You will find some older VW Split Screen vans for sale that are fully restored, at least externally. They might come to be so irresistible with colorful, glossy paint finish, all leather seats and possibly a flower vase on the dash. But these camper vans are decades old, so be wary with underlying problems which will be source of really big headache. Look out for rust especially on the bottom part, the chassis on front, roof gutters, below window sills, bottom panels, wheel arches. Rust is the worst enemy of the camper van and is the most expensive to fix.
Gears of Split Screen vans are naturally hard but watch out for leaks and unusual rumble. Look out for engine leeks and there shouldn't be smoke coming out of the muffler. This might be a sign of more serious engine trouble. Lots of oil inside the engine compartment is also a sign of bad news.
Check out if all the controls are working, especially the heater. If these are not working, chances are the whole mechanism, cables and wiring would be replaced and redone. If there is a petrol smell inside the camper van, chances are the rubber pipes in the tank are ready for replacement or worse, rust has penetrated the gas tank.
