We are often asked where we get our accessories so we compiled a list of some of the products we have purchased and use in our Vanagon. This is by no means a complete list. We purchase parts from Go Westy, Van Cafe, Van Again, and others too, but Amazon is really convenient!

If you are new to Vanagons or just want the best reference book on the planet, you need this book:


Auxiliary Battery Related
We installed an auxiliary battery with the Go Westy kit. We first used the battery similar to the one that Go Westy recommends. It gives you 50 amp hours and does a great job. You can see it listed first here:


More recently, we connected three of the UB1220 batteries together. You can buy them here and have them shipped to you. Amazon is great!:


We have also used this Odyssey battery in the past. It worked very well:


Here are a few other battery related items we use:

We love this little volt meter with 2 USB sockets. We leave it plugged in and it doesn’t run our battery down.


Our Streaming Setup
We mounted an iPad and use a HooToo router connected to a 256GB USB drive to stream our large collection of movies. Works like a charm!


Interior Lighting
We’ve used LED lights around the edges as well as magnetic puck lights. We also have two fluorescent stock lights.


Bottle Openers
Without question, the number one thing people ask about on our van is the exterior bottle opener. You can find several options here.


Reverse Camera and Dash Setup


Coffee Related
Vanagon dwellers need coffee. The Aero Press is our coffee maker of choice. You can’t beat it! If you try only one of the products we suggest, try the Aero Press. You won’t be sorry.
