Volkswagen Bus / Vanagon for sale
The Volkswagen Bus-Vanagon was once a camper's dream van that was produced between 1980-1991. Based on Volkswagen buses, they were more of a camper than a bus. Here are features that make the Volkswagen Bus-Vanagons unique:
The Volkswagen Bus-Vanagon is ready for adventures
The Volkswagen Bus-Vanagon replaced the bus in 1980. Available as a full camper and a Volkswagen Weekender model, both have the same dimensions and sleep four adults. The full camper has a stove, sink and refrigerator. The Volkswagen Weekender doesn’t have those features, but is more spacious, with seating for seven.
The Volkswagen Bus-Vanagon's interior upgrade
The interior layouts of the various pop-top camper versions of the Volkswagen Bus-Vanagon remained mostly consistent. From simulated wood grain cabinets, ceiling covers, and seats with a signature striped design, the 1984 and 1985 Wolfsburg Edition campers and newer campers had some interior upgrades. The décor became more low-key, with tan-coloured cabinet finishes and tan velour seat material. The lower-quality wall and ceiling coverings were replaced with more durable material. The biggest change was in 1990, when the refrigerator was changed to an electric-start type.
The Volkswagen Bus-Vanagon engine kept evolving
Between 1980 and 1983, The Volkswagen Bus-Vanagon had a 2000cc air-cooled engine that lacked power, and the engine life was typically 90,000 miles. Between 1982 and 1983 a diesel-powered engine was introduced. Between 1983 and 1985 the water-cooled “Wasserboxer” engine was introduced to North America. The big change between 1986 and 1991 was the improved exhaust, ignition, fuel injection, brakes and cooling systems.
