VW Camper Family

 

WELCOME
Hey everyone! If you found this, you found the online home of some very offline people - The VW Camper Family. People into VW bus and van camping. Get involved in the forum or check out the upcoming events. If you are into VW buses, vanagons, eurovans and camping, you should hang out with us. Really, you should.

HOW TO USE THIS SITE:
Post an event: Post an event that you are organizing or know about. People can RSVP right in the event. Please make any comments about the event on the event's page.

General Forum:
This area is for threads of interest to any VW camper.

Groups:
PLEASE JOIN THE GROUPS YOU ARE INTERESTED IN! THAT'S WHERE THE EVENT PLANNING HAPPENS! Groups can be created as specific needs come up. Things that are a help to all people, like "campground reviews", are perfect for this category. Or groups in a specific location.

RULES:
Just two so far:
1. Be nice.
2. Keep the content specific to VWs and camping. All other threads, photos, videos, etc will be removed.

Hi there, the title of this post is not a happy one, but is the sad true about the difficulties to live fulltime in a van like us and be of the grid. Especially when comes down to borders. I would like to share also here a gofundme campain we started just the day before leaving Canada, after US decide we're not welcome there. We spent all our savings for this new adventure and we had no other choice in order to be a famil again, under the roof our our van, home, office...our everything. Any help is precious at this time. We already accomplished a good result because of many friends, followers or simply sympatizers that just beleive in helping people, as we do daily. Save travels to everybody. Link to gofundme: https://www.gofundme.com/2qq25q5jLink to our website for paypal users: …See More
