Vintage Volkswagen Campers

Volkswagen never made a camper themselves, but almost from the start outside companies realized how easy it would be to craft a fully functional camper based on a VW Kombi bus or Panel Van. Numerous camper conversion companys; including Westfalia (sometimes spelled Westphalia), Sundial, Riviera and Dormobile produced a wide range of camper bus styles, complete with dining tables, ice boxes, stoves, sinks, child hammocks and fold-out beds. Jalousie Windows, awnings, changing rooms, tents, portable toilets and camp trailers were also sold as accessories to further enhance the family's camping comfort. Until around the mid 1960's most of these camper interiors were made of thin plywood and veneered wooden panels to conserve weight. But around 1964 more and more of this camper cabinetry consisted of durable plastic laminate sheets glued over light-weight wooden panels. Some camper configurations included split front seats which allowed easy walk-through access between the cab and camper areas. Other models included a "sub hatch" or "pop top" in the roof which improved ventilation and head room, and in some models (like the Dormobile) even provided extra sleeping bunks. A vintage volkswagen camper is a fun and very practical way to take the family camping, in your very own "home on wheels".
