Where to find a Volkswagen bus for sale

In the world of classic cars, Volkswagens have a particular strong following. The Beetle and the ubiquitous VW camper vans are far and away the most popular. If you want to join the classic camper ranks and enjoy all that these air-cooled beauties have to offer, where do you buy a bus?

Early vans

Buying a campervan can be an expensive business. Splitties
Early Type 1split windscreen versions (or "Splitties") sell for tens of thousands of pounds in top condition. It isn't unusual to find complete wrecks for restoration selling at prices that would buy you a nice, used luxury car! If you're going to invest in one of these, you'd better know that it's exactly what you want and it is a sound, well-looked after vehicle. If you've never driven one of the early vans, it's a good idea to check the camper rentals to begin with. Hire yourself a campervan for the week-end just to be sure that you can live with it (literally) before you splash the cash on ownership. Owners' clubs, specialist sellers and restorers are the best places to be looking for Splitties and the Type 2 bay window vans. Buying from these sources is far more likely to get you a good, honest example.
Websites Vwcampers.com and Vwcampercrazy.co.uk are both excellent sites for new and old van information. They have comprehensive lists of traders, spares suppliers and private classified adverts to help you on your way to van ownership. Vwtype2.co.uk is a handy site dedicated to the Type 2 "Bay" from 1968 to 1979. All the advice and help you need to get behind the wheel of a bay is on this site along with a number of Volkswagen vans for sale.

The T25, T4 and T5

The Type 25 was introduced in 1979, and is a more modern take on the original theme. These have an equally enthusiastic following but, for some bizarre reason, they sell for less money than their early counterparts. As a route into classic van ownership, these are a wonderful option. Volkswagent25.co.uk is a great place to start looking for advice and buying tips. The resources sites mentioned above can also help with newer models and Campervanauctions.co.uk always has an up-to-date list of the current auction stock from sites like eBay. If you fancy something less classic and more modern, then the T4/5 conversions may be right up your street. These are based on modern VW transporters and have all the safety and economy that come with it. Try Vwcampersales.com, they are specialists in these models. Whatever you choose, Splittie or T5, enjoy the experience and revel in the freedom they offer.
