For a long time VW camper vans had been considered as vehicles for hippies but in last few years they have become the iconic vehicles among many people who enjoy freedom and camping.
Known as minibuses they were first introduced in 1950 and almost instantly gained popularity because they offered an inexpensive way to take the family on a lovely vacation.
They were more affordable than standard recreational vehicles and offered much better fuel economy than any other RV..
The first VW camper vans were originally marketed as family vehicles and were designed to sleep two adults and two children while newer models can sleep up to four adults.
Except the sleeping space, as a standard VW camper vans include small kitchen with sink, gas stove, small water tank to provide running water and refrigerator. Higher-end options include wireless internet, satellite TV, pop up roof, sliding side door, rotating front seat, large windows and additional cabinet space.

Now these camping vans come equipped considering they usually pop up in ads for VW Volkswagen camper vans for sale.
I have not seen a VW for years. In 1990, I believe somewhere in that time frame, I saw one on the road and thought about the television show, Mod Squad.
I remember Peggy Lipton and the guys traveling around in the Volkswagen camper, all fixed up for sleeping and partying.
That was a hot show back in its time.
Campgrounds are good places to see all the different things people travel with when camping and moving around to different parks.
If you ever run across these types of campers, you should actually check it out just to see what the inside has to offer. They really are quite cozy inside. I mean the pop up camper trailer offers more, but these little units are quaint.
I like looking around the campgrounds and talking to people who travel different ways, and I tell you, I have seen just about everything. I met some people in Massachusetts when I was out there, they had 1991 VW and it looked nice inside. The man had done the whole inside himself and I have to say, it was very nicely done and decorated beautifully.
