Overview

My Westfalia "Buttercup" was picked up in Great Falls Montana in 2017 and driven here to the Bay Area with my 9 year old co-pilot. What an adventure! The road trip/camping was a blast. Glad to report we made it safe and sound but it was not without some drama. Her ticker (engine) was not the best and she needed more than a few tows to get us on home. Since we've been home I have had her engine, transmission, tires, shocks, clutch, fuel pump and brakes replaced. I am happy to say she is now road worthy. My Buttercup is not for the faint of heart. She has manual transmission, no power steering, no power windows, and no air-conditioning. This is a "Westy" adventure that you will remember fondly for years to come. You will truly enjoy the unique driving and camping experience of this classic wonder. You could drive a more updated camper van but they are not as cool or fun to drive as my Buttercup. Everyone loves the Westfalia. It makes people smile and dream, more than any other camper van can. We just completed another road trip (with no drama) and have nothing but great memories to share. We are now regular campers and just love all her features. The best is the pop up top that allows us to sleep under the stars in style and comfort. Other features include a working propane stove, a sink, a small refrigerator (works best with electric hookup), and captain chair up front. If you like camping off the grid, as I do, don't worry she is equipped with a solar panel and dual batteries. We were only two on our recent adventure but feel she will fit 3-4 comfortably.

It was a truly amazing experience. Patricia was an awesome owner to deal with and the van was exactly what we wanted for our adventure. Thank you Patricia for allowing us to have our magical adventure in "Buttercup".

Patricia was incredibly helpful and thoughtful with Buttercup, she made our trip so easy, we had everything we needed to feel comfortable in the middle of nowhere. Reaching her for any question was super easy, even during our trip when we wanted to extend for a few more days. If you love VW’s and...
