The Vanagon cigarette lighter is a quirky part of the van. It gets loose and easily breaks after repeated use. We have shown you how we strengthened our loose cigarette lighter plug, and we use USB adapters to charge our equipment, but Camp Westfalia has an even better idea. They have published a step by step guide to show you how to install a permanent 12 volt USB plug in place of the lighter. Click through for more.

This expedition Syncro has a unique rear window. They apparently replaced the rear hatch and side windows with diamond plated steel, then cut a new hole for a smaller slider window. Awesome! This Syncro also has a huge reverse light and roof racks. Very cool!


Check out this party doka that is posted on The Samba. Their website seems to be out of commission so I can’t tell if it is for rent, but it’s an interesting use of a VW Doka. She has a table and booth seats on the back with speakers above. Very cool. Click through for another pic.

The yellow stripe on this 1990 Tristar Syncro truck caught my eye. It is an interesting two-tone paint job if you can call it that. It may just be more of a thick yellow stripe. It does have some nice driving lights on the front lower grill and semi-truck side view mirrors, but beyond that it’s a normal Syncro truck. Check out many more pictures of this Syncro in the website. The interior is light gray which means this truck likely had a color change.


There is so much to love about this rugged high top. It appears to be somewhere in Germany as it is appearing in this forum. All she needs is a new set of wheels and this would be a winner. I wish we had some interior pics, but check out the winch on the front bumper and the driving lights on the roof. This ride is ready for all off roading adventures!

Remember the Island Hoppers Vanagon on Magnum P.I.? I do. All she needs is a new set of wheels and she’s good to go.

This custom interior was featured on GoWesty’s Flickr account as part of a contest. I love this interior. It is homey and obviously used. Whoever built this interior put a lot of TLC into it. Click through for another pic.

So this Vanagon owner is proud of the way he removed the refrigerator to add more shelf space. You can see the diagram above. But what caught my eye was the magazine rack. I’ve never seen a magazine rack in a Vanagon before, but you can see it right behind the passenger’s seat. You can click through to see one more pick of this van with nothing in it.

I love this custom cabinet I found on CampervanCulture.com. First of all, if you haven’t been to CampervanCulture.com, get over there and check out their vans. I love how this custom cabinet is open in the back. That way, when you open the rear hatch you can access everything inside. When the rear hatch is closed, the closet appears to be closed. Very nifty. Click through for another interior shot.

This 1990 Volkswagen Vanagon Weekender is owned by Volker Weiss, a real estate pro on Maui. His van is powered by a Subaru engine and as you can see, it has many upgrades. How would you like to cruise around Maui in this beauty? Volker says he had some rust issues so his van is currently being re-worked and will get a brand new paint job. Click through to see a flood of pics of this Vanagon.
