The cutest RV in the world? It’s gotta be a contender!

The staff of RVtravel.com has voted. And the final tally showed that we all wanted to own this vintage RV, which just so happens to be for sale! Is this about the cutest rig you have ever seen? It turns out there were fewer than 1,000 of them made, but that was a long time ago. Our staff decided we would pool our money to buy this as our staff vehicle, to take turns using on weekends! We know we’ll make a lot of friends at the campgrounds we’d visit who would want to know more about this pint-sized beauty!

We also thought this would be pretty cool to enter into parades for a little publicity!

The Volkswagen Split Window Jurgen Camper/Motorhome Bus was built in South Africa in 1966, converted from a 1961 VW bus. It’s no speed demon, for sure. Its 2.0-liter flat-four engine develops 70 horsepower, so this definitely means you’ll be stuck in the slow lane heading up hills.

Inside, it’s cute as can be and even manages to squeeze in a double bed. Watch the video to get a better idea about what this is all about. Listen to the purr of that VW engine!

Oh, if you want to buy this Volkswagen camper, or learn more, it’s on eBay for $93,000. If you want to see it in person, it’s in Miami.

Nice, we live over at coast in California that VW camper would sell fast here ! VW vans sell for about $20 to 30 thousand here depending on condition. I would buy something like that in a heartbeat !

The 1961 vans had gear reduction boxes on each rear wheel that helped a lot on the hills with a underpowered engine. They might be lucky and have what they call Alpine gears as they had 4 different gear ratio’s with the Alpine being the lowest. Still I wouldn’t pull into the passing lane with it but it’ll get there.

Cute but wonder if it is able to go up hills? I remember riding in one time going up a hill. We got out and could almost run up the hill faster than it could travel.

I had a ’65 bus camperized, and i can guarantee you that this rig will not only be in the slow lane, but will be in second gear on many mountain grades.
