Best Van Accessories for your VW

Looking for accessories to add to your VW van, but not sure which ones to pick? Well, we have you covered! Here at Wildworx, we have created a list of accessories that we think will be perfect for you and your VW T5 or VW T6 van or campervan. 

Van Accessories for your VW T5 T6 Van Modifications

What accessories can I add to my VW van?

There are multiple different accessories that you can add to your VW van. To help you out, we have listed a few of our most popular accessories that are available for you to purchase on our website. 

The first accessory that we have is a roof bar. A roof bar is a collection of bars that are attached to the roof of your VW transporter. They are typically used to carry large items such as bikes, canoes or any large luggage that you may have. You will also find that people like to add roof bars simply to allow for more space in their VW T5 or T6. 

However before you make the decision to purchase roof bars, it is really helpful to create a list of what you will be carrying on your roof bar so you can eliminate any potential damage that may occur as a result of exceeding the weight limit. 

You can also add different things to your roof bar such as a wind deflector to reduce wind noise when travelling, and make your journey run much smoother. Roof bars also increase the attractiveness of your van majorly.They definitely aren’t necessary for your van, but they do make life a lot easier. 

Our second accessory that is very popular amongst our customers are pop top roofs. Pop top roofs are definitely an awesome choice for those of you who have a campervan. They come with so many different benefits such as an extra high raise for sleeping or cooking. They can also be colour coded so they match the design of your VW, rather than making it look slightly odd. If safety is something you really care about then you will be happy to know that all the pop top roofs we offer here at Wildworx, meet standard safety requirements and are of a great quality. 

Another accessory that is extremely popular for VW vans are alloy wheels. Alloys are most certainly a must when it comes to any VW. In simple terms, alloy wheels are wheels that are formed from an alloy of aluminium & magnesium. They come with multiple different advantages for your VW such as quicker acceleration, or the ability to stop your van faster. However, it doesn’t stop there! Alloy wheels also provide great cosmetic benefits as they make your van look much more visually appealing. We have a range of beautiful different alloy wheels that are available for you to purchase on our website   


Our 4th accessory that you can purchase from our website are side bars.  They provide so many constructive benefits such as easy and safe access into your van. Not only is this extremely helpful when it comes to travelling with people who may struggle to get into the van, but they also allow for a more comfortable access into your VW. You can also add non-slip pads to your side bars to make entering your van a lot more safer, especially in poor weather conditions. 

Another practical benefit side bars come with is that they act like a shield and protect the outside of your van from any road debris that may hit the sides when you are travelling. For the cosmetic display, sidebars increase the attractiveness of your van by giving your VW a more contemporary look. 

These are only a few of the accessories that are available for you to purchase for your VW. All the prices for them are on the website. If you have any questions regarding the accessories, please do not hesitate to contact us.

How much do accessories cost?

There is no specific cost for accessories as it entirely depends on what you do. Factors such as where you buy the accessory from can influence the price, but what you want exactly will determine the overall price. If you are on a tight budget, you may think that buying second hand or really cheap accessories is something that you will want to do. However, you will tend to find that when it comes to accessories you will get what you pay for. Of course you may be lucky and manage to get something good for a decent price, but that is not always certain. If you are unsure about anything, you should always read the reviews and other factors beforehand. 


What is the difference between a VW T5 and a VW T6?

Considering the VW T5 & T6 both look insanely similar on the exterior, people tend to question what the differences are exactly. For starters, the VW T6 engine is actually a lot more environmentally friendly as it emits fewer pollutants into the earth’s atmosphere. The Volkswagen T6 has also been made in order to reduce both road & engine noise when it comes to driving, and also a better & more improved gear transition to make the driving experience a lot more comfortable. But, these changes do come with a price. The VW T6 is obviously more expensive than the T5, meaning that if you are on a budget and do not wish to spend a lot then it is probably best to go for the VW T5. However, if you are more than happy to spend that extra bit of money for these changes, then you should totally go for the VW T6.

Top tips when it comes to purchasing accessories for your VW

Top tips are definitely handy when it comes to purchasing accessories for your VW van. Whether it is to do with accessories just for your VW or any type of van, you will most definitely want to keep these tips in mind.

Our first tip is to do with the financial side of things. It is always best to set aside some sort of benefit, especially when it comes to purchasing accessories. This is because you find that a lot of people tend to spend a ridiculous amount of money on accessories that will not benefit them in any way and are completely unnecessary. If you are in a position where you are able to spend as much money as you want, then researching is definitely the best option. There is no point in wasting money on things that will not provide you with any benefits whatsoever. 

Our second tip that we have for you is to research. What we mean by this is that you should definitely try researching things such as: what the accessory is, what does the accessory do, how much is it on average, how will it benefit you, and any other questions that will help you out majorly. It is also best to do some research on the company that will be adding the accessory for you or the supplier that you are going to buy the accessory from, just to ensure that everything meets standard safety requirements and is also of a great quality. Things such as reading the reviews or taking a look at any social media accounts that they may have can be really helpful. 

Our third tip is mainly for those who are considering adding the accessory themselves. We cannot stress how important it is to measure and plan. Measuring and planning is such an important thing that you will definitely need to do when it comes to this DIY task. 


Do your research!

It is always best to do a little bit of research beforehand, especially when it comes to accessories. Having some form of basic knowledge on this topic enables you to: save money, reduce any unwanted stress & hassle, and also potentially make the process a lot quicker.  By knowing exactly what it is you want and why is also another massive benefit that researching provides. 


What about safety?

The safety of our customers is something that has and always will be our top priority. To ensure this, everything that is available for you to purchase from us meets all standard safety requirements and is of a great quality! So if the safety of something, such as an accessory, is what worries you then you will be glad to know that you are in very safe hands. 


Can I complete anything myself?

Of course you can! Anything is achievable when it is done safely and properly. As long as you are certain that you will be able to successfully complete whatever it is you wish to do, then you should totally go for it! A lot of people actually prefer to fit van accessories themselves, rather than paying a company to do it, in order to save quite a bit of money.

However, if this is something that you are considering to do, you are definitely going to need to be aware of the ‘requirements’. Before you start anything, we strongly suggest that you measure absolutely everything that is going to be involved during the process. There have been situations where people have ordered something and when it arrived it didn’t fit properly. This can actually be really frustrating, disappointing, and also very time consuming as you will have to send it back and then wait for a new one to arrive. 

We also highly recommend that you plan out everything. By doing this, you may find yourself in a position where you can reduce the length of the process as you know exactly what you are doing and how you are doing it.

Another thing that you may also want to do is ask any friends or family who will be happy to help you if you are in need of assistance.  However, if you are not comfortable with completing it yourself then having a professional company complete it for you is most certainly the best option.
