Are you proud of your Westy? Post it, then!

If you are proud of your Airstream Sprinter Westfalia (Mercedes James Cook outside North America) then let everyone know!

Post photos, links, your website, or simply testamonials!

Howdy Folks -

My wife and I have been enjoying our Westfalia for a bit over a year now. We have taken trips that have taken us south to the Florida keys and north as far as Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I've had a few VW Westfalias in the past and enjoyed them to no end so I was very excited to see that the Mercedes James Cook was going to be offered in the US (a James Cook model has been available in Europe for 30 years or so!).

Here is a favorite photo of our Westy at the West Point campground in New York:

Hi.

Tomorrow we'll be celebrating our first year of fun with "Hans", our Westy. We're a family of four which has spent the past 12 months exploring California every other weekend, and we've taken two longer holidays as far as Santa Barbara, and as far north as British Columbia, Canada. It's been an awesome ride, and we enjoy every second we're in the van. You can read about our adventures at www.ourwesty.net.

Hi BrianJoan,

Welcome to the forum. See if Zach comes on to welcome you. He's rather sporadic but an excellent source of info for Westies.

I just noticed that this post is now WAY out of date!

We've now had our Westy for about 4 years and we still love it!

It's now been as far north as Newfoundland (on a trip we took nearly 2 years ago) and our toddler son thinks its' his own personal play house.

So far we haven't made it any further west than Jackson Center, OH, though . . .

James Cook arriving 230 years after Captain Cook at Ho'okena Hawai'i.
Hello Westy2005 -

Hopefully your James Cook won't be mistakenly confused with Lono . . .

Wow, great job restoring the roof. Did you replace both the skylight and the corner windows? Where did you get them?
We just fixed the skylight cause we weren't able to find a replacement. We ended up taking the whole thing out to work on. My husband was able to hook up switches for the light and another one to open it cause the remote was giving us a hard time. As for the upper side window, we found a guy that could make us one, but wanted $1,200.00. We decided to get some Plexiglas to seal the window and have the guy make us a matching outside curved window to match the other side for $400.00. We cut the Plexiglas to fit in the window and place the new curved piece on top. Although we can't open that side we still have the skylight and other side for ventilation. It looks good and doesn't leak.
