Around 1984, Holdsworth introduced a new model called the VW T25 / T3 Holdsworth Variety. This hightop camper featured a different interior than the standard VW camper. The most obvious different is the normal rear bed area was instead used for the kitchen, or storage lockers. Two flexi seats could be used to create a single or double bed.

This is one of the craziest ideas I’ve seen but I suppose it deserves a mention. This Vanagon has been completely outfitted in knitware. Who would want to drive this thing around like this? It turns out a couple of VW commercial vehicle employees spotted a classic bus treated in knitwear while visiting Thailand. They decided to replicate the bus. This is their finale product.

About 2500 hours went into the 100-pound-plus knit sweater for the unique T3, which can be admired in the Volkswagen Museum until the end of March.

Seriously? A museum?

These drawers under the rear bed caught my eye. There’s not much to say about them except they add some storage space to your Vanagon. Obviously, if you use the bed a lot this might cause a problem unless you use a mattress topper, but it looks good for every day use.



In 1986, Holdsworth introduced a new camper model called the VW T25 / T3 Holdsworth Vision. It was based on a Volkswagen factory hightop van, but the interior was quite different. The kitchen and storage lockers were in the back while the main cabin had an unusual setup. There was a fold away room divider between front and rear creating a separate toilet compartment.
