VW Camper Van Tent

VW Camper Van Tent

We love it when a van comes together

  •  Looks just like the real thing, man
  •  Officially licensed
  •  Zip-separated rooms
  •  Sleeps up to four adults


If you love music, mud and Mother Nature you’re probably heading to a camp site at some point this summer. But why take shelter in some dull, conventional tent when you can recreate the Summer of Love in the hippie-tastic VW Camper Van Tent.

Officially licensed, this stunning four-man (or lady, natch) tent is a luxe, full-size replica of the iconic 1965 Volkswagen Camper Van synonymous with 60s counterculture. It’s so evocative you can almost hear the Mamas and the Papas singing California Dreamin’ every time you feast your eyes on its beautifully breadloaf-ish form. Indeed we half expected Mama Cass to tumble out when we first saw this groovy Vee-Dub. You’ll be the envy of the campsite!

But there’s more to this highly realistic pretend hippie/surfermobile than mere good looks. Just like its vehicular counterpart you can stand up inside – handy if you don’t fancy crawling around on your hands and knees after a day at the main stage. What’s more its fabric roof and sides are 3000mm and 1000mm respectively – mighty impressive, especially when you consider British Military spec is only 800mm (and we consider things like that quite a lot).

Factor in two zip-separated double-size rooms, allowing couples to sleep/knit yoghurt/spread the love in private, plus an outer that can be put up first to offer some shelter as you erect the other bits and bobs, and you’re looking at the greatest thing to hit the world of boho living since… well, since the original VW Camper Van. All together now, ‘If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to take your Vee-Dub Camper Tent…’

Is it completely waterproof?
Louise Bartmann, London - 1st December 2013
Firebox says: No tent is ever 100% Waterproof Louise. However this tent can withstand up to 3000mm on the roof and 1000mm on the sides.
Mine arrived yesterday, very simple to erect and looks fantastic. Quality excellent. The envy of my friends. Can't wait to book the first camping trip. Thanks Firefox.

Firebox says: Glad you liked it Paul!
I absolutely love this! I so badly want to own one. The 'flower power' one just says me. Can you tell me please, would a queen sized air mattress fit in one side?
Kathy Anderson, USA - 30th July 2013
Firebox says: Hey Kathy, the size inside measures 388cm(L) x 182.5cm(H) x 145cm(D) so you can measure up your queen mattress and see if it fits inside!
My niece got one for Xmas yesterday and we put it up at night in the dark in a matter of 1/2 hr and it looks fantastic. Now my grown up daughter wants one they are so spacious. Great idea.
Gail, Australia - 26th December 2012
Hi there can you tell me the specs of the Lisence plate as I want to get a custom sticker to go over it.... Just to make it MINE thx Jo.
Jo Barry, Australia - 18th October 2012
Firebox says: All of the license plates on the VW Camper Van Tent are H-VW 1965. As the tent is modeled on the 1965 Camper Van =))) JB-VW 2012 Sticker would definitely make it your own! ;)
