Camper Conversion: 2002 Volkswagen Golf TDI

The TDI GOlf is known for its ruggedness and fuel efficiency, but it isn’t known as a good car for sleeping at night. Sure, you could drop the rear seat backs and maybe sleep occasionally in a stock Golf, but if you plan to living in a MkIV, you are going to need to get creative with some wood and your custom furniture skillz. Find this 2002 Volkswagen Golf TDI offered for $10,000 in Pescadero, CA via craigslist. Tip from Matt V.
