VW Camper Inspirational Interiors: Bespoke and Custom Interior Designs

by David Eccles

 

One of the main attractions of the VW Bus, apart from its iconic looks and rugged reliability, is the way owners take the bus to heart and into their family, and set about personalizing them through both exterior and interior design and styling. Over the years, most campers have seen extensive use and, unless you are lucky to find a complete original-condition camper, then some work will need to be done to bring the interior to the standard you want.

VW Camper, The Inside Story: A Guide to the Various Camping Conversions and Interior Layouts Used for VW Campers 1951-2005

by David Eccles

This book documents and celebrates the many different camping conversions built on the Volkswagen Transporter and Microbus base across five decades. Until the advent of the new T5 generation in 2004, Volkswagen never made a factory-fitted camper, preferring to approve conversions carried out by firms such as Westfalia, Devon, Dormobile, Sundial and Danbury. However, many other different companies offered conversions on the VW base and the models produced by over forty different converters are described and pictured here.

Campervan Crazy: Travels with My Bus: a Tribute to the VW Camper and the People Who Drive Them

By David Eccles and Cee Eccles

'A camper is not just a camper. It's whatever you want it to be.' Introduced in the 1950s, the campervan was designed to be multi- functional. Since then, it has taken on a life of its own, or rather, it has been taken into the lives of its owners. Some treat them as an extension of their home, others undertake epic journeys in them, across desert and sea, through Europe, Asia and Africa. Some strap surfboards to the roof and head for the nearest beach, while others soup up the engines and take them drag racing in Santa Pod. All will spend hours restoring and customising them and even more talking about them with fellow bus owners.

Traveling with the VW Bus & Camper

By David Eccles and Cee Eccles

Few realize that the VW bus, generally associated with the freewheeling sixties, was initially designed as a basic delivery van to aid post-WWII reconstruction efforts. Introduced more than fifty years ago, the VW bus outgrew its utilitarian beginnings and transformed the family vehicle into a mobile home away from home. Complete with roll-out beds, stoves, showers, and even kitchenware, the VW camper was marketed as a luxury getaway vehicle, the perfect means to trade the stress of city life for a weekend in the countryside. VW bus owners cherish their vehicles and fully incorporate them into their lives: some treat them as an extension of their house, while others undertake epic journeys in them, across desert and sea. Some strap surfboards to the roof and head for the nearest beach, and still others soup up the engines and take them drag racing. All will spend hours restoring and customizing them and even more time talking about them with fellow bus owners. Traveling with the VW Bus and Camper is an exuberant tribute to this passion, and, of course, to the VW bus itself. The book traces the cult of the camper, from family errands to vacation home to design icon. Chapters engagingly describe road trips from England to Afghanistan to India and back; ad campaigns that sell the VW bus lifestyle; stock as well as highly customized vans; and weddings and other family events that feature buses in their ceremonies. Whether you've owned a camper for years or merely coveted the colorful van in your neighbor's driveway, Traveling with the VW Bus and Camper is a great addition to your own personal library or a friend's.

The Volkswagen Bus

By Malcolm Bobbitt

It is sixty years since the idea of VW's Transporter was conceived by Dutchman Ben Pon after seeing motorized trolleys, known as plattenwagen, conveying components around the British-managed Wolfsburg factory in the mid-1940s. Pon's idea was initially dismissed but reconsidered by Heinz Nordhoff when appointed VW's chief executive in 1948. The Transporter changed little in concept throughout decades of production, and it is a tribute to its original notion that it remains in production in Brazil, nearly six decades after its postwar German debut. This thoroughly researched book explores the VW bus story, from its origins to the present day; the history of this familiar and much-loved vehicle is chronicled in an evocative style. This entirely new edition of the acclaimed book first published in 1997 includes the story of the world's most famous camper and includes full specifications, production details and buying advice.

VW Bus: Custom Handbook

By Laurence Meredith

Though first published in 1994, this little gem is still a classic must-have for any VW Bookshelf. At its time it was the first book of its kind on the market, with advice on buying a bus and detailed sections of restoration with step by step guides for rust treatment, panel replacement and prepping and painting as well as an overview of history, spec changes etc. Performance Mods are also covered and info on engine tuning and lowering is still as informative today as back then. The section on Cal Look and custom is now a fascinating look back at the scene just a few short years ago. Though fashions and tastes have moved on and other books have updated and expanded on details and specs, this book remains a classic. And part of it's appeal now lies in pictures of buses several years ago, many of which are still going strong! Period photos and brochure shots sit alongside contemporary photos giving the book a strong visual appeal as well as informative and detailed text.

This budget priced little gem takes a US perspective and showcases lots of lovely buses. The actual historical background and information is already well covered in other books but it's nice to see it from another perspective and the author's knowledge and passion is clear throughout. Unlike many other titles, it does include all generations of bus, including Vw Concept Microbus, so the whole community is covered. I especially enjoyed the chapter on Community, and the profiles of differing types of bus owner: The Purist, The Authority, The Cheap Fixer, The Radical Changer, The Perfectionist, The Clueless - yes you'll recognize them all! The Photography is excellent throughout showcasing not just original condition buses but rusty rats and lurid paint schemes and people using buses just to enjoy them. Bussing in the USA!

Volkswagen T3: Transporter, Caravelle, Camper and Vanagon 1979-1992

By Richard Copping

It has taken some time for Volkswagen's third-generation Transporter to gain the iconic status freely awarded to the first-generation 'Splittie' and its successor, the 'Bay'. Now, however, the T3, also variously called the T25, 'Wedge' or [less flatteringly] the 'Brick', is well and truly established as part of the classic VW scene. In part, this has been down to the soaring prices and limited availability of the earlier models, but perhaps too the T3 has finally been recognized as a worthy successor to those venerable classics, and maybe even cherished as the last of the air-cooled Volkswagens.
