Have thought about these but they don't go uphills very well and no space for the bike Rack

Amongst the VW "SET" anything that is marked up with a VW logo is a prized commodity--Unfortunately they are also a "Priced" commodity aswell and After the amount I will spend on the camper this year-I won't be sleeping in no tent.

That tent is the only way I could afford a VW Combi camper here in the states. That is funny, I like it, very cool!

I don't recall if my first VW camper was a 65 or not but it looked just like that tent in green. I loved that old van, the only engine I was ever any good at working on. leob1, thanks for posting that....helps an old man's memories.

I particularly like the note that says: This product is NOT an actual VW van!

If your van was a split screen version- You should not have sold it. Same with the very early Beatle I had with a split rear screen. Either of those in Scrap condition will now buy a Dogma with Di2 and 1000 gramme wheels. In good condition you might be able to buy 3.

Edit-Just checked prices and you will be able to get 3 Dogmas and have them gold plated as well.
