Westfalia Caravan, Whos Got One? or knows about them

Post by Gavin m » Mon Jun 11, 2012 10:35 am

I want one but only the 310-4 will fit in my drive
If you can tell me anything about them it would be apreciated
Ive seen the one on ebay but its too big so i suspect that Ill be looking for a little while

We have an eriba that is a 3 birth early faun/familia that we just about get the 4 of us in but think the westfalia is the next step

This is what we have now

We have a Mostard Yvonne 4 berth just like Bojangles had, super to tow and easy to push around once un hitched it has a nice pop-top with a canvas bellows which you can rollup when the weather is warmer 8) 8) 8) Tisk-Tisk!!! so no height problems the kids love it, they are a Dutch make and so are light weight, there is an owners club w/s which is in Dutch but there is a translation service with some servers, happy hunting :) ...Kombie 454 aka The Grand Old Duke of Powis :king:
Well I'm standin' on a corner in Winslow Arizona,
Such a fine sight to see!
Oh there's a girl my lord in a flat-bed ford,
Slowin' down to take a look at me! .....................( Wish I'd written that! )

Not to bothered about the weight as it will be behind my good lady's BMW if we go far
Then I get to enjoy driving the trekker while she tows the caravan
A large camo net to hide the BMW once we arrive

The westfalia will only just fit in the drive with the trekker
