Volkswagen has produced some of the best 4×4 campervans of all time. Many of its creations are considered nothing short of classic vehicles. They have become part and parcel of popular culture, especially in America, where it is a symbol of great pride to be an owner of a 4×4 campervan.
Some of the most popular 4×4 campervan creations from Volkswagen are:
- The Split screen camper vans: Colloquially known as “Splitty”, these are nothing short of classic cars that have become a well loved symbol of independence. However, these are really quite slow for driving. That can be great for a leisurely afternoon of driving, but if you are in a hurry, this can be quite annoying. The van utilizes 6 volt electronics, which is what causes the slow speed. Although a 12 volt modification is available, this will set you back 10-15 thousand pounds. With that price tag, this is a car you had better keep in for the winter. This is not much of a car for daily use, but it is a collector’s item for the most loyal fans.
- The Bay window type 2 campervans: This is the ultimate 4×4 campervan. Although these are quite slow too, the newer models are pretty fast and fuel efficient. They will set you back around 5 to 10 thousand pounds.
- T25/ T3/ Wedge Vanagon campervan: The newer models use 1.9 and 2.1 liter petrol engines. They also use turbo diesel engines, which gives these 4x4campervans unmatched fuel efficiency. With great rust proofing, there is no need to worry about rust. Prices range from 2.5K for old models, to 11.5K pounds for the newest ones.
- The Pop top, tin top and high top campervans: The tin top models don’t have much space, but their roof has great insulation and is guaranteed to keep water out. They are for singles and couples who don’t have much space requirements.
The pop top’s canvas roof can be removed, which is great for camping trips
The high top gives great interior space, but you may have to worry about height limits in parking lots
Volkswagen has produced some of the best 4×4 campervans of all times, and their loyal following proves they are decent vehicles that all car enthusiasts should check out.
