Selling our really nice 71 Volkswagen Bus - Westfalia Edition Campmobile with pop top camper. This bus has been really well cared for and has tons of recent new parts and maintenance from the last 2 years. Ready to drive and use right now. Runs strong and drives well.
This is one of the most desirable years of the bay window bus (IMO). This bus looks great and gets you tons of thumbs ups, compliments and stories from people you meet.
It features a clean and complete Westfalia interior including the child's front and overhead cots and is 90% original from 51 years ago.

** We took many adventures in this bus and loved them all. But one trip of note- Me, my wife, 2 teen kids, 2 dogs and our lizard went on a 4750 Mile trip in August 2020. From Denver to Wyoming to Idaho to Seattle all the way down the coast to San Diego and then through Las Vegas back to Denver. Stopping at the most amazing places and seeing so much awesomeness. We did it in 17 days and it is one of the best trips of my life. The memories we made were amazing. I would've liked to make it take longer but the kids had to be back to start school. My daughter actually started college sitting at the table with her laptop on the drives in between stopping. I'll throw some trip pics in the ad.
