Featured prominently in the show is a VW bus from the 1970s era.

The company who made it, Dub Box USA, makes several models of fiberglass camper trailers (and even food trucks) based on the popular VW bus. They’re not faithful reproductions though, but rather fiberglass molds built to resemble the iconic van design.
