It’s no secret how we feel about the almighty Volkswagen Bus Camper here at Van Clan. We’re not sure whether its the look, the way that they drive, the iconic history that surrounds them, or all three of those points put together that makes us drool when one goes past. What we do know is that they are one of the driving gods greatest creations, and for that we are eternal disciples.
What gets our pulses racing more than anything though is a Volkswagen Bus Camper that looks the part, one that has stayed true to its nature and has kept that retro theme that has become synonymous with surfing, summer and swell vibes. This T2 from Danbury Campervans ticks all of those boxes and more. Don’t just take our word for it though, take a look yourself.
Retro Themed VW T2 Volkswagen Bus Camper – The Only Way To Ride.
Take…a…look…at…that! No, you haven’t just stepped back in time, this is a beautiful looking VW T2 Volkswagen Bus Camper that looks as though it’s been untouched by time. Two tone paint job, original VW hardware and the classic pop top – we can hear your mouth’s watering from here.
Before we go any further, let’s tell you a little bit about Danbury Motorcaravans. Danbury are a small family run business with an engineering background that’s second to none. Based in Bristol, they convert the the retro style VW T2, the more modern T5 and the Ford Transit camper into mid sized motor caravans with a difference. Let’s take a look inside this T2 so that you can see their handy work first hand!
The interior doesn’t disappoint, with every feature and minor detail staying true to that iconic retro theme. The original lythmore style tartan design on the soft furnishings and the curtains compliment the sky blue paint job throughout, making you think of happier days filled with Beach Boys or California Girls (whichever your preference).
This Volkswagen Bus Camper has everything that you might need and more if you’re planning on joining the vandwellers that turns heads when they park up in the campsite. A hidden microwave, full working hob and 12v fridge provide everything that you need to whip up some tasty grub on the go, and when you’re done in the kitchen you can use the space for some extra seating.
No retro themed Volkswagen Bus Camper would be complete without the obligatory stowaway table – it just wouldn’t be the same! The table can easily be removed if you plan to do a bit of yoga with the pop top up, and it finishes off the living area perfectly. Wait a minute; these things usually have a rock & roll bed too, right?
Right! Get those curtains drawn and your VW T2 turns into a 5 star hotel on wheels. Danbury have even carried on the colour scheme into the bedding too – these guys have thought of everything!
Danbury are taking old VW T2’s and making them great again (didn’t Donald Trump say something similar?). They’re restoring them back to their former retro glory, selling incredible motors for an extremely reasonable price. Plus with a host of optional extras available they really do give you something to get insanely excited over.
The price for a standard VW T2 Volkswagen Bus Camper with a 3/4 width bed starts at just over £36’000, which is a small price for a piece of automotive brilliance. If you’re in the market for a retro VW then look no further. Check out the Danbury website for more information!
