Outside Online on the VW Westfalia

Katie Arnold at Outside offers a lovely and personal view of the Volkswagen camper. "Some had cheerful curtains, others propane stoves and fold-out tables and all-wheel-drive, but they all embodied a sense of wanderlust and freedom. The chronology's a little fuzzy—this was, after all, the counterculture's most celebrated fetish item—but the universal appeal of a VW camper van, by any name, is obvious. It's a compact way to bring the basic comforts of home on the road with you. It's the ultimate family adventure vehicle." I love mine.
