We had so many great pics from the VW Microbus festival, Buses by the Bridge in Lake Havasu, Arizona, that they didn’t all fit in one post. Here is some more Microbus Mania for you! Most of these folks were camping in their micobuses and had them opened up so you could see how they were set up inside. There isn’t a lot of room in these tiny RVs of yesteryear, but they’re just so cute. Enjoy!
The “submarine hatch” model was the first to have a top that opened. These clever folks put a tent on top for a little weather protection:
Some guys had it made in the shade with wonderful big awnings.
Now here’s a paint job that caught our eye!! Wouldn’t it be crazy to look in the rearview mirror and see this!
And how’d ya like to wake up to vivid orange all around you?! It’s a bit different than the color tones of today’s RVs…
For the Deadheads, there was a Grateful Dead Mobile trimmed with the iconic dancing bears and the turtle from the cover of the Terrapin Station album.
The front was tie dye, of course!
A guy was selling super cute coolers shaped like VW Microbuses. The whole roof — surfboards and all — opened up, and there was plenty of room inside for a bunch of beer and ice. He had one in tow behind his real Microbus…
One vintage bus had a great caption painted on the side:
Another guy managed to squeeze three big pooches into his bus somehow!
What a fun rally — far out, man!
