So next time you feel stuck in the campground and don’t feel ready to pack up everything just to have a drive to town, think about buying a used volkswagen beetle!

Where Can I Find Used Volkswagen Beetle or VW Camper Vans for Sale?

One excellent local resource is Craigslist.  You’re almost certain to find a used volkswagen beetle or vw camper vans on Craigslist.  The good part here is that it’s free.  The downside with Craigslist is that you’re most likely dealing with individuals with whom you have no recourse in case of problems.  Another option is eBay Motors, where you can also shop locally, but with a good buyer protection plan to back up your purchase.  If you’d like to take a look, here’s a link to the eBay Motors site, where you’ll see a display for about a thousand used volkswagens.  You can dial in the search by model, model year, mileage, location, condition, etc.  And if you create an eBay account if you don’t already have one, you can look at “advanced search” options to see sales history data.  Here’s the link:Used Volkswagen

Is a Used Volkswagen a Good Investment?

A used volkswagen mechanic would be a great person to ask about the resale value.  In fact it’s a good idea to have a mechanic as part of your team when you purchase any car.  Most people know to ask for the Carfax, which should show you the history of the vehicle if it’s been in collisions.  Just as important is having a mechanic look it over to determine if the vw you’ve found is a good investment.  Since this type of car tends to be at the lower end of the scale for price, and the upper end of the scale for durability, vw’s are generally considered a good investment.
