Hi, I am Christopher Mankowski
I am an artist and a VW enthusiast. I've driven all across the country, often on tour, and even all the way through Mexico to Guatemala. Traveling is a passion for sure. Nothing like taking road trips in a classic like a Vanagon. But when I'm out of the country or off doing other things I like to share her with others, and try to make a little extra money to make to keep up the repairs and make fun improvements.
If you are looking for stroll down memory lane this eclectic 1984 VW Vanagon is the choice for you!

We were instructed to pick up the van at a mechanic and when we arrived, it was still being worked on. The wait was under an hour, which wasn’t hugely disruptive to our plans, but it set the tone. Apparently the prev…
This is a great opportunity to experience a vintage camper. Christopher is a great host and had amazing communication. The camper is in good shape mechanically but has seen many miles so expect that. If you are not very comfortable driving a manual transmission with no power steering it may take some getting used to. Overall I had a great experience.
