PostSubject: Westfalia Trailers Restoration Parts Web Resources   Thu Mar 28, 2013 1:51 pm

With purchase decision of a Westfalia trailer for my VW collection, I had to embark on a journey to explore more about these little but rare collectibles. To my surprise, there is not much on the subject that can be easily found on the "www". No proper documentation/brochures available online anywhere (not even on the Samba), or a solid/consistent source of parts either.

Collectors seemed rare and the restoration parts even rarer. Still had to go ahead with buying my first ever Westfalia trailer (or any kind of trailer for that matter) so ended up buying this 1976 Westfaila 'Essen' Trailer, which needs restoration as soon as it arrives (its on its way to Pakistan at the moment).

The 'only' organised effort that I could find anywhere on the "www" on the subject and to somehow bring together the trailer collectors was made by this gentleman, Erick Sowder aka VW JUNKY @ the Samba, who has put together this Facebook Group called Westfalia Trailers/Anhanger/Caravan

Erick is doing what could have been done long ago, putting pieces of puzzles together, hunting far and wide and trying to organize the related information on the subject of Westfalia trailers.

So that's about the man. Now lets talk about the businesses who are doing their bit to make hard to find restoration parts available for Westfalia trailers. You would be pretty disappointed to know that there are very few. I am listing (for the moment) a couple which I found most organised/consistent in their efforts to provide restoration parts:

Netherlands: Mike de Rooy of westytrailers.com aka Mike R @ the Samba, Michel aka Globusoverland @ the Samba
USA: Alex of so23westfalia.com
Belgium: (For Westfalia Blank ID Tags) Bob of Belgium aka bob1 @ the Samba
UK: Stuart of westfaliasparesuk.com
Germany: herrzyp.de

More I would post as I go and I come across.
