The Volkswagen camper van is one of the most iconic RVs of all time. With unmistakable lines and plenty of windows, this popular camping mobile stood out from the crowd. Take a digital walk back in time and see how Volkswagen advertised their flagship camper model 40 and 50 years ago.
The VW Campmobile was priced at $3,049.
