eBay watch: 1970 Volkswagen Type 2 Camper Van


We see a lot of VW vans on eBay, but often, they are either ridiculously expensive or not in particularly good condition. This 1970 Volkswagen Type 2 Camper Van is on the right side of both of those concerns.

It's had 'extensive restoration, pretty much everything from the exterior to the doors and wheels through to a refresh of the original Devon interior. Read the description for all the detail – it's certainly wide ranging. There's even a few modern essentials squeezed in too – like a CD player with new in-door speakers and a 15-inch pull-down Freeview TV.

'Looks and drives superb' claims the seller. If you want it in your life, the bidding right now is at £2,000. Lots more images on the listing too.

VW Camper Van Tent – an exact replica of a 1960s van


If you can't afford the real thing for the summer, this VW Camper Van Tent might prove an able and equally cool substitute.

It's actually officially licensed from Volkswagen, a four-person tent and indeed, a 1:1 replica of a 1965 VW Camper Van. For your money, you get the design, all that space (you can even stand up in it), with two zip-separated double-sized rooms within and top-end waterproofing. It even has doors that open just like the original van.

Everything is included – tent, fly, poles, ropes / pegs and set-up instructions – and there's a choice of three colours (yellow, red and blue). £299 is the price and you can pre-order at Firebox right now. More images over the page.
