One of my most popular designs in the past was a VW Camper Van T-Shirt - Model T1. Having been known to travel the country in nothing but my old VW Camper, I wanted to pay respect to this glorious timeless vehicle by showing you the best VW Campervan T-Shirts.
The model specifically I want to feature today is the T1. Unlike modern camper vans, the T1 is one that is globally recognised, and let's be absolutely honest looks amazing still to this very day.
The Volkswagen Type 1, affectionately known as the VW Campervan or Kombi, is an iconic symbol of the 1960s and 1970s counterculture movement. Its unique design, featuring a compact yet roomy interior, made it the perfect vehicle for road trips, camping adventures, and cross-country explorations. The T1 VW Campervan's endearing "face" and rounded body, combined with its air-cooled, rear-mounted engine, transformed it into a cult classic that continues to captivate enthusiasts worldwide.
Today, vintage T1 VW Campervans are cherished by collectors and nostalgic travellers alike, serving as a testament to a bygone era of free-spirited adventure and wanderlust.

What a lovely campervan t-shirt this is! The design features a black camper van on a retro-style sunset background. The text reads "Never Underestimate an old man with a Campervan".
The T-shirt is a 50/50 polyester cotton mix which ensures the T-shirt feels soft to the touch and fairly lightweight when wearing.
The print style is screen printed with white text that wraps the retro-style t-shirt.
Although the image above is on a black t-shirt, the campervan t-shirt is also available in Navy and Heather Blue in sizes Small, Medium, Large, XL.
I couldn't resist this Campervan T-shirt, the text alone brought a smirk to my face as I remembered past times in my own camper. The text reads: "What happens in the Van stays in the Van".
The overall design looks very well presented with an orangey/red camper van (T1) positioned sideways with the white text above and below.
Available in men's, women's and children's sizes, I am sure any campervan owner would really appreciate this unique t-shirt.
✅ Machine Washable
Very similar to the first t-shirt featured in my best camper van t-shirt, but without any text. The campervan is pictured from the front in black and sits in front of a retro-inspired sunset.
Available in Small, Medium, Large and XL Sizes, this Screen Printed Campervan T-Shirt is available in a Black, Navy, Cranberry, Olive, Dark Heather, Heather Grey, Heather Blue and Royal Blue.
I really love the retro feel to this t-shirt and it's already in my basket for my next payday.
Now we're talking! The iconic T1 Campervan in Red sits beautifully on a white t-shirt with the side awning erected ready to serve cool colas on a hot summer's day.
This t-shirt really screams to me and reminds me vividly of my younger years.
Available in sizes from Small all the way up to 5XL - this is surely a Camper Van gift that would wrap up really nice for that avid camper lover.
The T-Shirt itself is a Gildan brand, and a brand that I know very well having built my very own business using nothing more than the premium Gildan products.
Pictured on a blue/team background the white T1 VW Campervan sits camera face on with the words "Camping Life" written underneath.
Available in Small, Medium, Large and XL and a range of different colours including Black, Yellow, Khaki and Navy.
The screen-printed design features a moon and a few trees - really setting the scene of camping under the stars.

My "best" selection wouldn't be complete without a Christmas-themed Campervan T-shirt. This design is essentially a Christmas present ready to give to that Campervan fanatic.
The design itself is a full-colour design with a yellow campervan surrounded by Christmas presents and 2x green Christmas trees.
The background has snow falling with the text "All I want for Christmas is a Camper Van" in a bouncy/fun font.
Available in Kids/children sizes as well as Adults (Men and women). The colours available are nothing to be sniffed at with the design available on black, blue, green, and pink t-shirts.
I find choosing 1 specific t-shirt very difficult, but the winner for me is the California Long Beach Campervan T-Shirt. The colours, the style and the design all really make me smile inside.
T-Shirts are not just about comfort, but a way to reminisce about our earlier years when life was all about being a free spirit.
