SOLD: 1977 Love Bug in Utah $6,000

1977 Love Bug
by Fabricated products of Tripoli Iowa

Here’s the skinny. I have lowered the price being that I have had a lot of tire kickers and have become a beaten man.
Since the original post I have sanded, painted and sealed the tongue....exposed the serial # and clear coated it and also put a new jack on it..... but wait that’s not all. I will include 2 delux 12 v batteries that you could use to modify the current...(.no pun intended) system.
Swing on by and pick up your Love Bug I need to move on to my Bambi.

No Bathroom being that is smaller than one.

13’ 6” L X 7’ H X 6’8” 750 lbs.,
Propane (w tank)- refrigerator (runs on Ac or Dc as well) 2 burner stove and heater. Some new lines
Ac and Dc interior lighting, 12 volt battery and inverter (produces limited ac 110 supply from the 12 v. battery) 25ft. 12ga power cord with various adaptors.
Sink with 12 v water pump and 10 gallon water tank
Storage beneath rear seats which convert to bed as shown. Can be made into table area but floor mount is not mounted. Mount post and tabletop/bed included. Front awning lifts up as you would expect but has one of the detent latches or what ever they are called missing but easily stowes. The front seat/couch is also a bed or bunk bed that can uncomfortably sleep a 6ft. Teenager, The back bed is great and cozy for two adults
Outside lighting is LED markers and tail.
New 10 degree, down, forward facing torsion axle. New 13” custom wheels and tires, spare is identical and not a small, odd rim or cheap tire. Mounted with a solid rear tire mount that also rests on the rear bumper. 13” class C trailer radials 3 of them. No tire cover. 7” drums with electric brakes. 7 blade connector to vehicle.

Pitted and could use a new clear coat. Some minor blemishes or screw holes, old taillights and door latch, (shown in Pictures) The door has the typical egg issue that I have not fully figured out but have managed to have it seal and shut. Has an outside lock and an inside dead bolt besides the original latch mechanism that seems to be a problemo on these. Lots of winter and rainy trips presented no leak problems. Faux wood floor Linoleum.
New skylight/vent. Roof has minor pits but no damage. Awning mount is also attached.
Rear passenger window has 1 pane of glass that slides down but not out due to aluminum catch broken.

I have owned this for about 10 years and have pulled it nearly 50 k all over the western US handles very well behind my Volvo s80 6cyl and never has impeded traffic. Has gone through hundreds of miles of snowy roads packed and or not plowed and handles like a race car. I am very sad to sell and have hesitated for the last year but that only let me work out some minor issues. I can send you pics of anything you like. I’m hoping to be able to post about 20 here and several other sites. Delivery for a nonrefundable fee is a possibility as well. Why not one more trip in it. This trailer is a virgin and has never been named anything other than the Love Bug so it’s got that going for it too.
No scamp logo and pin striping being that it IS NOT A SCAMP. It is a LOVE BUG but has it’s own ugliness that is extremely cute and always a conversation starter. I insist on pointing out as much as possible to buyers both good and bad as to not mislead anyone on this hidden gem.

I sent you some contact info. 1000.00 down and I’m on my way. A drive to Denver sounds like fun.
