Awesome Citroen 2CV Camper

13 09 2015

Now this is a truly awesome miniature campervan: A Citroen 2CV from 1962, in a cool rat-look state, with a self-made campervan conversion which, we were told, is known in the field: The original back lid is rebuilt so that it now closes over a boot extension which allows one person to sleep in the back of the car. The additional back lid at the very end doubles as breakfast table. The owner, a young French man, was on his way back home from a holiday in Poland, together with a friend. We met them on our favourite campsite in Spreewald, south of Berlin. What a cool little car!

New Zealand Splittie Campervan, re-visited!

31 01 2015

A friend just returned from a four-week-trip to New Zealand and sent me photos of this beautiful T1 split window campervan. He spotted it this January 2015 in Kerikeri on the North Island. Turns out I had spotted the very same bus in Feb 2012 during our parental leave in New Zealand as well – small world! Here is a link to the older post with some more information on this bus and also more photos. Just re-traced that this bus is one of the kombis you can rent from Kiwi Kombis. Some more detail on their web page: It is called Van Five aka ‘Coffee ‘n’ Cream’ and it is a 1962 Custom Westfalia with the 1.6Litre motor. Nice to see it is still up and going! Many thanks to Gernot for the photos!
