It looks like someone started an ambitious Vanagon conversion, but gave up. This van was apparently listed as abandoned. Perhaps whoever started this conversion got in over his head.



We all know Vanagon are used for so many different tasks. We have seen Vanagon fire trucks, lunch wagons, dump trucks, ambulances, and more, but this is the first time I have come across a Vanagon school bus. This one has the right colors going on, and check out the signage and extra rear mounted flashing lights. Perfect.



This 1987 Vanagon is not actually a Westy (I think). It is apparently a conversion, and I have to admit to being a little confused about its history. It appears to be a stock Vanagon that was going to be converted. They painted the van and installed the Westy interior. When they cut the hole for the pop top, they muffed it, and ended up created a rag top Vanagon with a Westy interior and luggage rack. So this hacked Westy is unique. Click through for more.



This custom VW T3 truck looks like it has a barn on its back. I almost named it the barn truck, but it is apparently used for a fruit and vegetable business. I love the custom back with the roll up doors.


This is an interesting camper that was recently for sale. It’s a 1983 Transporter Multimobil unlike anything we’ve seen in the states. Surprisingly, it doesn’t have all that much room inside. It looks to be in decent shape although it could use a wheel upgrade. Someone did take the time to install Recaro seats in it. Click through for the interior pics.


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.



If you have a passenger Vanagon, but need a camper, you can certainly use creativity to accomplish what you want. This guy decided to customize his interior using a custom bed and plastic drawers. The bed flips up to provide lots of storage, and plastic drawers fill out the rest of his storage needs. Click through to see the interior up close.


You don’t have to have a camper to camp in a Vanagon. YouTube user, Kirt Fitzpatrick, built his own custom doorway kitchen, in a non-camper, complete with a stove, water sprayer, swing-out table, and drawers. The build looks great and his video is oddly interesting. He does a complete cooking demo and shows you how he uses his kitchen while camping. Check it out.



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.



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.
