We’ve always loved the old-school Volkswagen Microbus. But this one from 1963 truly won us over.
The bus is a fully restored, classically painted, 23-window, super deluxe version, with a safari windshield, full-length sunroof, and 50–brake horsepower four-cylinder engine. But what makes it even better is the matching 1967 Eriba Puck camping trailer, complete with a two-burner propane stove, sink, dining table, pop-up roof, and twin beds. The bus is a rare find, but this trailer is an endangered species, with only four others known in existence.
Unfortunately, we can only dream as the van and trailer were sold at auction earlier this year.
