VW Finally Got It Right !!
By Sheldon on


1997 Volkswagen EuroVan Campmobile 3dr Minivan


This is our second VW Camper, the first being a '78 Westfalia Model. Bought both new, and have had this '97 Eurovan Camper for almost 13 years now. All the complaints and problems of the old VW "bus" models have been corrected with this 6-cyclinder model. It has ample power, runs smooth and quiet, is extremely dependable, versatile, and loads of fun to drive and camp -- and, it fits in the garage! The Winnebago camper conversion package is far superior to the older Westfalia conversions --- everything works perfectly! We have had no serious problems with either the vehicle or the camping equipment. After all the years that VW built their 'bus' models, they FINALLY got it right!!

Best Features

Still fits in the garage. Totally self-contained camping. 3-way refrigerator (AC/DC/propane) Excellent fit and finish inside & out. Comfortable front seating. Both Potable & gray water holding tanks. Stainless Steel sink & stovetop. 18-21mpg fuel economy. Onboard furnace for cold weather.

Worst Features

VW, in all their wisdom, afer finally getting their van right with the Eurovan and Winnebago's excellent camper conversion package, decided to discontinue the Eurovan and replace it with that stupid Chrysler Corporation mini-van with a VW nameplate. No more VW quality built van or camper!
