Volkswagen History

1963 Volkswagen Transporter

Share on:

The Volkswagen Microbus was one of the earliest vehicles to be offered as a camper from the factory. Promoted as 'the handiest, handsomest motorized house you could possibly wish to enjoy', the Westfalia was equipped with two upholstered bench seats that converted into a bed, a front seat that could be configured to sleep children, a wardrobe and storage space. Its specially designed tent significantly increased the living area. Demand was so brisk that Detroit manufacturers such as Ford, Chevrolet and Dodge responded by offering their own small vans outfitted with built-in beds, tables, kitchenettes and pop-up roofs.
