A completely rebuilt new version of my 4-wide VW T1 Camper Van, getting closer to the big 10220 Camper
About this creation
After seeing Isaac's and Hot Rod's 4-wide VW busses with opening doors I was heavily inspired to add an interior to my Camper, too. I started building an interior with LDD some weeks ago, but I hadn't found the time to order the missing parts until last week.

I got the last missing parts last week and immediately started building the new version.
I almost had to rebuild it completely to make place for the interior, so this is my version 3.0:

A little change on the front: I moved the headlights 1/2 stud higher, but I had to let go the cheese wedges for that.

I rearranged the side windows and added a mirror on the left side. The rear end didn't change much, I only replaced the two 1x2/2x2 brackets by one of the newer 1x2/2x4 brackets.

On the right side I added opening doors just like Isaac and Hot Rod did on their vans. I kept the roll bars for the windows on the opening doors.

The roof pieces for the open and closed pop up roof didn't change.

And now my favourite part: The interior

The rear seats and the table can be folded for the night. There wasn't enough space under the windows to fold down the table. It can be folded up, instead.

Doors and pop up roof closed.

And the doors opened again

And a closer look

LEGO Nils likes the Camper, too

And then, even before I got time to post the photos, I made V3.1. I realized that the colour scheme looked better on the previous model. So I changed the plates under the side windows back from white to red.

I think it really looks better this way. The mirror now is red, too.

As I didn't have the red hinge plate for the table I had to think about how to replace it. What I had was a double "open O" holder in red and a rigid 3mm tube in black. I think it looks even better than the other version.

And this is how it looks with the table folded up.

Credits: Please take a look at the 4-wide T1 models built by Isaac, Hot Rod, Dylan, Klingus and Ben and you'll find one or another detail I used on this model.

So this is V3.1 of my 4-wide VW T1 Camper Van. I hope you like it :-))

Hi Nils O. I know these 4-wide vehicles are hard to make, so they look like the real model. You have hit the mark, with your fantastic VW T1 family.

You sir, are the master of 4-wides. I've been sitting here for the last few minutes trying to fault this model - but I can't, plain and simple. Fantastic build, it's great to see how you constantly change your design in the pursuit of perfection. :)

Perhaps LEGO should make a set of this. Something like "Collectors Edition". Awesome and outstanding in details! 5/5

Quoting Gabor Horvath ... But I think, it is difficult to close or open the doors, because the diagonal of them is longer, than 2 studs. Is it true? ...
You are right. It works OK without the roof mounted, but you need some force to close and open them.

Wow Nils! This is fantastic! The interior is the best. You made a very good miniature work there. But I think, it is difficult to close or open the doors, because the diagonal of them is longer, than 2 studs. Is it true? But it's great work! :)

Finally! A solution to the "I want the new campervan, but it is so expensive" problem of mine. Thank you, Sir, you made my day.

Fantastic. I absolutely agree with Master Shifu Leo. It is as refined as it can get and looks sturdy and highly playable at the same time. Surely the best T1 camper at this scale that I have ever seen. You've done an awesome job, mate!
