Volkswagen Beetles have been whizzing down highways since the 1930s, but in the 1970s, a business turned them into lovely little tents. These Super Buggers were sold for $6,000 at the time, and a few of the unique RV hybrids still exist today.
The Super Buggers were created by a camper firm in Costa Mesa, California. The unusual campers aren’t quite as big as a typical RV; inside, there’s only enough room for the seats, some storage, and a small dining area with a two-burner stove and sink. Although there isn’t enough room for a bed, the Super Bugger is ideal for individuals who prefer to sleep under the stars on extended road excursions.
The Super Buggers, according to a 1970s advertising, get 23 to 25 miles per gallon and only weigh 250 pounds more than standard vehicles of the period. Although beds are not immediately visible in the Super Buggers in the movie or images, the advertisement claims that the vehicle has two double beds.
On the outside, the bonnet is the only feature that resembles a VW, and it still serves as a storage place. The rest of it resembles an old-school camper with small proportions.
The cabin also has a small sink and cooktop. Although there is no fancy multimedia system, an AM/FM radio and a CB give enjoyment for your journey.
The inside is a throwback to the 1970s. The floor is covered with brown and beige shag carpeting. The walls are panelled in wood, and the curtains are straight out of your grandmother’s guest room. Some ventilation is provided by an aperture panel in the ceiling.
You really don’t have to love all things vintage and retro to appreciate how cool these are!
