1981-stretch

The first time I saw a stretch Vanagon I was blown away, but it is actually more common than you might think. A number of people have “stretched” the Vanagon by welding two of them together. We’ve seen the Vanalong, this Go Long, Vanagon Limo, and the Coyote Shuttle. This 1981 Vanagon stretch is a bit rough, but when you read the story of how Kyle Guthrie welded two Vanagons together and took a road trip while the weld was still warm, you realize just how special these are.

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.



Check out this seemingly normal VW T3. The video is entitled, “Airride” and appears to be a hydraulic installation with airbags of some sort. I’d love to know more.

We’ve seen a lot of dropped VW Vanagons, but this may be the lowest drop yet. This thing has hydraulics to drop it so it can likely go back up when it wants to. Check out how low this thing can go. It looks like it’s touching the ground.

full-trailer

We have seen several Vanagon trailers where the owner cuts off a chunk of the front end and uses the rest of the van as a trailer. What would happen if someone used the entire van as the trailer? Here you have it. This van showed up at several European shows a few years ago. It looks like they have removed the front wheels to use the entire van as the trailer.



We’ve seen Vanagon ambulances before. This one comes from Brussels Belgium. It is a fully loaded ambulance that has an original odometer reading of just 54.340 Km. Click through to see the interior.

Talk about a hack. This 1985 Vanagon has been customized to be a “Doka Clone.” It is currently for sale in California and has 163,000 miles on it. Everything works except the custom air conditioning. The description says, “VW 1985 Vanagon GL 1.9L CUSTOM, ” DOUBLE CAB DOKA CLONE “. My Grandfathers last custom vehicle. It has a 1.9L motor that was rebuilt in mid 2015 and now has only 30,000 miles on it. It’s in excellent running condition, and always maintained on mileage schedule. All the lights work perfect. The tires are at 85%. CUSTOM ADDED AC UNIT IS NON WORKING”. AC can be used if the AC pumps added again.”

This 1984 Leisuredrive Kamper T25 looks great! It’s white with blue stripes and appears to be in pretty good shape. The interior leaves a lot to be desired, but it’s still a great ride. It is currently for sale in the UK. Have a look.

Okay, I don’t have much information on this build, but it’s another stretch Vanagon. Although this is not an original idea, it’s always fun to see someone making a stretch Vanagon. Do you remember the Vanalong or the Vanagon Limo? This one appears to be a work in progress and could use a coat of paint, but it still looks great.

Is this the best Vanagon build ever? It certainly could be. There is so much to say about this Vanagon we could literally build an entire website around it. Luckily, someone already has. This is a fantastic build with so many mods and hacks it’s ridiculous. Just look at the picture above and admire the multitude of accessories, new bumpers, storage, etc., etc. The paint is new and she’s ready for the road. Click through to see the interior.
