1984 VW Vanagon High Top Camper – $8,500 in Arcata, CA

Here’s one right down the street from me, though I don’t think I’ve seen it in person before. While not a true “Westfalia”, I thought it was worthy of posting.  This van is a 1984 VW Vanagon with an unspecified high top camper conversion kit which appears to include a sink, stove and more.  It appears to have the original two tone paint and boasts a low 136k miles.  Th engine is the stock 1.9L, though the manual  transmission is said to have been rebuilt.  There’s no decent pictures of the interior, or mention of what kind of camping appliances exist inside, or how well the work. Aside from what looks like a decent dent in the slider door, it shows fairly well, and at only $8,500 asking price, it’s definitely worth checking out if you live behind the redwood curtain already.  Find it in Arcata, California, Humboldt County, worth a trip if you’ve never been. Craigslist Link

A Note For Potential Buyers: Do a VIN check, look for structual rust underneath and in the seams, drive it at highway speeds for a while and see how quiet the top is, check for air leaks, etc.  As always, there’s a growing list of Westy buying tips over here.

A Note For The Seller: Would be great if you could provide a VIN and title report, along with more pictures of the interior and the current state of the camping equipment.

    The interior sports a refrigerator and campstove. The sink and watertank(good shape..but faucet needs a washer) vented propane htr with exhaust fan works well with new propane tank. It has an upper sliding loft bed and a lower fold out spacious bed. am/fm stereo with cd changer. Closet and front/rear heating. Air Conditioner has been removed by previous owner. Probably a good thing. Water cooled. Runs very well. rooftop solar panel for auxillary charging. no more pics, cuz no more camera sorry.
