The VW Camper Story


What Europe needed after the Second World War was an ultra-reliable workhorse to get small businesses on the move again. And, with a little nudge from the Dutch, that's what Volkswagen provided in 1950 with its Transporter van. It was no fireball, but rock-solid quality meant it always delivered the goods. But then something incredible happened: people found that they enjoyed driving the trusty Transporter, and that it made an excellent place to spend the night.

Volkswagen vans have been front (originally rear) engined and water (originally air) cooled now for over 20 years, yet the spirit of the Camper is as unbowed as ever.
