Westfalia Weekenders

The Volkswagen Westfalia Weekender is the lighter leaner cousin of the full camper. While it still maintains the upstairs bunk and fiberglass pop top, it lacks most of the storage cabinets, kitchen and other amenities. However many fans prefer the weekender over the camper due to the fact it has more room downstairs, usually has five stock seatbelts and is a bit lighter overall. The Weekenders usually come with the Wolfsburg trim package as well.

  1. Hi Will, I have a 2003 weekender is perfect shape. We had the transmission rebuilt last year. Just did all the brakes last month. We’re thinking of selling this summer would sort of like to camp in it one more time. Interior is perfect. We never took the plastic off the rugs. All curtains and screens perfect. We had a CD player installed when we purchased it in 2003, everything works. Asking $24,000. We live in the Baltimore area. 150,000 miles.

  2. I’m currently looking for a Westfalia Weekender and I love this website for offering resources to help find it. I noticed that the Craigslist page is very active, updating every time a Westfalia is placed on Craigslist. I was wondering if this page is active as well? All these postings of Weekenders are expired.

    If not, I’d love some advice finding one as it seems whoever I’m speaking to has quite the knowledge about locating these wonderful vans.

    • I have an ‘86 Weekender with 153,000 mi., 2.1 l motor that runs flawlessly, for sale in Austin, TX. If you are still in pursuit of one, find it listed on Duluth c/l site. Think my price might be too high given some minor interior flaws, so i’m open to serious inquiry and info share.
