1987 VW Vanagon Westfalia Full Camper – $7,700 in Ballard, CA

Posted by a seller in Ballard, WA this morning is this 1987 Vw Vanagon Westfalia Full Camper(link) w/ manual trans and 213 miles for only $7,700.  The owner says they have all records since new, and that the only fix the van currently needs is a new tent canvas. While tent canvases and install are not cheap(or easy), $7,700 is a pretty good price for an 1987 full camper that runs well and shows like this. They even state that sink, stove and fridge all still work.  Aside from some bumps, nicks, minor rust spots and bumper caps, this van looks like a deal. The tent canvases are anywhere from $300 -> $800, depending on quality, materials, windows, etc, but I’m not sure how much time it takes to install, it took this guy 5 hours.

  1. I did go view this van. Unfortunately, he misstated most things about the van. Originally he states that it is a “one owner”. However, he also states that it is a van he “purchased” from his uncle. The van has rust in every seam and there are rust bubbles under the windshield. It needs some engine work to make it run smooth. It does not have a working dashboard (no radio, fan, clock, temp guage). It has bad bumpers and body damage behind the bumpers. It has a moldy interior that my wife had an immediate reaction to. He expressed unwillingness to do an emissions or carb test for title transfer. The “records” he has are for oil changes only.

    • Crazy! Thanks for the heads up! Sucks when he wastes other’s time by not fully disclosing issues.
