Thanks Ben, For the info on trim levels... The price on the '85 sounds good but I am in PA so I will have to pass for now... Money is a bit tight as always... I may need to wait a yr or 2 before I can spend the money for a nice one. Starting a new job soon so thing may be better sooner than I might expect GregK "seadog" ----- Original Message ----- From: To: ; Sent: Tuesday, January 09, 2001 8:58 PM Subject: Re: Trim Levels

The model you are describing sounds to me like the Wolfsburg Edition Weekender. People often times get confused with that "Weekender" nomenclature. Some people mistake the GL vans (which have rear seats that fold into a bed) as Weekenders. The true Weekender HAS a poptop but not the stove and such that is associated with the full campers. There was an optional removable icechest-style fridge which can operate on 12DC or 110AC. The rear seat folds into a bed but is narrower than the GL folding bench. There is a narrow closet to the rear similar to the full-Westy Campers. There is also a folding side table integrated into the side wall (equipped with folding cupholders). There is a a single rear facing non-removable seat with storage underneath just behind the driver's seat. The removable fridge

resides just behind the front passenger seat.

The later model Carats were similarly equipped IIRC.

I have a GL van which I consider to be a "day camper". No poptop but has the folding rear bench/bed. I add the removable fridge whenever I need it.

Perhaps that is all you need.

If you definitely want a Weekender, I know there is an 85 going up for sale at a local VW shop near me for $4500.
