Taking a bad idea to its illogical conclusion: The 1974 PaCoMobile Camper

Inadequate in every way imaginable, the PaCoMobile camper is built on a Volkswagen microbus base. 1600cc of pure unadulterated meh will not 'power' this heavy, unsightly, and probably under-sprung monstrosity up a hill.

Bring A Trailer:

This 1974 Volkswagen Type 2 is said to be one of approximately 50 examples that were modified by the PaCoMobil company of Mexico City, Mexico. Fitted with a camper conversion, this T2 Transporter is finished in two-tone blue and white over a beige interior, and the camper features a partially finished interior including a sink, a tiled backsplash, U-shaped seating with a center table, a Hisense refrigerator, a lavatory, a chandelier, and more. Power is provided by a 1.6-liter air-cooled flat-four mated to a four-speed manual transmission. The vehicle reportedly was recently driven from Michoacán, Mexico to Austin, Texas and was acquired by the selling dealer in early 2020. This bay-window Bus is believed to be one of only six surviving PaCoMobil snail campers, and it is now offered at no reserve with paperwork from the 1970s and a clean Texas title in the selling dealership's name.

To note a few positives: this vehicle is younger than I am and the air for cooling the engine is free.
