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.

Looking for women campers in the Southern New England area

Hello VW enthusiasts,My name is Mary and I have been a VW bus owner for over 30 years. Currently, I am on my 3rd VW, a lovely 1987 Westie. I recently moved back to the east coast where I am originally from (RI). I miss my camping buddies on the west coast and was hoping to meet up with a few women in this area. I can camp alone and have done a lot of it, but it is always nice to have some company.Since I am retired, my time is pretty open. My idea of a good time camping would be to share a good meal, a fire, a nice glass of wine, some good conversation, a hike, bike, swim, or kayak adventure, and some tips on travel. I also like to take in some of the local sights, particularly anything having to do with history. In my former life, I was a college English professor. I have traveled across country in my Volkswagen bus, gone up and down the west coast innumerable times, and rented VW Westies abroad, most notably in England, Wales, Germany, and the Netherlands. I would love to do that…See More

"Yes, campsites can accommodate two vehicles. The campground has suggested they will refund the HipCamp fee. I will need to check into how that works. It might depend on how many sites we use."
