Now available for all Vanagons


Vanagon camper owners have suffered with no air conditioning or AC that was marginal. Westfalias have the A/C outlets above the rear passenger's heads so the best you can hope for in the driver or passenger seat is to have the back if your head cooled.


We offer a great solution giving you heat and A/C at the dash outlets, the floor and the defrost vents. Two additional rectangular vents are installed in the dash face and can be aimed where you want them.

Unlike the Vanagon original, but like most all modern cars, the system has air blending control so you can control the temperature of the air flow for comfort year-round. The output, whether heat or A/C, can be directed to the floor, defrost or the dash outlets. The system is capable of excellent defrosting using the evaporator to remove moisture and all the controls including the temperature and the fan speed are infinitely variable.

The air is recycled interior air so the A/C is most effective. Outside air can be introduced with the windows if desired.

We offer this installation in our shop for any Vanagon with any engine. If you have A/C already, the condenser in front of the radiator can be reused, as can the A/C compressor if it is in good condition.

Please note: If you have extra equipment in or on the dash (gauges, cruise control, etc) there may be extra labor for the installation.

We also offer a Digital Climate Control (scroll down) option to make the system even more modern. We offer two models, the DCC-2500 1-knob with digital display and the DCC-3000 3-knob style interface.

These interfaces have up to 6 temperature sensors to provide a more consistent and accurate cabin temperature.
