Modulars have stayed very consistent over the cycle, though I'd argue some of that in value, as their part counts are inflated by a lot of 1x1 tiles, plates, and studs. It also doesn't really account to the perceived value of the set, or the minifigure mix.

that guy wrote:If you count studs front to back in the photo it's about 30-32 studs MAX. So it's a bit smaller than the camper. I think the Camper if I remember right is about 40ish studs long.

That ought to make them roughly the same scale. A real-life VW T1 van is around 4.2 metres long, a Mini Cooper 3.1 metres. But looking at pictures of both sets I can't help feeling that the Camper will be "too small" next to the Mini.

So far I've had no interest in the VW Camper Van, but assuming I do get the Mini then the pair could give off a nice countryside camping / picnic vibe... As my local toy store has a Camper box gathering dust and dents in the corner I might be able to get it at a discount someday.
