The story of the Combi VW!

From combi T1 to van T6, evolution!

Today we will discover together the journey of the combi since its creation has now through all the key dates of its history. You can learn more about this emblematic and atypical vehicle that runs on our European and international roads.

the start!

The suit was designed in 1947! inspired by the look of the Ladybug and used by workers of the Volkswagen factory to transport equipment, is crunched by Ben Pon, vehicle importer.

The CEO of Volkswagen, who loves this concept, will present it in 1950 at the Geneva Motor Show.

In 1951, Samba is presented: it will then be the first version of the Volkswagen combi. With its 21 windows and two-tone paint, it attracts the public. The success is there. The story of the iconic Combi VW begins.

Westfalia is part of the development of the combi, the German developer participates in the creation of the «motorhome» part. It was in 1951 that the outfitted suit was created after a request from a British officer to work and sleep indoors.

In 2003, Westfalia and Volkswagen split up. Volkswagen wanting to build their own suit. Nevertheless, Westfalia participated in the creation of the fitted combis.


The T1 Split, the first!

The split combi is the first to be marketed, recognizable with its split breeze it is so nicknamed, «Barndoor» synonymous with garage door. From 1951 to 1967 it is the flagship combi of the brand.

Since 1965 he sees himself stylized with a high-rise roof, it was the last style of the split combi!

The bay window says T2!

The new suit with its huge windshield is appreciated for the holidays and marks the rise of van holidays since 1980. One of the peculiarities of this combi is its you that can be raised over the entire length. The T2 will be modified three times between 1972 and 1974.

In 1974, the T2 was stylized again with the Malaga version, a wardrobe and a double bed appeared.

The 100,000 vehicle mark was exceeded in 1971.


T3 says Vanagon

It differs with its square shape, the combi advances with its time to give way to a diesel engine as well as the driver’s station more advanced than on the previous combis. Still below 2 meters, he will see two versions released, the 4×4 version and the joker!

This T3 also marks the California versions, requested by Volkswagen, Westfalia created a more basic version and has a more accessible price since 1988.

More than 150,000 copies have been sold since its launch. In 1990, the end of T3 is coming, it will have lasted 11 years from 1979 to 1990 with countless versions and adjustments.

The T4 from 1990 to 2003!

This famous combi marks a renewal in the combi, the engine goes forward, the windshield is more inclined as well as modern suspensions. With its size always less than two meters, it is smaller than its predecessors.

On the layout side, we see the appearance of a bench on rails, an electric fridge. Several versions come out such as «the highway» released in 500 copies. Biker 95 with his bike carrier.

The T5 ends with Westfalia!

The T5 begins in 2003 and ends in 2015. Indeed, Volkswagen designs its own combi. It improves over time and therefore has aluminum finishes, an electric roof and newer furniture. We will also see two folding armchairs.

The last little T6!

T6 is the last of the VW combi line. Built with time and more recent products, it is the big brother of the other combis. 3 versions have been released since 2015.

The Beach, Coast and Ocean versions, each with more options.


The end of the combi is never over…

Volkswagen will not stop there and is planning an electric T7 with 600 km of range, we will be eager to discover it and see what it is worth.

the advantages

enough to jokes we wiil you give the advantages to leaving with camper renter family : Above all camper renter family, does its job out of passion smoller we the is out to us indeedhe knows all these models by heart he takes care of every vehicle and every detail.

therefore it does not hesite to not so anything time of explain for we explain the detail.

In addition, a family lessor also offers lower prices or at the same level of its competitors. In addition it offers personalized services, different number of days and wants to benefit its customers.

The familiar renters do not hesitate to support each other, to pass the customers if need and so try to group to do to the bigger renters.


the positive point

Therefore opting for a van rental is the family side and explanation, the transmission of the van lifer passion and the cool aspect we propose.

The disadvantages may be in terms of availability or a family lessor has fewer vehicles than a major competitor. What’s harder to find for a van on a more specific date…

Moreover, the reputation of a small rental company is more complicated. Getting known is harder despite comments or reviews on the site. The referencing is more complicated what sins on the lessors little known.

Thus on some vehicles the prices can be above the market because the vehicle fleets are different and therefore less important.

We also note that on some competitors mileage or things related to vehicles change and are not similar between lessors.

Some large renters offer more attractive offers and small renters can’t keep up because of their small vehicle fleets.

Finally, the small renters are the most sought after for the family aspect as well as their knowledge of the product that remains their passion.


After all its details do not hesitate to choose family renters.

Is renting before buying a good idea?

Is renting before buying a good idea?


Today we ask ourselves the following question: Is renting a T6 van before buying a better idea?

Our tips for renting and then buying a Van T6.

First of all, for a new Van Lifer, the goal is to discover by being reassured in the driving and space of the vehicle, especially the T6.

The rental allows to acclimatize to the environment and the driving of the vehicle. It also makes it possible to discover and take the time to find the small objects that compose it and to get an idea of the type of driving, of space.

Renting allows you to use a vehicle at a lower cost to get your hands on and discover before you pass the bottom to be the owner of the vehicle.

When renting a T6 several things are to be observed and judged by yourself, the explanations of the provider are otherwise noted. It will give you advice on the adopted driving, the small worries that can be encountered during the stay and the things to put in place to have good road conditions.

When you opt for rental instead of purchase, you have the advantage of not having to pay maintenance fees. In particular, this means that if you have a breakdown problem, it is up to the provider to manage the situation. You will not run the risk that the adventure will end overnight. Similarly, you will not need to take out insurance (apart from that of the rental contract). As you can see, renting a fitted van has as many advantages as disadvantages. Finally, the rental is mainly for people who plan to leave only for a few days and discover unforgettable sensations and make discoveries.


Discover the T6 vans and testimonials

The van rental is for the discovery before embarking on the adventure and the purchase of it.

4) The area of the camper contis between pine forest and ocean perfect for a night in a van!

In the Landes there are plenty of rest and quality areas for motorhomes. Thus at the foot of the arenas, as in Azur or Pomarez. In the duck farms of Chalosse. And those, of course, feet in the water, hands in the sand and head under the pines. As on the area of Contis, at the foot of the eponymous lighthouse, just behind the dune. From the parking lot, you can hear the ocean. We love this corner for the spirit of freedom that reigns there, less crowded than the beaches of the coast further south (even if in high season, you may have neighbors). A wild side in the middle of the pines. If you love freedom, you will be served.

5) Lake Mimizan, a quiet and relaxing place in the south west!

If you want to park your truck fitted out by a lake in Mimizan in the Landes. Nice place with a large lake, small bridge, children’s play, toilets, drinking water… it’s quiet and it’s good. Spending the night is free and allowed and animals are accepted, besides many walkers come with their dog. To continue, all day fishermen come to test the fish. And apparently it bites! So if you’re a fishing enthusiast, feel free to take your rod out here. You will also be able to see a flowering garden that is ranked #1 in the activities to do around the corner by Trip Advisor… that is to say. Indeed, a small ballad of about 15 minutes very nice. The setting is pretty and there are all kinds of beautiful plants.
