VW Camper or Weekender

The difference between a Camper and a Weekender?

GoCamp offers two different kinds of Volkswagen Eurovans and Vanagons: Campers and Weekenders. Both are great, but for different reasons!

Campers have kitchens.

Campers include a kitchenette with a sink, water tank, two-burner gas stove, and either a small fridge or a small cooler for keeping your perishables cold. Typically, the same propane tank that powers the stove also provides heat in the winter to keep you toasty and warm. There are slight differences between Vanagons and Eurovans and even more slight differences depending on the year of the vehicle, but the illustration should give you a good sense. 

Eurovan Camper

  • Seats 4/Sleeps 4
  • Automatic transmission w cruise control
  • Air Conditioning
  • Interior stove/sink/fridge (or cooler)
  • 12,000 BTU forced air furnace
  • Poptop: 74″ x 43″
  • Bottom bunk: 74″ x 43″

Vanagon Camper

  • Seats 4/Sleeps 4
  • Often manual transmission w stick shift (check listings)
  • Roll down the windows (generally no AC, check listings)
  • Interior stove/sink/fridge (or cooler)
  • Poptop: 72″ x 47″
  • Bottom bunk: 74″ x 45″

Weekenders have space.

In a Weekender, without the built-in kitchenette you’ll have more seating. You’ll also have a larger sleeping area and a more flexible floor plan. Rest assured, we send you off with a fully-equipped exterior kitchen set up and everything you’ll need to cook. And kids absolutely love the novelty of traveling backwards in the rear facing seats.
