The Westfalia Company was founded in 1844 by Johann Knobel and
originally concentrated on the manufacture of agricultural tools
before becoming involved with building of horse drawn carriages.
The factory was virtually wiped out by bombing during the Second
World War but they recovered sufficiently to exhibit a caravan at
the 1947 Hanover Fair. That might have been the end of the story
had the VW Transporter not come into existence in 1950 with their
large space and easy mechanics. They were an instant hit with the
general public and at weekends. owners started using these
transporters to go away in. adding extra seats. beds and camping
stoves. The breakthrough came in 1951 when an American army officer
asked Westfalia to convert a motor caravan which quickly resulted
in an order for fifty more. In 1952. they started producing the
first VW Transporter Camping Boxes; these vehicles had a cabinet
installed behind the front seat which contained washing and cooking
equipment with fold down worktops and the rear seat converted into
a sleeping platform. In 1972/73 production started on a series of
conversions that established Westfalia as the leading converter of
VW Transporters. Westfalia continue to produce fine examples of
motor caravans to this day in what has become a very competitive
market.

This 1979 Westfalia camper was imported into the UK in 2014 and
presents in good order. The blue paintwork is in good order as is
the interior trim and elevating roof. Supplied with a V5C
registration document and a year's MoT test certificate. this
lefthand drive. four berth Camper is ready to be used and enjoyed
immediately. What better way to enjoy the coming
summer!
