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.

Annual Soup Or Bowl Campout at Sandy Beach Park, on the Sacramento River

February 1, 2019 at 1pm to February 3, 2019 at 2pm
Our annual escape from Superbowl Madness. It will be our usual set-up .... wine, food, companionship (bring the wine and bring or buy the wood). Also, musical instruments are welcome, and maybe we can jam a little.Friday night is pizza night ... bring your little Coleman camp ovens or use ours, and make and bake an 8" pizza. (You provide ingredients, of course.)Saturday will probably bring the return of our culinary potluck/contest with anything eligible that is usually served in a bowl ...chili, soup, whatever.Party Central will be spot #4.  As usual, it will be rain or shine, and if it's rainy, the Tent of Doom, the Annex of Despair, and possible a few TOD clones will keep us all dry.See More

"Hello Angela: I don't know if I can help, but I also have a 1995 Eurovan, and have had most of it apart at one time or another. If you can describe the part and what it does I may be able to identify it."

Name this Part

My 1995 Eurovan has a pebble inside this large part. I can hear the rattle and see the pebble, but the part's cover doesn't seem to be removable. Can you name the part, please, so I can have an intelligent conversation with others about how to remove the pebble. Lol. Thank you.
