Subject: Re: Trim Levels
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

<< Anybody know where I can get an overall description of trim levels for
Vanagons. Also... I was under the impression that they had a level of trim
constituted a "day camper"???...Westy minus the pop-up I think. Once I saw
a Wolfsburg edition with a lay down rear seat arrangement and I believe... a
built in Ice Chest/Refer.
Sound familiar to anyone?
Please let me know abt. the trim level nomenclature as well. >>
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.
