I’ve seen this Vanagon online for quite awhile now, but I never noticed the outdoor shower hookups. Awesome! They nestled the hookup right next to all the other ports on the outside of the van. If you didn’t know any better you’d have to say it looks stock. Apparently this van was listed on eBay for $70,000. Yikes.

Here is a neat idea. CampervanCulture.com sells an upper bed guard for the Westfalia. It helps keep your stuff from falling off the bed and can help keep young children safe too. It requires that your van have certain slots already available so be sure to read the details. Head on over to their website for more info and ordering details.



This 1987 Westy got a serious overhaul of the rear cabinets. It looks like they created a much larger rear cabinet and an extra seat next to the stovetop. Could there be a toilet in there? Unfortunately, there is no information about this interior. Looks good though. Click through for more.

If you have a passenger Vanagon, but need a camper, you can certainly use creativity to accomplish what you want. This guy decided to customize his interior using a custom bed and plastic drawers. The bed flips up to provide lots of storage, and plastic drawers fill out the rest of his storage needs. Click through to see the interior up close.

This interior idea comes courtesy of mobmasker.com. The owner removed the refrigerator and opted for a top loading Dometic fridge that sits behind the passenger seat. This allowed them to create a large drawer under the stovetop. Nice job!

You don’t have to have a camper to camp in a Vanagon. YouTube user, Kirt Fitzpatrick, built his own custom doorway kitchen, in a non-camper, complete with a stove, water sprayer, swing-out table, and drawers. The build looks great and his video is oddly interesting. He does a complete cooking demo and shows you how he uses his kitchen while camping. Check it out.

We purchased the GoWesty Auxiliary Battery Kit back in 2007 and were very excited to have a house battery that would run all of our gadgets without draining the starting battery. The installation was easy, but the kit never lived up to its promise. We were going through batteries so often and couldn’t figure out why. We eventually discovered the kit was severely underpowered and designed poorly. GoWesty has since improved the kit with a larger solenoid, but the wire they use is still small so we opted for something a little better. Click through to see what we did.

Check out this VW conversion I spotted on CampervanLife. They took a Vanagon and turned it into a food truck trailer. They call it the Camper Cafe and it looks great. I wonder what they pull it with. This van was in pretty bad shape before they restored it, but they sure did a nice job. Click through for another pic and a link to see the restoration photos.
