I love the size of my Westfalia and have had a few over the years. I think it's the most affordable thing for camping out in the wilds but still keeping a certain level of comfort. However, over the years I have had repeated issues with the engine overheating and the car shutting down. This has caused me to only be able to camp during the spring, winter, and fall months since I have to avoid the summer. It definitely has some serious design flaws and isn’t entirely reliable, but overall it’s been a pleasure to have and camp with. I love these vehicles so much that, even when I went across country to vacation in Yosemite, I rented one to camp in! Once you get used to the cushy beds, it’s pretty difficult to even consider going back to tents. It has a few nice amenities, including a mini... (more)
Story
I rented one to visit Yosemite Park and stayed there for a week. It served as a very nice home base.
Pros
I love the two levels of beds in my Westie, even the seat that folds out into a bed is pretty comfortable and the top bunk is easy to access by stepping onto the sink/oven when they're covered. There's enough storage for a small inflatable raft next to the back seats and the refrigerator, sink, and oven raise the comfort level. The refrigerator keeps things relatively cool, but I’ve found that if it’s too full then the quality of the cool drops greatly even to the point of just keeping things slightly below room temperature on hotter days. The top is very easy to raise up. Even as a kid (m... (more)
Cons
The vehicle has some negatives too. For one, if you get an older one, be ready for a money sink. I’ve had to replace multiple parts on mine, including the transmission. Since I have an older model, some of these parts are really hard to get and very expensive to boot. The engine has a tendency to overheat when it’s hot out and even when it’s temperate, so it’s definitely not a reliable vehicle in the summer months. In traffic it’s worse and I’ve gotten broken down on the highway multiple times because of overheating. Onto the smaller things! The pull out table next to the back seat, while ... (more)

If you ever see a Volkswagen camper for sale and you enjoy camping or having a rare and beautiful example of German engineering - jump on it ! These vans are well engineered, and are an absolutely blast. The space is very well thought out, and while mine did not have the pop up roof I still thought it was spacious and a joy to own. If you can find one with a pop up roof - absolutely buy it.
Story
Eventually sold it to a young man just getting his license. Given the fold out bed and wrap around window coverings, this is not a car that any father will let his daughter be picked up in for a date !
Pros
Well thought out design, perfect for sleeping up to four people. Useful refrigerator, bedding, storage space. Reasonably comfortable, and gorgeous to look at. Also quite rare in Illinois
Cons
Mine had been driven throughout California central and south America before I purchased it. It was quite old and had started to become unreliable. It does not handle well nor does it have much power (semi trucks would pass me going up the mountains while I had the pedal floored)

1989 Volkswagen Vanagon - Amazing vehicle with the ability to keep restored.

I absolutely love this vehicle. I read about them when I was younger and when I became of age, I purchased one. I love the homey features such as the pull out table, refrigerator, stove and other amenities. My only complaint would be it tends to overheat in hotter parts of the country.
Story
I was able to take a road trip from Tennessee to Florida.
Pros
The top features were those that added to its homey feel. The refrigerator, stove, flip-up bed, and all others that make you feel like the vehicle could be a home.
Cons
Radiator tends to overheat.
