I'm not on FB anymore but I'd definitely be in for a PP rally. I'm at River Bend Campground in Hiawassee, Ga. next Monday and will post more pics, new paint job, inside pics.

Playpac Reunion????

Hey guys, have you heard about The Second Annual Florida Eggs-travaganza?
It will be held at : Spirit of the Suwanee Music Park in Live Oak Florida , January 12-15 2018. If one or more of my Playpac "adopted parents" plans to attend I would be happy to host our own little shindig. Please let me know when you book your space.
Happy trails,
Steve Whysel (PaPac)

VW finally got it!!!

Steve - I thought you might like a picture of the new (to me) tow vehicle for my Playpac. Its a 1983 VW Vanagon Westfalia with an air-cooled 2.0 engine. It took VW designers 10 years to catch up to your vision of the future!

I knew as soon as I got my Playpac home that it would one day be pulled behind a Vanagon and I finally landed one. They look great together. My wife and I are in the Playpac honeymoon suite and the kiddos are in the Vanagon Westfalia.

Thank you so much for your vision!!!!! I love waking up to look at the trees through my dome skylight.

Good day, love love what you've built, found and brought back to life! Wish I could convince you to visit my wife and me in Florida only 45 min to Disney Land in Orlando. She has never seen one. Fortunately my two kids did get to spend some time in one of the first ones built.
Next time you are at a camp ground w/ family please send a picture.
I just celebrated my 80th bd and still hummin along. Using the VW camper was a great solution to the privacy situation. If you would email me a picture of the camper and Playpac that would be much appreciated. Did you convert the closet to a shower or do you just use it with a port-a-potty? Well that's it for today and happy trails to to and your family

Steven, just a thought. Hover over the photo, right-click, and select 'save image as' in your photos folder on your computer. I just did that myself, so I could send a copy to my daughter. She'll love seeing this rig.

Steve if you private message me with your e-mail address I'd be happy to send you some pictures that way.

In the closet, I have installed a proper flush toilet with a small holding tank underneath as my wife does not like the pits at campgrounds.

I've put a tank with 40 gallons of fresh water under one of the seats with a water pump so we have running water. I put a large bank of batteries under the other seat. Also a floor standing air conditioner in the kitchen area next to a large chest freezer running at refrigerator temperatures. I have some flexible solar panels I can put out and we can run in the wild indefinitely as long as we have sun. Without any charging I can run for three full days just on the batteries alone.

You said hello to me in my build thread early on but I've done a lot since then. The link is below in my signature block of this post. Glad to hear you are doing well! We are in Ohio but if I would ever make it to Florida, yours is the first stop I would want to make.

New to the PlayPac fold

Hi all. I just purchased a PlayPac trailer and am thankful I found this site. Not sure of my trailer's history but purchased it in NC. The insides have been gutted so its just the fiberglass shell on the original trailer frame. Learning the uniqueness of my lil' gem has me inspired along with all your great posts and pics.

Here are some before shots. Working on how to get to the finished camper but can't wait to get my girl on the road.

I guess my penchant to explore new avenues which led me to invent the PLAYPAC, just Led me to publish my first book. The Adventurous Squirrels of Cool Waters Cove, an illustrated children’s book for ages 2-8. It is not only fun but more importantly it contains two important messages for young minds,
It can be purchased at Amazon, other sites or at your local book store. Follow us at
