Why Buy a VW Pop Top Camper

If you are thinking about buying a camper, it is a good idea to check out all of your options before making a purchase. You many not be set on a Volkswagen camper yet, so here are some reasons to buy a VW pop top camper.

One of the major advantages to the Volkswagen camper models such as the Eurovan, Vanagon, and Westfalia is their slender size and usability. Being compact with a low roof option they are also great for daily use and weekend trips, as well as being excellent general multi-purpose vehicles for surfing, bike riding and exploring the entire United States. There are not too many other campers out there you could be comfortable driving around town in besides the VW camper models.

Another advantage to the VW pop top camper is the amount of money you put in the gas tank. Volkswagen campers are known for their great gas milage. Even when they are full of camping equipment you can expect to get 15-17 MPG but when empty, you can expect to drive in the mid 20's for each gallon of gas. The other campers out there are gas hogs and again, most of them that are relatively the same size as pop top campers need to be pulled by some kind of vehicle, which really decreases the gas mileage.

The last thing I want to bring up is price. If you want to be able to take your family on a camping trip in an RV you are going to be paying at least $30,000+ for a used vehicle. You can spend that kind of money and buy a brand new top of the line VW pop top camper for that. Most used Volkswagen pop top campers in good condition are in the $15,000 - $22,000 and the older models you can find under $12,000. These vehicles will last forever and are at half the cost of other camper models out there.

If you are looking to save money on a camper that gets good gas mileage you are going to want to look at VW pop top campers. We carry Eurovan, Vanagon, and Westfalia models that you can use for everyday life, not just the weekends.
