They’re not the best equipped, the fastest or the most comfortable campers out there. They’re quirky to drive and the technology is dated and sometimes a challenge to use. An odd choice for my classic camper van then!
To me, none of this really matters though. It has its own unique character and story. Without doubt, it’s my fave vehicle ever! People wave at you whilst you’re driving around. You stop places and have complete strangers come up and start conversations with you about it. So many stories, from so many different people. It does way more than merely just get you from A to B.
Yes it’s cool. No I’m not going to paint it!
This is a standard reply to one of my most commonly asked questions. The bus was made in Germany in 1963/1964. It is still mostly original and solid in all the right places! Sure, the paint is faded and worn through in areas. That’s to be expected after all these years. Especially if you spent most of those early years in sunny California. You only get original once, and this bus shows its age with pride!
