.ive had my caddy for a few years now and worked on
many over the years and me and even the lads in the workshop have never seen this spec. Its a proper vw conversion and has a removable crossbar for a easier access.
Anybody know what its all about? heres a few pics

That was an optional extra "ladder flap"
Very rare in anything other than those green Caddys from that parts company I can't remember the name of.

In Ireland €331 option but also requires other sliding door making it nearly €1k option

Pricey option that,you would think vw would've made the rear hatch section out of a roof skin section instead of glass considering its
for work purposes?

I would say another money making scam from VW.
That option is based on price list for FL caddy. Possibly the pre FL ones didnt need two sliding doors.

My silver 2006 Caddy has it. It has one sliding door. I use it when carrying copper pipes etc, comes in useful.

Always thought it would be great in a camper conversion ?
