which models had the 'CAMPING' badge?

Post by Mona »

Hi All,

The badge on the right of my tailgate says CAMPING instead of TRANSPORTER. I wondered if this was this put on by a particular company, or is it something that people add themselves?

As I know it had a partnr by VW.
Early Westfalias had it by default, later with the newer font design they were taken out.

Thanks,

I've just noticed Devon vans have 'Camping' on them, but I don't think mine is a Devon.

I think , although I’m happy to be proven wrong, that it’s age related , and  "camping " and "Bus" badged windowed busses may not have been a thing after about ‘86 
later Devons were either "Caravelle" or "Tramsporter", no  idea about westies.

Ah, the Devon I was looking at was 80 or 81, so that fits in.

according to ETKA, the old style Transporter badge with similar lettering was used up to VIN nr. 24-D-200 000 which means end of model year '83
from '84 the new style badge was used, so I think the CAMPING was removed too

Mine has the DEVON Camping badges on the back, presumably put on during the conversion.

My 82 Devon has a CAMPING badge no idea if it was Devon or VW who fitted it. But the Devon badge is fitted directly above the camping badge, and was there when Ibought her some 24 years ago. Its on right hand side with TRANSPORTER on left side of tailgate
