About this RV

1978 Volkswagen Bus Westfalia Camper

It's a turn-key classic camper that's just begging for a road trip.

It's impressive in any crowd. Clear headlights, tinted rear windows, and upgraded 15-inch wheels. This camper includes an AC interior. The interior also has a desirable look making sure it stays vintage but feels fresh. These VWs are great because the driver gets a commanding view of the road in this forward-control van. There are classic elements, like the large steering wheel, a gearshift within easy reach, and VDO gauges. Plus, this is upgraded with later model high-back bucket seats, shoulder belts, and an AM/FM/CD/DVD touchscreen stereo w/Bluetooth for entertainment. There's even cold-blowing air conditioning, which is always a terrific upgrade in a living space. In the back, it has the combined feeling of a living room and bedroom w/laminate wood flooring, sink, electrical outlets with multiple batteries and an exterior hookup, collapsible table, and plenty of storage. The iconic pop-up camping roof with clean canvas sides maximizes the living space so does the Fiamma retractable awning that turns anywhere you park into a front porch experience.

The engine bay is a period correct fuel-injected 2000cc, and it fires up eagerly, like a well-respected robust VW motor should. The acceleration is smooth, and so is the shifting on the four-speed manual transmission. This has a confident feeling on the road thanks to front disc brakes and grippy Falken sport tires afforded by the wheel upgrade.

If you're looking for the ultimate home away from home in a classic you've found it.

There is sleeping room for 5. 4 adults and child cot that runs across front passenger seats.

Smoking and pets are prohibited. If in violation of this policy the deposit will be collected for proper sanitation of vehicle.

The VW camper van was wonderful. Owners keep it in top notch condition and we had great fun with it. SOOOO many people stopped to tell us they loved "our" van, gave us "Thumbs Up" and clapped as we drove by. It was awesome. The owners made the experience just wonderful. Thomas was very kind and helpful, could be reached easily and made our time with the VW Van very memorable. Absolutely would highly recommend them and their camper van.

Where to begin...

The first emotion is an obvious one... happiness. Happy to have been able to have the VW Westfalia experience we'd been looking for. A delight for every day we had her. Enjoyment for all the waves and smiles she brought from others. Happiness even for those sounds of that classic VW experience. It was pure happiness to have been able to spend the weekend with the one you love.…
