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.
A “small hotel” you could park almost anywhere.
Business in the front, party…on the sides?
Lots of text on this one.
Hey, 27 mpg is pretty good.
Station Wagons…that was a long time ago.
Welcome to the Hotel Volkswagen (“such a lovely place”).
Take the Bus, from 1977.
Makes a great beach camper, too.
Looks like we have a winner.

My 1979 “Westy” is still going strong. When we use the tent option, people can’t help but come over to tell us the stories of their childhood. I hope to pass it on to my grandson in 15 years. I wonder if anyone will know how to drive a stick shift then or still be using gas in cars, haha.
Anyone notice that the family camping scene was photographed in a studio? Check the lighting, the possible shadow on the painted backdrop and how the sand was spread on the floor so as to not leave any tire tracks.
The kid looks like he is standing on a piece of plywood and is the dog stuffed? The adults certainly are!
Footprints in the sand?
