As we all know, Volkswagen camper vans have a cult following, and for good reason. They’re reliable and pack just enough features in a relatively small footprint. Now Netherlands-based Tonke looks to add to that legacy with its T6 van.
Their version takes the popular VW Transporter van model and adds extra storage, a swing-out kitchenette with a dual-burner gas stove, sink, and removable compressor refrigerator, as well as a pop-up roof and bed. If you’re going off-grid, the van has two four-gallon water tanks (fresh and gray), and solar- and battery-power options.
Unfortunately, just as VW’s California camper van is only available in Europe, there are no plans to offer Tonke’s version in the United States.
