Tonke Van XL

World-class on a small footprint

Tonke Van XL

The Tonke VAN XL is only 40cm longer than the VAN, also fits in a parking lot, drives just as good, but offers slightly more space.

The best and most beautiful VAN of the Netherlands and beyond. Luckily our customers see this too. Our quality without compromises, the design and the details. Many customers who did not think they needed a car (especially enthusiastic bike riders) fall in love with the VAN. And off course they want to continue cycling! And customers who thought they would need a second car, have sold it within a few months after getting their VAN. This camper is perfectly suitable for daily use. It is not much longer  and barely consumes more fuel compared to a regular passengercar. Also the depreciation is smaller than most passengercars and most importantly: the VAN is much more versatile.

The Tonke VAN is developed by a team of craftsmen (technicians, designers, woodworkers) that travel themselves as well. Everything is functional, indestructable and beautifully executed.
In no time the roof pops up and creates headroom and an extra bed. And in another instant the broad bench seat below turnes into a comfortable bed. Four people can sleep spacious (optionally even five) and five persons (optionally even eight persons!) can travel safely in seatbelts. The rear bench is easily slidable, which creates a tremendous lot of storage space, or more living space. The (optionally) turnable kitchen creates much space and makes the camper even more versatile.
The Tonke VAN is being built on a Volkswagen Transporter (T6.1).
