Readers Rides #24 VW T4

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

Todays readers rides come from Wim Koelman in Belgium, he shares with us his T4 and his history with the VW scene.

Make/Model: VW T4,
Colour: Green/Blue
Conversion: Westfalia

We live in Belgium and our story is about our Volkswagen T4 Westfalia California Generation which starts with a visit to AutoStadt in Wolfsburg in November 2000. We specially felt in love with that Generation Edition of this California and in May 2001 it was ours.

2 years later we made a little mistake in thinking that the bigger VW T4 Karmann Colorado was the ultimate camper, but after some years we decided to sell the Karmann and travel again with our California which we luckily had held. (more…)

The Ultimate Question - Which Volkswagen Van to go for?

Sunday, May 9th, 2010

The Ultimate Question - Which Volkswagen Van to go for?

I know I have mentioned this before, but as the weather starts to warm up I am really missing my van! I had planned to put the funds which we received from selling our T25 straight in to our next van project. However, I unfortunately had an attack of the ’sensibles’ as we needed to replace my struggling second car, a 1996 Toyota Starlet.

With the scrapage deal coming to an end we decided that we needed a reliable, comfortable car and that it made more sense (at the time) to buy a new car first and then replace the van later on. So we took our little Toyota down to be scrapped and in return, got a whopping £2000 off a brand new Mini! And I have to say, I am very impressed with the Mini, it’s small, fun and reliable. OK, I know it’s no Vintage VW but it does the job for getting to meetings and will take us where we need to go with no hassle (as boring as that sounds!). (more…)

Readers Ride of the Year 2009 - Vote Now!

Readers Ride of the Year 2009 - Vote Now!

We have had a wide variety of vans submitted in to the Readers Rides section throughout 2009 from pristine Split Screen Vans through to stunning T4’s with a whole load of T25 Work Vans, Bay Window Pickups and Custom Built Camper Vans in between. So I thought it was about time to figure out just which one is the best.

We have had photos of 16 VW Vans sent in during the last 12 months, each of them unique and loved dearly by their owners, but which one deserves the crown of the VW Camper Van Blog ‘Readers Ride of the Year 2009′?

The nominees for Readers Ride of the Year 2009 are shown below. Once you have had a good look through them, you can cast your vote at the bottom of this article. The winner will be announced on the 31st January 2010. (more…)

Sum Doood’s VW Camper Vans

Sum Doood's VW Camper Vans

This weeks guest post comes from Sum Doood, a regular reader of the VW Camper Van Blog and a member of the VW Camper Van Blog Facebook Group. In this article, Sum Doood tells of his lifelong dealings with VW Camper Vans:

In 1959 at the age of three somewhere in Gloucestershire I was introduced to my first VW, a Kombi in which the family took holidays in wildest Wales and highland Scotland. I remember sleeping over the engine and waking to dodge the overnight condensation dripping onto my ex-WD sleeping bag.

We progressed to a comparatively sophisticated Devon Caravette and in 1966 moved to Wales where, with our hip-displaced Labrador puppy, we lived for three very wet autumn months in an old, crudely converted and totally immobile Bedford bus, what some might call a non-starter home. Perhaps for adults it represented too much camping because shortly afterwards the Caravette was sold.

21 Awesome Flickr Photo Groups for VW Camper Van / Bus Enthusiasts

Whether it’s for inspiration for your own VW Van or just for fun, looking at other photos of VW Camper Vans and Buses is sometimes addictive. It’s great going through the ’show us yours’ sections on the forums and seeing what other people have done with their vans.

One of the best places to find images of VW Camper Vans is Flickr. Flickr is an online photo sharing site which allows the user to upload images to groups or to create their own groups. If you ever want to search for an image of something, it can normally be found on Flickr.

Recently, I started searching through the many VW Camper Van related image galleries that can be found on Flickr and here I share with you the best ones I have found:

Readers Rides #6: VW T4 Camper Van

Readers Rides 6 - VW T4 Camper Van

This weeks Readers Rides comes from Neal from York who shows us his Volkswagen T4 Camper Van:

I bought the van from www.C-M-C.org.uk in may 2007, after being a member on the t4forum for a while and finding out as much as I could about t4’s (I had previously owned a westfalia type 2 bay window van in the early 90’s so knew I wanted back into VW’s after a long time away from them.

I decided on an Ex AA as they have the 102bhp 2.5tdi engine and already have the window set up I wanted. and have the seat belt mounts in the back for the Multivan interior I wanted (eventually)
