Owners of VW buses (also known as campervans) will tell you that it can be a home-away-from-home on wheels. I traveled all over the United States, Canada and Mexico in VW buses back in the 1960s and 1970s, so I know from experience that most of them don’t have air conditioning and none of them are as fast or comfortable as today’s SUVs and RVs. However, what they lack in road worthiness they make up for in charm.
When outfitting a VW bus for camping, curtains and a good bed are the first order of business, followed by a small stove, ice chest and storage cabinets. Over the decades since the VW bus was first introduced, owners have outfitted them with a wide variety of custom furnishings, like the newly refurbished VW campervan shown above.
