Volkswagen is changing the mobile camping game with this unique “doubleback” camper that is really more like a mini RV.
The Volkswagen Doubleback Camper is truly a innovation in the mobile camping world. They took the popular VW Transporter van and decked it out to the max, creating a comfortable and surprisingly spacious camper.
Practical Motorhome in the UK got a hold of one of the early Doubleback models to review the camper a few years ago. Although the company that designed them has added and taken away a few things here and there, it is still a pretty cool thing to see.
The Doubleback now comes as a 2.0 or 2.3 liter diesel, with optional five person seating, a manual or automatic transmission, new furniture add-ons, and new layouts.
Volkswagen’s new camper is a bit pricey at 50,000 pounds, which is almost $79,000 USD. You could buy yourself and a neighbor a decent camper for that price here in the states.
