Portland Gear Westfalia With Scenic City Wrap

Portland, Oregon gets even more hip with this tricked out 1973 VW Westfalia roaming the streets.

Portland Gear’s 1973 Westfalia scoots around town as a mobile shop.

The Westy belongs to the Portland Gear company and is used to sell items like t-shirts and hoodies, hats and accessories touting this awesome Pacific Northwest city.

The Portland Gear bus sells clothing, hats and other accessories.


A VW van is the ultimate pop-up urban shop!


The original orange bus had a wrap with the Portland Gear logo designed by PDX Wraps. With an interior crafted and finished by Dub Box, the van now features a photo booth, wrap around couch, speakers, cooler and storage for gear.

It also has a classic pop-up for more customer headroom. Oregon-based Dub Box USA manufactures campers, food and event carts from completely new fiberglass shells.

The outside was wrapped by PDX Wraps in Portland.


The new Westy can usually be seen parked around Portland’s street markets, events, meetups and pop-up shops.

Portland Gear owner, Marcus Harvey, said,

I knew this bus would get me out and about all summer, and I could better serve the people of Portland and give them a unique experience every time they saw the bus.

The interior has a pop-up, couch and plenty of storage.


Portland Gear also has a brick and mortar store in the southwest part of the city. The store was probably built out quicker than the VW was – Portland Gear finished their store renovation in under a week.

The Westy even has its own t-shirt.
