A Volkswagen microbus tent, for camping or just hanging out

After briefly scrambling every available neuron my brain had to offer, this VW Van shaped tent makes perfect sense.

You wanted to go camping in your VW camper, but it wouldn't start! Instead you take your VW sized tent, authentic to a 1965 T1, and cram on in!


I love camping in my VW Vanagon Westy.
