Well there is now because I've got one, a Westfalia that is, and would love to hear from anyone who has or knows anything about them.

Wilkomen im Motorhome Fun!

Westfalia are one of the pioneers in van conversions. They know what they are doing, unlike some converters!

Sleep easy, good choice!:thumb:

Newbie
We are thrilled to be joining the Westfalia club - picking up our new Westfalia Columbus 601D on Friday - so excited! It has taken us 2 years to decide what to buy, but we just love this PVC. We have joined this site (and subscribed) as complete newbies to motorhomes - hope to get lots of advice and tips from here. First step - download the MotorHome Pre-purchase Checklist to help us with the 2hr handover on Friday.

Westfalia Columbus 641E....Thinking of picking one of these vans up...searched the forum and couldn’t see much about them. Anyone got one or any other Columbus model? This will be a 2017 model. Basically fixed rear bed, Fiat Ducato 6.36 m long PVC, side dinette mid washroom with an extra berth with a fold out bench.
Appreciate any positive or negative experiences of these vans or this make...

Had a 600D now awaiting another 600D.... long story! Positive regarding quality of conversion, semi positive with regard to Westfalia as a company. Fiat professional a definitive negative, but the shining light for me is campersales formerly vwcampersales. Rob is a really genuine bloke, he goes more than the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction. The rest of the team there are also top notch, I wouldn't go anywhere else for a Westfalia.

Do feel free to pm me if you want more info, but I'm sure Wobbles has put you on the right track.

I share your experience regarding both Westfalia and Campersales. We bought an Amundsen 600D and have been very happy with it. Took it to Provence in April/May this year. Agree Rob is a 'Top Man' and pleasure to deal with.

Thanks for that. I located the wires in the cabinet and at the leisure batteries in my first Columbus and have had the mifi aerial etc plus battery monitor, extra USB's and a raft of other things to fit for ages.
