Is it just me or do the tires on this custom Synchro TDI huge? This thing looks like it could roll over just about anything it would come across. The camper top looks to have been modified with some sort of spoiler too. Very cool.

This may be a nice edition to any Westy or VW camper if you can figure out where to store the ladder. The upper bunk ladder makes it easy to get upstairs but where do you store it? Perhaps clamping it to the ceiling above the bed would work.

I just love how people hack up their Vanagons and create custom solutions for their needs. Check out how Titus A Duxass of the Club 80-90 Forums embedded his stove in the rear of his Vanagon. He built a drawer below the bed and his oven pulls out. This is perfect!

VW Bus "Schoko" mit Flügeltür - 04

Check out this unique side hatch. This early 1980’s Vanagon has dumped the sliding door in favor of a side hatch. Crazy! Click through for an interior pic.



Vanagon owners find all kinds of ways to get in the Christmas spirit. Here are just a few as seen on The Samba! I think I’d go for the wreath, but the lights look great too!

This Westy has had its rear cabinets modified. They brought the rear counter height up a bit and extended the rear closet. The two top access doors are now side access doors to a larger closet. You can also see they mounted the table mount to the other side of the bed. Interesting setup.


This thing looks awesome doesn’t it? It’s another extended dually double cab Doka truck. I found it on The Samba but there was only one picture. I sure wish someone would post more pics of this truck.


This 1987 Subagon Syncro Westfalia GL is gorgeous. The Subagon website lists it as having a Subaru SVX motor and includes new exhaust, clutch, pressure plate, adapter plate, timing belt and seals. The total build cost was nearly $50,000. I just love these full restoration projects. Click through to see more pictures that will make you drool.



We have featured the Continuous Camper here before because of his rooftop storage, but check out his custom interior cabinets. Very nice. He says he framed it with scrap wood but it looks great. If you want to see how he did it click through and hit the source link.


If you like Vanagons and travel you want to check out the Folksblogen blog. The couple who run the blog travel in a hot kiwi green vanagon and catalog their adventures online. The van used to be silver/gray, but they painted it and created a nice little travel van. Click through to see the interior.
