VW Camper Family

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.

February 3, 2017 at 2pm to February 5, 2017 at 1pm
While everybody else is watching the pre-Superbowl stuff, we'll be camping! Reservations can be made at http://parkreservations.solanocounty.com/As usual, bring wood and wine. This event will be held rain or shine, as either the Tent of Doom or one of its spawn will give us some protection as we sit around the fire.IFriday night will be pizza night, so bring your camp ovens. We will provide Coleman stoves, but if you want to bring your own, feel free.And there may be some sort of cooking contest, as there were in years past. Stay tuned...See More

"Could we perhaps make a run of stickers? Charge, I dunno, maybe $3.00 and use the remainder to pay the annual fee? There are plenty of people all over the world who would pony up for a sticker."
