We received two submissions from Stevan Springer (noganav on The Samba) from his Vanagon. First up is the front table used as a rear cabinet door as shown in the picture above. I’ve seen rear cabinet doors before, but I’ve never seen someone cannibalize their front table to make the mod. I guess if you don’t need your front table you can make it work. The rear cabinet door is quite small and adding a larger door is desirable. Nice job! Click through to see his rear sliding window mod.


This 1984 VW T25 was recently for sale in the UK. She is a Subaru conversion with an interesting two tone purple and white paint job. If you look closely you can see they painted the wheels purple too. All they need now is a new set of wheels to spruce her up, even if they go with the GoWesty rims. It looks like she sold for £6,650.00.



This double cab Syncro has a unique a hydraulic tipper bed that effectively turns it into a dump truck. The dark grey paint with roll bars and modified bumpers add some toughness to this VW truck. The extra large tires also add to that tough feel. I like the truck side view mirrors too. Where can I get one of these bad boys? Click through for more pictures.


I ran across this little beauty on Facebook. These are supposedly white snake skin door panels for a Vanagon, and the rest of the interior has been restored to match. Click through to check it out.



What happens when a Vanagon owners loves his log cabin so much he wants the same door on his Vanagon? This van looks crazy, but you have to admire the spunk of the owner. He even added some wood paneling to the side panel to complete the look. Click through to see the interior.


Here is a nice Vanagon flooring job. This user from The Samba decided to rip out the carpet and add two color bamboo flooring to his van. He did a great job. Click through for another pic.

Here’s a custom camper top for the back of a single cab Doka Truck courtesy of Vans of Berlin. She looks basic but gets the job done! It looks like the sides are locked in place so they likely open up. The pitched roof give it a homemade feel.


This is an interesting story of Frye, who converted a 1986 Westy into a budget micro cabin in the woods. It has a very old cabin feel complete with a wood burning stove. This one offers a different view of what van life can be. Click through for the full video.



We have seen a few A-Team themed Vanagons. This one comes courtesy of This is probably the nicest one we’ve seen so far. If you check out the website, you can see this van from another angle.

This side Vanagon kitchen setup looks like it fits perfectly behind the passenger’s seat. The sink appears below a flip top and likely has fresh and gray water tanks below. I would love to create this for my weekender!
