The Genesis of the Camper Van

Escape at the wheel of the famous Split Combi, the ancestor of the VW combis.

This is the very first model marketed from the early 50s. The vw combi T1 (1st model of the Transporter family) clearly marked its time, with its vintage look and its safari windshield in two opening parts, which will earn it the nickname of Split.

It is equipped with a 4-cylinder flat engine cooled by air. Like the Beetle, the engine is also rear mounted. The Type 1 is a unique design among commercial vans with this engine architecture.

Ideal for your communication or event operations, it is part of our EVENT Pro offer. Within this framework, we are able to propose you a customized offer on 1 or a fleet of combis T1/T2/T3 and vehicles of collection integrating specific additional services.
