If I were to dream up a camper trailer, I think it might be Dub-Box, but it’s already been done. After all, I love the blend of vintage style with modern technology and convenience, and what says that better than a camper trailer crafted from a vintage VW van? That’s right, I told you it was awesome.

The vans are crafted by Dub-Box USA and each van, or trailer, or whatever it is, is custom built to order. This is something that most manufacturers limit very harshly, but not so with Dub-Box.
Here’s their flagship camper, with its pop-up open and awning extended.
If you’re a Volkswagen fan, you may be cringing right about now, imagining all of the beautiful vintage steel being taken off the market forever. But don’t worry because these creations are 100% fiberglass! No VW campervans have been hurt in the process.
So, what all can you customize on these babies? Pretty much everything, including the kitchen-counter. Customization includes colors and patterns for:
- flooring and

In addition to their incredibly cool campers, Dub-Box will also customize one of their trailer models to outfit your mobile business. Need a food truck? Not only can they do that, but send over your county regulations and they will make sure your trailer comes properly equipped to pass inspection.

That’s not all, they’re also building their own furniture!
Even if you’re not good, you’ll look good playing on this VW billiard table.
I’ll talk more about the campers in a minute, but I had to share this with you too, Dub-Box is developing their own line of VW bus inspired fiberglass furniture. They feature two pieces on their site right now, a super hip entertainment center, formed to mimic the rear end of a VW bus, and a pool table, that looks as if the van were chopped down and fitted with felt.
Dub-Box camper models
This camper is their flagship model. Starting at just over $20,000, the camper is 12 x 5 feet and has a 6’6” interior height, with the pop-up top popped. Built to resemble a VW bus minus the cab, this one has a cool pop-top with canvas sides, ala the Vanagon and dub bus campers of yesteryear.

While the pop-top provides stand up room inside, the features list ensures your comfort. The camper comes equipped with a Hob sink/stove combo, refrigerator, hot and cold shower, clear and gray water tanks, and a stowable dining table for extra room. Sleeping quarters for two are found in the convertible L shaped sofa.

The Dinky is a smaller version of the camper, without the pop-up. Perfect for the nomad on the go, or the quick weekend getaway. At about half the price of the bigger version (a little over $10,000), this model stands just over 10 feet long and serves more as a bedroom on wheels than a full-service camper.
Cooking, refrigeration, and solar power are optional add-ons, but water tanks are not in the design plans for this one. It does, however, feature a staggeringly light 100-pound tongue weight, meaning you could almost tow it behind your 10 speed, like this guy.
Here’s the Dinky, ready for towing, featuring a vintage style roof rack.
Dub-box offers full customization on commercial versions, like this food truck concept.
For food trucks and event trailers, Dub-Box offers a full range of features including a three-part sink for commercial dishwashing purposes, commercial grade flooring, and a Bluetooth sound system for entertaining, as well as the standard water tanks.
The pop-up roof is also integrated into the custom business trailers for full overhead height, and the event trailers can be styled with a larger pass-through for easy sales and conversing with your fans.

All in all, these are fun and unique campers, built by a company that puts a lot of detail into every single build.
Here’s the full list of models with prices. Unless you have mad skills in welding and bodywork, it’s unlikely you could match the styling at these prices, even starting from an actual Dub bus.
