Isn't the sliding door on the wrong side for RHD?

just been looking into this a bit further.

Seems VW DO have listed RHD Westies.

Dunno why I didn't think of this before but if anyone has ETKA go into campmobile rather than type 2, then open something then look at V pages.

Seems it was an option from '79 up to 7/'85

There is nothing from 8/'85 onwards.

Even syncro TD westies in RHD were available.

I was just looking for a colour code for the roof of a mates Westy, and just thought I would have a look.

Wonder if any other RHD countries got them then? Japan? Australia?

Make you think doesn't it?

Thing is, VW have bothered to list them in ETKA makes you think they produced at least one for them to bother!

As I'm changing back upper storage in our van into an upper berth I found that this van was originally one of the westy installs not sold by VW!  The pop top was replaced with a Reimo hitop!  The mounting holes are on back corner and on from of center opening.  So this is the same conversion used on RHD vans with galley on wrong side.  Hope someone with a RHD westy shows up for westy fest to compare with.

Not sure if its anyones on here but there's a 'D reg' RHD westy pop top in Bristol.

Its got Club Joker stickers down the side and is a fetching mid eighties chocolate brown!

If I ever get the chance I'll have a proper look at it.

Cheers
