Here is a hack that was sent in by its creator. He had a storage unit up top and didn’t want to spend the amount it would have cost for a ladder. Isn’t that usually the motivation for our hacks? He created a nice ladder of his own. He bought the materials and welded it together. The ladder is removable and there are no visible holes in the van.

This looks like a stock panel van but it has a couple of custom pieces. Instead of running boards, this guy installed custom pipes on the side of his van. What do you call them? Custom running pipes? He also has a nice front bumper guard.


I think we have seen this stretch Vanagon before, but this is a new pic from a different angle. The paint job looks the same, but they’ve added some custom wheels. This extended Vanagon has two sliding doors and lots of room. Making these extended stretch Vanagons is becoming a popular thing to do.




This T25 Transporter is incredibly low. The rustic look is awesome on this low rider even though it has a missing grill. If you want to see a bunch of very low VW’s, check out Slam Sanctuary. This is the only Vanagon I found, but the site is awesome!

Here is a nice Vanagon with a very large eyebrow. Frankly, I think this front grill mod should be called an “eyelid” but it appears I have already lost that argument. Most people paint the eyebrow the same color as the van, but this owner decided against it. His eyebrow is also much larger than most I’ve seen. This Vanagon has a nice body kit and rain guards for the windows too! Click through for another pic.

You can add a nice touch to your Vanagon by adding a rooftop rear spoiler. We have seen various kinds of Vanagon spoilers before, but this is the first time I’ve run across one for sale. The kit comes with the spoiler that is ready to paint, along with 4 fixing screws for the culls. Check out rhoen-bull.de for the particulars.

There are several different versions of Vanagons with side windows, but this one is unlike any other I’ve seen before. This VW T25 high top camper has a very slim side window. Whoever did the customization on this van did a great job. In addition to the slick side window, the rear body kit that goes right into the high top looks excellent!



We have seen similar vehicles before, but this is definitely rare. This Mercedes Unimog 416 vehicle is insane. It has a Vanagon caper on its back, and can get you to places no other vehicle could go. It is listed on Craigslist for $45,000. Is it worth it? Click through for more pics.

Here is a nice little hack made from PVC. You can hang a lantern or other light outside the van for those camping dinners. The picture is pretty self explanatory.



I just love these accessories for Vanagons. This van was for sale recently, and it features several GoWesty upgrades. The upgrade that caught my eye sits on the rear bumper. It’s a swing away arm tray and ladder. How else are you supposed to get up to that sky box? You can place a box on the tray for extra storage. Several retails sell these boxes, but check out GoWesty.com (here, and here). You can’t go wrong.
