Creating Camp Vibes
"Create an environment in yourself and your life where good things are welcome, and good things will come."
- Zero Dean
Once you get where you're going, the next step is creating the proper camp vibe. This month's specials are aimed at helping you do just that.
First things first: Find a shady spot between two aptly-spaced trees, and hang a hammock to rest your weary bones while contemplating the clouds. After some shuteye, it's time to get to work! Pop the top, and then get your exterior table mount in place so that you can use that camper table outside the van (where it really belongs!). Crank out your awning, unfurl your outdoor mat, and breathe a sweet sigh of relief. Set up your handy campfire grill, get your stainless cookset ready, and make sure you have your campsite trash can in place. Feels a lot like home, doesn't it? Once you bring out your glow-in-the-dark bocce set, the camp vibes are pretty much complete. All that's missing is some campfire smoke, but you're on that, right?

As always, we wish you loads of fun out on the road. Make sure to share a wave to your fellow Westy Life travelers... and we'll make sure to always give you one back!

Product of the Month
ABS Door Panels (Now in Gray!)
Our popular ABS door panels are now available in gray to match your late-model Vanagon's interior! Check out the full ABS bundle here, and save some cash on a beautiful set of nearly-indestructible new panels.
GoWesty-Designed Oil Splash Plates (Vanagon)
The OEM oil splash plates have gone the way of the dinosaur, so we set our engineering team to the task of designing a less-expensive, smarter version. They rose to the occasion, and we think you'll agree. This new version will replace our previous offering, and it'll save you some serious cash!
We kindly request that you refrain from emailing and/or calling our sales staff regarding availability of these coming-soon products. They will be live in our New Products section as soon as they're ready!
Fresh Water Hose Replacement Kit
Video of the Month
Have you actually looked at your fresh water hose system? It's pretty scary to think that you're actually using that water to "clean" your dishes. This simple kit will give your fresh water system a nice refresh, and our handy video will help you install it!
