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

Our office is at 31650 Dunlap Blvd Yucaipa California 92399.

Yes. We can assist you with paperwork required to do so. You'll need to meet the camper at the border, and we will arranage for shipping to whatever port of entry you desire.

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.

Towing capacity of a Rialta is 2000lbs, and 4400lbs for the Full Camper and Weekender versions (recommend assisted braking on trailer).

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.

There are no diesel Eurovan conversions. If you see one in the USA, it's been converted, and may not be legal to register in your state.

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.

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. We sell to the world, and we've yet to find a finance company that will work with us to do so. Your local credit union or bank is your best bet for financing.

Sometimes, but never with serious accidents reported on their AutoCheck vehicle history, and this report is ALWAYS available to you prior to purchase. We NEVER sell vehicles with salvaged titles.

Yes, and sometimes as second homes so you may write off the interest :)

All Rialtas are 21'8" long, the Weekenders are 16' long, and the Full Campers are 17' long.

VW™ stopped importing the chassis in 2003. Winnebago continued converting chassis into Rialtas until they ran out in 2005. Production of the Weekender and Full Camper stopped in 2003.

Surprisingly...the answer is yes, you can. I know it sounds strange, but we've confirmed this with several RV specialists.

USPS Express Mail box. Overnight to most US locations :) Actually, the campers are shipped on transport trucks.

All the tea. You heard me….all the tea :)

Yes, all the Rialtas have a generator.

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.

That's what I've been told to believe, and I always do what I'm told to do.

Mouse over Shop in the menu above, and select Campers.

Yes, but we must give priority to vehicles we're currently reconditioning. Please call for an appointment.

Yes. Since many of the campers we recondition have custom items added, we can't begin until we receive full payment.

No. Currently, the wait time for picking up a camper depends on the number of campers ahead of you in the queue. This varies throughout the year, and is based solely on demand.

No. They sell too quickly for us to set them aside as rentals.

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.

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 (we’ve had people remove the seats that turn into a bed behind the driver’s and passenger’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.

Yes! We send you home with a copy of our Certified Pre-Owned Inspections and Repairs sheet so you know exactly what was performed on your unit.

Certified pre-owned vehicles or campers sold in California must:

  • Include at minimum a limited service contract with roadside assistance.
  • Have an accurate odometer or proof of replacement (sticker inside door).
  • Not been repurchased under any state lemon law or the federal lemon law.
  • Not have previously sustained frame or unibody damage.
  • Not have a title branded as a lemon law buyback or as a flood, junk, salvage, or nonrepairable vehicle.
  • Not have previously sustained damage in a collision, fire, or flood that materially decreases its performance or safety.
  • Include a copy of the inspection report showing which specific components of the vehicle were inspected in the certification process.

All campers come with a 3 Month/3000 mile limited service contract. Most campers qualify for extension of that included service contract. Maximum is 5 year/60000 miles. Service contract is not available for some non-Eurovan conversions. Please ask about this when purchasing.

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.
