|2003 or later westfalia?||Gustavo||5-2-03|
|I was informed that VW is changing the body style for its eurovan and that the westfalia pop-top camper will no longer be available. the source of this was a sales person at a california dealer trying to sell me their last westfalia. what's the truth?|

|You heard right. 2003 is the last year of the Type 4 eurovan. VW will soon start production of the T5 to be sold in Europe. The T5 will also be the base for the New Mircobus.|
Mecedes-Benz has bought Westfalia so it's doubtful that Westfalia will continue to convert VW. Look for a Westy verion of the Sprinter van made by MB and sold under the the frightliner logo in the US, maybe in the next few years.
I just asked a VW sales guy today whether the T5 eurovan would come to the US market or not. He didn't know.
So we're in the same boat. I plan to buy a 2003 weekender away. The new mircobus is gonna be $$$. The Sprinter conversion isn't here yet. The T5 eurovan is years away if ever.

|Westfalia stopped converting Eurovans in 1993. Since then, including the 2003, conversions have been done by Winnebago.|
There probably will not be a T5 conversion for at least a couple of years so if you can get a T4 EVC you should - there are not many left.
