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.

James Mc and Homer

Greetings VW camper fam friends,I’m so sorry I’ve been MIA this past year. Melinda, Sydney and I have been ramping up our shop here in SF, and the amount of camping time has become limited.I wanted to shout out to you all because 5 weeks ago I was involved in a serious wreck in Homer, my ‘73 westfalia. I’m ok thankfully, I came out with two broken legs, but everything in tact.So I don’t know exactly what happened, but I think my king pin in the front beam went. I was driving back home in the early evening after being down on the coast with a friend filming all day. I was coming right past ocean beach onto Fulton and The van pulled my abruptly and sharply into a parked vehicle. I couldn’t correct it.Please check your steering components. We miss you all very much. If you’re in SF hit me up.-JamezMcInstagram:@jamezmc@haightstshroomshopSee More

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

January 31, 2020 at 1pm to February 2, 2020 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.)On Saturday, the legendary 'Soup or Bowl' competition will take place once again! Here's how it works: Prepare a batch of something hot and delicious to share that can be served in a bowl. Some examples would be chili, stew, Jambalaya, a hearty soup or anything else that's yummy. Bring your entry to the serving table no later than 4:00 pm. Using ballots, all attendees will rank the entries from best to the not-so-best. Those with the most votes will receive *VALUABLE PRIZES*, a snazzy ribbon and eternal bragging rights. Runner-ups will also receive a snazzy ribbon along with the honor vested to participants. If you want to…See More
