New Interior for the Vanagon

This weekend I made a run up north to Rhinelander Wis. to have my father install the table and bench he made for my beloved '86 Volkswagon Vanagon (aka. the Carmel Starship.)

When I purchased the van earlier this year, I had two options given my budget: buy a camper that was shaky mechanically, or buy a non camper that ran well. I chose the non camper, and immediately started pestering my father to hook up a table and a bench with storage space underneath.

this is what he came up with. (we also laid down some tile floor, for utility sake)

I'm super pumped to have the interior done in time for fall mountain bike trips!

Also while I was home my nephews were getting some air off of a sweet jump and since everybody loves pictures of kids, here ya go
