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!


Vanagon Screens

If you own a hard top you already know how difficult it is to get good screens to fit your van. Most people have to use velcro or magnets to get screens around the sliding windows. This guy named Glenn has a new take on screens and they look solid.



This Syncro is shown at the Volkswagen Club of Pakistan. Someone named Rehan Bhai apparently owns this VW Syncro T3. It has the most interesting front ornament I’ve ever seen. It appears to be a set of bull horns. You can see a bar bolted into the front of the van which supports the bull horns. It also includes a net of some kind. I have no idea what the net is for, but it’s an interesting ornament for sure.



Food Trucks and lunch wagons are hot right now and the Vanagon is not to be left out. The Borco-Höhns Verkaufswagen has not hit the states, but there are several variations overseas. Le Cabu is a mobile cafe in Germany, and I wish he could pull up in my neighborhood.

Le Cabu has a surfboard on top as the signage, and it looks like he has a solar panel above the cab to recharge his batteries. Inside, he has everything you need to run your cafe. More images after the jump.




Many Vanagon owners install roof racks on their ride to help carry extra equipment. Some owners go for the simple approach, while others go for large baskets and boxes. Pictured here is a large ARB rack with high jack attached. What is your roof rack choice? Click through for several examples.



This read truck looks like a stock double cab Vanagon, but looks can be deceiving. We’ve seen this beauty before, but I just ran across more high quality photos from VW Vortex that are worth a second look. This first rate Vanagon to truck conversion would make every Vanagon fan drool. Click through for many more pictures.

The pictures say it all with this custom VW T3 Doka. Everything on this double-cab has been redone. It has a custom bed liner and that’s just the start. The interior has been completely re-upholstered including the seats and doors. This double-cab even has a custom console complete with meters, as well as a wooden steering wheel. Click through to see this beauty up close.


This Vanagon owner decided not to take the easy way out by ordering a GoWesty bumper. Vanagon owner, Troy Smith, instead decided to make his own bumper. According to the description on Flickr, he plans to make a new swing away bike rack system. Click through for another pic.



The creativity of Vanagon owners never ceases to amaze me. Check out this Vanagon semi-truck. The image name was “gooseneck” so perhaps that’s her name. This is one of the craziest hacks I’ve ever seen. I don’t know anything about it, but just happened to run across it on The Samba. All Vanagon owners should just sit back and admire the creativity!



Our most popular hack to date is our outside bottle opener. We get the most comments on it by far. Many other Vanagon owners have other ideas on where to place their bottle openers. This one is mounted on the side pillar. Click through to see several more.
