We have a 1989 T25 Westfalia California. Bought it last year and as well as many short trips we did 2,500miles round France last year.
Our 'van has a big wedge top and this makes it so much easier for moving about inside and is convenient. yes there may be more 'drag' but we have found our van to be good on fuel...is a 1.6td. We don't mind just pootling along and other drivers in France we have found to be very considerate of us!
When we bought our van it had just had a new engine fitted. Unfortunately the gearbox went on our first trip out.........cue a bill for £700. However this is really the only money so far spent on the van.
Managed to do the big France trip...oh had to get a new battery then but that was the only problem we had. Then did a week in Cornwall and the hoses split in the engine!!! Found a fab VW guy in Wadebridge who sorted us out that time.
We love getting out in our van.....and can't wait for France again this year!
