A camping forum for VW bus and camper owners.

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.

JLT's Half Century of Cheating Death - Livermore, CA at Del Valle Regional Park, Livermore, CA

April 10, 2015 at 1pm to April 12, 2015 at 2pm
On March 31, 1965, I almost died. Every day since then has been a day I didn't deserve. It's been a gift, and I've had almost fifty years of them. I'd like to celebrate these gifts with some other gifts I've been given over the years ... the friendships I've collected from some of the most wonderful people I've had the pleasure to know.  I'll bring the Tent of Doom and wine. You bring wine, wood, and you sweet selves.You can reserve campsites through http://www.reserveamerica.com/See More

1992 Volkswagen Eurovan Westfalia Refrigerator

I need any information others might have on how to repair and service the refrigerator on my 1992 Volkswagen Eurovan Westfalia, as well as to find anyone who has parts for these units. Mine seems to work when it is stationary and hooked up on 110 power, but it does not seem to work on the auxiliary battery, the 12 volt unit, when I am traveling.  Is this a common aliment with these units and, if so, how can it be remedied?  Also, where can I find either replacement units, either OEM or aftermarket, for the original one, or OEM parts for this unit.  My Volkswagen mechanic seems at a loss in finding replacement units for the original one or in finding OEM parts for it.Any information and technical assistance would be greatly appreciated. See More
