After 5 years working together Cheri and Trevor decided they what they really wanted was to retire and spend more time in their Westfalia traveling around – yet find a way to continue to offer our products – so we have closed down our online shop – Cheri says “Yay! No more sitting at the computer!”
Where to Shop for Authentic Westfalia Products? You can order wholesale or retail products from various sources:
From us – parts that we manufacture still – just send Cheri an email firstname.lastname@example.org
In Canada – wholesale and retail inquiries through Frank Condelli.

Way back in 1996, devoted Westfalia camper van owner Trevor Reid brought his van into a repair shop to get some work done on it. Imagine his surprise when it was returned to him with its skylight painted over!
After doing some research, Trevor discovered that it would cost him over $400 to get a replacement skylight from Volkswagen Canada. Since he was a professional welder and fabricator, he decided to engineer a mold for himself—and The Skylight Guy was born.
Over the years The Skylight Guy has expanded to offer many other Westfalia products and Westfalia camper van parts, in addition to the skylights we’re famous for.
In 2010, Trevor and his soul mate, Cheri, aka “The Skylight Gal,” bought Delta Six Industries, the original parts manufacturer for the Westfalia van. They acquired the original manufacturer molds (OEM) for Westfalia products such as skylights, the complete skylight refit kit, hook-up inlets, faucets, water level sensors, water and battery indicators, and much more.
Trevor and Cheri spent their first two years as owners of these molds lovingly refurbishing them and learning more about the German engineering that originally enabled these parts to meet Westfalia’s famously high standards. During that time, they developed the optimal manufacturing quality control process to ensure they offer you the quality you desire and expect from German manufacturing.
So if you value quality and true authenticity, The Skylight Guy products are for you!
