VW T3 Danbury Travelette 

Volkswagen T25 / T3 Danbury Travelette Camper Model History

1980 VW T25 Danbury Travelette Camper

Circa 1980 Danbury introduced the T25 / T3 Volkswagen Danbury Travelette. It had either a standard tin top or an optional side elevating pop top roof. It was advertised as having seven forward facing seats. The layout consisted of two buddy seats behind the driver and passenger seat. The back rests on the buddy seats reverse so they become rear facing to form the dinette. The seats folded to allow either two single beds or a double. The buddy seat behind the passenger seat contained a 2 burner stove and grill. The engine options were either the 1600 cc or the 2000 cc CU air cooled engines.
