The T1 and T2 were vehicles that thrived more on emotion than they did on technical performance. While the engines may be reliable, they are not particularly powerful. And once you hit 100 km/h, the cab starts to get noisy. The VW campervan is a vehicle born for cruising, for sitting back, relaxing, and watching the world go by, taking it all in. Maybe our enduring love for the campervan is, in fact, the ideal antidote for the travails of everyday life.
All of the work at the Volkswagen workshop in Hanover is, without exception, done by hand. Bodywork is still repaired using hammers and welding equipment, without any laser cutting in sight. However, this does mean that the repair process can take a while. If a vehicle is particularly run-down, it can take up to a year before it is completely ready. Some customers call every week to check up on their vehicles, asking for photos.
