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
