Berlin Bulli Changes Name

25 09 2012

Berlin Bulli is no more. But the Berlin-based VW campervan rental has reinvented itself as Hippie Bus Berlin, a subdivison of a Berlin classic car rental company called Classicdepot. I had mentioned in a previous post that Volkswagen was suing Berlin Bulli for illegally using the name “Bulli”. Now an extra web page from Hippie Bus Berlin explains in German that they have given up the fight and changed their name. Their fleet is still the same and consists of thirteen bay window Volkswagen buses. The majority are orange and white late bay Westfalia campervans, but they also have a T2a campervan, a T2b ice cream van (see earlier post) and a T2a cherry picker on offer.

Renting a T2 in Berlin – cool!

You call them ‘orange and white late bay Westfalia campervans’ – are those also ‘T2s’ ??

Bay window or bay is just a synonym for the T2, and the late bays are the T2bs, so from 1972 – 1979. Similar as with T1 and split-window or splittie. Greetings from Berlin!
