Alternative Syncro Camper – Camperising a Double Cab (DOKA)

A fully kitted out Syncro camper is fantastic, if not the ultimate in luxury 4WD camping or “glamping”. Jed started out his Syncro life with a Double Cab (Doppelkabine = DOKA), which is used for work in his business as a plasterer. They make an excellent platform for a daily workhorse and surprisingly comfortable camper.

With the addition of a multivan rock and roll bed and swivel bases, it is possible to sleep comfortably in the cabin – add a rooftent and you have a vehicle that can sleep 4 or 5!

The multivan seat was bought from a fella called Tony, known as alfieboy on some of the VW forums, watch out for good bits on his ebay account.

A reproduction westfalia front table and leg can be bought from Niko on brickyard, see more info on this brickyard thread.

    Yep Dokas ROCK,

    Nice vid Jed will push the price of Doka’s up undoubtedly ?

    I have been looking at the Terrain Roof Tents on E-bay for around £650 for mine.

    How about a review of what roof tents are available as a follow up Vid??????

    Awesome writeup Jed.

    We loved ours for camping but getting the two dogs in was a bind.

    Now we are ‘glamping’ as you call it with a Syncro Westy (nearly) which suits our needs better but I still miss the flexibility of the Doka.

    is it difficult to put the multivan bed?

    I have found a very good agent to ship the Doka. It will enter in California. The agent is a friend of Daryl’s { AA Transaxle} who is a friend of Chris Forrest, who I believe some of you people know. Thanks AJ

    Update, it’s now 5 months later, and my doka is still tied up with Government (BS). It has past customs but now it in the hands of department of Transportation (DOT). AJ
