We know there's a lot of old school folks out there that are hesitant about buying online, but that's how it's done nowadays. The fact that you found us means you have a computer. Remember when you first got that new fangled contraption? (I do, and eventually found out you can't fix it by slapping it on the side or the top like an old television). Buying vehicles online is the best way to go. You see a better selection and better pricing. Please check out all the information we have gathered up for you.
It is a fact that a new motor home often experiences the greatest amount of depreciation in RV price within the first few years of ownership. This means that the vehicle is often worth less than the amount still owed on the financing. A used RV purchase from Camper Heaven has already experienced this dramatic depreciation during its lifetime. A used RV often will hold its relative motorhome value better than most other RV's in the market, especially a new one.
No worries, all mechanical parts for the Eurovans are still available, and will be for a long time. You will also notice that we carry mostly very low mileage Campers. Most of our customers purchase the warranty for peace of mind. Along with that and the fact that most people will only drive their recreational vehicle about 7000 miles a year (like driving coast to coast and back), and the durability of the German engineering behind the VW powertrain and the eggs are all in YOUR basket.
Pop Top Heaven has been in business since 2003. We are proud to continue to provide the ultimate RV vacation experience for thousands of families from around the globe. Our vehicles remain in the absolute finest condition due to our exacting maintenance standards. The used motorhome resale value of a VW Camper sold by us remains the best in the business. Our used RV sale prices reflect our continuing commitment to providing top service to all of our customers.
We don't make it until you buy it. We do this because we have no idea what options a customer may want. Awning? Bilstein Shocks? Solar Panel? Baja Package? The delivery date depends entirely on the number of vehicles ahead of yours in the queue. It can be as short as 3 months, or as long as 9 months. With the global pandemic, all our delivery times are greatly delayed.
Heck no...Well, sometimes. The Eurovan Conversions were sold by only a handful of Volkswagen dealers, but because they're built on the Eurovan chassis, at heart they're a VW™ . Only the Rialta version requires a larger bay in a shop to be worked on, and some VW dealers are just not set up be able to service them. That being said, many VW dealers still do, but we recommend finding a good local mechanic that can get to know your rig and take good care of it. See a comprehensive list of mechanics who work on the Eurovan models, along with customer reviews at Roadhaus.com
We are available Monday - Friday 9:00AM - 4:30PM and Saturday by appointment (excluding holidays). We are a small outfit, so we respectfully ask that you call (909) 389-1491 first because we're often out and about during the work day.
Yes, you are more than welcome to stop by Monday - Friday 9:00AM - 4:30PM excluding holidays, but we give priority to customers who have scheduled an appointment. We will do our best to accommodate you.
Due to popular demand, we are now taking a limited number of appointments to work on vehicles outside our inventory. We have an on-site RV tech and mechanic with years of experience working on Eurovan conversions. Please contact us to see if we are available to help with your Camper.
We carry Eurovan Full Camper and Weekender model years 1997 to 2003 when Winnebago and Westfalia stopped production. We carry 1997-2005 versions of the Eurovan Rialta. We do not carry models earlier than 1997 due to their low HP engines. 1997-2000 (2001 for the Rialta) 2.8 VR6 2,792 cc 138 HP @ 4,500 RPM 2001-2003 for the Eurovan Full Camper and Weekender, and 2003-2005 Rialta models 2.8 VR6 2,792 cc 201 HP @ 6,200 RPM
We've only had to replace one engine in our history. As for how long they last, that's a tricky question. We've seen Rialtas with over 200K miles, still going strong. The general consensus is around 300K miles.
No, but we work with a few finance companies. We've found it difficult to find finance companies that will work with us since we sell vehicles in all 50 states. Click the Financing link under How to Buy in the menu above.
Nada and KBB are based on a computer formula, and do not take into account consumer demand, the uniqueness of these vehicles, and in most cases, the significant cost associated with the camper conversion. Due to complaints about this, NADA and KBB have actually removed most Eurovan conversions from their books.
Yes. The Rialtas are equipped with separate releases for black and grey water, and the Full Camper has a single water release. If the camping site is equipped with a connection, you may connect your grey water directly to the dump, and simply open the valve.
We don't list prices on the site because in the past, other dealers who didn't specialize in Eurovan Conversions, and happened to pick one up as a trade-in, were taking our pricing, and assuming we were a 'wash and flip' shop (like most dealers), used our pricing and marked up their Campers to astronomical prices. This is our way of keeping all Eurovan Conversion prices at every dealership reasonable. Just click the Contact Us link under Questions in the menu above, and we'll send you a list of current and incoming inventory with pricing.
With the exception of the Dodge and Mercedes Campers, all vehicles we sell are AUL Certified. Our Base Price Campers come with an AUL 3 month/3000 mile limited service contract. Our Full Price 2001-2005 Campers come with a 2 year/24,000 mile service contract, and our 1997-2000 Campers come with a 1 year/12,000 mile service contract. We have more comprehensive service contracts available for longer coverage periods on 2001-2005 models at additional cost.
The Full Camper and Rialta models require the seats be facing forward. If your steering wheel is locked, move it back and forth while gently turning the key. The steering wheel lock feature is by design. If you don't relieve the pressure on the steering wheel, the key will not turn.
New York state wildlife expert Richard Thomas found that a woodchuck chucks about 35 cubic feet of dirt in the course of digging a burrow. Thomas reasoned that if a woodchuck could chuck wood, he would chuck an amount equivalent to the weight of the dirt, or 700 pounds. We hope you are pleased to know this.
For the vast majority of RV buyers, the interest on their loan is deductible as second home mortgage interest. To qualify, interest expense deductions on the RV must exceed the taxpayer's standard deduction. In addition, the RV must:
1.Be used as security for the loan.
2.Be rented out less than 15 days per year.
3.Have basic sleeping, toilet, and cooking facilities.
Believe it or not, a port-a-potty qualifies as a toilet, so no worries there. Also, almost all RV types-motorhomes, van campers, travel trailers, truck campers and even some folding camping trailers-qualify under these conditions. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) publishes two booklets with helpful information regarding the tax deductibility of RV loan interest. "Publication 936-Home Interest Deduction" and "Publication 523-Selling Your Home" are available by calling the IRS at 1-800-829-3676.
Yes. We don't post pictures of the Campers before they're reconditioned. Why? First, the photos don't represent the finished product. Second, they all look pretty much the same, especially the Full Campers. We post photos of other vehicles we sell because their looks vary quite a bit. We will provide you with photos of any vehicle you like, just let us know.
You can't because they're no longer made. BUT...the Eurovan remotes share the same frequency as a Golf or Jetta. So you can purchase a key fob for one of these models, and have it programmed to work with a Eurovan. The only difference is that the truck or panic buttons will not function.
Yes, but it would cost a small fortune. Depending on the unit, wiring, propane lines, exterior vents, heater, pumps, etc. would need to be moved. Some items can be removed (weâ€™ve had people remove the seats that turn into a bed behind the driverâ€™s and passengerâ€™s seats in the QD models to give them more room in the front of the vehicle, etc.). It would cost far more than just finding the floorplan you like.
This is by design. Since Winnebago and Westfalia removed the top of the vehicle, there's nowhere to run vents. The switches on the dash only set it from room temperature to hot. Even with it shut off, there will still be some bleed through of air when driving.
You are always welcome to visit our office and view any vehicle here, however, if you sign a contract to purchase a vehicle, submit payment for a vehicle, or take delivery of a vehicle in person at our Yucaipa California office, you will be subject to California state sales tax (currently 7.75%). You will receive a credit for taxes paid when you register your vehicle in your home state. If you do not want to pay California state sales tax, we can arrange for transport across the California border, where you may take possession of your vehicle. Remember, we can easily arrange to dispatch your vehicle for transport to a licensed and insured transporter to all lower 48 states and Alaska, border entries for Canada, or to a port for delivery to Hawaii.
