A camping forum for VW bus and camper owners.
Welcome! I suggest reading this older thread that was a response to the same question: http://vwcamperfamily.ning.com/forum/topics/i-m-in-my-due-diligence...
After that, if you have specific questions, let us know and people will be happy to chime in.
WHAT I FIND IS BEST IS TO DRIVE SLOWLY UP AND DOWN STREETS KEEPING AN EYE OPEN FOR THAT FAMILIAR SHAPE THAT ONLY VW BUSES HAVE. I FIND THEM ALL THE TIME BY JUST SCOUTING OUT NEIGHBORHOODS. THAT'S HOW I FOUND MY 68 TRANSPORTER. YOU MAY GET SOME "NO'S" WHEN YOU ASK IF THEIR BUS IS FOR SALE BUT ALL YOU NEED IS ONE "YES". GOOD LUCK ON YOUR SEARCH........
Looking for a van. Try Samba, craigslist, Ebay, Go Westy has a site, here. The best are the 86 to 91, campers are a lot tin top better price and you can make them into what ever you want. The west is best no rust, that's your first killer. Good luck!
