The Volkswagen Eurovan was the best and final evolution of the Volkswagen Transporter. The Type 4 Transporter, called the Eurovan for the North American market, was the VW van that did it all. The original Type I transporter, the split window Bus, was charming and iconic, although small and underpowered. The Type II, bay window Bus, was better, but still woefully underpowered and it had no heat (at least mine didn’t). The Vanagon that followed had heat and some modern amenities, but it was still underpowered and ancient by technological standards (mine maxes out at 30 mph going over the pass). The Eurovan catapulted the Transporter into the modern era. It was powerful, efficient, and reliable. Inside, space was plentiful and filled with modern amenities. Early model production years were powered by an inline 5-cylinder 2.5-liter engine producing 110 horsepower. While not as powerful as the later VR6 engines that followed, the 5-cylinder didn’t suffer the timing chain issues the VR6 had either, thanks to a timing belt. The Camper was based on the long wheel-base Type 4 and converted by Winnebago with a host of options (outlined above).
I am selling this 1995 Volkswagen Eurovan Camper on consignment for the 4th owner, a Eurovan enthusiast. It was originally purchased in Tulsa, Oklahoma and came to Colorado in 2007, remaining here ever since. The Carfax shows regular services, and records are included from 2010 on. The records show regular oil changes, along with comprehensive routine maintenance. A major service including the timing belt, distributor cap and rotor, water pump, and fuel filter was done at 98K, along with a transmission service. The front brakes and rotors were done at 111K miles. At 113K miles the suspension was rebuilt, the brake and power steering fluid were flushed, and another preventative transmission service was completed. In preparation for sale, the air conditioning compressor and receiver dryer were replaced, the system was recharged, the sink pump was replaced, and it was given a fresh oil change. Fresh tires were mounted in 2016. The interior and exterior are in good shape, along with all camper components. All panels are original and it has never been in an accident. The Carfax is clean.
We would like to find a new home for this Eurovan where it will be continued to be cared for and enjoyed as it has been. Please contact us for questions or to schedule a viewing.
The Arctic White paint is in good condition. There are no glaring dents, chips, or peeling clear coat. Close examination does reveal small imperfections and leading edge pitting commiserate with age and use. There is no frame or body rust, although the exhaust and underbody components do have superficial surface rust. The trim, black-work, headlight lenses, and window glass are presentable. The rear bumper cover has a few small cracks on the outboard edges. The windshield has no cracks, but does have minor pitting. The turn signal lenses have spider cracks. The poptop has a crack from side to side, which is sealed with clear tape. The owner reports it has been this way throughout her ownership and has not affected its usability. There are a few small holes and some UV fading on the side canvas. The front window screen zipper slides freely and the screen is in good shape. The rear hatch struts are firm and were recently replaced. The stock 15-inch Eurovan wheels are straight and free of bends; they are wrapped in Firestone TransForce HT Tires with lots of tread remaining.
The interior condition is in likewise good condition. The are no odors or smoke smell. The flooring has no stains or tears. The seats have no stains, tears, or failed stitching and the armrests work. The rear bench is in great shape. The rear bed folds down conveniently by sliding forward. It is a much easier design than the Z bed in the Vanagon. All power door locks and windows work. The power mirror switch is finicky, but it works. All instrument cluster functions work. The heat blows warm and the air conditioning blows cold. The original Sony stereo works, but the driver’s door speaker is blown. There are a few plastic fiddly bits that are broken in the interior, typical for VW’s of this vintage. All camper functions work, the sink pump was recently replaced and the propane tank was recently serviced. The stainless steel sink and stove are very clean, as is the inside of the fridge. The modular table is present.
This Eurovan has always been maintained to high standards. It has always had regular oil changes and regular services. In Colorado, Wrights German Automotive in Arvada and Mr. Mechanic in Fort Collins have attended to it. All receipts are organized in a three ring binder. The Carfax also documents regular service from the prior owners. The 5-cylinder engine fires on command, idles smoothly, and pulls strong. It had the major service mentioned in the summary paragraph at 98K miles and was given fresh oil change in preparation for sale. It doesn’t spot or leak. The in-line 5 cylinder engines did not have the timing chain tensioner issues of the VR6, thanks to being timing belt driven. The timing belt was last replaced at 98K miles. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly in all gears. Automatic transmissions (transaxles) were a weak spot in all Eurovans. Go Westy has an excellent explanation of the why and when they fail. This Eurovan is comfortably past the “danger zone” of 50 to 100K miles. It was treated to a full service in 2010 at 98K miles, and again in 2016 at 113K miles. There is no driveline or wheel bearing vibration and the brakes showed 90% remaining at 113K miles in 2016. The exhaust has no leaks and we pay for emissions in Colorado.
