A Business Called Eastfalia|
Eastfalia has been set up to satisfy the surging demand in the UK for late model Volkswagen camper vans.
With the market place for Split & Bay Window camper vans now fully mature, Eastfalia‘s core business is selling,maintaining 1980 onwards models,
initially principally T25/T3 variants – Westfalia Joker, Club Joker, California, Atlantic and their ‘weekender’ cousins - Magnum, Whitestar,
Bluestar, Redstar and Limited Last Edition Multivan’s. These vans offer a level of practicality, useablility, space, equipment & genuine everyday potential that the earlier T1 & T2’s cannot match.
We are not going to start the aesthetics discussion (T1 & T2’s Vs T3’s) apart from to finish it with - ‘We love them all!’. Period.
With the UK market for these wonderful vehicles very much in it’s infancy, prices are currently at the bottom of the depreciation curve
will, hence, rise over the next ten years to match the values of their ancestry. They currently represent superb value for money. All of our vans are sourced in Europe, with 95% coming from Germany, and are all left-hand drive. Westfalia converted right-hand drive
models do exist but were made in such tiny numbers that they will never satisfy current and future demand. As buyers will quickly find out, there are many vans purporting to be ‘Westfalia’ but a large percentage of these will be home made conversions,
in one way or another, but using some element of genuine Westfalia equipment – interior, kitchen unit, roof (high or pop top), pilot
seats etc…. All ‘Westfalia’ vans sold by Eastfalia are GENUINE WESTFALIA conversions.
Much as we love our vans, and never tire of finding new ones, we have no aspirations to look at the same vehicles day after day. Our pricing
is very competitive and we aspire to have the fastest stock turnover in our marketplace. Eastfalia aims to allow as many people as possible
to enjoy the pleasure derived from owning a VW camper. All we ask of our customers is to appreciate that these vans are not new and have had a life to date, having been enjoyed by their previous
owners. Much as we love to find them (and sell them!), mythical bargains, barn find show winners and mothered heirlooms in the form of a
T25 camper van, are very thin on the ground.
With many years of experience & huge enthusiasm, we are happy to offer impartial advice on all aspects of VW camper van ownership (with
a definite bias towards our own vehicles!). Please feel free to call us for a chat about your prospective purchase.

Although we are currently focused on establishing Eastfalia as the UK’s premier T25/T3 Westfalia specialist, we will be quickly moving
towards a policy of selling later T4 and T5 California models.
Similarly, Westfalia have converted (and continue to convert) other models beyond T1 – T5, and we will continue stocking some of these models as
well in the near future. These range from the LT28 based Sven Hedin & Florida to the Mercedes based Marco Polo (Vito) and James Cook
