Frankly, I suspect most of these shells will wind up used as hot dog carts.

I think it is very cool, and don't get the comment about the pop top. It looks pretty much like a Campster Pop top- are you referring to no windows? I think you could customize it on ordering. That makes it garage height and they say they can also make it garage length for you.

I think its cool too. I owned several VW buses/campers in my younger hippie days so maybe I just find it nostalgic. I think they'll have a lot of people buying them for the cool factor.

we owned a vanagon camper many years ago--it was great! loved the pop-up bed up top. but what i didn't like was having to pack up anything loose and do all of the disconnecting that comes with driving a motorhome/van- style camper each and every time we needed to go somewhere.
that got to be really old, really fast!

this being a pull-behind unit would eliminate all of that. i didn't get a good look---does the lift-up top come with screening or is it meant to simply be open as it shows???

And for the ultimate bug affectionado:


Holbrook, Arizona

Likely more whimsical than practical for use.

Here's the original "Spotted in Holbrook, Arizona" bug campervan...



It really was a working camper... Mechanics Illustrated published directions as to how to build/convert them!

Having owned a bug and a Karmann Ghia of similar vintage, all I can say is it must have been a real treat to drive, especially pulling a trailer..

might be best to wait for the bay window ones with the pop top

the 69 to 79 westys had a lot more room and extra beds up top

I've been in one of those beetle/campers. Real nice inside but I bet a stock engine is not good enough!
VW had this kind of top which would be perfect for the bus trailer
