Fitting the original VW rear roof rack

Another cool and useful feature of the VW Early Bay Westfalia camper, is the attention to practical details when it comes to camping trips.

This is nicely demonstrated by the fact that the rear fixed section of the fibreglass Westfalia roof has an integral 6 bar roof rack included as part of the design! The original metal bars have been refurbished and painted, before getting pop riveted back into place again.

So now, if all your luggage does not fit inside your camper, you have some extra storage up on top – sorted!
