Many Vanagons have ladders. Ladders add functionality and character to the Vanagon. Sometimes ladders are mounted on the back hatch, and other times they are mounted on the side. Sometimes they have additional equipment mounted to it, other times it remains empty. What is your preferred ladder placement? Click through for a few examples.



This Syncro Doka double cab truck is insane. It has so many hacks, but my favorite is the steel plated roof rack. It is housing a spare tire or two, and a set of driving lights. This monster also has a heavy duty external sun visor, a winch, and semi truck side mirrors. The custom rear compartment looks pretty heavy duty too. This looks like a work truck turned into an insane toy.


This gorgeous orange Transporter has so many upgrades it’s hard to count them. The custom top, body kit, grill eyelid and wheels are just a few goodies to start. What about the custom side view mirrors? He has covered the rear windows and added some sort of vent to the sliding door. The clear turn signals and rain guards round out this orange beauty.

Here is a nice Vanagon with a very large eyebrow. Frankly, I think this front grill mod should be called an “eyelid” but it appears I have already lost that argument. Most people paint the eyebrow the same color as the van, but this owner decided against it. His eyebrow is also much larger than most I’ve seen. This Vanagon has a nice body kit and rain guards for the windows too! Click through for another pic.



Like most Vanagon owners I had wind noise coming from my wing window (the triangle window on the front door). I inspected the window seal and it looked like it was perfectly sealed against the window, yet I still got wind noise at speeds over 40 MPH. I thought perhaps the noise was coming from the door seals so I placed some weather stripping around the door jam, but I still got the wind noise. Click through to see how I solved it once and for all.

I wonder what this thing is called? Vanabus or Busagon?

What in the world is this? It looks like the Mystery Machine without the middle. Nice hack.



This otherwise normal looking Doka truck has a cut out from the cab to the bed. I’ve never seen one of these before, but it looks like it may be used with a camper top. What do you think? Have you seen this before?


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.



We have seen similar vehicles before, but this is definitely rare. This Mercedes Unimog 416 vehicle is insane. It has a Vanagon caper on its back, and can get you to places no other vehicle could go. It is listed on Craigslist for $45,000. Is it worth it? Click through for more pics.
