Cheap Volkswagen camper van

What can we say about this most venerable of all campers that hasn't been said already? Reliability is about as good as it gets for any van as some of these engines are good for 200,000 miles without major rebuilds.

With about as much 'street-cred' as you can get in a camper, high residual value, an abundance of spare parts and rock solid build quality they remain an excellent choice.
