This is a beautiful 1987 Westfalia Camper.

-I think this Westfalia is the nicest one on the market regardless of miles.

-If you have never owned a Vanagon Westfalia you might not know that these have an odometer failure problem that affects 100% of these, just check with GoWesty, they have mentioned it in a few articles.

-Do you really believe that so many of these Westfalias that are 25-30 years old only have 70K, 90K, or even 120K miles, no way.

-Maybe 1 in a 100, or 2 in a 100 really do have low miles, but you really cant save miles anyway.

-Everything breaks down with age too, plastic and rubber age with time, paint breaks down, metal fatigues. 100,000 miles is a lot different on a 5 year old vehicle versus a 30 year old vehicle, you cant compare the two. When you buy a Vanagon Westfalia forget what the odometer says.

-Ive been fixing up Westfalias for over 25 years and I used to think the odometer problem affected maybe 10% of them.

-But then after I looked at 50 or so Westfalias for sale and some of the odometers were not working, and some of the owners told me they had just fixed the odometers, I started to think this must affect at least half the Vanagon Westfalias.

-Well, now years later after looking at over 300 Westfalias for sale and owning 72 of them, talking to people at GoWesty, Vancafe and others in the business, I am now convinced this odometer problem affects 100% of Vanagon Westfalias, and sometimes more than once. -After years of looking at so many of these Westfalias for sale, Ive figured out a way to tell how many miles are really on them, not exactly of course, but close.
