Accessories | Headbanger


Lowd Vans Headbanger is a slimline overhead storage unit for T2 kombis.

Designed in response to repeated customer requests, we originally thought we didn't need one but now cannot imagine the van without it. The perfect spot to stowaway picnic rug, blanket, towels, sunhats, umbrellas etc. And the finishing touch to your camper van.

The Headbanger has a generous drop down door opening that spans the front and underside. Like all Lowd Vans cabinetry the hardware supplied is high quality European specification. The unit is secured in place by a pair of powder coated stainless steel brackets. Despite the name, this cabinet has a softened front edge (thanks to a rounded hardwood moulding) so if you do sit up too fast, it's a bump rather than a bang!

The Headbanger fits a T2 camper or tin-top. We have based the roof profile on our own T2 van but as post-factory modifications vary, some adjustment may be required. 

Lowd Vans products are CNC cut to order from 12mm FSC film-faced exterior-grade birch plywood (sustainable, lightweight & water resistant) and come flat-pack, ready for self assembly. Choose from four accent colours: Grey, Black, *Yellow*, White.

  • Shipping

    How long will it take for my order to be ready?

    Lowd Vans products are cut to order. This means we can offer a choice of colours and layouts without wasting materials or holding unwanted stock. It usually takes around 4 weeks from placing your order to despatch.

    Does it cost extra for shipping?
    Shipping costs are calculated at checkout according to your location and order weight. You are welcome to pick up from our Melbourne studio if you are local.

    Can I pick up in my car or do I need a trailer?

    Each cabinet is bundled separately so a full assembly will fit into the back of a hatch back car with the seats down.

  • Assembly

    How long do the cabinets take to assemble?

    A typical cabinet should take about 3-4 hours to put together. A complete assembly will take a long weekend. We include comprehensive, fully-illustrated instructions to guide you all the way.

    I'm not very handy, do you offer an assembly service?

    We have a growing network of contacts and can usually recommend a local installation specialist near you.

    Do you offer any customisation?

    We have developed a broad range of products to meet most needs, with a number of standard variations and add-on accessories available. We are not able to undertake individual custom projects.

  • Installation

    How do the cabinets attach to the van?

    The cabinets bolt to each other to form a rigid unit. We then recommend screwing into the floor and side panels of the van as required. The Island cabinet is designed to be easily removable with two bolts to fix through to the rear of the passenger seat bulkhead.

    My kombi has a deluxe upholstery trim, will the cabinets still fit?

    Our cabinets have been designed to fit a basic T2 spec interior. If you have padded bulkhead seat backs or a raised floor we recommend you take detailed measurements and check key dimensions with us before placing your order.

    I love your designs but will they fit a T3 or a Splitty?

    We are working on developing designs to suit other popular classic VW models for release in the near future.
