From the Manufacturer
This authentic camper van is a replica of the classic Volkswagen Camper Van from 1962. Every iconic feature is here! On the outside, the terrific detailing includes 'V' shape three-way color split at the front, rounded roof and window frames, opening 'splittie' safari windshield, opening doors, iconic pop-up roof with textile curtain surround, roof rack, rear side air intake vents and lots more! The detailing is equally impressive on the inside, from the authentic VW air-cooled flat four cylinder ‘boxer’ engine, front cabin bench seat, gear stick, angled dashboard and iconic spherical speedometer, to custom LEGO features like folding rear bench seat, folding dinette table, closet with mirror and even a painting!

IN BACK....there is a table with bench that folds down to a bed a faucet and sink and a fridge.
if i had to not like anything about it, it's that the front wheels don't turn and the steering wheel is for looks only.
even the inside decor has a feel of the 60s. this has got to be one of the best and most detaled looking lego sets i've seen.
it's a little too big for a mini fig i think. although i am thinking of getting the skaterboarder and surfer dude and chick to stand alongside it.
if you like LEGOs you will enjoy this flash back to the 60s. this is how we lived and traveled before there was worries about gas and pollution :-)
Took us probably 3-4 hours total to build it. It helps to get a large, flat box to dump all the pieces into rather than searching through the plastic bags for each piece.
My only complaint is that the roof piece at the front of the bus (above the drivers and passengers seats) kept crumbling apart when you build it, there wasn't enough support Lego's for it to hold as you tried putting on another piece. Eventually got it to work somehow, won't be touching that part again!
Overall, it is awesome. It sits on our shelf in all its Lego glory.
Once completed the camper van is absolutely fantastic looking. This one looks wonderful sitting on my dresser. The biggest complaint I heard concerning this build was in assembling the front roof. One reviewer even resorted to gluing it and although I can see their point I didn't have nearly that level of difficulty. I would also say that with the density of this model and the number of small pieces it is much easier to do with modest or small sized hands. It's also probably a lot harder if you don't have fingernails to pull pieces back apart. This one will probably take three or four hours and if I were to do it all over again I would have done a lot more prep work in organizing the pieces before jumping into it.
Between The Black Pearl and The Camper Van I enjoyed building the Black Pearl more if for nothing else than the separation of the pieces. Again, I love a challenge and the Camper Van was a total blast to build but I felt that much of the challenge was unnecessary. There is a ton of detail like gas and break pedals that move up and down and a movable stick shift. One chair can be folded down to form a bed although the idea of it is somewhat cooler than the actual execution. I'll also say that the drapes look better in pictures and videos than in reality and they were one of the tougher parts to put on which was certainly unexpected. Like many of the other major sets this one is not to scale with the minifigs and does not come with any minifigs. You couldn't, for instance, have it going down the street of your modulars without looking absurdly oversized.
In the end I very much enjoyed assembling the VW Camper Van and would have no shame putting it out for display as it's just that cool looking. I wouldn't doubt if years from now this becomes a sought after set although you'd have to refrain from assembling it to really keep the value and what fun is that. It's a hefty price but this is a high quality premium set so you're paying extra to get more. I wouldn't recommend this set for younger kids or for playing with. The wheels are not steerable so it's limited to forward and back and like I said it's not scalable with other sets. This really is a set built for display. Hopefully LEGO will come out with similar sets in the upcoming years.
