VW Camper Timeline

A Design Classic

When Volkswagon produced its first camper in 1950 it caused a revolution in the motor industry and is still regarded as a true design classic 66 years later.

 

The first generation of camper, defined by its split front windscreen was subject to many design changes and refinements through the 17 years of its production lifetime from 1950 to 1967.

The early versions of the camper until 1955 were often called the "Barndoor", owing to the enormous rear engine cover, while the later versions had changes including a slightly extended roofline above the windscreen, a smaller engine bay and 15" wheels instead of the original 16" ones.

 

The VW Camper Timeline visually charts the history of these exterior modifications.  Simply roll over one of the detail snapshots to see a larger version.
